Jordan & Jay
Jordan has been a good friend of Sandast & when she wanted us to make a bag for Jay's engagement gift, we were very happy for her. It is when she told me the story of Jay & her.... we felt the need & were determined to make this bag even more so special.
Both Jordan & Jay have had quite a bumpy road before their fate or path finally crossed. Hearing their story & history was very moving & touching.
From what Jordan had told me about Jay, Jay sounded like your typical Southern Gentleman. A man who walks the talk & believes in old Chivalry. Jordan wanted to tell Jay that she loves Jay for who he is & that they are in a team together. So we had inscribed a special message to him on his Shoulder pad.
Life is a journey & so is the marriage. Living in Los Angeles, we are blessed with the beautiful weather & blue skies, but even in Los Angeles, we have a storm occasionally. I believe "an occasional storm" is even welcoming to appreciate the sunny days & same logic can be applied in a relationship.
So We've come up with this quote.
"Our Voyage together will hit storms occasionally, but together we will weather any storm to reach our home....a Paradise".
It must be a coincidence. But as I was working on Jordan & Jay's duffle, I had just started the mural on our Studio. Although I knew what I wanted to paint for the 1st phase (Journey), I wasn't sure how to transform it to the final phase & this bag brought an inspiration.... It is called "Paradise".
Jordan & Jay, Thank you very much for your wonderful support & friendship. We are counting our days for our family trip to South Florida for our Cigar & Whiskey on your boat!
Be Well & Will see you soon!
