About Me

I’m Cicily, the founder and designer behind Creative Mountain Mama.

A former global finance professional, I transitioned into the role of stay-at-home mom in 2021. In 2023 I started the company to sell what I make, nestled in the mountains of Colorado. 

From high-stress institutional finance to sharing my life in the country - Welcome! Here, you'll find a blend of storefront delights, nourishing recipes, and inspiring podcasts to encourage you on your journey. 


I created this platform to reach others that needed encouragement on their journey like I did. I share stories of women who have been there before, give hope that it gets better, and press on.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11

I'm all about standing for traditional values and standing on wisdom. Whether your goal is to learn how to live more simply or just slow down, my hope is to inspire you to achieve those goals here

I'm here for those that resonate with seeking a connection to the land, family, and a simpler way of life.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16

We cherish the values of family, respect, and integrity. We have created a home where these virtues thrive, and where faith is foremost. I believe in the tradition of honoring husbands role as the leaders of the home, working hand in hand to build a strong foundation together. We prioritize the well-being of our family, ensuring they have access to good food, sunshine, and unconditional love. I approach my work and responsibilities with integrity, honesty, and a spirit of excellence.


Currently I focus on creating timeless, high-quality leather goods. However, my vision includes expanding my offerings to include a range of natural products, handwoven rugs and pillows, and native heirloom seeds. These additions will provide you with more choices to support a more meaningful lifestyle.

Although I aspire to carry these additional brands, I want to be transparent about my current stage. At this point, I am in the planning and exploration phase, working towards incorporating these products into the Creative Mountain Mama brand to provide you with more high quality goods. Your support and feedback are invaluable as I strive to make this vision a reality.

My vision is to grow my business by fulfilling orders quickly, expanding my product range, and sharing my story. Together, we can help preserve the tradition of self-sufficiency, sustainability, and craftsmanship, fostering a community that values these principles as much as I do.


My mission is to make my high-quality, handmade leather bags that you can’t find anywhere else. Through my products and content, I seek to inspire others to live out their faith, use the land, and pass down skills and knowledge through generations. I differentiate myself by offering unique, handcrafted goods that reflect my commitment to quality and sustainability. 

Why Handmade?

Working with leather by hand allows me to achieve a level of intricacy that cannot be mass-produced. I work in small batches ensuring careful attention to detail. Every step is meticulously made down to the last detail. When I'm cutting, carving, punching, and hand-stitching leather, no two pieces are exactly the same. This means that each bag you purchase will be unique to you, with brands and marks on each hide that cannot be replicated.

Each bag I make is hard work: hand-sketched, hand-carved, and hand-stitched using vegetable-tanned leather and, if you like, turquoise stone inlay. This combination of materials and techniques results in a product that stands out. 

Every piece I make is built to last you many years into the future. The craftsmanship and attention to detail ensure that your bag will withstand the test of time; something you can pass on. Handmade with love and care, these bags are more than just accessories.


Thank you for supporting this Creative Mountain Mama!
