Updated the gallery & finally added Nightscape's pictures. She is also posted in the "for sale" section of my website. I'm in no hurry to sell her...she's a cutie. ^_^


Went to Wal*Mart today looking for the new scented ponies. No such luck, so I decided to browse their craft section. I picked up a hemp bracelet kit. I've owned a few hemp bracelets & anklets, but I've never tried to make my own. They look quite complicated, however, it's actually SUPER easy! Kids could make them. ^_^



The top bracelet is one of my old ones. I didn't make it.
The one on the bottom is the one I made today. It uses half knots. I strung the blue/white porcelain beads on them...reminds me of Chinese pottery.


Here are the customs I'm working on. The one with the long black hair has two cacti with flowers as her symbol. The flowers are going to be darker & more detailed. I'm not finished with the painting yet. She is a gift for a lady whose name means "Cactus Flower" in Vietnamese.
The little one is her son...he's going to have a yellow & purple basketball jersey. Hmmmm...can you guess his favorite team?

Thank you! I love the dramatic color combo...the bright white base color against the pure black hair and the true red hoof mark.

Thanks! I just posted her new pictures with a symbol close-up. I love cacti too...I'm raising two small ones, but I think they're the non-flowering variety.

Re: Ponies

Thanks! I know Hasbro already has ponies with cacti, but this one's a little more realistic. ^_^
