so I dug up a book of sailor jerry stencils at the shop a few weeks ago and I found a TON of inspiration for some new pieces!

here's the vintage flatware caddy:


and a close-up


and here's an art journal, I wanted to keep it for myself but you know how it is...


here's the inside, this used to be an old cash log book but I think it's much cooler and better served for poignant thoughts and introspective sketching


let me know what you think!

I love the flatware caddy!  Cute and retro, minus the kischiness.

And I have definitely felt the pain of not being able to keep a creation you love.  Coincidentally, I also know the guilt of keeping things that were supposed to be gifts. Wink

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

thanks! here's one of the books most tattoo shops use for reference http://www.superiortattoo.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=R109&utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=feed, there's a pink covered book & a blue covered book. I used a different book for my reference but they're all over amazon
