Oh Hi! I’m Jamie. I am a leathercrafter and designer of Tiger Lily Leather. I am pursing my dream of becoming a full time boutique owner and blogging about my journey here. I started this project on July 2, 2011 — my 24th birthday. This is a lifestyle blog that follows my work with leather, friends, and inspirations. I tend to focus a whole lot of goals and moving back to my home in Arizona. (BIG GOAL!) I also plan to teach a little bit of the craft as I blog.. hopefully you like to learn!
If you want to get to know me, keep reading and watch my own story unfold.
What sort of things do I blog about?
I like things that are pretty, or make me happy or inspired. I love fashion, diy, handmade items, music, food, cameras, crafts, knitting, art, traveling, and inspiring people. I also just finished my degree in teaching high school English.. so I may nerd out sometimes.
What do I do?
Well, I just graduated college with my BA in English for Secondary Education… meaning I am going to be a high school English teacher. However, I have yet to find a career in education as so many others struggle with all the budget cuts. However, I now have more time to pursue other dreams like opening a leather goods shop! When I’m not working at my job that currently pays the bills, I am working on items for my shop, my blog, or hanging out with my boyfriend of 5 years. Life is good, it’s not perfect, but it’s charming.
Thanks for reading my little blog!
