Ordered 3 custom cuffs for #SoundersFC and #emeraldcitysupporters. Love them all! Workmanship is spot on. Can't wait to give as gifts. Thank you Kim!
Love for Leather and Creating Art
I started Sleepy Holow Leather as a hobby in 2009. I started out decorating ladies military caps which brought me to Tandy and signed up for the free classes that came with my membership and was hooked on leather! I ended up taking a break just as I was starting to learn the craft as my dad fell ill and was hospitalized for 9 months. He passed way in January 2010 and it took a while to be interested in anything really. The leather bug did bite again but, unfortunately, in December 2010 I was diagnosed with an unruptured brain aneurysm and had to have major brain surgery. After recovering from surgery and regaining my strength in late 2011, I began to do leather work again with a whole new outlook on life and enthusiasm!
I noticed there was a trend with beading and leather and I have been beading for almost 32 years - yes I started in the womb lol - and I was inspired by a fellow leatherworker who encouraged me to get back at beading again. You either love beading or hate it and I really love it. I find it very relaxing and I enjoy making quality pieces for my leather work and really enjoy collaborating with other leather workers for their projects.
I live on a small acreage in Alberta Canada with my amazing husband (Bill) and our animals, two mini donkeys (Jose and Cisco), three goats (Curly, Manny, and Papi), barn cat (JJ), and our two dogs and my steady shop help Blue and Satchel. ;) I enjoy the quiet country life and the time if affords me to create in a quite and peaceful place.
I am the the owner operator. All items I have created by my hands unless otherwise stated, as I do like to collaborate with other artisans!
Can make lemonade out of lemons. Shop assistant of all things leather ~ Awesome customer service skills, must like kisses.
Bead and gemstone studio assistant and overall entertainment ham of the group. Works for cookies or anything you call a "treat."
I do a variety of leather work, bead work, and wire work with gemstones, and in winter I like to knit! I am currently dabbling in silversmithing as well. Some items I can create for you are dog collars and leashes, bracelets, cuffs, belts, wallets, purses, covers, cases, horse tack and just about anything else you can think of!
I like to collaborate with people and other artisans to create unique pieces that are high quality and will be one-of-a-kind for you or your four-legged friend! I guarantee my work!
