As I write this letter…

This past summer we’ve been really super busy. Filling orders. Planning for wedding. Scheduling temporary shop closure. And a Special Summer Guest…

We had the honor and pleasure of having little Ellie stay with us. She was rescued by an organization called Bichon Fur Kids. We offered to be her foster family until she was placed in a forever home. Bailey had a blast having a little foster sister for a while.

Last night a new chapter in her life began. Her new forever family came by to pick her up. She’ll be living in San Luis Obispo with a great new Mommy and Daddy and older Bichon Brother. I know she’s gonna have the best time ever. We’re so happy that she’s got a new home and family that’ll love her forever.

We’ll miss you, Ellie! XOXO

On the GO!

It’s been a while since our last post. Sorry about that. We’re gonna keep it short and just give you a quick update on what we’ve been up to…

Since last I posted we went on a quick vacation to Sequoia National Park. We spent a few days in the great outdoors among some of the biggest trees. We took a stab at metallurgy (we could not melt this nickel):

And, on our last day leaving we spotted this dude:

So, since then we’ve pretty much been BUSY BUSY BUSY! We’ve gotten together with RaisCase and worked on straps for her new Fanny Packs – the Vida!

They’re made with Pendleton patterns, solid brass hardware, and black leather straps.

We’re also in the works to get some plant container hanger straps done for
