Changes happening

     Hello Everyone.  Update time.  As many of you know, I have become employed recently.  While this has created the financial stability that has been missing for the last few years, it seriously affects my available time.  This means I now have fewer opportunities to work with leather, far less than previously.

     I am not able to work predictably or consistently on any projects.  I will continue finding time to keep crafting when I can.  For any orders, there will be a delay as the item is created.  If I already have one made it will be sent out quickly.  I apologize if this changes any decisions on acquiring my work or creates any issues. 

     This is not actually a decision I have made, it is the nature of the situation.  I have always wanted to continue with my leatherwork at the current level.  I still enjoy creating and sharing with you.  I will stream when possible and complete projects as I can.

     My attempt at supporting my family in this manner has not worked out.  I appreciate all the support and encouragement from you in taking that chance, however, life has shown it is time to change direction.  My hope is that you can direct your attention to others who are engaged in being creative and give them a chance.

I have recently finished a video detailing how to make a tool roll from lightweight leather.  It is a simple design that can be used to hold a variety of objects.  Anything you need to organize or store can be accommodated with these simple steps.

Hello there.  I have begun posting videos of some of the work I am doing on various projects.  If you would like to see all the available videos about the Steampunk Bracers, there is now a playlist that you can go.  This combines all of these videos in one convenient location.  Just click HERE.
