Cammie's Handmade Soaps
All natural, handmade designer soap bars with great designs and scents. Also, exfoliating sugar scrubs and wonderfully scented body and linen sprays. Don't miss Shampooch, my all natural dog flea shampoo bar, and SCRAM!, my all natural insect repellent.
I work with a medley of mediums to make jewelry. I create a diverse range of body art to give the client a variety of opportunities to experience the beauty and satisfaction that can come from body ornamentation. My favorite medium to use is polymer clay. It allows me to make dramatic statement pieces that are wearable art. Many of these pieces incorporate beads that I have also handcrafted. These are my favorite pieces of jewelry to create. These pieces require a good deal of confidence to wear by the owner because they will wear you if you don't wear it like you "own it". These pieces have attitude! I also make pieces that are more conservative and whisper confidence.

Colorfly Studio Art by Jennifer DeDonato
I love paper! My technique is all about paper! I enjoy the simple hands-on techniques that is considered “old school” today and simply consists of paper, scissors and adhesive (yep, that’s pretty much it). I have a Ooh La La collection of paper that inspires me and cutting freehand is my thing. I also like vintage matchbooks and antique print letters. I use old discarded matchbooks and give them a second life. All my matchbook designs are created with the same “technical” way my paper designs are…you guessed it, scissors and adhesive.

My signature style with Enchanted Photodesign offers a luminous, ethereal view of a widely diverse array of subjects, from personal portraits to hard-edged urban views, from wildflowers to vivid graffiti.

My blog 832-434-6332
b.bags was born August of 2008 when I, Lora Bunge, decided that I wanted to try my hand at sewing some simple bags out of upcycled and repurposed materials on my "new to me" hand-me-down 1970's Kenmore sewing machine. One thing led to another, and here we are today! All of my handbags are made out of upcycled clothes, fabrics, buttons, belts, bracelets, ties, you name it. I LOVE the concept of reusing materials and giving new life to something that may have otherwise ended up in the dump. And, of course, every b.bag is designed and handmade by yours truly!
