DIY – Paint Your Own Brushes

DIY – Paint Your Own Brushes

It’s been a long time since I’ve done any kind of equestrian DIY kind of post, so I figured y’all were overdue for some craft action. Now though I’ve written a lot of DIY, I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m pretty half ass when it comes to detailed pictures and instructions. Often I will include important steps like, “Sew it all together.” Well folks, it’s a new year and I’m trying to be a better blogger. This…

I’m really not one to swoon over cutesy items, but I do appreciate a good hand made “thing”.  Miranda of Randamocity makes them, and they will make you smile every time you pick up your keys.  Literally. You can…

How to make an Equestrian Ribbon Quilt

How to make an Equestrian Ribbon Quilt

I’ve wanted one of these for a long time. I mean, you don’t even need to be a horse person to think that the quilt/wall hanging to the right is really, really pretty – not to mention creative!  If you haven’t seen or heard of one of these, it’s a quilt made entirely out of horse show satin ribbons.  I’ve done different kinds of horse showing all my life, and have secretly been lusting after one of these.  However, there…
