Paws & Crafts: Felting with Poodle Hair


paws and crafts headerFelting is in, dogs! Looking for ways to use your extra dog hair and help your humans fill up their empty time? This month’s project, submitted by my friend, Calla, can do both! Poodle and doodle hair are perfect for felting. “I love having a mini me!” confesses Calla.

Paws & Crafts: Bone Arrangement


paws and crafts headerAs much as our humans love us, sometimes they put us in boxes…In this case, I’m not barking about kennels, I mean a limited view of a dog’s artistic sensibility. For myself, I find being a creative dog helps me stay balanced. One of my favorite modes of expression is bone arrangement. I use whatever materials are handy in my toy box. I like to think of my pieces as chew toy mandalas, representing the transient nature and beauty of life.

harper bone stackingI’m very pleased with my latest piece. In my work, I strive for simplicity of composition, symmetry, and a pop of color. I call this piece, “Red Bone, Chew Bone.”

So don’t let the fact that you’re a dog stop you from being an artist…sure, you probably can’t make a living at it, but then again you don’t need to.
