Oh Laura! I am in awe of your talents! Absolutely beautiful! I'm ashamed to admit that I sat here with my mouth hanging open as I opened up each photo. You and your Mom are so lucky to be able to share this passion.

Your book holders are gorgeous! I bet whoever got the one with the hummingbird loved it! I am an avid reader myself and would love to have something so special for my current book. The greenman is beautiful also. I've always appreciated Greenmen!

I love barrettes like those you make but my hair isn't thick enough for them to hold right. I can remember them from my high school days. My hair was shorter then and I was always jealous of the girls that had them with their long thick ponytails. I wear my hair up most of the time now, but when I've tried to wear a barrette like this, I feel like it's falling off to one side. Am I doing something wrong??? I've got a copper one too and saw one at the Reniassance Fair that had a square copper peg in it. When you inserted it into the holes of the copper, you'd turn it so the curve was against the barrette. But I can't wear that one either. About the only thing I am comfortable with is the banana clip and it has to be metal with a strong spring clip.

I have a question for you. Do you start with a piece of leather and do the stitching yourself, like with the wallet? By the way, my sister loves lizards and will appreciate that very much when she sees it!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful work Laura. I hope you'll come back and visit soon.
