About Me

LaFayette, Georgia, United States
Hi! I'm Emily, your crafty go to girl. I love all things crafty! I enjoy sewing, scrapbooking, photography, card making, DIY projects, home decor, photo projects, personalized gifts, stamping, jewelry making and just about anything that involves creativity. I run a small Etsy shop called paperpixie crafts. I also have my products in several local shops. I am slowly but surely extending my line of products. My goal is to start filling up my Etsy shop and then eventually open a local boutique. Luckily, I have a wonderful husband who can tolerate my craft obsession, and a great family who is always supportive of my goals. This blog is a sneak peek in to my life and my creative thoughts. I'll be sure to keep you posted with all the cool stuff I see along my crafty journey. Thanks for reading!

My experience with Classic Threads USA
I met Kristina about a year ago via Etsy when she created this lovely bag for me.
 It has been very well used. I love this bag, and have washed it to near threads over months and months of use. Having loved the last bag I received from Kristina so much, I was THRILLED when I found a crisp priority mail package in my mailbox with "Classic Threads USA" wrote on the box. ( = 
I was so excited to open the box I could hardly wait! I was pleased to pull out this adorable "Amanda Market Tote" for review.
Review package received from Kristina at Classic Threads USA
Kristina created the Amanda Market Tote with inspiration from her daughters trip to Italy. The tote is great for a purse, to use as a small carry on, or to use as a shopping tote. The bag is the perfect size and fits nicely over your shoulder or across body. I love that the tote is lined with a dark fabric that won't show make up or pen marks. The bag ties shut with a ribbon to hold items in place but is compartment free on the inside, making it easy to store all your goodies. Netbook users...Don't forget that Kristina welcomes custom orders... and I'm sure she would be happy to add padding to the tote, making it the perfect size to transport your netbook. Also, mother's day is just around the corner... What Mama wouldn't love a snazzy new handmade tote? If you have teens... how about replacing the traditional Easter basket with a pretty purse full of Easter goodies? I just LOVE this bag, and could think of a 100s great uses.The Amanda tote is made with high quality fabrics, has long nicely padded straps, and it absolutely beautiful.
These totes are available in the fabric and colors of your choice. Kristina works wonderful with custom request. Totes can be found in the Classic Threads USA Etsy shop for $45 + S&H.
