You wouldn't know it by looking at my collection now, but I used to be one of those people who was absolutely convinced that I'd never be able to afford resins.
That began to change in the early 2000's. There were a number of reasons behind the shift--the most significant of which was the discovery that some people would actually trade tack for resins. Much to my own surprise, I found myself the proud owner of a handful of middling resins.
Of course once I had them, I couldn't wait to show them. I especially couldn't wait to show them at the Crazy Ladies live show--an all resin and custom specialty show held by my friends Regan and Teresa. It didn't matter that my horses weren't very competitive. Just being there was victory enough.
One of the stars of that long ago show was Heather Roell's brand new Khan resin named Frank.
I remember oohing and ahhing over Frank's amazing details,and thinking sadly that I would never own anything that nice.
But then I remembered that not so long ago I'd thought I'd never be able to afford resins and look how that had turned out! Anything was possible. I stopped feeling sorry for myself and vowed that someday I would own something as nice as Frank.
And now, all these years later, I don't just own something like Frank--I actually own Frank himself! It's hard to believe, but sometimes even the most impossible dreams do come true!
