I don't know about you all but my 2017 was pretty busy and 2018 hasn't let up much. Last year I graduated with my degree, took an internship in Peru and got a job as a professional archaeologist. I had other big happenings in my family too but I'll leave that for another post. What I want to say with this post is that I am still around, I am open for business, I have new projects on mind and I have new products out right now!
Three of my newest listings include leather notebooks, and and one-of-a-kind handmade machetes.
Aren't they all so pretty? :)
I also have a few events that that I have been invited to demonstrate at coming up in the month of May.
I hope to see you there!
P.S. I've received a few requests concerning custom orders, usually concerning swords, so let me share with you a few of the things that will help you get your custom orders to you faster:
1, what kind of item do you want (picture reference is great, I can take drawings too)
2, what dimensions
3, what is the intended use
4, do you need accessories or cases (like specialty scabbards)
5, when do you need it by.
I usually respond within a day to all inquiries so if you do not hear back from me within 18 hours of sending your message, please try contacting me again by email or through Etsy. This is especially important since the contact page on this website does not automatically ensure that your email address is correct when you input it in the form.
2018 has been one of the weirdest years in my entire life. I do not want to call it bad, but it wasn't great either. I was able to go and make something happen with my career, but at the same time, I had a lot of problems down the stretch. I think that it was still a fine year. I hope that the next years become a lot better, because it needs to be if I want to get better.
