Trendy Metallic Gold Purses and The Leather Guy

I always feel like a kid when I see something shiny. My eyes light up and I just have to have that item no matter what it is a dress, shoes, handbag or a leather coin purse. This was exactly the case when I came across the beautiful leather hides from The Leather Guy. I started using small pieces of leather back in Summer 2015 when we started making clutches and pouches.

Handmade Card Making Ideas with the Paper Source

It’s safe to say that my love for the Paper Source knows no bounds. Ever since I discovered their stores, I have spent countless hours crafting and making cards. I’m so addicted to Paper Source that I call it my happy place. Before discovering their stores, I knew nothing about card making yet alone embossing.
