Over the past few days, I’ve cut and sealed many pairs of bell boots…
Finished and shipped a few orders…
Made progress on the Potentially Never-Ending Project (aka the I Have Too Much Free Time and What Have I Gotten Myself INTO project)
Finally got started on the next batch of nerdy saddle pads…
And, despite my lack of shelf space, added a new pony to the herd. (ponies don’t take up as much room, right?? Right?!)
I think I just need to accept the fact that having multiple things in progress is just a part of my creative process. Either that or I’ve developed a much shorter attention span than I used to have.
February’s ended on a good note hobby-wise though… here’s to making more progress in March!

I’ve managed to get that cold I’ve been trying to avoid for months. I hate flu season, agh. 😛
I haven’t been in the mood for tack/sewing, but I did manage to finish up some printables I had on my PC for a while. These are some of my JAH (Just About Horses) magazines, scanned and miniaturized in Photoshop. I also threw a box catalog and a template for a magazine holder in there as well.
Because I am picky about mini printables, they all have their back covers included too:
Each one also has a spread for the inside, making them “readable” but not too thick. I put these together by running a glue stick along the fold.
To make the magazine holder, cut around the template and glue to the back of a piece of patterned/colored paper:
Score along the fold lines (I use a metal ruler and the back of an exacto blade to do this) and cut the entire thing out. Remember to cut the tabs on the bottom!
Fold it together and glue in place. I did cut one of the tabs off and shortened the longer ones here:
The box catalog was assembled like the magazines, but I glued the white sides of the paper together instead of just at the spine.
I LOVED these things and remember spending ages going through them, making wishlists.
Have fun and enjoy!

This week has been all about getting stuff finished and off the workbench. I got two show donations completed, the first for the Nags & Neddies Easter Extravaganza, which will be held in Australia this April:
The second is for Show for the Cure Live, which will be held in IL next month:
I am almost all caught up- it feels so good to be getting stuff done!
