Paula's Purses Plus (The shopping cart will be up again as I redo my inventory.)
Like most women that crochet, their grandmothers taught them how to. I was taught when I was around ten years old. Grandma, Margaret Tidemann, was a skilled crafter. She donated much of her crafts to the Sioux Indian Reservation. In the winter time she would load up essentials she collected through the year and head to the Reservation. Hats, scarves, mittens and blankets for everyone. Appliances etc.
Sewing class at Washington High School, as a teenager had me involved in projects. In raising my two children & marriage of 18 years it got away from me. I did make a multi-blue king size afghan for the bed in 1984 and I still have it. I also made my children blankets.
It wasn't until age 50, ten years into my second marriage, that I took it up again as a hobby. Starting with Hobo Bags. They caught the attention of friends and they asked me to make them. I made around 100 of them.
I started crocheting Christmas presents, Shower gifts. I made a HUGE U.S. Flag for a raffle. A veteran that needed financial assistance for medical fees. We collected $2,000 a very satisfying and humbling moment.
I am 62 years old now, two grown children, three grandchildren and one great grandchild. A fabulous husband of 23 years and my dog Lily and his cat, Jynx.

I have received many different items over the years but my favorite would have to be a beautiful shawl. Paula puts a ton of love into each of the pieces she does & she can make anything that you could possibly imagine. I have gotten so many things including hats/scarfs, pillows, hobo purses, a teddy bear & a raccoon for my grandbabies. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!
Paula puts love and quality into everything she creates. I've been at the receiving end of many items including a beautiful black/gray/white buffalo plaid lapghan, and an amazing shawl in a vibrant pink mixture. She can do it all!!
I have purchased many items from Paula and have never been disappointed. Her work truly reflects what a true artisan she is, every piece beautiful and made with love for her craft.
Paula gifted me a wonderful purse that she made. The purse had plenty of room for everything I carry. Paula puts a lot of heart into everything she makes.
I'm really glad your here. It's been awhile since updating the website. I'm excited to tell you ALL of the treasures on this website are immediately available for sale.
In doing inventory this month I have put aside a bundle of items to sell together. Check back in this Spring for more information.
For health reasons I have remained in my home since March 8, 2020. I greet friends and family outside on the back deck. Everyone wears mask and practices social distancing. Safety First!
Every year there is a "Hot Ticket" item for Christmas. Thousands of them appear in groups on Face Book. One year it was monkey hats. Another year it was Princess Elsa hats, hair and all. I am looking forward to seeing what the ladies of all the fantastic groups I belong to choose this year.
What would you like to see me make? Email me your suggestions. I get really creative ideas from my clients. Like the Jerry Garcia doll.
I would love it if you would send me a photo of you with your PPP Purchase. It really brings me joy. With your permissions I will add your photo to the Happy Customers Page. Check it out! Please send your photos to My PHOTO Submission
