obvious decisions, studio pics & a leather giveaway

Remember this post?  Well. After I took in all of your sage (and extremely appreciated) advise, I decided that it was time to quit whining and pull on my big girl panties. It's now obvious that I've decided to continue making leather bags - at least through this Christmas.

After that?  I'm not so sure but I'm thinking there may be a change. Lots of options are in my mind.  Options which are doable while living in two different places at once.  So we'll see.  I'm excited.  And that's all I've got to say about that. 


Studio shots.  Lots of new leather goodies in the works.  And as a result...




I'm amassing quite the pile of swaggy leather scraps.  So.  If you think you could use them in your playful creative endeavors, I'd love to pass on a few lovely bundles.  They're all scraps - but beautiful scraps they are in a variety of textures and colors.  I'll send three people small (13 oz) bundles - which is surprisingly more than you'd think!  Just leave a comment below and I'll randomly pick a few.  NOTE: Sorry - this is only open to readers right here in the good ole' US of A.  

I'll use to select the recipients on Friday morning and contact you.
Good luck!


  1. I'm glad you're going to keep up the bags, at least for now. I think you should do what you WANT to do. Maybe run limited editions of your sketches. Have 25 made up and once they're gone, they're gone! Sewing will always be there, you'll never leave it, it means to much to you, trust me, some things are just in your blood.

  2. Glad to hear that you'll be sewing some more and cant wait to see those lovely unique creations.
    Count me in for the leather scraps.

  3. Your bags are so beautiful, I'm glad you are maki
    G some more for the world to enjoy! Sure would love to play with the scraps :-)

  4. Your bags and drawings/watercolors are gorgeous. I hope you're able to fit both into your life in a way that makes sense for your hectic schedule.

    Thanks so much for the chance to win the leather clippings. I'd love to incorporate them into some of my copper jewelry.

  5. I would love to have those leather scraps. I am actually working in a new line of leather jewelry. I really could use these and since I am in GA, I could pick up anytime good for you :)
    Thank you very much!

  6. I am glad you are going to keep making bags for a while at least. You are talented in so many ways and I can only imagine how hard it is going between 2 places. Just continue to create! I would love to win one of your leather scrap give aways. Thank you for the chance.

  7. I just love everything you post...whether bags or your watercolors. Each time I see your post, I get inspired!

  8. So glad to hear you'll still be making bags. Still looking for "the one" that I'll actually get before someone else does!
    Would love some scraps. Wonderful of you to do this :)

  9. oh-hoh-hoh-hoh-hoh!
    I can't believe you consider that a pile of scraps. No, that's some good stuff there.
    When I was a kid, back in the 70's, my sister and I would rummage through the Post Office dumpster and come out with scads of sample cards with 2" x 2" fabric swatches attached. We delighted in how much possibility those little bits of fabric held.
    The possibility of getting my hands on 13 ounces of those fat scraps you've got there is causing my mind race.
    Oh, the excitement!

  10. I have two ideas for the leather scraps - jewelry, of course, would be one, but I also like to make dollhouse miniatures, and I am thinking it would be fun to make leather shoes for the dolls or something along those lines! Thanks for the giveaway and glad to hear you are going to continue making bags!

  11. I love following your blog, & your bags are wonderful. I would love to have the scraps to use in some jewelry designs! Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  12. I'm running low on scraps,(I gave my nieces some I shouldn't have). But thank you anyhow. Love your bags!

  13. Love a chance at those leather scraps. And so glad to see you still making bags, I really love admiring your work, actually I really love following your blog you are so inspiring. It's always so nice to see your positive sketches.

    Thank you,

  14. Oh, what yummy scraps you have my dear! ;) (sorry...bad Holly, bad) I've got so many wonderful ideas for these scraps. So many... Thanks for offering them!


I love reading each one of your comments. Thanks for your visit and have a wonderful day.
