I am inspired by people like mairuru and this exteremely talented designer/crafter to try my hand at leather work. Sure, I’m starting out with suede, but its only one step up to the real stuff. I come from a family of sicilians who ran their own shoe shop, not just your regular repairs but beautiful handmade boots and shoes. This project is a birthday present so I can’t divulge what it is exactly yet, but be certain that I’m very excited about it.
On another, more art based note, one of the talented women that rules my world (as far as inspiration and sheer amazement are concerened) has started her own blog, Soft Core, and it is a joy to the eye. Sarah Applebaum, enjoy.
