Crossbody bags

Posted by Mary McCulloch on

Crossbody bags are such a practical bag for many reasons.  They are small, but functional and can hold all your most important items.  Wallets, sunglasses, phone, keys, and small cosmetics fit perfectly.  This bag is ideal for traveling and is safe with the cross shoulder strap, which is adjustable.  Going for a walk and you don't have pockets?  Use the crossbody bag for your phone, keys, and wallet.  The bag is 100% handmade, some with water resistant material.  If you are looking for a unique, versatile and practical bag, this is the bag.

Cape Cod Nautical Canvas Tote Bags & Clutches

Posted by Mary McCulloch on

I have decided to try my hand at stenciling canvas bags.  I used stencils years ago, but for my walls in my house!  Working on canvas fabric is pretty much the same.  There are some really delightful stencils you can use for all kinds of projects.   Using stencils is easy.  Depending upon which stencil it is, you just need to secure it onto your fabric, dab some paint on your stencil brush and paint the stencil in a circular motion, for the best results.  You need to wipe most of the paint off of the brush first.  You can...

Posted by Mary McCulloch on

Trying to stay connected to people through social media is one of the best forms of "word of mouth" advertising there is.  And did I mention it's free?  There are so many platforms out there to choose from, but I'm going to talk about the largest and most popular ones.   The best social media platform out there is Facebook.  You already have your "friends" together in one place. So when you post something about your business, whether it's text, an image or a video, everyone gets to see it in your circle.  And possibly all of your friends' friends...
