Like what you see??
I know my pictures don't do these bags justice, but they are so stinking cute!
I purchased my first Gussy bag back in November when I saw it on Etsy. I ended up giving it to my sister-in-law as a Christmas gift because I had actually purchased it for her. :) I really wanted to keep it though.
The three Gussy bags above are mine. All mine. (You can't hear my giggly excitement, so just imagine it. It's there.)
I first bought this little pink ruffled Gussy zip bag a week or two after my first purchase because it was just too cute and the fabric was one of my favorites. (If you know me well, you know how I get that crazy-eye and my heart starts to beat a little faster when I see some sweet fabric.) I had to have it. :)
That very same week...I WON this black/white checked w/ purple ruffle wallet from a giveaway that Gussy herself was doing on her blog. I NEVER WIN ANYTHING. How lucky did I get that day!
Please go look at Gussy's post HERE to see who else loves a Gussy wallet today. You'll be pleasantly surprised....hint hint family & friends, you might see one of my offspring. ;)
And finally, I had to have this light blue w/ gold checked ruffle laptop bag she was selling. I had been eyeing it ever since she posted it and one day I just snatched it up. My favorite detail is that perfect button. I actually don't even use this for my laptop...I use it for my Bible study materials. A Study Guide and my Bible, along with my highlighters/pens, fit in this bag just perfectly. I love it!!
Does anyone notice what makes these Gussy bags? RUFFLES! And you know I'm not a ruffle-y type of girl, but these are right up my alley.
Now that I've given you the eye candy, let me introduce you to the face behind the Gussy name. I have had the pleasure, during the last few months, to watch the amazing business growth of a most adorable Maggie Whitley (THE Gussy).
She is the sweetest thing. You will have to read her story about her and her husband here. They remind me of a younger version of Chad and myself, in more ways than one, and it's very neat to hear about them.
When I first started buying from her and following her blog, her sales were high. BUT, I then watched her business explode over what seemed like just a few days, during the holidays. It was amazing and I am truly so happy for her. Her post on Everyday Uses with a Gussy product was linked up in the LA Times Daily Dish last week.
Gussy has been kind enough to answer my blogging/business/sewing questions lately and I have greatly appreciated her kindness and willingness to share her thoughts, advice, and knowledge.
She keeps coming up with new designs that are adorable. Take a peek at her new product (I need a checkbook cover like nobody's business!) and you might find something for yourself or a friend. Even ruffled note cards!! Love them!
It would be great fun to meet her someday and let her talk my ear off because I've been told that I can't be beat in that department. ;)
Go check out Gussy's shop, her blog, her Facebook fan page, or even read her fun tweets on Twitter. You will not be disappointed!
(P.S. And just one more time for this proud Mama in case you missed it - another peek at MY sweet Maggie-girl on Gussy/Maggie's post.)
