TheCrazySmile is pure FUN & Creativity. Leather bags and accessories that have the TheCrazySmile logo originated from Imagination, are Created with passion and made to be Enjoyed!

How did TheCrazySmile start?
A few years ago I got in touch with leather crafting because I wanted a special saddle for a motorcycle I was building. As you can see on my website, this got out of hand. Now I am creating my own designs that are sometimes inspired by the wishes of my customers. If you want something special and you like my style, do not hesitate to contact me on info@thecrazysmile.com

Because I also like others to benefit from my investments, I share my knowledge, inspiration and resources on my website so anyone who wants to get started on this beautiful skill has somewhere to go. In the Netherlands I facilitate workshops, on request, for people that want to experience how much fun leather crafting is.

This blog is to document the things I create and to share my work and experiences with others. Doing that I hope to inspire others to start their own Imagination and creation process. If you do I hope that you will Enjoy it as much as I do.

When you are inspired but not planning to start creating something yourself, please contact me to see if I can create something for you.

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.” (Albert Einstein)

  1. Beste Jim,
    Eerst mijn complimenten voor je werk en je website. Super dat je zo veel interessants met de buitenwereld wil delen. Na een tassencursus bij het Leerlokaal ben ik verslingerd aan leer. Geef jij binnenkort nog workshops/cursussen m.b.t. leercreaties maken? En ik heb interesse in het maken van eigen stempels(diverse afmetingen). Weet jij hoe ik dit het beste kan aanpakken. Vriendelijke groet en fijne dag. Nancy

    • Dank voor je bericht en de complimenten! Ik ga waarschijnlijk binnenkort een paar workshops geven. Als je op Facebook zit kan je op de hoogte blijven door TheCrazySmile pagina te liken. Ik vertel je ook graag wat ik weet over stempels. Stuur maar een mail met je vragen naar jimdonline@hotmail.com. Kan ik ergens zien wat jij hebt gemaakt bij Het Leerlokaal?

      Groeten, Jim

  2. Hoi Jim,

    ik wil mijn vriendin graag een workshop tasmaken, geven voor haar verjaardag. Dus doe je nog aan workshops?
