Hi friends!

It's been a hot second since I've written a blog post. Keeping up with orders & prepping for the 2018 Unglued Craft Fest took over my February.  But I absolutely have pretty things to share with you now!!

If you've been following my brand since the beginning, you know that I dabbled in clutch making a few years ago. I finally accepted that there are only so many hours in the day when working full-time & pursuing your crafty business dreams.  Fast forward to my 2018 goals: MAKE TIME TO MAKE THINGS YOU LOVE.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE making pillows. I am proudly the pillow girl & my heart is completely happy knowing they will spark a little joy in your home everyday! But the creative side of me is constantly yelling BUY ALL THE FABRIC whenever I see one that speaks to me.  And I'm all about pretty + functional, so bring on the 521handmade Clutch Collection. 

Why am I so obsessed with them? Let me repeat. PRETTY + FUNCTIONAL. I LOVE shoving one in my large purse & being able to grab it before running into a store. Mamas, you understand this joy right? Also, I get it. You could buy a clutch kind of like this at a big box store for probably 1/3 of the price that I am selling them for.  I get that.  But these babes will always be limited edition, small batch items. Most of the time, I only create 1 or 2 of each clutch. Please know that if a print/color combo speaks to you, it was likely meant to be yours. (Sounds cheesy right?) I used to think that until I realized how happy I felt when I pulled my rose gold bag out of my purse for simple boring errands. 

Expect to see neutral basics + florals coming up for spring! And some of you know this little secret, I do A LOT of custom work with brides during wedding season, but it isn't something I've advertised much about. I love creating coordinating handbags for bridesmaids knowing that they can use them again & again after the wedding. So fun!  Be on the lookout for more clutches coming soon.
