  1. Butterfly belt

    There really are. It amazes me how some people on here are able to make things so 3-dimensional and lifelike. Thank you for the compliments!
  2. Butterfly belt

    Thank you, for all the wonderful comments; I greatly appreciate it. I still feel in awe of so many other’s work on here that I just hope that I can get to be 1/2 as good.
  3. First hired job and first belt. She wanted floral with butterflies and a splash of blue on the butterflies. Any critique is welcome, as I’m still fairly new.
  4. Gun scabbard

    Thanks! Yeah, it took a little while.
  5. Gun scabbard

    Thank you. I used 9 oz veg tan and fiebings dye and finished with resolene.
  6. Gun scabbard

    Thank you! He always perks up when I’m hammering away hoping that I am building something for him.
  7. Gun scabbard

    Well, I haven’t been on in a while. I made my husband this gun scabbard for Valentine’s Day. I thought it turned out well for my 1st one. Any critique would still be appreciated. I still have to get the rigging done.
  8. Quick barrettes

    I did use my pear shader. Maybe I need to be a little heavier handed, though? I’m always nervous that I am doing too much. Also I was able to find some hardwood dowels, so they will be a bit nicer, now.
  9. Quick barrettes

    No honestly, I really appreciate it. Boise is about 2 hrs away. I’ll definitely see if I can find someone and I will look into the link and go with my best option. This is fantastic!
  10. Quick barrettes

    Wow, that’s gorgeous!!! Love how you used the cow horn!
  11. Quick barrettes

    Unfortunately, I have no idea... I am not sure if there are any around, as the only lumber mill around here that I know about burned in the summer from a wildfire. I’ll have to ponder this and see if I can figure something out.
  12. Tooled flask

    Thank you for all the kind comments!
  13. I made these for all of my sisters-in-law for Christmas and think they turned out well. I’ve been contemplating the idea of selling some on Etsy to earn a little income, since I’m a stay at home mom. If anyone has any advice on selling or making your own business, I would greatly appreciate it.
  14. Made my first tooled flask. My husband requested one for his brother for a Christmas gift. I messed up in 1 spot on it but it still turned out ok. Any critique is appreciated.
  15. Lots of firsts

    Thank you! I emailed it to myself, so hopefully it works now.
