My 9-year wedding anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks… crap… week-and-a-half. The modern material for year 9 is leather and the traditional is pottery or willow (so says Hallmark).
My wife is as excited as me when it comes to anticipating the Glowforge, but unlike me, she hasn’t been able to tell me exactly what kinds of things she wants to make with it.
I was thinking of getting a bunch of scraps of leather and possibly willow ply and making nice samples for her to be able to see and feel, maybe to spark some ideas for when we get the GF.
I just wish I knew if she was even interested in using leather. Between my uncertainty in her desire for these materials, and my hesitation because I’m essentially giving her a gift that she can’t use for three months or so, I’m not sure if this is the right way to go. Maybe I should just buy her a new purse?
