Old skool, I’m in. She sends down a print and off and running we go. Here’s the parts, a borrowed vintage pattern from F. O. Baird several coats of spirit dyes, highlighter and some fancy poly coat I rock. I swear the finish is indestructible except with a grinder of course.

I’m getting the box readied for Patti Turon to work without pattern and custom finish it all into our newest creation. Stay tuned to @ADKArtsBoutique for all your updates ;)

Go Patti go!

This piece I am working on presently. I started out thinking making these flowers blue and wellll I went  another direction, red.

Is there ever enough time…. life’s so short. I apologize for my absence. I do love “WordPress” and would be much happier if I could post here daily and then share it all from here but that’s another scenario.

2014 in review @acrossleather

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,800 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
