This is one of our latest handmade, beaded leather messenger bags. It’s a very large fringed bag made in soft burgundy leather and features an extra pocket inside and one on the back of the bag. This messenger bag is all hand stitched.

I started by beading the turtle.

Once the turtle is finished we set it aside. Now we create the bag.

Once the bag is completed I attach the beaded turtle . Once sewn down, I lace around it with leather lace. This gives the bag an extra dimension.

For the love of Spring

Peace on Mother Earth

Spring is here and it feels so awesome. It’s so grounding to work in the garden and play in the dirt. The rose bush is starting to get it’s new leaves and a few seeds are starting to sprout. The first flowers have shown their faces and the weather is warm and cold. Just like spring. We woke up to spring showers with thunder and lightning this morning. The birds are singing strong and all is well. Here are a few spring pictures from our Arizona home.

As the days go by I am forever grateful to be here and to be able to experience all the beauty of Mother Earth and all of life. This is what you can be a part of everyday. Sit with it all. Breath, feel and love. Open the door of your heart and let it all in. Let the sun and air move through you, let the thoughts drift by like clouds in the soft breeze. Listen to the songs of the birds carried by the wind. Go deep and let go.

Blessings of love and peace!

Beaded amulet bags

Wow ! What a month. First check this out. We have had 2 big snow storms this month. That is a record breaker for us. Yesterday, the sun started to show again. Once again, this fine morning, the sun has come in in all his glory.

Just to show you the second snowstorm looked like this. It actually snowed for 2 days. It does melt off pretty fast here in Arizona. 🙂

The little birds were waiting in the tree for the bird feeder to get full. I love watching these little winged ones. ❤

During all this weather we have been beading and sewing. Here a couple bags that are a little bigger than our usual medicine bags. They are 5 inches tall x 3 inches wide with a drawstring closure. They come in a variety of colors and if you prefer a neck strap , no problem. These are new in our Etsy shop.

Beading art

It’s been a busy week of beading. Beading is an absolute awesome way to center your mind and focus your attention. When beading all I can do is the one thing, well of course I usually put on some background music so I do listen to music. It’s a blessing to be able to do this art. The journey started for me a little more than 30 years ago.

This is the beadwork work in progress I showed you last week. It started with a Thunderbird. I put the beaded Thunderbird on a small leather pouch.

This amulet bag would be perfect for a special stone, crystal , medicine or keepsake. There are as many uses for these kinds of bags.

My work in progress this week is a beaded rainbow turtle. I have finished the turtle and am working on the bag. The bag is also going to have linear beadwork down the sides. Coming soon! 🙂 Here is a picture of the turtle.

That’s it for today. Thanks for taking a look.

This is the beginning of a work in progress beaded medicine pouch. I just finished this and love the way it turned out. It’s going to look cool on the saddle tan leather bag I make. I will show that finished work later on.

Another beaded favorite that I finished up is this beaded medicine bag that is ready to ship on our website.

Welcome 2019

Happy New Year to all ! Another year has come and gone and now we are in the new beginnings of a new year. We are so very grateful to all our customer friends for the awesome support we received in 2018. Thank you so very much for supporting our small business! You Rock! 🙂 ❤

We ended the year with a huge snowstorm and very cold temperatures. This picture is just the beginning of the snow storm. It is all starting to melt now but another storm is on it’s way to us. This is big in Arizona. We are used to maybe a little snow but it melts soon after it comes. It is very pretty!! I have to admit I will be happy to see it melt. In the meantime we stay home and off the roads. We ended up getting around 4 inches of snow. Yippie! 🙂

What a great time to be creative. That is what we are doing the beginning of this new year and onward. Staying warm by the fire we make new bags.

We are looking forward to seeing what this New Year brings. We wish you all the best going forward! 🙂

Blessings!
