My name is Christine and I am addicted to bag making!
Interests: Now that is a good question! Sewing (surprise surprise!), mainly bags and more bags however I do like making an occasional collector teddy bear (OK so I once did that full time BUT the bags took over! LOL) I also love cats and dogs and all sorts of wonderful critters. COOKING and housework are NOT my favourite pass times however and I would MUCH rather be making a bag! I also enjoy spending time with my wonderful children.....oh and sometimes even hubby too! I like to laugh so I love to watch a good comedy movie and I like to watch some drama, scary and love stories too! Oh what the heck....I like a lot of things!
