Hi! My name is Lisa Lam and I can't stop making bags! Thanks for stopping by :)
Interests: ...where do I begin! sewing bags (now there's a surprise), and cooking anything as long as it doesn't contain offal. When my brain is available it reads, photography, running my business, walks with Beans (my dog), and life with my husband (who makes me laugh every day). I love comedy shows, a good boogie with my friends. other loves...films, Where? France, Thailand, Brighton, Spain and Amsterdam.
