Crafty Blogger Gifts

It's been a long week full of more travel, crazy work stuff, and heavy blog posts, so I just wanted to end the week with something a little lighter.

I've been the recipient of a couple of amazing handmade blogger items lately.  First, a stall sign made by Olivia at DIY Horseownership:

I love the sparkly gold and white thread she used, and that shade of wood is my favorite.

I'm not sure if I'm just projecting my own image of Connor onto it or if she really used a photo of him to do it, but it definitely looks like him shape-wise too.  Way impressive if this is based on a photo of him, Olivia!

And second, I won one of the test bags in Amanda's giveaway:

Definitely think about picking one up if/when she makes it available.  It's proven to be well-made and BIG.  Way more carrying capacity than I thought it would have.

Currently holding all of the spare cables, dongles and other nerd gear I need for my job.  And a pair of safety glasses.  You never know.

Thank you to you both and to all the bloggers that are just providing me with escape opportunities as I read your blogs between meetings!  Love this community.


  1. The stall sign is gorgeous!!! 😍 And that bag looks super useful (while also being fun).

  2. I'm glad you like it! It's definitely based on a Conner picture though I don't remember which one at this point.

    1. Love it! I can't thank you enough, it's awesome.

  3. Oooh that looks so much like Connor! I love it!

  4. That wooden stall sign is so, so neat!! I agree-it has to be Connor :)
