I just made my first inchie a week or so ago, as I was looking at the challenge entries at one of the inchie challenge blogs I came across this tutorial for Inchie Cube Decorations http://bitze.wordpress.com/2008/11/17/inchie-ornament-tutorial/
I fell in love with how cool these look and I had to make one this morning!!! I love it! I used copies of vintage pictures of my brothers and sisters. Everyone should try one of these, they are so cool!! Please click on the pics for a bigger view, thanks!

Challenges and a Weimaraner in action

I caught up with some artwork today and I have an entry for this week at
The challenge this week was to use the image of the woman below. I don't know if you can click for a bigger view or not but the words read " She's got a light around her a million dreams of love surround her everywhere." That Billy Joel song came to mind as I was adding the crown of rays.

My inchie entry for

Old School ATC and Tired Weimaraner

Here is an old school card I made for a name swap a little while ago. I wish I had some new work to show, but I am finishing up special order domino pendants that have to be mailed out in time for Christmas and most of them use personal pictures from the people ordering so I don't want to post them for privacy reasons. I am making stuff though!! Once the special orders are done I will be able to do ATC's and inchies and more fun stuff.

Here is Riley trying to fall asleep on my shoulder..

Splendid Fish and Weimaraner Faces

I'm going to see if I can upload a Riley picture a day as well as a piece of artwork a day. Maybe once a week would be more realistic to start with. So here is my latest domino pendant which can be found here in my Ebay store http://stores.ebay.com/Riley-Coyote-Creations unless someone else has grabbed it up already, but there are plenty of other sweet pendants there to look at.

Here is the Riley boy, I'm not sure what he's trying to say with this look on his face.. but it's definitely a statement of some kind.
