Sher, you NEED to get the Mauve Mums. It's so thick and durable, I just love it.
I would go simple with the coffee cup covers... unless they have very fun personalities.

I GOT MY BAGS TODAY!!!

I'll post pictures tomorrow, after I find my camera cord..

PS. I love them, it's no wonder this thread has grown to 20 pages. The quality is amazing, the fabrics are wonderful and the linings are perfect! I'll definitely be getting another bag from her in the not so distant future

YAY!

Got my Missy bag today! (not-custom...)

It's gorgeous. I can't wait for them to re-open so that I can start with custom orders...




Would you be able to post a pic of the Missy if you get a chance? A pic of you wearing it would be fantastic if you can swing it. I am trying to get a sense of whether I want to order it smaller or not.

I believe CowGirlSissy has the Missy.

And my back hurts just thinking about carrying all that stuff at once. Can I recommend a hockey bag?

Every time I see another post in this thread I think it's someone coming on to say that Katie's taking orders again. The longer I sit here looking at all the pics and options, the bigger the wish list I compile. Eep. Good thing my birthday & Christmas are coming up. I might have to space things out over a few orders.

I wonder how many people are waiting to place orders with her.

Any news yet on when she will be re-opening for custom orders? Her last blog entry said she was 10 days 'behind', but behind what? Behind on promised shipping dates? Or are we supposed to add another 10 business days on to when she thought she would be re-opening? Does anyone know?

OOoh glad to see I'm not the only one waiting for her to open again as well. I'm thinking of Christmas ideas and want to get Kirby's for Step MIL and Step SIL...plus I'm thinking of a Gracie and camera strap for myself...and trying not to think about a Kirby for me too

BLARGH! I am so frusterated! My bags have been delivered and I can't get to them *grumble*

We have a shared mailbox system in our neighborhood and whenever large packages get delivered the postal carrier drops a key in your mailbox so you can get your package from the bigger cubby. Well he put the key in my neighbors mailbox. My neighbor saw the mistake and just dropped the key back in the mail slot (as you're supposed to do) and hoped our mail man would just put it in mine when he realized the error. This was Thursday and nothing . Just my pretty bags sitting by their lonesome in the common mailbox...I've thought about clawing my way through.

WTF?? How did she know they were for you, did she open the bigger box and look? The mailman may not even realize he put the key in the wrong box. The package could be on it's way back to Katie since you didn't accept it.

When I get a key in my mailbox, it just says "Open box 1A" or whatever, you have to open it to see who the box is for. If it wasn't for me or DH, I'd just carry it over to the house it was intended for. I've gotten neighbours mail before and done just that.

Stupid people.

See that's what I did. I got key 1B and gave the package to my neighbor. I asked if he got the other key and he said yes, assumed the package wasn't for him so dropped the key in the box figuring the mailman would realize the error

Maybe I should leave a note....or get Janny to come over with a crowbar.

I'm so sorry Steph, I can't believe your neighbour was so dumb. And given that the mailman hasn't realized it yet, I think the package is halfway back to Edmonton.

Try the note, because the crowbar is a federal offence.

Yay! My status flipped to shipped a few mins ago! (I ordered on the 17th) So since it's 1:30 am, it either means it was shipped earlier or it will be going out in the afternoon Since I'm in Calgary, hopefully it won't take long to get here! Woot!

Here is the email I received from Katie today:
Quote:

Hi Jen,

We went to cut and make your bag this morning so that we could ship it today, only to run into a bit of a problem on our end... we don't have enough Zen Meadow to make a Large Stevie. I'm so sorry, as when you ordered it looked like there was more than enough for all of our orders.

I spent all day today driving around to our local fabric stores to try and find more with no luck, and I was told it has been discontinued (so we can't ask them to order more).

If you want to pick another fabric, we will have your bag made and shipped sometime tomorrow (or Friday morning at the latest). Again, I am so sorry, and had I realized it earlier I would have been in contact much sooner for you to pick a new fabric.

To make it up to you, we would like to offer you a Make-up Bag or a Diaper and Wipes Clutch to go with your bag. Please feel free to choose a second fabric, and we would have enough Zen Meadow for either of these smaller items.




I ordered my bag on Aug. 18, and she was just going to CUT my fabric today to make my order
Poor girl, she must be so crazy far behind, I feel bad for her. At the same time, I'm so sad...I LOVED the zen meadow fabric. Sooo...now I need your help picking a new fabric

This is my bag (large Stevie)


and these are the colours I can't decide between:
digital dots


going green


orange birds


HELLLLPPPP!

And just because I love it, the one that will never be. Zen Meadow

This is such a hard decision! I really wanted to have a 'punch of colour' bag. I like digital dots, but it's so, Me: Brown, neutral, safe. Janny, that fabric was great!

Thanks ladies, for your opinions. Please, if there are any more, I'd love to hear them. I need to email her before I go to bed tonight so she can make it tomorrow.

Hmm, I didn't realize about the prices going up. That sucks. Especially since there are a number of things I'm thinking about getting.

I like the Missy, Kirby, snack bags and possibly a make-up case to match the Missy. Sounds like she's running out of fabrics too. I'll have to see what's going on when she opens for orders again. Hopefully she's getting down to the last of the custom orders she took before closing.

Diva, what did you think of the snack bags? I thought they'd be a great little size for putting a couple of things in that you don't want to get lost in a bigger bag. What did they run you, pricewise?

I'll have to go check the pics out again and write things down. Maybe if I have a list sitting around with the specifics I'd like for each bag my DH might take a hint about birthday presents.

bber - I like the snack bags. I will warn you - they're small. Like, you could put a few small cookies or crackers, nuts, dried fruit, that kinda stuff in them. They're a decent length but not too tall. I got six for $28. Now, if you want something bigger I'm sure the sandwich bags would be great. And the velcro on them is super strong, so nothing's going to fall out.

And adding $5 to some of her prices makes perfect sense to me. It's not a huge jump and she certainly doesn't price herself out of the competition even with that extra $5.

Thanks Diva. Maybe I'll think about the sandwich bags instead. The snack bags do sound pretty cute though.

It's true, $5 really is not much at all, and we're paying for the quality and customization. Also, I really like Katie and appreciate that she has started out so small and will have to make changes to accommodate her growing business. I feel for her having to scramble around for hours on end just after getting back from her holiday. I'll be interested in seeing what she says on her blog, Honeysher.

Patience is a virtue. Hope to see other pics of the latest goodies in the mail!
