Week 2 Drawing Lab

The challenge this week was to look at a photo of a giraffe and to do a blind contour drawing. It didn't mention how many to do, so I did 5.

I remember blind contour drawings from college during Life Drawing classes. I always hated them. I tried to enjoy this project though and to not care about what the final result was.

In other news we are dog sitting a friend's dog. His name is Riley. He has a sad history.

He was discovered in the desert and brought Border Animal Rescue. I saw him there and didn't know what to do. He was adorable and what I thought was a shih tzu (which are the best dogs in the world if you didn't already know that). I could not take another dog so I called my friends Donna and David to see if they could take him. They told me to adapt him and to bring him to their shop in town.
So I did.
In the shop was Patti. A local who a year prior had lost her dog Lilly. Riley found his forever mommy that day!

So Patti took Riley and spoiled him rotten! Except she had to go back home to take care of her mom for a few weeks while her mom goes through chemo.

So we are dog sitting Riley. Sad thing is that he pees on everything! I can't get him to stop marking up my house!

Since I doubt anyone really reads this blog (except you mean people who spy on know who you are and don't think I don't know that you read this to keep tabs) if anyone knows a way to get Riley to stop marking up the house please let me know. It is starting to get very frustrating!

In OTHER news I made two more rings for my etsy shop which I am absolutely IN LOVE with!

This is a simplistic flower ring. Made to order and can be found at the linky below. Sweet, simplistic and a reminder that despite the freezing cold spring is just around the corner!

And this ring! Which I am absolutely crazy about. It is big, chunky and that malachite stone is to dye for!

I might be doing a giveaway in a few days...we will see.


  1. I read your blog. And not to spy either! ;) love the new rings! I made some similar flowers last week out of pmc but wasn't sure what to do with them! Sorry about the peeing dog. I saw some doggy diapers at petsmart the other day...

  2. Hi Amy,

    Thank you for reading. I am wearing my seahorse druzy ring today :)

    I am not sure if I could get the diapers on the dog...maybe it is worth a try.
