    It shows both pride and confidence in your product; without being 'loud' about it.

    i am not as active in instagram ... so many of my straps doesn't make it when i sent them to USA... i've sent to a customer 3 times and he said he is not receive them... it might be Porch Pirate.. i have no idea.. i just loosing to much money lately in postal and production,,, not to mention some that want their money back because they are not satisfied with my handmade strap... i gave them refund, let them keep the straps and called it a day... (some said/complained my straps are to expensive.. i know they are.. but they agree with the pricing and expense before i took their order )...

    i have a couple of straps to finish and after that i will take a long break and focus on my daughter birth...
    well, it was a great run and i always grateful for the blessings...

    Well we know and like your straps and they are, without exception, the most comfortable thing I have ever put a watch on.
    I'd Schwarzkopf it daily, except I couldn't be bothered with the inevitable explanations...

    Actually it was pool, but it didn't rhyme as well.

    Yes, thatís the one. It was very good. Beautiful place, service that would be difficult to fault and the food and wines were gorgeous (I had the seven course menu with five wines and cheese and port after). And the breakfast was beautiful too! It would be great to go back in late spring or summer when the gardens are fruiting and blooming.

    Right, when things settle down so.
    I'm sorted and so not buying any more watches.

    Yes, iyonk, your family is more important than my watch strap. Have fun being a dad and let me know when you're ready to start making straps. Seriously, no rush. Take the time to enjoy being a family.
    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.
