Historian, educator, thriftshopper and mom in Southern California. I upcycled a thrifted Kate Spade purse for myself in January 2009; posted a tutorial for making similar bags on my blog in February; and by April that year I'd opened my Etsy shop. Now I'm at Zibbet. I never, ever expected to be selling art purses, but I have a grand time making them.
