About

 Hi there! 

We try to live our life being happy and spreading that happiness wherever and however we can. That being said, we noticed that there are a few places in our life that was lacking something that made us smile and was personal at the same time. That is where our business comes in.  We make handcrafted leather mouse pads, valet trays, and handmade journals.

Hand bound 100 page journal

Talk about a cool journal, oil tanned leather with 100 pages that have literally been hand sewn in by us and the most perfect, vegetable tanned, leather closure that will hold your happy message or quote.

*Also just a heads up we use 100% natural, vegetable tanned leather from real cows and that means character.  But don't worry that's a good thing because it makes the leather cooler like stretch marks or bug bites that were on the cow before we even got it. Vegetable tanned leather gets darker with age and use.  Pretty cool right?

**Heads heads up; we reserve the right to not engrave anything vulgar, racist or otherwise      inappropriate for a family business. (We are going for happy here remember.)

Unsure how to get us your handwritten message? It's pretty simple really check out our video

Thank you for taking some of your time to check out our product, we sure like it and hope that you will too. 

Back us today and spread a little happiness to someone else. 

A little more about us

Since being married we have dreamed of many, many business ideas, but with juggling school, kids, house projects, and 2 cats it just never felt like the timing was right. 

 Recently we both felt that something had changed and we decided to make that jump and give our dream a shot. We are excited to learn and grow not only as a business but also as a family.  Thanks for stopping by. 

Risks and challenges

We already bought the laser, we have all our patterns, and we are ready to go. Our greatest risk is our products not being shared with friends, family, co-workers, and random acquaintances to help make our dream a reality.
