just a P.S.

I think I may have a few folks coming over from twitter, so I'd like to mention that I've done racing sets in minature in the past. All of the miniature racing sets that I have made were sold through the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft.

The Croup

No, I'm not talking about a horse's hindquarters. I'm talking about the illness. Munchkin got the croup last week from daycare as I found out on monday when I picked him up. Friday I had take him to the Drs because he has barely slept through the night in the last three or four weeks. Turns out he was having some severe pain from teething and his gums were bleeding. Poor guy can't catch a break!



So most of this week has been spent sleeping, for all of us. We are better today and munchkin went back to daycare. This has only served to make me even farther behind on everything.


I couldn't possibly blog this week without mentioning the Kentucky Derby Festival! One of these years I'm going to make it to some of the events or more importantly, I'm going to find someone that will take me to the Derby itself in style! ( no more infield for me! LOL!!) This is such a wonderful and vibrant time here in Louisville! I LOVE derby Week.. LOVE IT!!


Ok, that said.......


Above is the Native Arabian Halter in Progress. I had to start over on the weaving because I flubbed up a piece of it on the other weaving that I had. I'm happy to say that all of the end tassels are on now and it's onto making the "doo dads" up the sides.

Wham! Wham! WHAM!

That is the sound of my head hitting my workspace. I've been banging my head against some ideas for the NAN auction Donation and I haven't gotten a lot done. I have ONE Halter done.. I thought I'd be farther along by now but life just hasn't worked out that way. We've just been terribly busy - and tired.

Knock wood, we've been healthy though!

Here are some sneak peeks of the halter that I have finished....

Finally Well!

My Whole Family is FINALLY well! thank goodness! I was able to work out every day this week so far which has been wonderful because it co-incided with the beautiful weather that we've been having here.. (allergies aside of course)

I have my first part of my North American Model Horse Nationals Donation finished! It's a silver arabian show halter with real, hand made silver conchos and a thin thin hand made silver plate across the nose. There will be a sneak peak of this on the website coming soon. :-)

Onto the next part of my donation where I will be making my own, hand made, real silver jump rings...hehehehe
