Maplewood Elegance is a website and or gallery of my art. I have an art talent that God has given me. This website is the perfect way to spread it! I have many tabs and pages that you can look at and learn. I will consistently be on here so please check it out!
I have been collecting Breyer horses since I was four. I played with them a bunch and broke their legs and scratched them up; they were very loved! I always had to have my dad fix them. Well now that I am older, I do not play with my models much anymore. Most of the time I leave them on my shelf or constantly pick them up. Looking back I wish I did not play with my models as hard as I did. I have a bunch of scratched horses. Not to mention the legs I threw away. My horse from Dreamer is now a custom. She was my most favorite, most scratched, and most loved. I was just going to repaint her the color she was but ended up with the beautiful color she is now. This is why I have my website. I am transforming old models into beautiful art pieces. I have not yet regretted any of my customizing. The only regrets are the few first times of making tack when a piece of wire would scratch my horse. But if it weren't from one little aggravating scratch, I would not have improved my tack making. I learn something new from every custom piece I do weather it is tack, horses, or fixing a piece of a guitar strap or something. I love what I do and I want to share it with you! God has given me an amazing gift! Too amazing for me to hold it back. So, I want to say thank you for visiting my website and I hope you enjoy!
