Here is my view from our back porch it is my Happy Place :) 
 There is nothing better than sharing your Happy Place with someone or thing that you love also.


My Blue Fairy Bunkie joins me on the porch every chance I get.  She carries all of the necessary goodies for porch life.
Lol, here is everything but bug spray, it's seasonal, 2 Note books, post it's, 2 pair of reading glasses, you never know when you might need to see twice as much :),  my current read, sun glasses, soda and cheese stick, cup with Ikea straw, my pruners- you never know when you must jump up and go trim a bush with 1 wonky stem sticking up and a business card- it's a multi purpose tool.  
I love my Bunkie, she makes my Happy Place complete.💕

My dearest friends and daughters are sharing their Bunkie Love too!  Please check them out!




Denise   You are Here

                   Thank you so much for visiting my back porch, you are always welcome!

Where has the time gone?

It's November 2016!

Dear Readers,
Please forgive me, it's been 2 years since my last post!

It's been an exciting time here in Bunkieland. Since our last visit we have personally created literally 100's of Bunkie Bags for happy stampers all over the world!  I've met many fabulous crafters and seen their work and am amazed that they have adopted Miss Bunkie Bag with such love.  In the picture above is the complete collection that Chris Dayton had us custom make in her favorite colors.

This year Miss Bunkie was chosen to be an inspiration for a So Suzy Stamps Christmas card, and I have it on good authority it won't be the last! Watch 2017 for more Miss Bunkie Bag and So Suzy Stamps collaborations. Join us on Instagram, Facebook and So Suzy Stamps to see what we are up to in the coming year!

Original Misti Zip Bag in Misti Pink with Butterfly Zipper Pull.  Mini Misti Zip Pouch also comes in the Misti Pink!  These 2 bags are available exclusively at sosuzystamps.com.

My Sweet Petunia introduced the MISTI ,  Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented, and it has changed the stamping world!  I love this product and wanted to protect her from the bumps of crafting.  Suzy of So Suzy Stamps and I visited with our friend, Iliana Myska of My Sweet Petunia, to make sure these bags, colors and designs were worthy of her MISTI  product line. We got a thumbs up and the Misti Zip Bag for the original ™   was created.  Not long after, the cutest Mini Misti Zip Pouch came along to care for it's counterpart, Mini  MISTI ™ .  

The Memory MISTI ™     was introduced in early 2016 and she had to have her own bag too!  A beautiful, well built tote, was designed just for her and introduced in August 2016.  The Memory Misti Tote is available only at simplycharmingeverday (at) gmail (dot) com

In February the 2017 SCE Bag Collection, which includes the Bunkie Bag, Misti Zip Bag, Mini Misti Zip Pouch and Memory Misti Tote will debut it's new fabrics and design! But more of that in January!


From our families to yours,
Happy Thanksgiving!
We love it when you visit us, please come again and bring a friend!

Christmas Bunkies


Our friends at So Suzy Stamps have requested Christmas Bunkies, your wish is our delight!


We will have Christmas Bunkies available the last week of November and the first week of December.  Quantities will be limited.  This year we will be offering a new design as well as our beloved Craft Bunkie.  Our Buttoned Up Bunkie will be the same size,  (8" long x 7" high x 4"deep, strap drop is 6.5 ") as the Craft Bunkie but will have a flap and button closure.

These versatile little bags are wonderful for small knitting & crochet projects, hand sewing, embroidery and  rubber stamp supplies for classes, as well as project keepers.  I have one that I use for my travel sewing supplies, it's amazing how much these little bags can tote! 

Thanks for visiting, Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!
Denise and friends at Simply Charming Everyday

Thank you So Suzy Stamps


As you can tell it has been quite a few years since our last blog post.  Life has been exciting and very busy here in Bunkieland.  Who knew that when she was created ( Bunkie is a she, because she does all & then some and makes it looks incredibly easy) that we would have weddings, grandbabies and new homes, graduations and all of the other things that life throws at us, so we let our Bunkie Blog take a long winter's nap.
  
 Singer did survive her breakdown with a little TLC from the incredible  Mulqueen in Mesa Arizona. Life is good. 

Miss Bunkie, or should it be Miss Bag?  I like Bunkie best.  Miss Bunkie has been busy helping Tippy aka Suzanne of  So Suzy Stamps  and her Card Making Divas tote their goodies to and from classes and Retreats for the past few years.  There have been Cupcake Bunkies, Girls on the Go Bunkies and Christmas in July Bunkies are coming up in July 2015! 


Simply Charming Everyday would like to thank Suzanne of Greetings From Suzanne and So Suzy Stamps for her love of Bunkie bags,and for sharing them with her Card Making Divas everywhere.

Our Bunkie bags are available at www.sosuzystamps.com.

Thanks for visiting us today, please come back again.

Love Bunkie #9

Hearts…Flowers…Candy, what’s not to love about Valentines Day? I remember when my girls were younger how much fun they had getting ready for their Valentines Day party at school, making the heart covered “mail boxes”, shopping for valentine cards and picking out the best ones for their special friends and of course a big one for the teacher. Cupcakes were made, little red and sliver kisses were attached to the envelopes of their valentine cards and then when the party was over, the fun they had reading the valentines that they received from their friends. It was all great fun; it made them feel special and loved. That is what I truly love about Valentines Day…it’s an opportunity to let others know how much you care and how special they are to you.

Now that my girls are in high school, valentine parties are a thing of the past. Still I love to make the day special for them and usually bake cupcakes topped with pink frosting and conversation hearts and get them a small gift of some sort. This year I have decided on picking up some of their favorite eye shadow, lip gloss, and of course the traditional “red and white xxoo socks”. Denise came up with a wonderful little Bunkie Bag which she christened “Love Bunkie #9”. Love Bunkie #9 is perfect to hold the gifts that I am picking up for them AND they will be able to use the bag as a little purse, or to carry their CD’s, their DVD’s, their IPod…and the list goes on and on and on! What a Simply Charming idea!

Wishing you all a Simply Charming Valentines Day!


My goodness How times Have Changed! this post was sitting waiting to be posted from 2009.  Enjoy!

Happy New Year!


Well 2008 is over, gone, never to return. Do you wonder how it came and went so quickly? I know I do! My best friend Denise and I have been saying for over 30 years now; “Things will slow down after Christmas.” The problem is, we did not specify which Christmas and things seem to be moving faster than ever! I don’t know about you, but I have truly had enough of the fast-paced lifestyle. It occurred to me the other day when I was looking at Danette’s “City to Farm Chick” web site how much I wanted, and more importantly needed, to just slow down and enjoy life. As I looked at the pictures she had posted of the farm and read about the changes in her life, I actually felt myself begin to relax…what a concept! Maybe it’s time to get back to the basics and look at what is really important, such as health, family, and friends. Who knows, maybe this is the year that we will finally find our “after Christmas” time. After all we only have one life, so why shouldn’t it be Simply Charming Everyday.

It’s a new year and a new beginning for us at Simply Charming Everyday, LLC. We have been gathering ideas, trying out new Bunkie Bag patterns, setting up our LLC, launching our Bunkie Blog, and preparing our Simply Charming Everyday, LLC web site, which will be coming soon. We are so excited to see what 2009 has in store for all of us.

Happy New Year everyone!
