Mine is made from cowhide, too.
You misspelled “anal”
Anel is actually the name of the lesser-known patron saint of Anal Activities (because the saint didn’t just sex, but ‘lingus and all the rest – it was kind of his battle cry).
I thought Little Ricky Santorum was the saint of all that!
I THOUGHT ANEL MEANT IT DIDN’T GO IN THE WALLET . . .
If you open the whole thing and spread it out wide (…) it says I WUV ANEL SAX
I keep staring at this, searching for the “G” that is obviously hidden within this (actually very pretty) handmade work.
It’s in that labia flower somewhere…
Flower? I thought that was a hemorrhoid.
Maybe you shouldn’t google ‘anal rose’.
Well, I DID, because that’s how we do it around here at Regretsy. I wasn’t treated to a screenful of anuses, though, sadly. I found one with a sort of hernia situation going on (damnear killed’m!) but this… this my friends is horrifying. A decade old anal wart had taken over and sealed most of dude’s buttcrack, and turned cancerous, just to add injury to insult. Yoiks.
…so here it is:
P.S. I totally LOVE their vintage Steampunk Octopus wallet, also for sale in the shop.
oh man, i thought you were kidding! but it is totally there. i should never have doubted an FJL’s eyesight.
Not a “C H” to precede those four letters?
That took me WAY too long to understand. Once I got it, I chuckled.
That’s my rap name… “Anel G”
Just when I thought I was finally broken up with etsy. I think their stuff is beautiful.
I’d poop in that.
I hope it’s waterproof. Nothing worse than Anel leakage.
This is why as a leather worker I hate making things with names on them, all those hours of work overshadowed by one missing letter. . .
Lol. I used to go around saying i was a leather worker, too, until someone pointed out it’s safer to say leathercrafter ^^ Leather worker is…something else Unless of course you’re both. Best marketing ever!
I’ve always heard them used interchangeably, but I’m from the middle of nowhere so I think that just tells you how far out of the loop we are here.
This sure would have ME clutching my purse…..
BA DUM BUMP
I would be so tempted to ask her if she’ll correct the spelling at no extra charge . . .
o/~ …midnight fantasy…o/~
Seriously, though, I do know an Anelle. Still, I’d never want to have that emblazoned on a purse/whatever.
Unless, you know… I’m an under-employed hooker.
So $175 bucks is the going rate for that these days?
Depends on what part of town you’re in, I’d imagine.
I don’t wanna get anel here, but …
Please someone request a goatse custom purse. How awesome would it be to stuff things into your Regretsy-embossed goatse wallet?
Glad I saw this. I was just about to recommend that the artisan add a hand on either side of the rose and, lo, would some FLJ snap it up in a heartbeat.
I think this is the perfect solution, as I have been looking for the appropriate repository for my funds. Funds that I have specially allocated for the distinct purpose of purchasing shocking amounts of “Astroglide” and Eva Peron butt plugs. I hate for my monies to co-mingle…how embarrassing that would be!
If those butt plugs have as much bling attached to them as she had, somebody’s going to be crying for her.
Ooooh, I think we need some of those coin purses — you know, the rubbery plastic ones that you squeeze on the sides and they gape open? With goatse hands and a keychain. Perfect! Damn, now I really want to own one of these.
beige on the outside with a red satin lining!
Perhaps “Anel” is her name… her very unfortunate name…
I’m not crazy about it either. I’d much prefer “Colonel Angus.”
You don’t like “Anel Angus”? From my experience, Colonel Angus always overstays his welcome, and you have to tap him on the head.
I guess I could give Anel Angus a try the next time he’s headed down South.
You just HAD to put up a riff on “anal” the day I’m recovering from a colonoscopy….
This day should be different from all the others just because you paid to have several feet of hose jammed up your ass?
…by a doctor.
I think you may be confusing a colonoscopy with colonic irrigation.
It was a camera. Vagrarian, will this be a porno?
There ARE photos. And the GI doc was seriously dishy. During the pre-procedure stuff, I was amused to see my heart rate rising every time he was in the room. I console myself by thinking that a seriously hot guy wanted to get in my pants…although maybe not in a way that I’d prefer.
You are priceless.
What, you joined Dr. Jellyfinger’s Fishing Club and you think you’re entitled to a day off of patootie here?
There was an adventure; I totally snapped out of the anesthesia during the procedure. Zero to sixty, from totally out to fully lucid and awake in a moment. While having the camera up my butt. Doc assured me that I was in the office and having a colonoscopy, I guess in case I was confused; I just looked at him and said, “Well, I hope so, that’s what I came here for.” They were almost done anyway, so I just put up with it. No sense in doping me back up.
Doc later said he’d never seen anyone snap out of it like that, asked me how it felt. “Like I laid down for a nap and woke up being date-raped,” I said. I don’t think he knew how to respond to that.
Clean bill of health, btw. I came home, had an early lunch, and slept from 11 to 4.
That’s got to be my worst fear ever.. I’m glad it wasn’t major surgery you were waking up from.
I woke up right in the middle of my total knee replacement. They were banging and shoving stuff around, and it was really interesting. Except they were horrified I woke up and knocked me out again, even though I begged them to let me stay awake — I would have really enjoyed finding out what they were doing while they were doing it! Yes, I’m a little strange, but it was still really fun!
I’m with you WahWah, I’d have loved to watch that! When I had two root canals done the monitor of the zoomed up view – for the assistant to see I guess, was just close enough to be eye strain worthy of watching out of my peripheral vision, plus I was on nitrous, so that made everything that much more fun! LOL
I woke up about halfway through and got into watching the screen. They realized I was following what was going on when the doc bypassed a funny looking bit and I said, “Hey, back it up a minute. I think I saw a lesion”
I was right.
Now, in my defense, I’m a former scientist and like interesting images. I also watch the screen when doc’s inject cortisone into my hips. It’s cool to watch the solution curl around the femur head.
Anyway, I was also feeling no pain. Those drugs are great!
P.S. Everything was benign.
I love that you caught them on the lesion thing, and THAT’S what made them realize you were awake; I bet you scared the bejesus out of them! I’m also one of those weirdos who likes seeing that kind of stuff, it’s pretty cool!
Sometimes people wake up, or are not quite awake and freak out that they don’t know where they are or what the hell is going on, and with pressure up your butt that would be a bad time to not remember where you are!
Oh, and I laughed so hard about what you told the doctor, great stuff!
Aren’t the drugs great??
Tragically, it’s a name:
For when you really hate your baby, or are being really ironic about their conception.
It also means “Ring”, from the Latin “ānellus”, leading back to an “ass”ortment of unfortunate Goatse jokes.
See, now, your minds is in the gutter as usual (I only know because I’m down here too)… butt <–haha if you do a little google research, it will tell you..
The Hawaiian name Anel means – a short form of Anela…and…The Hawaiian name Anela means – This is the Hawaiian form of the English name Angel.
Now, don't we all feel bad? No?
….this only makes me stop complaining about the given name my parents gave me (not telling)… it could have been far worse. I picture me on the playgrounds and think how situations that were awful would have be sooo much worse if I had been a girl (or boy) named Anel. <>
(…that’s a shudder in between those two )
That’s how Canadians spell anal, isn’t it? Like “colour” instead of color. Bah….damned foreigners.
I believe the correct Canadian spelling is Eh-nel.
No its anbeaverel – the beaver is silent.
Thank goodness for that.
THANK GOD my parents know how to spell.
Just thank God you weren’t born in Hawaii. Because then if your parents could spell, you’d be Anel for sure.
“Anel” is indeed a name. I have a Dominican student with that name. It’s pronounced ah-NELL and as far as I know she’s never been teased about it. I think it must be at least not-unheard-of in Spanish-speaking Dominican families.
Do you know if it also comes in pouch-style? Only because it would be perfect for carrying around my Anel Beads.
Yes, this needs to come in a drawstring model.
I think that flower is being a little inappropriate to that cross. Is it possible to give a sleazy Christian Side Hug(TM)?
Who Would Jesus Do?
And How Would He Do It?
If you squint and tilt your head at just the right angle, the halo around the cross could almost be a G. . .
Ok, no. I was trying, but no. Is there a regretsy fail whale? I’m still learning my way around here.
What the hell is wrong with her pinky?!?!
Probably leather dye.
Oh. That’s no where near as much fun as anel.
Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see.
Looks like they bought one of these kits and added a custom design.
Don’t sell those kits short.
1. They’re expensive as fuck (unless you have a premium membership or have a wholesaler license)
2. I’ve looked at the items in the seller’s shop and they are not some hide pounder from summer camp. This is a talented artist. There’s quite a bit of skill involved in leathercraft.
A lot of leather workers use those kits to start out because everything is pre-cut and it takes the guess work out of cutting patterns from sides of leather. Trust me, it’s a pain in the ass. I have a side of leather in my new workshop right now and it isn’t small or cooperative. So unless you have the table space to lay the thing out and cut, you’re stuck. Not to mention the extra tools (which are expensive) you need to punch stitching holes, setting rivets, etc.
I think every last one of us leather workers have used a Tandy kit at some point or another before taking the plunge and spending $100-200 on a leather side and a few hundred more for the tools.
lol @ “hide pounder from summer camp”
In the late ’60s, Tandy was THE thing to do as a hobby (they had a store in Manhattan, but I never went to it; too young—the store was separate from Radio Shack, their sister/brother company). Several siblings did the kits and I made a belt and a small wallet. I remember the basic carving and tooling. It was a lot of fun, but I hated how stiff the leather was (which was necessary for the carving, I’m sure).
I totally agree on both counts, there’s definitely no shame in using a kit from Tandy. Even now I still will get a kit if I need a specific interior in a hurry or if I want to see how something goes together.
Hell, a couple of months ago, they had 8oz flask kits on sale for $10. And I picked up a few to tide me over before I could afford to buy a side of leather and tools.
Damn. I just ordered a catalogue and started wanting all sorts of tools and accoutrements and I have no room or time to do this stuff!
Mugsy, that’s why I have an entire room all to myself here. Myself and all of my many, many crafts.
It’s a good thing I don’t have a garage. Or a yard.
Mugsy, here’s a quick tip. Get a business license. It’s free and you just need to make sure you file No Tax every year with your state (NY does it online). Then you can contact Tandy (you can sign up on their site in the wholesale section) and they will give you a wholesale account number and then everything will be less than half the price.
Rana, I’m with ya. I now have a room I made into a workshop. My father built a solid 8′x36″ table for me to work. Sucks that my sister had to die, but at least her room won’t become the next storage area for my mom’s hoarded yarn and pattern books.
Rana: I have a whole apartment to myself, but it’s already cluttered and I’m always finding new crafts (or more of what I know to do).
Pearlhaertgtr: Thanks for the info and I know you mean well, but you’re being an enabler!!
Mugsy, don’t speak enabler to me. I have a habit of surfing the internet seeing something cool and then researching EVERYTHING and watching EVERY youtube video about it. Then I go and buy supplies (not cheap beginner stuff, no), figure out how to do it, and move on to the next. I atleast stuck with the leather. I am now also obsessed with woodcarving/whittling.
Pearl, I’m soooo glad to know I’m not the only one who does this! Totally pissed my parents off when I was a kid…I took a class on faceting gemstones, paid $1350ish to get myself an ok used one, that was about 4 years ago, and I have only used it once…granted I’m waiting for some lazy ass to drill a hole in the damn table for the drainage tube -why I can’t use it…but still; my electric guitar from high school, 9 or 10 yrs ago, is still sitting in the living room…
From Latin ānellus (“finger ring”).
anel m (oblique plural anels, nominative singular anels, nominative plural anel)
ring (small metal object)
So I see the ring. Where’s the goatse?
You deserve the Regretsy comment of the day!
So… It’s an everyday reminder that “saddlebacking” technically lets you maintain that abstinence pledge?
I like how the seller asks if there is an idea or picture you would like tooled into the leather. I wonder if they would do Nyan cat?
At least it’s not a tattoo.
why is the only takeaway I get from this is the fact that I lost my virginity to that song in the very late 70s
Such an unfortunate choice for an example of their work! My 81 yo father was squinting at the monitor saying “anel? anel? what? What’s that supposed to be?”I told him I thought it was supposed to be “angel” and he just shook his head. Isn’t often he’s speachless…
But he wasn’t that surprised after seeing the map of smearope… which he quite enjoyed.
I hate it when leather workers misspell “anal.”
I guess when you carry that you avoid the biblical quote “Get thee behind me, Satan?”
Ooooooh – a quick look through Phabulous Phil’s Handmade Custom Carved Leather Purses, Wallets & Belts shop (I wonder what it is he sells there?)reveals quite a few words of mystery. There’s a pheasant belt dedicated to AWA and a truly glorious hacienda wallet made out to AJJI.
I’m guessing ANEL stands for Alice’s Non Existent Labia or we could stick with Phil’s hacienda theme and go for Associação Nacional das Empresas Lutuosas.
Any further fun with acronyms people?
That’s really too bad, as it is a very pretty wallet. Oh well. If they can make me one that says “Bad Motherfucker” I’ll be all over it.
I just realized that it spells A-N-T-E-L and believe this wallet is celebrating Uruguay’s government-owned telecommunications company! After all, isn’t the rose the symbol of telecommunications?
The last time I paid $175 for anal I was high on coke in Boca Raton
i like the “Two to three weeks to create and ships USPS 2-3 day priority mail; will ship worldwide with help from the buyer.”
please rush my anal purse…only priority will do, but please take 2-3 weeks to make it. but when you are done…. i need it now!
could you please ship it in a box made from old boats?
At least we know These Are handmade. NO machine would fuck up “Angel” or “Anal”.
“Yeah, I named her Anellee, but I’m probably going to just call her “Anel” for short.”
the nice man [or woman] responding to my inquiry.
i guess 3 of you guys have also been asking.
Too bad about the Anel thing, because the handbag is pretty dang gorgeous.
Haha, yeah, I asked her last night and had the same response. Although I’ve never heard of the name Anel….
Actually, Anel is a female Latin name, crafter is either from South Mexico or South America (or Texas ) or learned the trade there.
This shop is fabulous. I wish I had $200 to blow on a leather wallet. http://www.etsy.com/listing/90105653/leather-trifold-filigree-skull
God DAMN it! Why did you show me this wallet??? I was saving that money for something for ME and now I spent it on a GIFT for my HUSBAND. You BASTARD!
I love hand-tooled leather and if you look at the rest of the shop this person is an artist. Not a speller, but certainly an artist!
They updated the description “This one gives an example of personalising with a womans name “Anel”…(not Angel!!) ”
The cross makes me think it was spelled wrong.
Assuming its pronounced Uh-nell..
Man I want that skull wallet and octupus wallet..
It’s a very common name in South Africa which is pronounced ah-NEL.
I don’t see what’s wrong with this. If it is actually custom made, then they are very pretty and well done. Anel is someone’s name here I believe, so I’m not sure what’s regretsian about this. I’m expecting a lot of thumbs-down for my reasonability (GASP). But I actually like this guy’s stuff!
Actually, Anel is a famale name here too, and (if the crafter actually meant it to say “anel” and not “angel”) I think it’s pretty good!
Actually, it seems she really did meant it to be “Anel”, she added that to the text.
