Ever since I was a small kid, a blank piece of paper and a pencil / pen have always had a special attraction to me.

I like the effect you put on the edges of each section with the curved tool. Makes it look extra nice :)

Made this prototype today. I drive a different vehicle almost every day and to different locations, so I needed to have my GPS visible and safe.
So now my Note 7 can sit on my wrist while I am driving.
I have a choice of popping the phone in and out of the case, or pull the case off the wrist strap - it is attached there with velcro.

I am very impressed with the quality of the detail when zooming all the way out! Here are two sets of photos - in each case the two photos were taken standing in exactly the same spot.

To think differently about getting leather soft:

LeatherLearn
There is not a single product that softens leather. Let me explain : Think of this in terms of the leather fibers – kind-of like the fingers of your two hands interlaced. When you dye the leather and while the leather fibers are limp, the leather is pliable. Same goes for getting the leather wet ...

The wristband mount for the phone is the beast!
It is very stable, even moving my arm to different positions on the wheel and operating the turn signals.

Did a new post with the pic of the wristband in action. Works like a charm.
I wish Google + would allow pics in comments....!

We mostly get take - out, but those times that we have eaten there, the service was good. This is not a MacDonalds, so the preparing of the food is a bit slower, but hand-made. The pizza is definitely the best pizza anywhere!
