Do you call this Anal or Organization?

November was really chaotic, so I decided to prepare for December. Getting organized really helps my productivity. This is where I keep my fabric. Next time I will post where I keep my leather - I'm working on cleaning up that act.

Off to Japan!

I wish it were me, but it is this bag I just finished for one of my favourite clients. It is a cross between my Queen Guinevere and Bronwyn.

I really love how it turned out. Green and gold flocked velvet, tweed and leather OH MY!

The fever continues........
I made the first one on the weekend and it sold! So I made another in hopes of a repeat performance.

I've got Steampunk Fever

I love science-fiction that's for sure, but there is something romantic when you mix the future with the past.

Here is my first attempt at Steampunk. I'm pleased with how it turned out and will be making more things.

You can always, get them in my online boutique though.

This one is mine!

I made a new bag! I was supposed to put it in my Etsy shop but I changed my mind.
My excuse..... I am keeping this one for myself to 'test' all the wearing possibilities, it's purely a business decision ;-)
Yes, it's leather!

New Product!

AMO Leather Bling Rings are here!

I have been working on them for awhile and wanted to list a lot earlier but I had ordered some sizing tools that fell through and had to wait another set that I ordered on Ebay.
Here are a sampling of what is to come. I have already listed this one.

July Updates

July is the best month of the year and it also happens to be my birthday month. This year I turned 40!

I still can't believe it. Anyhow, It came and went without incident. My mother reminded me that when I turned 30 I was really depressed - I can't remember any of that.
I wanted to do something special for myself so I joined the gym. I joined my whole family in fact. I am really excited to get back into shape and have a strong body again.
Jolie was in Kiddie Carnival for the 2nd year in a row!
Her band came in 1st last year and 3rd place this year.

I also upgraded my Walking Foot to this Beauty!
I leave you with a couple custom orders I have done.

Look what I got in the mail yesterday! I ordered these through Deanna from rockrunphotography and love how they turned out.

I wanted to use my signature Pagoda shaping. I also got stickers made.

New Beginnings

I launched the opening of a new store front on Etsy! Introducing:

Your place for inspiration and all things beautiful!

So far I've only added lingerie supplies from when I used to make un-mentionables.

Stop by and give me a heart if you like!

A Freak in the bedroom!

Okay, so it is not what you think - though my husband would love it if it were ;-)

No, what I'm talking about is Obstructive Sleep Apnea and sleeping with the aid of a CPAP mask and machine. Five years ago I was diagnosed with severe OSA but instead of going with the recommendation of using a CPAP machine, I opted out because I was vain.
I found myself drowsy in the mornings and pinching myself to stay awake on the morning commute. Now that I have been sleeping with the aid of the machine, I haven't been cutting off my oxygen levels thereby causing sleep deprivation and risking heart attack, stroke and much more!
I may look like a freak but at least I'll live to tell about it.

Here I am on my 2nd week and 3 masks later. My first mask I called 'fighter pilot', the 2nd I called 'pig nose' and this 3rd one I call 'the diver'.

I hope the diver will be the one for me. You can read more on Obstructive Sleep Apnea here.

A new Twist on an old Favourite

I was contacted last week by a man who wanted me to make one of my Deluxe Slim-line wallets with hidden zippered compartments for his wife.

His wife had purchased one of my Metro-Man wallets for him before and loved the wool/leather combination. (incidentally, he loves his wallet too!)
I usually do them with the leather on the outside, for this order, the leather is on the inside - I think I will be making more of this version for sure.

How BOLD can I go?

Well take a look. This is my attempt at putting it all together, to try and tie in all the bold pieces.
Check here where I made the sofa seat covers in a funky fabric I found. After that I realized that I still had to somehow pull in the colours from THE funky chair.
At first I wasn't sure if I succeeded or if I even liked it, but it has grown on me. It has been about 2 weeks and I think It's a keeper.
