Dog sofa

I was looking for something unrelated on craigslist this afternoon and came across this in the free section. I’m still laughing because I know how hard it is to get MY dogs off of their couch when I’m trying to change the slipcover, much less sell it out from under them. Totally made my day.

My Other Dog

Since I miss him so much when I don’t have him with me (since he’s not actually my dog), I decided my next piece was going to be one of Rico. This is a sneak peek at how he’s coming along. 🙂

Daisy and Dub finished

The pair of Cocker Spaniels is finished! Thank you to Pat for allowing me to create these memorial pieces of her beloved fur family ♥

Pat’s husband’s little Buddy (a/k/a Dub) measures 15″ high by 11″ wide and Pat’s girl Daisy measures 21″ long by 12″ high.

Cocker Spaniel – Daisy

Daisy was a friend’s beloved Buff Cocker Spaniel who was her sidekick everywhere. Still some more work to go, but here are some progress shots:

Sculpture class today

Nemo just loves going with me to teach the sculpture class over at the senior center. Constructed from recycled objects and wrapped up with papier mache like little mummies, after construction and addition of clay details like eyes and toes, we switch to the painting of our little creations.

Fun with pet food bags

True to my recycling mantra of “reclaim and reuse,” here are just a few of the recycling projects we’ve used large plastic pet food bags for: three of the aprons for our art class as well as a banner for our table at craft fairs.

Outdoor studio

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and a lovely day to be working outside. True to my “use as much recycled materials wherever and whenever possible” mantra, I found both the stool and the glass-topped desk on the side of the road, on different days, but still free. Got to love that!
