Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

I've been BUSY!!!!

Wow!  The time certainly has flown!

I've been busy.  Hubby hurt his back again and I have to drive him to chiro appointments.  Bummer....I'm the one with the injured back and sciatica!

I've discovered Mod Podge!  Mod Podge is a mixture of glue and varnish and you can use it to coat and seal art projects!  I made 14 photo canvases and they are on ETSY (desertsandbeyond), but NONE have sold!  And, they are CHEAP!  Oh, well...I'll hang them up on the living room wall, I guess!

I've made a few wooden signs, too.  I go to Home Depot and have them cut either fence boards or 1x12x72 lumber.  They do the cuts for free.  I have a LOT of wood for wooden signs now.

Then I discovered paper napkins!  Oh, my!

Here are some photos of my projects:

 Paper napkin on 5x7 canvas...I added the vinyl stickers and the glitter netting.
My photos on canvas.  Next time, I'm going to paint the canvas with colors from the photos.


I made this one for the grandson.  2 pieces of wood glued together with paint stirring strips on the back for extra support.  This is while the Mod Podge was drying.  It dried clear.
