Time to Redo

Okay - time to redo the shop. Hmmm...how to start? With a SALE! 'll let you know when it's all up & ready to shop :)

I will be putting all items that don't mesh with the new reorganization into 2 clearance sections - $10 and $20...I realize it may look odd to see a purse at the same price point as a zip pouch, but I only want to clear out specific "models". There are a few items which will be "on hold" until I have made more for their category. Actually, I am toying with keeping everything out except what is to go. I could you some opinions on this if you've got any :)

So - the "new look" ... I am whittling down what I offer style-wise...although it may not appear so to the casual observer. Ok - maybe just to me. I will still be playing around with new designs. I think it's an addiction & I just can't stop. But I won't be listing the newbies in my shops unless I plan to keep making lots of 'em. Keep a lookout though, because I may have them for sale on my sidebars.

Here's the breakdown:
Casual: large messenger bags with embroidered panels like my Serenity bag, large totes with contrast panels & embroidery/paint/buttons, medium hand painted duffles like my Tree and clutches, plus smaller wristlets/banglets.
"Dressed Up": large decorated flap purses, medium ribbon accented handbags like my Watercolor and handbags like my Venus, and small large handled handbags like my Anns.
*see below for examples
I will keep zip pouches and keychains too as accessories.

Right now I have a bunch of panels all traced out to embroider for the messenger bags. It will take a while to complete all of them since they are hand embroidered...but they will be fun :)

I like the two groups idea, because that is what we usually are thinking: "work or dress up" and "knock around." At least for me -

I'm not a big bag user, but I do get tired of carrying a backpack everywhere.... Love your casual line!

Wow...looks like you've got your work cut out for you! Great ideas to improve your line...didn't you get them from your responses in a craft fair? I bet it's nice to feel like your work is evolving and progressing into great places:)
