Busy, Busy, Busy

Wow what a crazy and hectic week! Living outside of Cleveland typically means plenty of snow and that is exactly what we got this week...plenty of snow! And it's still coming down. But that's ok I am inside my studio sewing away. I have created a new handbag style this week and as soon as I run out to grab more batteries I will take a pic and post it.

I found some great people on Etsy this week as well. Desperately was in need of new labels for my bags and online vendors seem to take forever printing them. But I did find two wonderful ladies on Etsy who have come to my rescue. One is designing embroidered labels for my shop samples and the other is printing up some for my line items. Take a look at their shops at and

Back to sewing and shoveling!

New Fabric

Ok so I should have been at home working, but I just got back from fabric shopping. A local fabric shop is going out of business and I could not resist. Bought some beautiful floral fabrics that are perfect for spring and summer. Will post some pics when I create something from one of the fabrics.

Hi there. I'm Jackie and I created this blog to share with you my handbag designs. I am the owner of Blue Orchid Handbags...check out my site at Blue Orchid Handbags.

I am a graphic designer by trade but cannot and will not ignore the fact that I enjoy sewing much more than anything else. I have my own graphic design studio and while during the day I help small business owners market themselves and drive their businesses forward, during the evenings I sew. If you are interested in my design work you can check out my portfolio here.

Back to sewing! I am working very hard on finishing up a line of handbags which will be for sale on my site along at Etsy. I hope you stop back often:)
