Trying Something New

Instead of waking up to go film last Saturday, Brad and I went to learn how to make Stock & Barrel‘s beautiful leather bags! I love to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. Especially as a couple! It’s easy to get caught up in our own routines, and I feel like learning/doing something new always strengthens our relationship for some reason. Plus, trying new things always keeps my creative juices flowing. 🙂 It was so cool to learn everything that goes into crafting these bags (they are SO MUCH WORK!) from cutting the leather, to marketing to the consumer. We laughed our heads off when I was using the huge sledge hammer — “Look out for the pregnant lady with the hammer!” Hahah! I couldn’t be trusted with some of those tools. 😉 Businesses like these seriously blow my mind, because they couldn’t be more different than ours! Be sure to check out Make + Master for more rad courses like this. I love what they’re doing.Thanks for the video, Jared!

    Sounds like fun! It'd be nice to find something similar around here.

    This sounds awesome! I would love to learn something new like this, especially if I had my hubby with me. 🙂
