Too many projects, so little time

I took some pictures before I got started working on stuff today and I thought I'd share them.

First up is the card case and notebook cover from my last post. They are stained and sealed, I just need to get them lined and put together.

And this is a shot of the current set of projects that I'm hoping to work on a bit today. On the left a belt and key fobs that need to be stained or dyed. On the right card cases and the tendrils journal, ready to be sewn and perched on top a belt that I need to finish stamping. In the back is garment leather that needs to be cut and made into card cases. Hopefully everything goes well today and I can at least get some of it done.

Current projects

These are a couple of my current projects, I got some pictures before I stained them and thought I'd share them here:

This is a notebook cover that I started before Christmas and I finally got around to working on it. The next steps will be staining and sealing it. I think I'll stain it saddle tan, but I haven't decided for sure.

This is a card case, and the stamp is a new one, I started playing around with it and got carried and here we are. The whole piece is done in the checkerboard and it will close with two straps that I also stamped to match. The next step on this one is to stain it, I'm thinking it needs to be a nice mahogany.
