Olive with Natural leather
 

What are your favorite WS products to make?

The good ol’ Garrison (it’s the first bag I learned how to make) and stitching wallets (it’s meditative).

Current snack of choice:

Homemade hummus or babbaganouj with veggies
 

What sparked your last belly laugh?

Anything clever.  I have at least one a day.

Secret talent outside of Winter Session:

Traveling light. I traveled through Colombia for two weeks (by plane, taxi, bus, ferry and foot) carrying only my red Day Bag. It fit everything I needed: sandals, two dresses, t-shirt, tank top, shorts, bathing suit, quick dry towel, toiletries, sunglasses, Kindle, and my journal. Oh, and I think I brought a rain jacket too. It was the perfect bag for traveling on a whim -- I didn’t pre-plan my itinerary so I wanted to stay mobile.
