donate to this charity!!!

i encourage ALL artists to make a piece of art for it is such a great cause and the woman running the shelter/rescue does wonders with little money. donations of artwork would go a long way for the dogs she takes care of!

anyone who knows me knows i fight for the fair treatment of all animals. crap our poor intern at work had no idea what he was asking for when i saw him about to squash a random bug OUTSIDE during one of our stories recently... i was like 'What the hell are you doing?" as i see him getting ready to mush it...and he says, "killin a bug" to which i threatened him a long walk the hour back to the station if he remotely followed through with his intentions. WTF? he was outside -in the bugs space? (ok so i am not perfect, i do kill Brown Recluse spiders which we have an abundance of in our house this season. grrrr)

i have been feeling very creative lately and just made these two fiber pieces this weekend. i felt recharged mentally hammering rusty nails into fabric -to the ground. i have zero idea what i am doing with these fiber pieces but it makes me healthy again. to make art is very therapeutic, so that is why i encourage you to donate a piece of art to the above link. it will help you AND the dogs.

a few updates...

the two i have recently finished are the fairydog and pooldog. photos are as follows. all of their clothes are pieced together with thrift store bought clothing i then cut up and sew directly onto the dog.

she is hand-stitched and is sporting fancy wings.

two more victims on the left..... bwahahaha

pooldog is making sure he doesn't get a sunburn with his lotion and he thinks safety first with his stylish arm floaties.

the girl to the left photo'd here is a donation for a great rescue run by a woman that lives for the dogs she saves. check her website out. if you are an artist please make something for her to sell to generate money for her "cause". here are some photos of the dog i made her, charitydog.

she is sporting some sweet chuck taylor like shoes!!!
