Tagged & Dressage Sign

Just added a new sign to Ebay. I haven't added any lettering to the bottom so I can customize it for the high bidder.

I've been tagged by Wendy Blum of Sand & Sea Designs! Since I haven't done one of these things in a long time, I thought I'd give this one a go. That and the kid is taking a nap so I have a few minutes to myself for once! Please check out Wendy's blog if you get the chance, she does amazing work!

8 Things I'm Looking Forward To:

1. Summer - my DH is a teacher and has off so I can paint!
2. Planting flowers & veggies.
3. Paying my house off in 13-18 years.
4. Going to the Willowdale Steeplechase on Mother's Day.
5. Going to the beach in June.
6. Going to the Devon Horse Show.
7. For my newly planted perennials to grow big.
8. To have a horse again someday.

8 Things I did Yesterday:

1. Got up really early.
2. Went to my mother's house with my daughter.
3. Took my mom's dog to the vets with her.
4. My mom bought me 6 new perennials!
5. Went to the hospital to see my sister in labor & delivery.
6. Hung out in the hospital for a few hours.
7. Held a newborn baby girl!
8. Watched Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.

8 Things I Wish I Could Do:

1. Play cello
2. Ride horses
3. Make pottery & stained glass
4. Eat less & exercise more

Also want to thank Kathleen of Life Earth Sky for my latest blog award! Kat's artwork is amazing, please be sure to check out her blog.

With this award I am supposed to name 5 of my favorite movies and what I think the best movie of this year will be. It's too hard to pick 5 since I have so many but these are in my top 20...
Amelie (yes, this is my very favorite movie)
Pee Wee's Big Adventure
The Big Lebowski
Good Fellas
Pulp Fiction

The movie I'm looking forward to most this year is Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince.

Love your sign! Beautiful!

I love the Devon Horse Show, but now that I am living in California its a bit far to go :-(.

Kathleen Coy said...

Great movie pics, thanks for playing. I LOVE Pee Wee's Big Adventure! So many great quotes from that one...

Beautiful sign, as always! :-)

Linda said...

Jennifer, do you do custom signs based on personal pictures of horses? I LOVE your signs, but want to see my own horse's picture. :)

Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor said...

Hi Linda,
Yes, I do take the occasional custom order. Price for a sign painted from your photo is $150 + shipping. Thanks for asking:)

Beautiful Sign. Lots of "getting to know you" facts! I don't know if I would enjoy the steeplechase too much, seems they fall alot!

I can't wait to see your Steeplechase pix -- I miss going to Gold Cup in Virginia. The best part is that the steeplechase is a 501(c)(3) non-profit deal. What a great idea! Hm. . . .
