Time sure does fly.

I’m a bit embarrassed to realize that it’s just about February, making it almost a year since my last post. Even more embarrassing, is to see the amount of dust sitting on my shelves and the few tack models I have staring at me from my desk. *sigh. I set aside a few works-in-progress, that I was having difficulty working on, only to get swept up in other things.

So, what have I been doing?

I’ve poured every free moment into training my little horse. My real one. And I’ve come to remember that feeling of over joy, as a seven-year-old little girl riding a horse for the first time. The passion, the love for horses, that gets buried under the years of ‘adult’ responsibilities, over thinking, and real life.

I also got sucked into a new endeavor. Hand painted stall signs.

I’ve been painting these for years, but now am offering them to the ‘public’. What started out as a gift now has me swamped with orders and wondering how on earth I’m going to get everything done. Should you be interested in checking them out, I’ve put up a Facebook page linked here:

Don’t worry; I have not stopped making tack. I’m hoping this long absence will help me take on a different perspective, and spark new ideas. Since sometimes we all just need a break.

Where did I go all summer? Well, see, I have this pony…

…and we started showing…

…and it seemed to suck up all my free time. But, we had a blast. Now, I'm back to the old routine and my pony's free to get fuzzy again. Only, I seemed to acquire yet another project…

…who likes to torture our other dog…

Really, he is a good puppy.

So, life has been crazy. But, I've been trying to finish up a bunch of projects, so stay tuned.
