This week marks the first Inspiration Avenue Challenge that is co-hosted by a regular participant in the challenges. Co-hosting along with Shelly (Shelinwa) is Elizabeth of Elizabeth and Bluebeard. If her name sounds familiar, it is because I just introduced you to Elizabeth in my previous post as the one who will be teaching the altered book class online. Anyway, Elizabeth chose as the subject of this challenge...rocking horses! I don't think anyone was surprised, since she is an avid collector of them and has over 450 in varying sizes!
I picked up this unfinished wood rocking horse ornament at an after Christmas sale a while ago and every year it makes it to my desk, and I say this is the year I'll paint it...but he sadly stays unfinished. So thank you Elizabeth for giving me the push I needed. If you have ever visited my blog around Christmas, I have mentioned before that I've made our daughter one ornament every year since she was born that I put aside in a box. It will be a surprise some day when I present her with this gift. So even though my hands are not as steady as they used to be...I present her 2012 ornament:
Thanks so much for this fun challenge! Have a happy, creative weekend everyone!
