Over the 4th we decided to take a short trip down to San Antonio which is one of my favorite places to visit. We go a few times a year to enjoy the river walk. This time the weather was poor so we explored somewhere new! The Witte museum is part natural history, part native history, and part cowboy/ cowgirl history. We went through exabits on various dinosaur bones and fossil found in Texas (T-rexes were one of them in case you happen to be thinking of time traveling... lol). There were also maps of Texas throughout the prehistoric periods showing that it spent a lot of time under water and as part of a massive coastline which explains why they find so many fossils.
But of course the best part of the museum involved horses!

The shop will be on vacation as of today. We will reopen on July 14th and kick things off with our Breyerfest sale (25% storewide) + free gift in all orders!
I've been contemplating whether or not to take a brief hiatus prior to breyerfest. Last year I did a big sale and it was amazing so this year I want to knock it out of the park. That means I need a bit of time to prioritize making a bunch of stuff. I'll be updating this blog and my instagram (handcraftedbykari_studios) with pics of all the new stuff. Hopefully there will be a lot.
I'm putting together sets like I used to have for a while, so far I have a bunch of haybags and I'm working hard to get the buckets finished up and halters + leads made!

I got some rainbow filament! I've been wanting some for a while and I finally convinced myself to get some... (I'm really good at convincing myself to get things lol!) One of the issues is that it takes a lot of filament to get a good expression of the color change... so it's going to take some experimentation. I printed out a jump stand to get an idea of how fast it changes and wow did it turn out better than expected.

I guess all my dolls are old and now all of the new breyer dolls have the biggest heads.
I made this really cool helmet for my dolls.
But here we are, I don't make helmets to fit the new heads. I don't own dolls of the new heads. And now I have a really cool infographic since saying it won't fit the new dolls is not clear enough. But seriously why did they have to do a weird hybrid thing?
