Ostrich Hides

When I was in Colorado I was talking with Laurie about some of the things I have made out of the ostrich hides and how I am going to try to make Lynny a purse for Christmas so I thought I would put some pictures up for you guys to see them.  I'm not sure who has seen these or not...
This is the scripture case that I made for TJ before he left for his mission.  It has some stains on it from when they were in their accident after their wedding so it doesn't look all that great right now.
This is a little book cover that I made.

I also tried making some slippers a few years back but that was a huge disaster.  I stopped after one.  I would put a picture of that on here but it is back in Indiana.  I REALLY hope this purse for Lynny will turn out.  Knock on wood for me!

Rafting Pics

These are before we hit the river
This is the boat I was in for the trip
My friend Tyler and the type of boat he was in
Self picture and an example of how you went to the bathroom...

Some of the rapid we did.  They don't look as bad in the pictures
If you can look hard enough you can see me in my little blue boat going through these rapids

After the take-out

Before and After

So I have always wanted to grow my beard out for a month just to see what it would look like.  I actually was a little shy of a month when I ended up cutting it (I cut it for a job interview that I don't think I'll be getting...)  I thought I would post the before and after pictures for yall to see.
I actually liked the way it looked on me!  What do you guys think?  Its actually kind of hard to see it in the picture.  I already know moms answer =)

I also decided to just chop it all off, hair on the head, hair on the face...

When I get a chance I will also post pictures from the colorado trip and from my rafting trip...
