I’m not really one for New Years resolutions, but I really would like to be blogging more. I’d love to get to a point where I’m posting a few times a month, instead of the current sorry state of a few times a year.
It’s not that I haven’t been active in the hobby- I’ve been showing, customizing, and following my favorite hobby blogs. I have things to share… I just need to share them.
Last night I snuck in a bit of customizing amidst the holiday busyness. Erin had just given me a stupendous unicorn mug and I was very pleased to be drinking my evening tea out of it while building a neck for my next performance horse.
Isn’t the mug delightful? It’s a stunning example of equine anatomy.
Necks are always a pain to get right, and I was holding up my horse pieces and squinting at my reference… and the inevitable happened.
I was so stunned that for a few moments I just sort of stared at my tea. I briefly considered fishing the head out with a sculpting tool (they were near at hand) but I figured that a spoon would be cleaner and easier.
The head was rescued and is now securely attached. And I learned an important lesson about holding small plastic bits over vats of heated liquid.
