Happy New Year and new eBay stuff

First off, I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year! We're at home, did absolutely nothing but eat a nice dinner(little smokies in BBQ sauce, quite tasty!) and now I'm turning in before midnight. I'm such a party animal.

But before that, here's what I've been working on and selling lately!

First is a bareback pad and bitless bridle set, made for the North Light Donkey mold. I forgot to update my blog when I posted it to eBay, so it is already sold, but I thought I'd show it off anyway:

I will do another similar set around Valentine's Day, for a different model.

Next is a custom order, my customer is getting one of Susan "Pitbullmom" Tonielli's famous "purple pony" customs, and wanted a blue saddle for him to wear. This was the end result, I am very pleased with how it came out:

I still have a bit of blue leather left over, so I will be doing another for eBay in the future.

And last but not least are my latest Swarovski crystal-crusted creations, click on the images to go to the auctions:

A browband in peridot colored crystals(meant to liven up an existing bridle):

And a light or sport breed foal presentation halter, made for Breyer's "Ashley" mold, done with light siam colored crystals:

That's all for now, again, Happy New Year, everyone! See you in 2008!

Something else that's new for me this week: halter plates with Swarovski crystals!

Store, new eBay items

I've finally opened an eBay store, slowly but surely getting new stuff as well as previous unsold items up. The logo was made using Photoshop Elements 3(wish they'd let us use bigger logos, but I'm pleased with how it turned out!)

Also a couple of new bareback pads are up(no bridles with these, click on the images to go to the auctions):

Turquoise with black girth, made for medium Traditionals like Lady Phase(SOLD!):

Leopard print with brown girth, made for large Traditionals like the Palouse Horse(I love this pattern! But it's out of scale for leopard spots, so I just call it "clouded leopard"...)

Also up is yet another collaborative effort between me and my sister(again, click on the photo to go to the auction):

I repositioned the head on the Breyer beagle and resculpted the neck, then my sister painted him in pastels and acrylics to classic Beagle tri-color.

In other news I got my copy of "Historic Vehicles in Miniature: The Genius of Ivan Collins" by Ron Brentano today(at a terrific price, too, $8.00 total including shipping! Thank you Hamilton Books!) and I have to say I am floored by these amazing miniatures. It sure makes me want to get some plans and start building some vehicles for my future harness entries!
