A teacher pointed at me with a ruler and said "At the end of this ruler is an idiot." I got detention when I asked "Which end?"

I'm trying to get some other stuff cleared up right now while I'm contemplating my design. I'll have something up by the end of the month though.

Nah... not going to participate this time. I have too much to do and too little time and energy to get it done and I've been feeling like crap. So I'll pass on this one..... anyone thinking about the next one yet?

Here is mine. Little Tom Thumb kit, very very thin leather, I'm surprised I was able to get any tooling on it at all. Tiki is a quick scribble I made. And yes, i finished it--I have no pictures of it naked--I needed it to use immediately to cart around a spare set of batteries and a flash drive. I used the EcoFlo Highlighter and a caruaba cream. Reverse side is a "quilted" pattern with the seeder swivel knife cuts, but since I also used a camo tool, I'm not posting that side. Lace is goat.

Tools:
swivel knife
seeder
backgrounder
pear shader

Look at you go Cubby. You made a project and running out the door using it while I'm still trying to decide between cocoa and silver (they're so close in tone it's a hard decision, LOL). I guess I could try a TIKI on my Tom Thumb, but they are kinda monstrous looking little thingys. I could give it to someone for a gift I guess. I don't know how you did that great a job tooling that that thin leather, but it looks really cool.

LOL well truth be told... it hurt my feeling that I was out voted on the number of tools. But I did try but my tiki turned out looking like a demented China-man doll :oops:

Well, usually it is a dictatorship on what is going down, but we did put this one to a vote:)
Even if you tiki looks like a China doll...it is still very primitive and kind of the way it should be for a first tiki and I think at least you tried and where not afraid to show it anyhow!
So kudos to you for that!!!!Posted Image

Here is mine.


Awesome Job Winter Bear!!!!!!!!!
I have been to busy to start mine, but I do know what I want to do...I just have a few more days myself:)

Get some colour on it and call it done, be a shame to waste it, nothing wrong with a demented tiki, just don't paint it yellow Posted Image

LOL. Don't have yellow paint anyway. I might try it again before the time is up. We'll see.

Go on, get one done, you know ya want to. Plenty of time left, less typing and more tapping is all ya need to do.
Knock one out in no time, one evening. Think how good you'll feel when you've done it. You've got a piece of
leather there just screaming to have a tiki cut into it. That's all it's want to do, be something nice. Your not
really going to stop it's dream are you? Course not. Your'd not be that mean to it.

Feeling guilty yet or do I need to carry on Posted Image
