There’s so much going on here. Since the time I got into a proper everyday routine with no college or traveling, it’s like I have so much time to focus on my sewing and the blog. I really like it this way. It gives me more opportunity to create awesome tutorials for you girls and share them on the blog.
I’m also working on starting a designer handmade bag business so some days I also work on that. Right now, it’s in the early stages and I haven’t started taking orders yet which means I don’t have much to do. But I’m not sure how things are going to turn out once it’s up and running.
If you have an online handbag business or want to start one, I encourage you to check out Online Bag Biz blog at bagpreneur.com. There, you will find lots of helpful info on getting your handmade bag business up and running.
Sew Share Days
I’ve recently started something new which is the Sew Share Days – (LIVE Facebook/Instagram hangouts) to be able to hang out with you girls, get to know you all better and talk all about sewing because honestly speaking it gets a bit boring if I’m just sitting behind my screen without any one-on-one interactions.
