Independence Day Featuring Cari from Crochet Hooked and John Rodgers from Thunder Rose Leather

It's Saturday and way hot here in Arizona. It was 114 degrees yesterday. Yes, we are having a heat wave.
Our blog ring on Handmade Artist' are doing a theme on Independence day and John and I are the featured artists.
I love it! I wasn't gonna do a post but then I decided too. So, since I am an independent woman but I believe in inter- dependence. Which means basically we are all connected and need each other and that makes the world go round.
First of all I would like to share 
Cari designs beautiful Beaded Wire Crochet Braided Bracelets. She branded then Braidlets. She taught herself to crochet 11 years ago and over the years she has made baby items, hats, lapel pins, scarfs and jewelry. 
I have found these beautiful pieces from Cari's store.


Both of these beautiful beaded pieces would be perfect for the fourth of July or any other time of year. What a perfect gift for a friend.

You can more of Cari's work here

Now I am going to share something from

John is my husband . He has mastered the art of designing leather handbags. When a customer calls or writes and has an unusual request John can totally put together in his mind how to create this custom order request. In the more than 20 years of doing business and being his partner, he has never disappointed anyone. His leather work is loved around the world. He has taught me so much about crafting with leather. 
John is a kind and loving human being who I have been with for 33 years. I am so grateful to have him in my life. He is my best friend.

Here is one of his Buckskin leather totes.

Places to find John and me

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a beautiful day !
