stoked !!

the story goes like this...

i was at red envelope yesterday handing sharon (the owner) 3 sets of elephant coasters :) whoot! and i was yacking away like usual and sort of twiddling some cute leather keychains by her counter.

off hand i said ... "i wonder where i could find some pieces of leather"

sharon asked "for what"?

i said "well ... i dunno yet, crafts i guess"

sharon smiled and tore out a little piece of paper, wrote an address and phone number on it and handed it to me.

"go find my sister, she deals with leather"

i looked at her "but i only need a couple of small pieces, old ones that no one wants"

sharon said "go find my sister"

so i went today :)

have no idea what i'm gonna do with them but i can't wait to get my hands on them :) scraps that no one wants ... i got them! i'm stoked!!

happy pimping! :)


  1. Hey there, wow, all that leather - imagine mixed media paintings with leather flowers throughout - my mom gave me a heap of leather too a few months ago and I stretched it over wooden frames (like a canvas) then painted on them, they turned out really good - make sure you show us what you make with this treasure!!! Enjoy!

  2. How cool is that! That's the best way to get things- talk about what you need with everyone, and someone is bound to be that ONE person that can help ;)
    Whatever you decide to do with them, I want to see photos!

  3. What fun to get such treasures. Looks like you will be crating some wonderful things I love those colours. Have fun

  4. Oh how fabulous Luthien! I'm thinking books perhaps but you're SO creative I can't wait to see what you create with them!!

  5. wow... these look soo cool!!!.... i lurve rugged designs... ^^

  6. Ooh they are lovely - all full of possibilities!! Want to see photos when you've decided what to make with them!
