Every year my friend and fellow artist, Virginia Spiegel, conjures up a unique fundraiser involving fiber artists to raise money for the American Cancer Society. And every year, I volunteer to get involved and help her in any way I can. This year I created a special journal as a prize to be won by one lucky donor. This journal measures 5" x 5" and contains 80 sheets of writing paper. The cover is painted and collaged and signed. I wanted to use cheerful colors to symbolize hope, hope for a cure.

Just finishing up a recent photo shoot, and this is one of my favorite photographs from their session. They had 3 long-haired dogs, all either grey or black & white. It made for some great photographs!
These two little sweethearts weigh about 2.5 pounds each. Bently was one of my foster dogs, and he was adopted to be Izzie's brother. We are babysitting them both for the weekend, while their parents attend the Chargers game. I had specific instructions to make sure they wear their Chargers outfits today for game day!
Dory is a 6 year old female English bulldog. She was released by a "breeder" and arrived in rescue in horrible condition. One eye had been removed, and the other one was in bad enough condition that rescue had to have it surgically removed. The breeder had also removed the ear drum in one ear and sewn it shut, and the other ear was so badly infected that she had no hearing. As her ear infection clears up, thankfully her hearing is returning in that ear. Through it all, Dory has had a fabulous personality, and I am totally in love with her!
