Spring Clouds

When I walked outside this morning, the first thing I noticed were these puffy, fluffy white clouds.
It was a beautiful sight!

Spring Pansies

Hi, everyone! Sorry about the lack of blogging lately. I was having technical issues, then a horse show in Arizona really put me behind. But now I'm back. :)
I'm not prepared for Easter this year. It just came too soon! When I saw these pansies at Albertson's, they called to me. At least I have this part of my regular Spring routine done! I'm so happy Spring is here!

The Shirt Fairy

Every January I head up a shirt and jacket order at the barn. It all started back when I was on my original "let's get classy, Saltaire Farm" rampage. Our 2013 logo was designed by one of the riders at the barn who just graduated with a graphics design degree from SLCC.
There were over 40 items ordered and I was feeling really rich after I cashed those checks- it was over $1300.00!

People are funny. It took an extra week to get all of the late orders in. It took 3 days after that for people to start asking if the shirts were in yet. These things take time! 2 weeks to get the shirts in and the screen printing done. Another week and a half for the embroidery guy, who has little kids and does this after work in his basement to get his part done. That's 5 1/2 weeks folks, which is a long time to wait if you're excited. And 12 years old.

But the wait is over! I organized everyone's order on my newly cleaned sewing room floor. It's amazing how useful a room becomes if you can actually walk on the floor.
Tomorrow I get to play Shirt Fairy at the barn! I'll be the most popular person there!

A Photo Collage

A girl who rode at the barn with us moved to Colorado last Spring. She got a hold of me last week and asked if I could make a collage of some favorite photos that I had taken of her and her horse. She is going to give it to our trainer as a gift. Here's the finished product:
I like how it turned out!
