a shop update, new bag style, and a little announcement.

okay so i just updated my shop with 11 new bags! there are a bunch of larger items, but also a few smaller hip pouches. there are also a bunch of sale items still in the shop.. so go take a look!

i've come up with a new unisex bag style that i am pretty crazy about. it's a good-sized weekend bag! there's a nice zip top, long leather handle, and it rests comfortably at the hip. you can be sure that there's many more of these to come!

on to the most important part of this update - starting this sunday july 19th my shop will be closed for about 4-6 weeks. i work 2 other jobs ontop of doing forestbound stuff and i've finally decided to take a little break for myself. i'll still be working on custom orders (the ones i currently have.. not yet taking new orders) and doing some occasional sewing, but for the most part i need to just enjoy the summer and not get stressed out about taking a day off! also, my best friend is moving across the country in a little over a month so i need to spend as much time with her as possible.

there will be a huge shop re-opening update and i'll definitely be posting about it. i'll still keep updating my blog and my flickr, so i won't totally disappear from internet land! i just need a little break from working 7 days a week. especially now that it's nice outside!
