Husband's Facebook comment leads to Birthday wallet surprise

If you are like me, you worry about your man's upcoming birthdays. What to give him this year?

An online hint from husband Jason provided the solution for wife Simone, a handmade, Sparrowhawk Leather wallet, emblazoned with his initials. Perfect. 

Jason was browsing for New Zealand Made products on Facebook and came across my Sparrowhawk Leather wallet post. He commented:
I know where to go to for my next wallet, beautiful work.

By chance, Jason's wife Simone, saw his comment. She immediately placed an online order for a Medium Brown Coin & Currency wallet, hand embossed with Jason's initials.

I saw Simone's surname on the order. It was too coincidental. I emailed Simone to ask if she was Jason's wife? Simone replied:
It is his birthday next week and I have been struggling to think of something he'd love...and then I saw his comment, so problem solved.

 I got to work and made Jason's wallet in a few days. I was so pleased, as the piece of hide that I cut for the cover responded really well when I hand dyed it. As is my custom, I packaged Jason's wallet in a gift box, put my dye and embossing trial piece in the box, and a note describing how Simone specified his initials and the colour, and my process for making the wallet.

When Jason received it, he sent me a message and photo straightaway!
Just got my new leather wallet WOW! absolutely beautiful, thank you so much!!


Simone sent me an email too;
Jason's wallet arrived yesterday, the look on his face was priceless. Thank you so much for this beautifully crafted gift!"
