This is also my NEW BLOG - I have decided to amalgamate my blog into my website, in an attempt to streamline things and hopefully post more regularly. If you receive my Blogspot blog via email, you will need to update your RSS feed using the link to the side of this page. I'm not sure how to get my blog posts emailed out yet, I'm not sure if I can via Weebly, I'm sorry for that.
So, last weekend saw the two day annual event that is the BMECs. BMECs stands for British Model Equine Championships, they are the British equivalent of NAN and DUN and are the place to see the very elite that the UK hobby has to offer. Sadly I couldn't attend both days, as I have to rely on hubby to take care of our little one now, but we all headed to the show on Sunday and got to see the Artist China, Artist Resin and Custom sections.
Preparations for the show were quite frantic, having spent so long out of action, and with so many orders for Capriole yet to be filled I wasn't able to offer copies at the event, I didn't feel I had very much to offer. So, I had a look in my studio and gathered up all the models I had that hadn't met the grade when cast, and decided to have a big seconds sale! I had Night Heather, Moonlit Dale, MM and TT Pony Mare seconds, then I added a few resins from my personal collection (SMB, Pack, Stokes, Chaney and an unknown jumper resin I couldn't identify even after quite a while Googling!).
I donated a few items to the show, including these resin rosettes (I was in too much of a hurry to get a decent photo, sorry). I printed out some little centre stickers for them too, I believe these were given out to the judges at the event.
