So as you can see a few flowers have started to come up and everything is in slow motion. One day it’s warm and then winter is back with cold , cold temps. We have had an unusual winter here in Arizona. I am happy we have gotten more rain. some places up north are getting a lot of snow. I prefer rain. Hey, but where we live even if it snows it only stays for a day. So today I thought I would work on this blog. I get so busy with so many things like beading and leather work that I don’t write. This is my attempt to blog again. We will see how it goes. Gardening is coming up very soon and that will take my afternoon and evenings. We are looking so forward to spring and all the beautiful flowers.
I do container gardening because at my age it’s so much easier on my back, knees and all around everything. I don’t have to deal with grass , gophers, moles, and weeds. Especially gophers and moles. They just move peacefully on when they can’t get into my buckets.
Today I am going to start on a beaded turtle for a pipe bag.

Good morning! My blog has a new look. I found out that my old theme was going out so I had to decide what theme to use. It’s not that easy to pick one. Long story short, tada! Hopefully when I publish all will look great. In the world of computers there are always changes to keep up with. Just like life……. 🙂
A while back I posted on our facebook page a beaded turtle work in progress picture. I have finished the beaded turtle and made a tote for it to live on. That is what I would like to show you today. All the pictures have a link back to this bag.
This bag has recently SOLD. If you would like a custom beaded bag contact us here Thunder Rose Leather This leather tote is all hand stitched. It all started with a work in progress turtle. See the pic below.
The beaded turtle has a beautiful turquoise cabochon in the center as a focal point. The beads next to the turquoise cabochon are fire polish glass beads I purchased from Janice at Flutterbye Bead Supply on Etsy. The seed beads are size 11 and I sell them in our bead and leather supply store Thunder Rose Supplies.
It all started right here .
Measurements on this tote are 10 inches tall x 10 inches wide x 2 3/4 inches deep. It has an extra pocket inside. This leather tote makes a great everyday bag. I carry one this size and love it.
As you can see there is a lot of room. I wear mine crossbody and I find it very easy to open and close with the antler tip closure. It is very easy and convenient to get in and out of and the antler tip closure is very secure.
This beaded leather tote is waiting for it’s new home.
Good morning! We are enjoying a nice spring here in Arizona. We could use some rain as always but the things are blooming and the garden is coming up.

Good morning friends! I hope everyone had a beautiful day of giving thanks! During these holidays John and I really try to stay at a steady pace. So everything we make is very well made and there is no OMG stress. In our online stores most everything is made to order. But this year we have some “READY TO SHIP SECTIONS”. We have been making the things we make for over 25 years and have learned there is no way to have every single thing we make sitting there ready to ship out .
This year we have ready to ship leather handbags, beaded handbags , medicine bags wallets, and a few pair of baby moccasins. You can find all of these sections in our ETSY SHOP THUNDER ROSE , in the first three sections after the ON SALE section. Just so you know we are running a sale. When you buy $30. or more you receive 20% off.
We are no longer making promises for things to get to you by Christmas that are made to order. But the ready to ship items go out in one or two days. No problem.
Sometimes we are running a little ahead of schedule but not always. In the end we just want to make sure everyone gets something quality made. So that is what we do.
Here are some things that we have in our ready to ship sections.
Over the years we have designed and made a lot of different styles , sizes and kinds of medicine bags / amulet bags for our customers. Each individual has a purpose and reason why they need a special bag in their life. Some are for a special stone, crystal or medicines ( like sage, cedar , tobacco or whatever is their favorite). They can be used to keep a special piece of jewelry in while traveling. There are so many ways to use them. The reason to say “special medicine bags ” is because they are special , just for you or can be given as a gift and cherished forever.
I do many beaded medicine bags. Some with totems of a special kind like wolf paw totems, bear claw totems , turtle totems or sometimes just a nice colorful chevron. Whatever speaks to your heart.
This week I worked on a sweet small white buckskin medicine bag that has a lot of glass crow beads and tin cones on it. I liked it so much I made another one and added it to our shop . It dances and sings. Why? Because of the long fringes with the beads and cones. They jingle a nice song!
This kind of special medicine bag can be worn around the neck or it could be used for home decoration. It would be a special keepsake gift for a special friend.
Take a look.
This is a small neck bag with beaded chevrons. A very simple and beautiful small leather pouch.
To see more of our small pouches come by our online stores and check out what we have. If you need something special made up just let us know we do special custom orders.
