Selling in Sheridan

Some days I build boots, some days I drive all the way to Wyoming to sell tools and supplies.

Inseaming

I inseamed these boots today. These are for a small lady; they don’t take nearly as much time to inseam as a big size 13!

Working hands

I finished my YouTube video for May and was proof-watching it. It’s funny–in real life, I’ve always thought my hands were ugly. I have fat stubby fingers, short unpolished nails, one deformed finger, the beginnings of arthritis in both pinkies, and I’m currently missing half a thumbnail because I smashed my thumb. But when I watch my hands in action they’re so beautiful!
**This post is just a teaser for the upcoming video AND an announcement that I have beautiful hands. The video will go live at 9am on Monday, May 21.**

…but the client decided he wanted a narrow round toe instead.
