Enter to win a Leather Pouch by LovejoyCreations!

I have always loved the smell of real leather. It has a smell like no other. I received a leather pouch with the most beautiful scene of owls on it, all hand tooled by Brenda of Lovejoycreations. The work is phenomenal! You can tell there is so much love and care put into the piece with such great details. There is even a couple of little acorns on the back of the pouch! Here is a photo, but my camera doesn't take quality pictures, but I still wanted you all to see my leather pouch:
Lovejoycreations is a husband and wife team, John and Brenda, that make custom, hand tooled leather purses, clutches, wallets, belts and scrapbook albums. They also take custom orders! Brenda started drawing at a very young age, her parents encouraged her by giving her drawing pads, pencils and erasers. While in junior high Brenda started selling her drawings to classmates, some still have the drawings to this day. In high school she sold oil paintings, and it was there that her art teacher taught her that you must draw and draw well. It was after high school that she was introduced to leather works. Brenda went onto other things until three years ago when she enrolled in a leather works class, it was the start of Lovejoycreations.

Lovejoycreations has items available for purchase on Etsy and Artfire. You can also find them on Facebook and sending tweets through Twitter. Lovejoycreations has also been kind enough to offer a leather pouch to one of my readers!
