Small space, let’s use it!

We have a hall closet packed with helmets, gloves, chaps, scarves etc., etc. so when I got a new helmet I thought, ok we need to figure out more storage. Our house is small and space is limited. As we walked around Hobby Lobby the other day we came across these boxes and the 💡 lightbulb went off…hang them!   Many shelves were too narrow for helmets so a larger depth is the key, these are 12×12. They have drawers (baskets) for gloves, scarves, sunscreen etc and hooks mounted to a weathered board completed our tiny wall mudroom! 


So now you can make one too if you are spacially challenged, just find a little wall! ❤️ Regina 

Signs of Spring

☕️💞☕️ *CLINK*! 

Good morning friends! I just got back from the morning smoosh face 🐾🐾 walk and now having my 2nd cup of coffee on the porch reviewing my todo list. The birds are singing and I can hear a distant lawn mower. Why do I find the sound of a lawn mower comforting? My thought is that it reminds me Spring is here and the lawns are growing. I wish I could open a window and drift away to dreams of laying by a pool in some tropical getaway BUT work calls and for that I’m thankful because it means you’ve ordered more Steel Cowgirl goodies! Hi ho hi ho it’s off to work I go. Have a great day ☀️ xo Regina

Kevlar Inventor, a Woman!

If you’ve ever worn a helmet, skied, or driven on a suspension bridge, then you’ve experienced the work of Stephanie Kwolek, who invented Kevlar. Kwolek was always interested in fibers from a young age. She loved fashion and even created clothes for her dolls. Kwolek got a job at the chemical company DuPont to save money for medical school. However, she instead stayed with the company to research how to turn polymers into synthetic fibers. Instead of polymers with molecules that were random, Kwolek worked with ones that formed rows. She ran the polymers (after some resistance from a factory) through a spinneret, which created a fiber that was as strong as steel.

That fiber was the first piece of kevlar. It went on to create countless things, but most famously the bulletproof vest. Although she went on to file 17 patents, kevlar ended up being her lasting legacy, which we should be thankful for today.

Our souls will thank us…

I do a lot of graphic design with Steel Cowgirl but haven’t sketched in a sketch book since college. My brother suggested I get a sketch book again and just enjoy. So, I did! First little sketches, I’m rusty but I am really enjoying it! 
You know it’s interesting how we can love doing something and somehow we get away from it. I think life gets busy and complicated and the little pleasures get put aside.  We musn’t let this happen!  If it’s something we love then it’s important to our souls.  How about this…I will continue to sketch and you get back to something you once loved to do.  Our souls will thank us! ❤️ Regina
