A Blog You Should Follow!

While making my blog rounds, it is always a special treat to run across something (or someone) who is super special, and that is exactly what happened last week when we were reading One Spoiled Cat, a blog that our dear friend Sammy and his loving and gifted Mom Pam, work tirelessly on.

There was an incredible drawing of Sammy that was done  by Thomas Dalsgaard Clausen who is currently working on doing “One Drawing Daily”.  To quote Thomas “I have been drawing and painting and learning every day since the 9th September 2014.” 

With every drawing, Thomas writes about how it was done, the medium used, etc.

Thomas put a call out that if you would like a sketch done, just leave him a comment on his blog, telling him so. Boy oh boy is he ever quick! I left a comment about both of my boys, and I do subscribe to Thomas’s blog, but didn’t know he had done a sketch of Dakota til Pam left a message on our blog.

Here is the incredible sketch he did of my Dakota!!! Thomas captured the sensitivity in Dakota’s eyes just by using a ballpoint pen! Click on Dakota’s photo to read about how it was done and to follow Thomas’s blog and to see all of the other amazing drawings that he has done for many of us! Thank you so much Thomas! I LOVE IT!!!

Desert Raven Art

Back in October my Mom entered a give-away on a wonderful blog called Desert Raven Art.  The give-away was for a beautiful beaded bracelet, and guess what?

Mom WON!

She was so excited!

Isn't it beautiful!? Mom got a lovely note from Mary as well!

Mom thinks the bracelet is colorful, unique and is a  special piece  that she will always cherish!

Part of what makes it even more special is that Mary Hone (the artist behind Desert Raven Art)  is a member of Art For Critters.

What does that mean?

I’ll let Mary tell you from her own website because she can explain it best!

“Being a member of Art for Critters, means I can help an animal organization through selling my art. There are several organizations that Art for Critters helps, and one of them is Almost Heaven Golden retriever rescue.    

I am going to donate 15% of the total sales for November and December,  from theTrade bead jewelry, Bison leather bags and the Stone Spirits to Almost Heaven.

So please help me help them. Almost Heaven is a sanctuary for Goldens that due to age or health issues are considered unadoptable. Almost Heaven helps them to find a forever home, or if that isn’t possible they stay at the sanctuary. To learn more about Almost Heaven, please click the link above.”

Mom and I think that is truly special and generous of Mary to do that!

Mary also has another great blog that we follow called Roxy The Traveling Dog

Mom says THANK YOU Mary for her beautiful bracelet and for all that you do for the “Goldens”

Give  Roxy a special “hello” from Mom and Dakota!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota
