Resolutions and Goals

Hello and Happy New Year! I know some people get tired of the whole New Years Resolution and goal setting thing, but not me! I love and look forward to the start of a new year. The idea of a fresh start, clean slate, out with the old, in with the new, lets git-er-done sort of mentality is so appealing to me.

One of the first goals i'm setting this year, and also already completing by publishing this post, high-five!, is committing to blog regularly (yay!). What I hope to offer through my blog to you, is a look into my leather studio, sharing the methods and tools that I use in my bag-making, sharing the history of stuff related to making (because I love the history of stuff) and at the very least maybe some inspiration through some pretty pictures I hope to post of all the places that 2017 takes me. Like.....this house we stayed at to ring in the new year upstate last weekend.

For the record, other specific goals for me this year are:

  1. Learn how to use a non-iphone camera (pathetic, I know)
  2. Create some fun behind-the-scenes studio and how to videos. This requires looking for people to collaborate with..hint hint. If you're into making videos and wanna collaborate, hit me up. 
  3. A redesign of some current bags, including mixing and matching straps and leather embroidery, what?  

Upfront, I'd like to thank you for reading and I always welcome your honest feedback on everything and at all points. 

Here's to a great 2017! I think it's going to be a good one.
