Another Dog Project

So, continuing in my dog centric craftiness, I made a cute little dress for our new puppy Vixen from a fantastic pattern I bought off off http://petitepuppypatterns.com/Site/Home-1.html

So adorable, and the pattern is so versatile. Unfortunately I got the pattern a little to small, as Vixie is her pudgy puppy stage, and she's still growing. Today I got the pattern for the next size up, and I can't wait to make some more dresses out of all of the fun fabric I bought!

Veering Off

Once again I'm in jewelry burn out mode after doing the last art show. So, I've been giving my brain a bit of a rest from jewelry creation.
In the meantime, I've been working on some items for my doggies. Once I perfect them, I hope to be able to market them to other people with small dogs.
A small sample. The orange knit sweater:

Right now it's pretty basic, but I'm working on it. Eventually, it will evolve into something more impressive.
And, here's the fleece I've been crafting:

So far I'm happy to have figured out a few basic patterns. They're solid and ready to be awesome. Wish me, and my dogs, luck :)

Yeah for Animals!

Recently, I was really bummed out when I found out I was not selected to join the Etsy Wire Artisans Guild. I thought my wire skills had finally developed to the point of being considered at least pretty good, so this was a bit of a blow to the 'ol fragile ego.

So, imagine my surprise when I got a message from someone who had seen my Etsy site and said she loved my work. And that she managed a local art studio. And would like me to come teach wire working! I was so elated I could hardly speak. After meeting her this weekend, it seem like it's going to be a go, and I'll actually be teaching people to do wire working. My ego was restored a bit.

I also have an art show on Friday featuring my new animal designs (which is why many of them aren't listed in my Etsy shop yet). I hope it goes well and I sell at least a few pieces.

And here's the piece that caught the eye of the studio manager, and one of the pieces from my new animal line:

I love the animal pieces. They're just so much fun to create, and people really respond to them. I just hope they do well at my show. We'll see!
