June 19th



I know things have been a little more roller coaster around here lately than normal. I apologize for the ups and the downs. I look back at the last few weeks and the posts seem to be in one of two categories: here is how to be happy, and here is how I am not.


Thank you bag for Meg

So, I figure I’ll distract you with a few more bamboo handled handbags while I wade through the latest dip. I need some time away from the blog. I’ll be back when things are a bit more even-keel. In the meantime, thank you.

  2. Mwwwah!
    Have a good weekend. Hope that even-keel comes soon.

  3. You are a bamboo-handle-purse-making-machine (That cutesie spring top pink/green bag is especially cute! Fabulous!) Enjoy your space, and we’ll be here when you come back. Wish you a happy weekend.

  4. Another super cute bag Kelli! I hope you find some inner peace soon, xoxoxox. Will be here waiting when you return.

  5. Take all the time you need but I will miss you.

  6. Oooh, I love the black bag.
    I hope things look up soon – you don’t have to apologize for your words though – I think things around here are more upbeat than you might think. But good or bad I enjoy your perspective and writing regardless.

  7. Those cute bamboo handled bags should cheer anybody up! Hang in there, blogging friend. 🙂

  8. What gorgeous bags! You are really on a roll with them, aren’t you? Can I ask where you had your personalized labels made?

    Sometimes life has a way of knocking the wind out of you, doesn’t it? Thank you for being honest about it, and not only sharing the sunshiny parts with us.

    Your bags are lovely! You don’t need to apologize for the ups & downs…life is like that & as much as we would like, we can’t stay on the mountain tops. Be gentle with yourself and take care.

  11. Unplug, unwind, relax, and know you are cared for and thought of!!

    The roller coaster ride may continue but you will have the strength to hang on tight and make it off the coaster with a smile on your face, and with an amazingly cute bamboo handled bag on your arm! 🙂

  12. Kelli, I hope things even out for you soon. Sometimes just knowing there are a few things you don’t absolutely *have* to do provide a little relief and peace.

  13. That’s life Kelli, with its ups and its downs, we have just to accept it with the most positive attitude we can. Be back soon honey, please.
    About the bags, you did a great job with them, my fav is the black one.

  14. Your bags look wonderful. You’re really creating some great looks with these. There’s something about bamboo that transcends all economic levels but makes the overall look so polished. Great job, Kelli!

  15. Hang in there Kelli. Those bags are fantastic. I love reading your blog. From your blog, I can tell you’re a very kind and thoughtful person. Take care and come back soon!

  16. Love the bags! Hope you are feeling better soon.

  17. Take good care of yourself. Big hug!

  18. More wonderful summer bags. You could sell these! Take good care dear friend. Many arms surround you.

  19. Amazing bags, as always…just too cute. Take care of yourself and I hope you find the even-keel soon.

  20. Take your time… you’ll find your footing again soon enough. Wishing you peace!

    You’re too hard on yourself! You don’t want to be one of those Stepford wife-like bloggers, do you? Who lives in a perfect world where work/sewing/life/relationships are all perfect all the time? No way!

  25. Kelli,

    “Bags are adorable.

    To everything, turn, turn, turn.

    There is a season, turn, turn, turn.

    And a time for every purpose under heaven.”

    Keep on breathing and this too shall pass. I’ll be sending good karma your way.


  26. I hear ya big time, girl. Take all the time you need. We will be here when you get back.
