New Year- Brings NEW Designs!

I always get the itch to create all new designs with a new year! This year is no exception!
First my latest twist on an old design-
Eco- Friendly Document wallet with a hidden magnetic close! Love it !!! So fun and cool to hear it click but not see it :)
Also great because of the added layer of batting to make it soft on the outside.
Just made 4 and listed them in my shop-- Love this color the most personally--purple punch.

Then I am improving on my purse organizers since one of my customers suggested them. So now they will have an added layer of interfacing so they can stand on their own.

Last but not least, I have wanted to get out of my category of handbags and purses for awhile, but still work with fabric since that is my addiction. So I just finished two lovely fabric storage bin organizers. I hope to have more listed by the end of the week. I know I can always use more household organizing so hopefully buyers will like them too.

buying for trade secrets

Recently I have been experiencing quite a few buyers who are purchasing my items to gain some inside knowledge to my success! I think they are under some sort of delusion that if they can just look at one of my items there were be a hidden secret that exposes it all. How do I know this you may ask? Well, they seem to receive the item, realize that it is a top quality item at a great price but nothing magical about it. So then I receive a message, a very rude and insulting one stating that they want a full refund. They state all sorts of lies about my claims and proceed to demand a refund.
Well, it does make me kinda laugh because if you go back and look at their feedback history and do a little research it all becomes quite clear who and why they are upset. No inside trade secrets were provided at all--lol. So they have wasted their time and money, let alone their own
delusional disappointment. Then what makes matters worse is when I reply in a professional and kind manner, stating that if they return the items to me in excellent, unused condition then I would be more then happy to refund the cost of the items-- WHAT? I did not throw insults back at them, I did not stoup to their level-- how irritating------- oh you gotta love it.

But I am on to each and every one of you and yes, I am watching and possibly waiting too :)

Now on another subject:
Bought some lovely new fabrics that should hit my shop sometime this week!
