Getting into the Swing of Things with Swing Station Studio - A BESTeam Feature

Fort Collins, Colorado, voted Money Magazine's 2006 best place to live in America, is the home of Heather and her shop, Swing Station Studio. Being so close to the Rocky Mountains and living in a college town, I can't help but believe that her surroundings help to imbue Heather's creations - a wonderful medley of bright and beautiful purses, clutches, and housewares - with a fresh clean energy that appeals to every age group!

Looking for a smaller zippered pouch to tuck a few small items in or to give as a gift with a gift card tucked inside? I love this Moda Springtime Trees and Leaves Print Small Zippered Pouch. The print is earthy, yet contemporary - and with double stitched stress points you can be sure that this piece is both durable and beautiful!

Maybe you'd like something that's still small but with a shape that lends itself to handling bulkier objects like a camera or an ipod and snacks. You can even store an emergency fashion/personal care kit (panty hose, travel size hairspray, deodorant, sewing kit) and keep it fashionably secure in a larger bag or your desk drawer. How handy is that? My choice in this size and style is the Pink and Brown Medallion Print Mini Box Purse. The awesome geometric print cover looks great with the matching polka dot lining making this decidedly feminine and fun too!

You can see from this product photo that this is no small bag! Heather's Weekender Travel Duffel Bag is "Made to Order" in your choice of fabrics, and like the rest of her wonderful work, is constructed with the utmost attention to detail, using double-stitched stress points, and quality workmanship in every step along the way! With its roomy inner compartment and a great zippered compartment on the end and a open top compartment on the side, this bag would be great for that overnight or weekend trip, a trek to the beach, or any other excursion where you want the convenience and security of a zippered bag. You can even use mini luggage locks with this design to keep your items extra secure.

There's so many other great handsewn items in Heather's shop, and she's even thrown in a few vintage items for a change of pace, so you never know what treasures you might find there! I hope you'll take the opportunity to visit SwingStationStudio as well as following Heather on:

Due to a scheduling issue, I will be rescheduling my chainmaille feature but I hope you'll stop by tomorrow when I post some responses to questions I've received from you as well as some facebook friends. I still have room for one more question, so if there's anything you'd like to know about in the world of crafting and owning a home based craft business, or Etsy, or blogging, or social media, send it on over and I'll do my best to get you an educated answer!

Till tomorrow - be happy, healthy, and just enjoy your day!

Love the mini box purse. I'm thinking that would be a great Christmas gift for one of my girls.

Nice feature!
