I hope your week is beginning to chug along nicely. The studio here is buzzing with activity as I struggle to finish work on five new crossbody handbags. It’s so busy, in fact, that I’m sending you somewhere else. Yep, you heard that right. But you’ll thank me after you visit. So fret not.

The Good Life. It just sounds like a happy place, don’t you think? Sarah is a wellspring of fantastic tutorials.

Oh and that necklace she’s wearing? There’s a tutorial for that, too.
