Puppy Bling and Art Yarn Challenges!

I not a big football fan ~ but I was a very good sport yesterday while my boys watched the game. In the meantime I decided to entertain myself and decorate my puppy with some handspun bling!

Check her out! See how she is smiling ;)

Recently I was requested to create some Art Yarn from a very wonderful etsy customer of mine. The challenge was... "I would like the final product to look kind of like someone reached into a wild garden and picked up a handful of flowers and leaves and dirt and grass and birds and bugs and made a crazy skein of yarn out of it!"
I had so much fun playing with her idea and this is what I came up with...
I call it 700 Flowers!

And since it is Graditude Monday ~ I would like to say, I am so grateful to get to play with the qualities of playfulness and whimsy! To get to flirt with joy and the often unexpected delights that are born out of "just playing" and watching where that brings me.
I bet my puppy could teach me tons about this ;)

Happy Monday!

I own that yarn! I've been buying art yarns for years now, but I think this is my all-time favorite. Shelby took my idea and treated me with this yummy, gorgeous garden of color. Thank you Shelby. You're truly gifted, and I'll be back for another shared adventure soon,
