So, once again, I tripped and fell face first off of the blogging wagon.
I promise I am going to try and get better at this (again).
I have been busy,busy, busy creating new things. In the works right now are many things, but at the top of the list are:
Several model horse-sized cross-stitch saddle pads.
A handful of custom painted model horses
Likewise, a handful of drastic model horse remodels/re-sculpts
Plus the usual random paper crafts and any other creative bug that bites me.
The studio organization has been an ongoing process. A couple of days ago my wonderful husband bought me a few things I'd been after - more shelving and more binders to better house my ever expanding horse reference library. Also a box of glue sticks to continue the reference book crusades. Setting up my reference pages is a bit of an art form itself. Perhaps I'll share what they look like one of these days.
Geez, I really need to start writing down what all I need to take pictures of. The ideas come and go, then it's "Ooo, something shiny!" and I'm off and away on another quest. LOL
Also in desperate need of an overhaul is my ArtFire store, as well as Nail Necklace site. Plus the still mostly vacant pages on my Studio site are constantly looming.
I have been pouring a lot of my time and energy into a fundraiser for a horse that I had sold to a woman in Australia last year. A couple of weeks ago, he suffered a gruesome eye injury. He was rushed to a top vet hospital where they did manage to save his eye it appears, but he has a long road to recovery ahead of him. The vet bill is currently over $7,000 and I've been trying to help with that.
Take a peek if you'd like, the fundraising campaign is at: Save Cazador's Eye
Cazador is a fantastic little horse and he was one of our beloved "kids" for 3 years before making the epic voyage "Down Under". I have felt so helpless since he was hurt, being on the other side of the world. I decided to set up the fundraiser and donate items from the Studio as "perks" for contributions.
Well, I guess that's enough of an update to, sort of, get me caught up here.
Until next time... (which will hopefully be SOON!)
