Live From the Tidy Workbench

(It only stayed this clean for a second or so…)

*has died of Spring Flu raised to the power of Spring Allergies*

Well, okay, not really, but it certainly feels like it! ?

As part of my micro business reboot, I’ve been working on cleaning up my workbench and moving most of my supplies into the basement. Anything I’m not planning on using in the next two weeks is going into hiding so I can keep my Muses focused.

As folks who have followed me know, I have a lot of art projects… but for now, I am concentrating on the resin casting (primarily the Fat Pony magnets). That means a bunch of stuff is moving to the basement since it won’t be used daily.

That’s not to say I won’t be plaster casting, or customizing Breyer Stablemates, or building model horse bases and fencing, or building random things from cardboard and paper… I just won’t be focusing on it.

Speaking of Fat Pony magnets…

The Big Orange Bash Donations

Big Orange Bash Donations 2019

I got this year’s donation herd of Fat Pony magnets for Big Orange Bash done at almost the last moment. Every year I swear I’ll get them in early and every year I overestimate… *facepalm*

But they got there safely and hopefully helped raise some funds for the Large Animal Clinic at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine!

BOB even got the tiny honor of having the very first Unicorn and Pegasus! (Well, okay, they got #002 because the #001 always stays with me now! ?)

Etsy Restocking

April Workbench Projects

I’ve begun the slow process of restocking my Etsy store!

For the moment I’m just slowly going through and relisting things that don’t need new photos. I’m tweaking the descriptions and pulling out the ‘free shipping’, but I’m also removing most of the customization options (for now).

If you are looking for a custom, please drop me a line on my Facebook page or Instagram! I’ll be posting custom slots there as time allows. ?

I’m hoping to have all of the old listings back up by the end of June, and a bunch of new ones to boot!

I’m also in the middle of working out selling some of the magnets via consignment… but that’s still in the works! ?
