Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everybody!

I'll have more later, but for now here are three of the few photos I've made since I've come home over break.

This was taken coming back on the plane, just before we dropped below the clouds.

Sarah the cat. It's not a great show, but if it's a cat it deserves to be posted.

Maricruz relaxing by the fire.

More to come today after riding!

Finals Week Photo

Although none of you are going to go through any sort of withdrawal if I don't post, I thought that for my own conscience's sake I should make at least one post to hold me over for the finals week. One less thing to worry about, right?

I didn't take this recently, but I just edited it while on a ten-minute study break (I'm on one now, too). It's Roca, another one of the farm horses. I usually don't ride him but I did twice last week. He was great the first time (right after this picture was taken) and slightly rotten the second time. He ran off once while still in the barn and put his leg through the reins, then when we went outside he trotted off again to go eat some grass. And this was with me pulling as hard as I could. And I'm not all that weak, either, so it just goes to show how strong horses really are--as well as how little of their strength they choose to use. He was fine both times and pretty good under saddle that day, too. He's fine with the egg-butt he has now under saddle, but if you're leading him with an egg-butt it just does not work. Which is why he always has a stud chain with his halter.

This is from when I was back in Austin over Thanksgiving. My kitty Veronica.

That's all for today! I'll have more over Christmas break if I have any time that I'm not skiing.

Latest Shots

Since I haven't posted for a while due to finals, I thought I'd just show off a few of my favorite shots from what I've been doing recently.

Bracelet making
Green Chevron

Multi-colored overlap bracelet... this one has been in the works for a very long time.

Ends of two bracelets, contrasting the twist end to the free string end

Three bracelets I made in 1 or 2 days
I need to work on depth of focus in these macro shots! Haha.


Just a warning. This cat is so awesome that I'm including a full quarter of the pictures I took of him--haha

OMG what is that?

I have more of him but I won't keep you looking at him for too long.

And... Happy Holidays!

More to come over the holidays!

For the two Secret Santas I am doing, I've made some little gifts.

The first is a halter that fits the Flash mold.

The second is a friendship bracelet made in variegated embroidery floss. I'm not only going to gift this, because that would be lame, so I'm making a few different kinds of bracelet in different colors.  I'll update this post when I have the other ones made.

Hopefully they will like these two gifts! Obviously they're only tiny parts of the two packages, though.

Back in Texas

I'm back in Texas for Thanksgiving break and fully intending to spend a lot of time with both my family/friends and my camera. I've already been to see Jones, and took a riding lesson. My mom was riding so she wasn't available to man the camera and take some pictures of us together, but I did get a couple of him in his stall. He's pretty friendly, so it was hard to get a good one.

I also took several pictures of the horses in the back pastures.


More photos from my visit home to come!

Macro Editing

On my hard drive I have a few macro shots that I just edited to show you.

Also, I would like to note that this is my 100th post. Happy 100?

Some Edited Shots

Going through my hard drive, I found a lot of pictures that I should have edited a while back but never did. Here are some of the ones that I just put up on deviantART.

The Tetons as seen from Snow King

Hidden Falls... yeah, I know, everyone has this picture

Taken with a point-and-shoot at the top of Paintbrush Divide

A pinecone broken in half--I didn't change the color.
Hope you enjoy!
