Well, I now live in Phoenix, AZ

I moved back home to my native land. I love it. I’m in love with the weather, the vegetation, the places to go and see. I’m so happy. I hope this reflects in my leather work. I could go for some inspiring pieces. Hello Summer, I know you are just around the corner and this year, it’s my summer of AZ love.

DIY Project: Leather Message Patch

Here is a simple project to help you work on your lettering. Letter stamping is easy, simple, and fun . . . However, it definitely takes practice to line up your letters right and make your words look spaced out correctly. A fun little project like a patch to sew onto your backpack or luggage is perfect for learning your letter spacing.

Here is what you will need for this project

– Letter kit
– Piece of letter suitable to fit your favorite quote or saying
– Leather hole punch
– A Hard work surface
– A mallet
– water
– Sponge

We will not work on dying this piece. I like stamps that have a natural leather look that age on their own. Aged natural leather tells a story. So wherever you put your patch, the story is told.

Sew your patch to a bag and watch it age gracefully with every adventure!

Natural Product Review: Kiss My Face Liquid Rock Deoderant

I have recently started to switch all of my bathroom and beautifying products to natural and organic ones. The end result is that I am having less issues to deal with meaning I can buy less products which means more money for coffee dates or those Clarks desert boots I’ve been eyeing.

So o am going to start some product reviews and let you guys in on the pros and cons that I find.

Today’s product review is over Kiss My Face roll on liquid crystal deodorant. I’ve stopped using antiperspirants due to their ties with altimers disease. I like this roll on because they are easy to apply and the perfumed one has a pleasant scent to it that hints at fresh flowers.

Pros
– Smells pretty but not overpowering.
– Works well to hide odor once your body gets used to it.
– Dries semi quickly
– I have not stained any clothes with it
-small enough to take on a plane.

Cons
– Takes a while for your body to get used to it. You will need back up on a hot day.
– Doesn’t stop sweat because it is not an antiperspirant.

Verdict: 4/5

It’s my first watch I made for this collection. It’s wrap watch made from a handmade leather strap and a Geneva face. The awesome thing about Geneva watch faces is that they are guaranteed for life!

Recipe: Almost Calorie-Free Cinnamon Iced Coffee

I brew all my coffee in a french press, but brew your desired way.

You will need
-coffee
-ice
-ground cinnamon
-stevia
-splash of milk or milk substitute (optional)

+Add couple dashes of ground cinnamon to your ground coffee of choice (I add more grounds as usual because you are going to iced this coffee down and it avoids a watery taste).
+Brew your coffee and allow it to cool a couple of minutes.
+Pour your coffee in a tumbler or cup filled with about 5-6 iced cubes.
+Add a packet of Stevia to your coffee and stir
+(Optional) If you like a creamy iced coffee add a splash of milk (I like either 2%, Vanilla Almond Milk or Vanilla Coconut Milk)…. Keep in mind this is where your calorie content comes from so it’s up to you how much you want consume.

I would give Starbucks a run for it’s money with this recipe. It came out way better than expected and it’s really simple! Happy Brewing!
