Etsy shop, all made by hand by me! Metal and rivets are fun and make me feel all happy and bubbly on the inside:)
I am off to help Grampy move out of his house and hopefully back to the lab this evening for a little more creative escape. Happy Sunday Everyone!

Etsy shop, waiting on it's new home:)
More new things to come this week too!
The newest thing though is my insomnia is back full force thanks to Linus' discovery of Leah and Emily the beta fish. He is relentless at trying to get to them in the middle of the night. Poor little fish. Thank goodness that I wake up so easily! I have rescued their little fishy booties about three times a night every night for the last week or so. So now, I am wide awake all night again. Dumb, cute cats suck sometimes.

|My new favorite in brown leather with a little bit of olive green leather and some pumpkin colored suede with a button/loop closure.|

I just finished up a couple of cuffs that I have been working on FOREVER! One of which, I completely screwed up but it still looks pretty darn awesome, and it is still very wearable. I guess I will keep that one for myself. I am using rivets now, and with garment weight leather and suede it can be difficult to get those rivets set just right. I am working on it though.
It's been a really long week here. Not sure if it's just being inside a lot or my never ending list of things to do but I am super-tuckered-out this week. I imagine it's the rainy weather and being inside more than usual with two kids and a cold that just lives on and on and on. I've had to kick myself in the butt a couple of times this week just to keep myself moving. As much as I love Fall and Winter, I am looking forward to a little more daylight to work in. I plan to take advantage of it as much as possible, and not just for work, for play too:) The kids have a lot of plans for us. Lots of skateboarding, kite flying, park-going, evening walks, and hopefully swimming lessons! We will see what happens with that and all of us water-chickens here. I never liked going to the pool before the kids were born, not sure how I'll feel about it now, but I want my two to know how to swim! Other than that, nothing much to see here:) the same 'ol stuff, just the way I like it! Cheers!
