Back to work

Good morning, afternoon or evening depending on when you read this.

The wonderful tunes of Beirut's album the Rip tide are playing as I slowly organize the studio of Lennard Taylor. December is always a busy month, with craft sales, orders, demands and then the chaos of making presents for family and friends. Im sure you all know what I am talking about! The smooth rhythms that Beirut play make me coast into the work cycle again, not easy but its happening. There is a warmth in my heart about this next year, I feel it will be a very big one, well at least here is to hoping :D

Leather, I am obsessed, I want to continue making leather pieces over and over! Raw edged leathers smooth as butter made into jackets with minimal snaps makes the wearer feel like royalty. I have a couple, oh me oh my I loves them!!! A friend of mine just got back from Turkey and brought me a few lamb skins which feel so good I am scared to work with them!!!! I'll post some pictures soon.

One last thing, Love one another, be with love and love will surround those around you.

Be well friends :)

Thank you to those who came to the WFI first fashion market this past weekend at Red River College!!!

I sit on a board for the First Fridays committee which is a group of wonderful men and women who promote and plan First Fridays in the exchange district. Basically the First Friday of each month, artists in the exchange district open up their studios to the public in hopes that they will buy their creations. Its a great way to be up close to what artists studios are like and to be able to ask any questions in an intimate setting. Please come out and support what we do :) First Fridays Website

A friend of mine named Jeff Barkman recently asked me to listen to his album which just dropped on Itunes!!! I very much enjoyed the music and thought I would share that with you!!! Take a look and support a talented guy who puts his heart and soul into his music!
