Back Problems aka Bag Solutions

A little story about my inspiration to make light-weight bags :)



Soooo, maybe not a lot of you guys know this, but I have major back/shoulder problems. It started while I was still working for the fashion company due to stress and just got worse and worse... Till I had to go on pain killers and do lots of physio therapy to solve it. It sounds overly dramatic now, but at the time it was a big issue for me. I think a lot of people go through these things and let me tell you it sucks :P.

It is still a minor issue for me now. Normally, when I go out with Erik he is sweet enough to carry by bags for me even if it is a bright pink faux-Balenciaga, but he isn't always with me. When that happens normally I just have to grin and bear it with a bag that really hurts my shoulders. You might argue that I should not carry a bag at all, but erm hello people accessories=life.



Any way - recently I began to make my own bags. I wanted something cute that I could carry around without a crazy amount …

GIVEAWAY... yeah that got your attention....

But first... Time for an update. It has been far too long and far too late for me to do this. I find that verbal diarrhea on my facebook page is so much easier, then like putting thoughts into stuff... you know?

Lol okay all excuses aside, things have been going really well. A few weeks back Erik (hubby) linked my site to Reddit and I got some custom orders. It was so awesome! Then more order came in, etc.etc.etc. It was amazing XD.

What was not so amazing was the fact that I bought the entire city of Leiden out of light grey yarn! I tried pre-ordering, but apparently after the month of February grey yarn is not produced anymore (it is a conspiracy!) Sweet lord please tell me why the yarn industry considers 'grey' a seasonal colour? It is not, I worked in fashion, I know this. Where is your constant colour card?!?
Conspiracy!  
Honestly, I have never so many yarn stores in Leiden and I didn't know my greed for yarn till I biked to all of them. For all of you in Leiden, her…

Busy XD

Hey guys!

So since my last post, I have been pretty darn busy. It seems like I found my niche and now I am getting a nice amount of orders, which makes me happy. I am so sorry it has been so long since a post and you guys will have to wait a bit longer actually :P. In the mean time, please appreciate the pic spam below:
