Thoughts, quirky insights and experiences in my meandering life.

Creations for Christmas

Well, I certainly don’t have marketing under my belt as it just occurred to me to day that I should be letting the world know that there are still a few pieces available of the Sauble Collection.

It has been a year of thinking things through in terms of my desire to create items and then how to put them out into the world. Creating and not dispersing would fill my home very quickly. The website and Sauble collection were a good beginning, but I am realizing I do not want to be limited to one medium. I have bought leather and have made some bags, which did not make it to the website, so I have to find a way to streamline all this. I think if I was a computer native it would be easier, but no, I have to plod my way through figuring it out. But I am having fun creating, which is the important thing, to me anyway. I really like my tag line, a Meandering Maker. Meandering all over the place, literally and creatively.

Here is the last bag available. Hand stitched, veg tan leather which I dyed myself. Very organic, not at all the style I made in Florence.

It is based on a bus or train conductors ticket bag and has three sections inside. I am offering it at $90.00 as a prototype. Can be cross body or a shoulder bag. The one I made myself two years ago is now soft and supple and I got a compliment on it just today!

I hope everyone has a great holiday season however you celebrate it, and what better way to end than a picture of Tucker and Piper at play.

All the very best in 2022


  1. Hey Maggie,
    not sure if you remember me – we met in the County, you visiting Caroline and Arlene (you and I went canoeing a million years). Love all your creations but the bag speaks to me especially – still available and if so, how can I go about purchasing?

      Hi Barb,
      Did we go canoeing with Beth Mairs and Wild Women Expeditions?
      The bag is still available. You can send an e transfer to made@madebymann, $90 plus $5.95 shipping and I will get it sent out to you. I will need your address. You can send it directly to the same email address. So glad to know it is being re-homed.

        yes,yes,yes! Over the moon happy and yes we did ‘do’ the Beth Mairs trip, which I fondly remember and no longer have stamina for such foolishness, haha.
        I’ll do the e-transfer tonight with address, but just in case here it is:

        made@madebymann email did not want to go through – is there another one for my e-transfer,

          Hi Barb,
          I hope the bag arrived safely, and I hope it was what you expected. Feedback please.

          • Hey Maggie,
            Received my beautiful bag in plenty of time before christmas – LOVE it – thank you!
            Will try and send you a photo which of course doesn’t do it justice,

  2. Hi Maggie:

    Love watching you meander. All the best, Susan

    Hi Maggie. I was just reviewing your site yesterday and thought I should get in touch. Time flies and I am not good at communicating.
    So cute to see Tucker and his friend playing in the snow.
    Your purse is lovely but a little small for my needs but it looks like it has a home now.
    Take care and all the best for Christmas and the New Year.
