So happy to be home again and back to work! It’s crazy to think how much I miss leatherworking when I’m away from it… I never dreamed that I’d be lucky enough to find a career that could excite, fulfill, and empower me like this does. The freedom that comes with it, the instantly wonderful new friends I’ve made because of it. How being a part of something that has a history that brings generations of people from all walks of life and from around the world together… Its Fuckin’ BadAss! (excuse my French! Hahaha!)… Yup I’m in a great mood and working on some of those new designs I’ll be adding to the shop. This here’s gonna be Victorian inspired sorta pocketbook thingy. And its gonna get an inlayed Moss Opal… Stoked! Plus its time to settle in here properly! No more big trips for a while. Just creation! Okay, I’m gonna shut up and get back to “work”… Cheers yall! #PMA #leathercrafting #lonerlife #handmade #beyourownboss #wettingtheleathernotwettingthebed #sleepdeprivedandproudofit #leatherworking #madeintheusa
I accidently deleted this a second ago, so here’s round two:
I’ve been bad about posting new stuff lately, which is gonna change over the next few weeks since I’ll be adding a buncha new designs to the website! Here’s a pocketbook that’s gonna be up soon, and I plan on keeping in the shop for a bit… Been crazy obsessed with turn of the century art nouveau & art deco leather handbags & pocketbooks. The simple elegance & practicality of it all floats my boat! Here’s to keeping “it” down to earth… #leather #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathertooling #leathercarving #handmade #handcrafted #madeintheusa #hashtaghell
I’ve been meaning to use this border design again for a pocket book since its so elegant & simple, plus I’ve been obsessed lately with Art Nouveau & Deco handbags and pocket books from the 1920’s.
Here’s my pal Ken’s wisdom of the day quote… He’s brilliant.
Got this buddy ready to be assembled. I was messing around with a kinda organic acanthus scroll sorta deal, goin along with my obsession with ornamental designs. Tho this was definitely a freeform idea instead of being strictly geometric… It was based loosely around logarithmic spirals. Yup, I’m tired…. Hahaha! #leather #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leathercarving #handmade #handcrafted #madeintheusa
I watched this tonight for the first time, and I think it’s a great “New World Order 101” sorta primer for folks who are just beginning to question what’s happening in the world today. The official narrative’s by the Mainstream Media aren’t cutting the proverbial mustard anymore. A lot of you younger folks out there in Tumblrland who are aching for Truth, especially here in the United States, where “common core” public schooling is meant to confuse, condition, and indoctrinate you, can watch this and have a bunch of great jumping off points that’ll lead you to Greater Knowledge. Which then can be used for betterment, which is Wisdom, AKA “Knowledge put to good use”!
So if you want something to watch that’ll both make you feel Naughty, AND Smarter, Check this out. Then start to look into this stuff. We all have to start educating ourselves and each other because we all have a very important question to answer, and that is do we want to be slaves, or do we want to be truly free? Its our generation’s turn to stand up. No more passing the buck to anyone else. We have to stand up and say “No More”!
RT is the best English language news source available to Americans. On January 29, RT published a photo of 5 presidential appointees lying through their teeth to Congress.
All five of these Gestapo wannabes are in violation of their oath of office to protect the Constitution of the United…
I ended up getting home to Nashville from Austin at around 3:30 this morning after driving all day. I was thinking I’d fall asleep, but ended up fooling around n tooling a bit since I’m totally wired apparently!? Yay, Stuff! #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercarving #handcrafted #handmade #madeintheusa #lonerlife
Here’s the fancy innards, some velvety black suede goodness, for your perusal, and look at that!? Is that an extra pocket for a phone!? Oh yes, yes it is…
Also, for the historical instagram records (that means you there Mr.NSA Analyst) I’m in Austin for a couple days picking up the last of my stuff from storage… Hit me up if ya want, I got some wallets with for sale. If ya see me, just ask. #leather #leathercraft #leathercrafting #leathercarving #leathercraft #leathercrafting #handcrafted #handmade #madeintheusa
So, I feel like I’ve been shirking my Instagram duties of late!? Yes/No? I’ve been wrapped up in my new shop and getting stuff going in Nashville, being a hermit so much up in my new room, which is really big n nice and very conducive to my creative processes, that I oftentimes neglect my duties as a “New Man About Town”. So much so that my roommate’s have taken to actually calling me Anne Frank. I ain’t shitin’ ya!? It’s pretty fuckin funny…. Oh yeah, this is the back! #leatherwork #leathercraft #leatherworking #leather #leathercrafting #leathercarving #handmade #handcrafted #madeintheusa
