A Round Tote

June 27, 2019

It has been two full months of weekly new releases and this one wraps it up!

I'm eager to get back to refining the D|D Collection.

I was recently asked the purpose of making a new design each week for these last two months. The question was sincere and contextually inquiring about how this endeavor is affecting/building the brand overall. I was halted. Quite sincerely, my thoughts about it hadn't gone that direction.

During my flight home from leather school, I read the book E-Myth by Michael Gerber and something he talks about for business owners is discerning the seasons of growing a business. What he meant was that some seasons require you to operate as an Entrepreneur, others as a Manager and others as a Technician; all catering to the "need of the hour."

As I've pondered a more full answer to the question and given the reality of a more weighty personal life, my reply today would simply be that I was making with the most specific agenda; related to life and not business even while mine are intertwined. I was releasing what's inside of me in the most healthy defiance of non-controllables all around me. I was in a season of just being an artist.



T h e   A r o u n d   T o t e

For a season

that feels blind

and you can only 

feel  your way around.


For a season of 360's

where there's clarity

all the way around.


For a problem-solving season

bringing fresh perspective;

a new angle,

a right angle,

with a curve.


For a season 

when you feel like

a square peg

"fitting" into a round hole.



peace for the season

comes from 

a season-less piece.

Just Go Create

"To keep going, is to believe that there is always an invitation, is a truly creative act... There's sort of a healthy defiance involved. A hoping against hope. God continues to use  creation, creativity, and the arts to point to and unlock hope, mystery, beauty, and love. An open invitation for us all."

I’ve made the hard decision to close CHC.

My vision to awaken the beauty in people through creating beautiful products and experiences remains in tact; CHC is simply no longer the vehicle to my vision. My depth of gratitude for your support (every step of the way) is inexpressible.
