Almost back in action =)

Life hasn’t slowed down quite yet and it’s about to get a little crazier! I’m back in California and have found a car, job and a am working on moving into a new place!

With all the crazyness I left half of my sewing machine and sewing supplies on the east coast and they just arrived in the mail so I can actually set up shop once again and get to work! I have a few orders that I must complete soon and adjustments need to be made with KP’s Magic Messenger…still!

Hopefully I find a place with some sewing space soon and can indulge you all with beautiful pictures again soon =) I probably miss them as much as you do =)

Where I’ve Been Hiding!

Oh man! Lord knows I never meant to be away from punKyj for this long!
.
So since my last post in August here’s what I’ve been doing…in no particular order
Notice that there are no photos of my amazing creations, or sob stories about my sewing mishaps.  It’s because I have barely touched my punKyj life since I finished KP’s Magic Messenger.  And because I’ve created another disaster in the meantime without sewing!
.
When I went to the WWE wrestling match I brought my Sanctify bag with me (as I always do) and dropped it into some nasty wrestling juice under my seat.  It was sopping wet!  So I went home with the intention of washing it on gentle, hang drying it, or drying it on delicate.  Since I’ve only wash tested one other of my bags.
.
Unfortunately it was washed in the same load as a super heavy RUG!  And thrown into the drying on high, not once but TWICE, with the huge and heavy rug!
.
The good news is that my bag stayed strong and in one piece.  The bad news is that the color is completely faded and it’s semi mis-shapen  and some of the interfacing on the inside of the bag clumped together, so it feels like there are little balls inside of the flap!  *sigh*  At least I know my bags are sturdy…
.
Anyway, I’ve been desperately dreaming about getting back into the groove and have even started my Auntie Annie’s new purse (which is going to be pretty sweet) but haven’t continued to work on it, because not only do I need more supplies, but I’ve been working for 11 days straight and have been moving all over the east coast for the past 3 weeks =/
.
So look forward to some new photos come the end of September and I’ll keep doing faulty experiments on my
bag so that I can make yours better! =)

*****Each product is handmade from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.
