La Cartera – Spanish for “The Purse or portfolio” highlights my creative journey of blogging, creating  unique purse designs,  free sewing tutorials, & a creative lifestyle. So  if you’re a “Handmade Handbag Junkies” Check out my latest creations. And let’s connect!

I’m a frugal girl who enjoys upcycling materials , hand painting fabrics, sewing, crochet, and I’m thrilled when a project involves Modge Podge or a Hot glue gun!

Following through on my 2013, New Years resolution to be more creative; it’s the side of me that no one got a chance to see in the past.  I’ve had so much fun during the past few years with craft fairs, sharing a boutique shop, meeting artist, making new friends, and just creating!  Now that I’m a Grandmother, I’ll be adding children designs to the mix too! Please join me in my next adventure as I continue to work on my niche! Expect to see my creations, Hit or Miss designs , Tutorials ,  Sewing Tips, Product Reviews, Children designs, and PDF patterns coming soon!

        I was the same in the beginning of my adventures in the kitchen. Oh boy I can tell you some stories of some food I messed up!!
        remember one creation doesn’t work..don’t give up. Try again!! 🙂
