It’s been a really good week on Etsy.  Obviously it was an inspired idea to make a bunch of business card holders/wallets, because I just sold the last envelope-type one that I made, and someone is waiting for me to make a few more of one of the other types so that he can buy a couple at once.  These are easy to make, too, and they turn out looking very nice.  I made one for myself to hold business cards and really like it.

The really exciting Etsy sell this week was this custom Skyrim mage’s bag and belt —-

magemage satchel and belt

I know, the one on the right isn’t a great picture, but it gives you a pretty good idea of how it turned out.  The guy who bought it said that he’s cosplaying as a Skyrim mage, so this was pretty much perfect for that.  I think the burned pattern is slightly off, but I just made it to match the actual apothecary satchel so whatever.

Anyway, I decided to use the money I made off of this to renew my subscription to the New Yorker.  Have been going without for, um, a really long time now.  I think it’s been less than a year, but I can’t remember for sure.  The subscription price used to be around $50 (which was still pretty high) but has gone up to more like $100 now — waaay out of my price range.  However, I will gladly trade some leather workings for a subscription, which is basically what this turned out to be.  😀  Very exciting.

So yeah.  There you have it.  I’m starting to wonder if I need a new workspace — like maybe I should re-do my library to make it a library/leatherings studio.  My living room is pretty much a constant mess and I’d like to be able to keep it orderly.  Makes me feel better to walk into a clean house – plus i need to use my library more.  Hmmmm.
