I've been doin it for about a year as a part time thing. I do ok with it. But I also don't really push it a lot. Most of what I do is from refferals. You can sell quite a bit of it on ebay. Seats and panels turn a decent profit. Depending on what kind of lifestyle you are acustom to \, it might be tougjh to make a living at it. Although, being in amarilla you might help make ends meet with saddle and tack stuff too. Without trying, doing one project a week, I bring in about $500-600 a month.

Good luck

I'm not really interested in leather much.

However, I can tell you as a website developer, Whenever I speak to someone about starting a small business and selling their product on the web I usually tell them to start a yahoo store in addition to an ebay store. Yahoo will get you a domain, website and credit card processing. Then you can drive traffic to a specific location when networking.

You seem on the up and up with a good attitude.
Be careful goin' full time.
I have been lucky as a tattooer, but it was a LONG road.
My $.02?
Always work your side job until you can't afford to go to work any more.
Your stuff looks good, and I may actually be speaking with you next year.
Keep it up, and be good to your wife, she's gonna be your rock.
