remodel

Before and After

Before:


After!





The remodel is done, I'm moved back in, and I am so glad that it's finally over!  You can't see it, but just off screen to the right are my closet doors.  I have my halter and two bridles hanging on the handles, but that's not exactly what I had in mind for them.  Any suggestions for display?

I'm still plugging away on that website, but I'm going to try to get the tutorial ready to be proofed by my lovely test subjects.  Blog topics coming soon:  a bridle tutorial and an article (of sorts) about going buckle-free! When the tutorial has been proofed and corrected, I'm going to try to get it into a PDF.  Text-only it's four pages in Word, so you can imagine how long of a blog post that would be!

Almost There!

We're trimming out the room today, so I should be spending the evening and tomorrow morning moving back in! I'm so excited! It's just in time for class to start on Monday.  I also have a website to build that's due early next week, so I may not get a post in as frequently.  I will have time to respond to comments, though, so keep them coming!

Don't forget that the raffle ends on the 27th, and for those of you commenting as anonymous posters - please include a name of some sort so that I can identify you! There have only been a couple of comments without names, and I'd hate for someone who is interested in the raffle to miss out.


I Can't Take Much More of This!

Fortunately, I don't have to.  As of yesterday, the remodel is ALMOST DONE! We need to paint and put up trim, but I should be back in within a week or so.  I can't wait! I'm itching to work on tack again, especially the poor tutorial.

During the remodel, I've had my resins packed away neatly. Oddly enough, I missed them.  I couldn't stand it any longer and I had to pull the painted ones out.  A new face joined the herd, and I think that's what sparked it. I had to dress him up, of course, but nothing really fits him and I can't make him anything new yet.  Sigh.

The saddle and bridle are both old, easily a year each, and it shows.  The pad is newer, though, and I think it's officially "his" since it looks so nice on him!  I am really, really excited about getting some personal tack made.  My poor ponies are running around naked while everyone else's get clothes!  However, I can piece enough together for him that I might take some show photos today and upload them to IMEHA at some point.
