Last weekends Etsy New York Holiday Handmade Cavalcade was amazing! I shared a table with my friend Tamara Garvey. We always have a lot of fun vending together. It was the best event I’ve ever sold at. The organizers put so much hard work into getting it all to come together – it was a blast! I am so happy that my bags and pouches will be traveling across the globe to their new homes. Thank you to everyone who came out to the Chelsea Market and supported local handmade makers.

We finally decided to not be selfish and to move the four cowboy and indian prints to the living room over the weekend. You know, so others can see them too! Can’t keep all the good stuff hidden. Billy had these watercolor prints when he was a little kid. His mom sent them to us six years ago and we’ve had them hanging in our bedroom ever since.

It just adds the right amount of color to brighten up the wood/brown tones in our living space. There’s a lot of brown when you have an 8ft farm table and wood floors. It definitely adds height making the space taller and more filled. I don’t know why we haven’t hung anything up in the living room, we do every where else in the apartment.

Oh by the way, my studio work space is in the living room to the right of what you see. And if you’re interested, here’s when I brought up those theater chairs Billy bought two years ago for only $60. The side table and lamp was bought second hand from a friend for $10 each about 5 years ago. That was a long time ago!!

Have a great Wednesday!

monthly goodbye – September

Monthly Goodbye September | jenneng

September! Where did you go?!?! The months are really flying by and I’ve been thinking … I’m going to put a pause on my Monthly Goodbye posts. There are things I need refocusing on, for one, this space! I’ll admit it’s been a mishmash of some personal, some business and some finds. Need to keep within my own model, keeping it simple.

It's time for a change! Let's see what October brings ;)

These monthly goodbye posts are a way for me to review my months by taking note on my accomplishments or failed attempts (so that I can try again) and remembering the good times because sometimes the little things are so easily forgotten.

More exciting news! There’s another shop where you can find my bags! betsy & iya in Portland, OR now have a collection of my bags. The brand actually started off just making jewelry but now, they are so much more. Their brick and mortar shop is filled with items made by independent makers from all over! It truly makes me all warm inside to know my goods are in such great company.
