Finally. My arthritic hands can attest that I have braided a set of reins for each of my grandchildren with the completion of this set for Reagan. And don’t forget, I squeezed a set in there for Tess! I’ve also told Megan I’d make a set for her, but I may not get to it…
My little Fire King mug was damaged by going through the dishwasher. These alcohol inks are hand wash only… so I removed what was left and started over. Aspen trees were on this before… and I love the look. My big, warm your hands in the morning, mug was also ruined. It took a razor…
After all my work on the studio, it’s just not available in the winter. A few small electric heaters and a wood cook stove still take time to warm it up. Supplies that can freeze just can’t be left there. Sitting down to work on a project for only half an hour here and there…
I’ve been playing… if you’re interested, leave me a comment and I can get back to you with the details. I’m not sure I’m quite brave enough for an Etsy shop. What do you think? Details in the comments.

Cold and snow has arrived and I spent a large part of the day simply inside… working on some Christmas presents. While I can’t share pictures of those… I did take a bit to work on my switch plates for my bathroom. I made this one a while back. Yes, my switch plates are sideways….
A new favorite mug. The picture doesn’t do it justice… there’s ribbons of copper highlighting the forest colors… Yup. I like this one! What colors would you want together on a mug?
Don’t know if I’m done with them or not… but it was better than scrolling through Facebook!
Not quite finished with this one…
Well, he’s kinda cute! I’m trying to come up with some donations for our Library Silent Auction. This little trinket tray is the first.
Met with some of the nicest ladies today in order to make journals. The Friends of the Ten Sleep Library upcycle journals from old books as a fundraiser. We take donated, unwanted books, cut them apart, and save a few pages. Then we add assorted papers cut to size. We have boxes of donated scrapbooking…
I wanted to share some of my fun little posters I’ve been making lately. I kind of started playing around because we had talked about a new sticker at the library to give to people who donate. I’ve been a fan of the national park posters… or vintage travel posters. These balsamroot flowers weren’t quite…
