IT STARTED WITH A JOKE

This business started with a joke, but it has turned into the creation you see now!


My wife and I have a relationship that we feel comfortable enough to tease each other without getting feelings hurt. We've been through some tough times together and have found the best way to get through some of them is to laugh...the only other option is cry, and that is unacceptable.


I had quit drinking and needed a creative outlet. I used to play video games but they lost their appeal. I play guitar but I learned in my teen years that being a rock star was not the life I really wanted to live. I tried models but they just weren't quite what I was looking for. I wasn't sure I would ever find this elusive creature.


Then it happened! We were walking through a local vendor's mall when we came across this stall that was filled with leather sides, lace and rolls of scrap leather. It caught my eye and my wife said, "There you go, get you some leather." After which she started walking further down the aisle. I stayed behind and stared at all the rolled up hides, smelled the animalistic scent of leather and felt the hides, enraptured by the feel of leather under my fingertips. This woke up something in me that I had forgotten. Years ago, age unremembered, I had done a wallet project and some other item with leather. This was something I now remember having liked.


Meanwhile, my wife had disappeared and I went looking for her before she put out a missing spouse alert. When I caught up with her, I said, "You might be joking, but I think this is not a bad idea." She turned to me and said, "Go ahead and get you something." Neither one of us knew what we were opening at that time.


I then went online and found an affordable (cheap) beginner tool set for leathercrafting. I bought my first side of leather from that stall. My first project was a keychain, which I still have to this day. Here it is in all its glory!!

Now you know the humble beginning.

We hope you will join us on this wonderful ride we started in a vendor's mall with a joke.


I am not a photographer by any stretch of the classification but I will learn as I go. Please remember this as you look at our items, I do them no justice in photos. LOL
