Say it in Inuit!

Inuit - Jutdlime pivdluarit ukiortame pivdluaritlo! (Merry Christmas!)

I thought this was cool since everyone is familiar with the whole North Pole thing. Tom is still using sand paper to get my surface smooth enough for the hand finish that will be used. He uses different grits of sandpaper. He starts with a rough sand paper called 120. He then uses smoother sandpaper until he gets to one called 400 grit. This gets me ready for the next step. He now begins to add details to my gown. These may be flowers, stars or various images carved or burned into the wood. Until next time, here are some Christmas gift suggestions:

To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect. - Oren Arnold


  1. I just love those holly leaves on your gown, Nick! They are just perfect.

  2. Inuit? Is that Eskimo speak? ((grin)) Nick is looking wonderful.
