Before I started anything today I thought it might be a very good idea to tidy my work desk. I think I got as far as the upper shelves and desk top and that was it, By the time I hit all the unpainted Eberls I seem to have gathered on the right I gave up.....simply no room to move them all to! Still its looking a lot better for restarting tack work in a few days time.

After achieving very little on tidying I moved on to the parcel the postman had delivered a hour or so earlier......

Wow this came fast! I literally only ordered it at 3pm yesterday! If only everything came that fast (*mutters* darn classic scale stirrups, its been like a month! grrr!). Any how, yes its a box. A boring wooden box. Nothing exciting not even when opened....

For ages now I have wanted some where to store my own personal collection of tack, at the moment it tends to hover around my work stuff gathering dust which isn't ideal. So I thought I'd turn this box into a Tack box! I have a few things to get like hooks and something for the saddles to sit on but I'll grab them from the local DIY store tomorrow. I might also turn it into a 'How to' tutorial for anyone that also fancies ideas for making a nice tack box. That will probably be tomorrows post. :)

Still on the wooden/crafting theme I finally got this back out of the cupboard....

I made this jump well over a year ago but never really finished it off. I didn't show so I lost enthusiasm for it. Now I'm going to be performance showing this year I nabbed it back out and dusted it off. It needed the markers finishing and some greenery adding but other than that i don't really have a lot to do to it. Once its complete I will pop more piccies up.

In the mean time have a Happy New Year everyone!

I do love my blog, Honest!

 Firstly....I hope everyone had a great christmas and got some nice pressies from Santa? Hehe.

Oh my! It seems like my blog has been yet again gathering dust. What with the run up to christmas and me being so disorganised its been a tad hectic my end so I just haven't had the time for blogging. Now christmas has been and gone I feel I can concerntrate on other things...yay!

I will be putting up a few posts over the next few days regarding models and saddlery but until then I will leave you all with all the flooding pictures of my poor Island. We suffered torrential rain and gale force winds just after christmas and I swear for 48 hours all were heard were sirens of emergency vehicles going out.

This is a playing field not a huge lake! Didn't take long for the rats with wings (Seagulls) to claim it!

Train tracks that later down the line were submerged under 9ft of water.

I think the rest will speak for themselves....

Above : Thats actually the train tunnels at the end not a river!

And lastly before I forget CK Tiny Tack is now also over on Facebook here - https://www.facebook.com/#!/Cktinytack so if you have facebook and would like to also follow my work on there too give that 'like' button a click! I'll still be blogging as well, worry not. :)
