Here is what Bambuca told us about herself~
I am From Scandinavia, followed my heart and now live in Texas.
I started to sew purses when I noticed how most times I came back home I had a new purse, and how the purse still wasn't THE one. I realized how it would make more sense if I made my own purse. It would be exactly what I wanted, and when it was hand-made it would have even more meaning and love in it.
Sewing my purses is like perfect therapy for me, it is my break from taking care of my baby, keeping the house up, my alone moment. I love it, I can totally sink in to my thoughts, clear up my mind and forget the rest of the world for a moment. When I'm finished with the project, I have something to be proud of and I'm happy to go on with the everyday chores.
Thanks for my husbands awesome support I was encouraged enough to share my passion with purses and start my shop Bambuca on Etsy last May. I do many custom-made orders and sell them through the facebook page as well as in Etsy among the already listed items. I love the challenge of a custom-order.
Etsy is a nice community and I've gotten tons of good feedback and felt so supported by other Etsians. My shop's facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/bambuca.atx
Thank you Bambuca for taking time out of your busy life to share your story with us! Best of luck to you!
