ZIP GETS A BATH!

My 10 pound mini dachshund is very maintenance free.  He has hair that is almost waterproof, he never needs to get brushed, he never smells weird, he is just the perfect dog!

But, every now and again, he does stink, like today, so he got his bath in the kitchen sink.

He fits in half of a double sink!  He is so good for daddy!
Look at that face!
I almost can't stand it!  Him in a towel!  Look at his little arms!

And, I knowDebbie Doo loves dogs, so since I am linking up to her newbie party, I thought this was perfect!!

Now, a bit of art!
This time, the ArtChix were asking for art that is blue.  I decided to make this piece.
I started with recycled canvas, and painted it a cobalt color.  Added white, used bubble wrap to make clouds, and add texture.  Then, I ripped gauze and put it all around the clouds.   I added a large star that  I covered in Tim Holtz tissue tape.  I also stamped on part of the canvas.  I added some bits and trim, and an image from an ArtChix collage sheet.  I think it is kind of dreamy!

I will also be linking this to Smiling Sally's Blue Monday!  I hope she doesn't think it looks purple!

Have fun everyone!!  I will be back in a few days to show off my thrift store finds!

  8. We are dachshund lovers--espescially the miniature ones. In fact, we used to have a little guy who looks almost like Zip. He lived a happy life with us for 15 1/2 years!

    Happy 1st Blue Monday, Daniella.
