"Dear Lisa and the U-Handbag team,

I just wanted to let you know that the strange sound you heard on Saturday -- you know, the funny yelling-like noise which seemed to come from afar - was actually me. You see, the postman delivered your LOVELY package of handbag goodness (and gummy bears!!!! YUMS!!!) and I just had to shout for joy :-))

THANK YOU!! I LOVE your kits and wish that I could just stay home and play instead of earning my keep at the office. Hahahahhahahah!

Over the weekend, I sewed up the Simply Stylish handbag and oh goodness, it came together so quickly and easily. I'm so glad I ordered more straps because your Simply Stylish bag is absolutely cute AND easy to make. If I didn't have my two-year-old trying to "help," I'm pretty sure the bag would've been completed in two hours. In fact, the bit I spent the most time on was sewing on the straps!

The instructions are clear and now that I've made one, I can see how much scope there is for playing with the design. I have all sorts of ideas now and am dying to try them out.

Some lucky people are going to get gorgeous handbags as Christmas gifts .... or maybe I'll gift them to myself. Hahahhahahah!

I also have to comment on the quality of the handbag bits and bobs. For example, the magnetic clasp is sturdy and pretty posh-looking, unlike some of the cheapie ones you tend to see in most craft shops. Oh and your leather straps are DIVINE.

So thanks once again. I know I'm going to be ordering from you again very soon. Happily yours"
