Got My Craft On (Again)

You are probably tired of reading this, but again, it's too damn cold to ride. I didn't leave the house on Sunday, and only went out to the barn on Monday night because I had to see if Cisco would fit into a 72" Horseware blanket I found on a great sale (he didn't).

My fingers were frozen while bringing both horses in and I had forgotten to grab my neck warmer so I couldn't feel my face, and the overhead door to bring horses in and out of the barn wasn't working. It wasn't supposed to be that cold out, only -20, but man, it felt way colder. When I left the barn, within a mile my car registered -31, which was a full 10 degrees colder than it registered when I got home in the city.

But since I was out, the horses got a chance to move around in the arena. Phantom must be coming into heat because she peed in the barn aisle, which she almost never does, and had absolutely no patience for Cisco. Full on PMS rage towards him. Mind you, I'm pretty sure he deserved most of it.

While I was home all day Sunday I started a couple of crafty things. I didn't work on Tuesday until later in the day so I finished it all off in the morning while trying to dodge fresh piles of cat puke since my kitty apparently ate something that didn't agree with him.

I've taken a table at the spring tack sale in a couple of weeks. I'm mostly going to be taking tack but I'm going to share a craft table with a friend. So I did up a couple more of these make-up bags.

This one is going into my drawer at work. Not that I expect it to stop anyone. (Which isn't an issue really, I just need to tidy my drawer.)

This was inspired by something I saw on someone else's blog recently. I'm broke, so I used shirts I already own. If you look closely you can probably see the stain right underneath the logo.

I think I really like this. The horse is in a pearlized vinyl that changes colours in different lights. The lettering was supposed to be slightly to the left to start under the front foot - oops. Those who ride with me can expect to see this logo all over my riding clothes going forward. Mostly in glitter.

If this cold continues I might end up with a whole new wardrobe!

    1. Thanks! I've been playing with a couple of versions of it, but I'm pretty sure this is going to be the one.

  2. That last logo is beautiful!!!

    1. I hope it looks just as good bigger and in glitter!

  3. The logo is lovely. I like the bags as well.
