New and Improved!

As a Handmade Artist sometimes our work area can get out of control, especially when we are busy and in the creative mode.  I am someone that just cannot work in chaos, and my work area had become chaos! So I have spend the last two days, sorting, organizing, and tossing! Out with the old and in with the new!  I am super excited about my new area and wanted to share with everyone!

My wonderful husband put up Pegboard for me, I love having all my tools organized! He also hung a Wooden Bags By Hags sign it makes me feel so official!

If you sew you NEED one of these, it is so awesome to have your thread organized and at the tips of your fingers!

The cutting table and my sewing desk.  (My machine will be uncovered and hard at work this afternoon!)
My husband is going to put up 2 shelves for me as well.

Now that everything is clean and organized it is time to go to work!
How do you stay organized?  I would love to hear your tips!

Handmade and Sassy!

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week!  
This week starts something new here on my blog, it is our Handmade Shop of the Week.  Each week I will be featuring one of the wonderful shops from the Handmade Circle Team.

The first shop of the week is Sassygirlheadbands.  Take a look at some of her great items!

Lets learn a little about Donna the owner behind Sassygirlheadbands: 

Dental Hygienist by day, crafter by night. I am one busy mom who loves to create crafty things. My girls and I love to give people handmade gifts which is how these headbands, keyfobs and soon lanyards was born. My girls hate headbands that have any spikes, or plastic parts that dig into their heads. Finding hair accessories became a problem. When I made these headbands, my girls were finally not fighting me about wearing them. I decided to try them for my running routine and quickly fell in love! 

The keyfobs came about because we were looking for an inexpensive but unique gift for my daughters teachers. Everyone loved them and soon I was getting many orders for them. I love mine because it allows me to use my hands and not have to put my keys back in my purse. 

Head over and see all her great items:  you can also find her on Facebook at:  Stop over and tell her hello, she would love to see you! 

If you would like the opportunity to be our next Handmade Shop of the Week, join our team, we would love to have you!
