This Sunday, I've decided to highlight my fellow Carried Away Team Mate, Cinnamon of Poise.cc. (Isn't that an awesome name? It's her real name, too!) Cinnamon has a restrained sense of style with hip, yet classic patterns and everyday usability at the forefront. I especially like her messenger bag with the circles. One of these days, I swear I'll learn to make these.

A bit about Cinnamon in her own words:

Cinnamon Cooper taught herself to sew on her Holly Hobby sewing machine when she was a wee lass. She made the cutest outfits for her cats and dolls. When she got older it took a while for her skills to catch up with her style. Eventually she realized that sewing handbags and totes was great fun because they didn't have to fit her hips or her waist. About the same time, she got huge urges to help save the world and began making and donating bags to raise money for non-profit organizations. The ego boosts she received from these sales, combined with an ever-increasing fabric stash, made her swallow her fear and create www.Poise.cc — a small handbag empire where politics are fashionable and where handbags are designed to suit your purse-onality.

Cinnamon's shop name comes from the N'Awlins pronunciation of "purse."

You can visit Cinnamon at her website, her photo gallery, her etsy shop or her blog. She also has a hidden talent for tamale making.

I'm painfully behind in my business web work. But thank you so much for profiling me. I'll be returning the favor soon. :)
