I came home from work and just wanted to zone out for a bit.
So-I watched The September Issue.
I love documentaries of all kinds and since I like fashion as much as the next girl I chose this one from my Netflix watch instantly que. I wouldn't say it was good or bad. It was just interesting. A peek inside the world of Vogue magazine. Kind of sad really though to be so consumed with fashion because in the end fashion is pretty meaningless. But...that is just my opinion of course.

ice cream

Right now I am at work and it's incredibly slow. The weather is perfect outside but I am stuck inside sitting at a desk. I do however have a really big window in front of me. As I stare out of it I am dreaming of ice cream. I haven't had any in a while. Sounds really good.

faith,hope, and love

1 Corinthians 13:13-
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

These words have been swirling around in my head all week and so why not put them on a belt.
I love this belt so much that I am keeping it for myself. I put LOTS of hours into this thing. The leather was much thicker and tougher than the leather I have been working with so every step took quite a bit longer.

I am going to make this belt a custom order on my site so others can love it too!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

This has been a really good week for me. I was kind of sick for a few days, but I am feeling better now.( I think I caught a stomach bug from a co-worker) I made 3 etsy sales this week and for me that is awesome! I also got to hang out with some really good gals. I have amazing friendships blooming here in Spring Hill. We got a little further on our bedroom painting and watched some good movies.

Good night you all. Here comes a new week!

I just tried my hand at homemade black bean burgers. I would show you a pict but you might throw up because they look like blobs of poo. Unfortunately they taste a bit like it too. BUMMER!

This is my craft table. I seem to be spending a lot of time here these days. I just finished the purse below.
I made a tiny micro purse that I named Love Note Purse in my store and it gave me the idea to actually make a real purse that can fit more than a single coin. This project brought a lot of satisfaction but man oh man did it take a lot of time. I had to draw up the pattern for the purse, tool design, paint design, punch all rivet holes, set rivets, figure out a way to get a liner in there without sewing it. Anyways- I just finished it and I am so exhausted but I think it turned out great. It still needs a strap. I bought some leather to make one but I decided it isn't quite right so the next time I am back in Nashville I will have to get something else.
This is the back design. It says FLOURISH under the flowers. I like the idea of putting encouraging and positive words on some of my pieces. To me they are just good reminders when you see them.
The front. flowers and stars and a ton of rivets. The inside liner is a really cool fabric with muti colored polk-a-dots.
It seems like my blog has been all about my hobby lately. Hope you don't mind.

It's Easter!

This weekend has been a great one. We got some much needed things done around the house like new flooring in the master bathroom and I planted some seeds in my garden.I also saw the movie The Last Song. Made another Etsy sale too! SWEET!

Here is a little thing I made this weekend. It's so cute I can hardly stand it! Find it in my store.
