satsuma

It’s that surreal time of year, where coffee and a shower, olives and wine, might be the only punctuations in the long days of work. I almost forgot what this felt like, to wake up and work straight until bed time. Happy Holidays :)

 

We just ate dinner (leftovers, creatively layered in a bake pan by Steven, and topped with sharp cheddar cheese) and then I felt inspired to sit down for a quick blog.

The wrap + snap has been keeping me pretty busy this season. After the fun brainstorm and trials I had that resulted in this, it’s been super satisfying to see this new little gadget companion be so well received. I’m looking forward to having the chance to work on more innovations of a similar vein. I’ve been getting some great feedback from my customers – mostly ladies who are excited to have found the perfect small gift for their husbands and boyfriends (and themselves, too).

While I work, Steven has been making some pretty big changes around me. We’re working on streamlining my studio space so that it’s more organized and efficient. He hauled out most of the old fixtures and funky, makeshift shelving, and has been replacing them with new work benches and creative storage solutions. I’ve invested in some new equipment, added to my tool set, and pared down on some of the stash I no longer use. I am loving all the changes and have been so grateful for the help! This is something I have talked about for a long time, but never seem to have the time for.

I need to do some organizing once things settle down, but already I have more space to spread out, and each step of production is finding it’s own designated place.

Not sure why, but I feel excited about the holidays more than usual this year. It’s a nice feeling, and I can’t wait for the chance to do some gift making.

How about you? Hope you all are feeling well and enjoying the season.

Ha. Belting it out today with a new ladies belt!

The Double Keeper Belt in Cognac Brown, made with some of the most beautiful vegetable tanned leather I’ve had the opportunity to work with. This is the same leather I use for my mouse pads, but it has been split down to a 6 ounce weight for a more flexible feel.

I am really pleased with the finish and love this clean, classic hardware.

Just wanted to share a couple new small items that have recently been added to the shop. I’ve been refining my version of a cable keeper, and have come up with something we really like using, looks great on the desk and is easy to take with you.

And, our old classic pencil case is now available in honey mustard organic canvas. I have also brought this back in slate waxed canvas .

weekend

Have a great weekend! It’s been raining here for a couple days – finally enough to provide a true, quenching soak after a very dry spring. It’s supposed to clear up just in time for my birthday this weekend, and I’m looking forward to a trip up the river for swimming, hiking, sunning, eating, drinking and celebrating life and the season of summer.

A few small summer treats:

Beautiful, quick dry linen towels (for all year long)

We recently purchased one of these

And I really want to make a batch of these

And lastly, just in the shop, a new beach bag

Enjoy this last weekend of June xo

I’ve been working on finishing up all the odd unfinished projects laying around in the studio. These things above are a few of them (you can click the images to learn more).

Years ago, I had a terrible habit of starting things and never finishing them. I worked really hard to break that habit, and I did. I kicked it pretty well, and really, I think I became a different and better person because of that! But sometimes, there are those things that that still get put aside I guess.

To me it is super satisfying to see a work in progress finally come to life, no matter how great or small.

And to wish you all a great weekend!

I’m looking forward to finishing up some totes I’ve had in progress for what feels like forever, planting in the garden, and just taking some time to chill out.

Take it easy friends xo

A bunch of new pouches and clutches have been added to the shop. Highlighted above are a few of my personal favorites. Have a look if you like! Many of them are one of a kind.

I’m especially excited about the woven leather pieces, and am working on more.
