And... we're waiting.......

This is my latest double bridle. IT is for a "lord of the ring" resin sculpted by Jennifer Reid. I love this resin. I wish I had many more of them but they are expensive to get a hold of..

As of today, I have not yet heard any further news about the opportunity with a national museum. I'm really hoping it comes through though so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. The person that I'm talking with over there is SO VERY nice and really has good energy.. so I'm hoping that it works out.

The last week and a half has been horrible health wise. I've had headaches more days than not, and I think that the anti-biotic I'm taking is messing with my digestive system. My neck has been exceptionally "spazzy" too. I think it's the chair I'm using in my studio. It's too tall so I'm doing a lot of neck craning. I need to find a new chair - as soon as I'm friggin well enough to go looking for one.

I'm onto making a saddle to match the last two double bridles. Each time I make a saddle I end up re-designing my patterns to make them better. This of course eats up time but I think it's worth it in the end.

Things are looking so much brighter

The Opportunity that I illuded to previously is going well. I do not want to Jinx it by revealing it before it actually happens. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I'm just thrilled to be considered for it!

The saddle that I re-vamped turned out really well. I took a week and fixed just about everything that I didn't like about it. There are one or two things that I wish were better on it but then I think that every artist feels that way about their work.

Creative flow

There was MUCHO Creative flow in the
Studio this past weekend. IT was quite wonderful! I went to the Cherokee Art
Fair (Louisville, KY) this past weekend and as usual I was inspired by all of
the art that I saw there. One of these days I'm going to have enough inventory
to actually be able to have a booth at an art fair.. Although I have to say that
I'm glad I don't - because this means that most of what I have sells.


I'm tweaking the oak leaf and acorn set
that I received back from the Museum. It is coming along rather well if I do say
so myself.  I do not know if the hobby folks will like it but I'm very
pleased with it.
