Help End Mexican Wolf Baiting in Southwest Forests

The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, located in eastern Arizona where Mexican gray wolves roam, has proposed a new policy requiring proper disposal of livestock carcasses -- the first time livestock owners would be tasked with responsibility to prevent conflicts with wolves. Please voice your support for this policy.

Visit http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/2167/t/5243/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=25971 to take action.

Items for sale

Please go to the "Items for sale" tag on the left side of this blog or here, to see my updated list of items for sale.  I've lowered the price of some items and added the recent "Noble Wolf" woodburning. This costs a little more due to the wood used. I'm also NOT going to be doing anymore of the boxes ad frames since I'm not sure of the wood type and it is too soft to burn on. Also these come from China and I'd rather keep track of where my wood is coming from particularly for enviromental reasons. At least with drawing you can use recycled paper... The basswood slices come from Walnut Hollow by the way. I am looking at using fallen branch slices for pendants right now so that will be good hopefully I'll have some to work with soon, I just need a saw and also a new drill  Howl at ya later!!

Club Pogo's Vikings!



I've been playing alot on Club Pogo lately, thanks to a gift guest pass from a friend. My screenname is wolfs755.  I thought I'd share the "Mini" I made there too, these are little doll avatars you can "buy" clothes, backgrounds and other goodies for using the points you win from games.  This is pretty much the only outfit I like (naturally) though of course putting horns on her helmet is wrong; the male version of the costume is a bit more accurate with NO horns on the helmet and he carries a hammer .  It's frustrasting though, because there are'nt many good backgrounds or items to go with a Viking girl, hopefully they'll come up with a little wolf or dragon to give her someday.  Howl at ya later!!

Sebastian Bach

Here are some drawings and art from my old Sebastian Bach Fan site (not including the wood pyrography piece). I had a lot of my work there as well as art from other fans, and it was really alot of fun to do and was even posted by Sebastian on his site a couple times. These are the drawings I feel were my personal best and favorites, and a couple are signed by Sebastian himself. I think the Hulk Baz one is my all-time favorite. These are posted at my Flickr page as well. Enjoy!

New pics of Lucy!

Portraits of Lucy taken with my cellphone. About the red on her neck, she does get breakouts (acne) and rashes sometimes, especially after I've trimmed her face. I do try to relieve it with lotion. Acne and sensitive skin can be a problem with Chinese Cresteds.

Protect Our Great Lakes

From KING of Chemicals and EcologyCenter :


The Saginaw Bay is the largest watershed in Michigan. More than 50 miles of its rivers that empty into Lake Huron are threatened by dioxin and other highly hazardous chemicals. Federal and state laws require Dow Chemical Company, the responsible party, to clean up the contamination. However, pressure to resolve this issue behind closed doors is mounting. Public participation in an open transparent process is the best way to assure cleanup will be comprehensive and will restore the region to health.

Help stop the Wild Bison Slaughter

From Defenders Of Wildlife:

Some of America’s last free-roaming wild bison are being slaughtered on a scale not seen since the 1800s. And hundreds more could to be killed.

Take action now! Write the Montana Promotion Division -- the state’s tourism officials -- and speak out for sensible wildlife management of these American icons!

This year alone, more than 1,100 bison have been killed -- nearly a quarter of the wild population. This is no way to manage one of the most beloved icons of the American West. We need your voice to stop it.

Take action to show strong support for major changes to the way wild bison are managed in Montana.

WOLVERINES!!


Sorry for the Red Dawn quote, when I saw this I could'nt resist.... From Defenders of Wildlife:

The Bush/Cheney administration has spurned the wolverine again, defying scientific evidence and refusing to list this rare creature under the Endangered Species Act.

New scientific evidence reported by Defenders of Wildlife documents the wolverine's uncertain future, raising concerns about the effects of global warming and continued trapping of this elusive carnivore.

But despite the growing body of scientific evidence, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released a court-ordered decision declaring for the second time that it will do nothing to assist this rare creature -- leaving the wolverine in desperate straits.

We need to let the Bush/Cheney administration know that we strongly believe wolverines and their habitat need federal protection, before it's too late.

Please sign our petition to the administration to list the wolverine as a protected species under the Endangered Species Act.

Support a National Wolf Recovery Plan



From Defenders Of Wildlife and Care2.com:

In the wake of the federal delisting of wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies, Defenders of Wildlife and our allies have filed a formal petition with the Fish and Wildlife Service calling for a national wolf recovery plan.

Such a plan would help ensure a lasting future for wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies and provide a needed boost for wolf recovery and management efforts in the Southwest, Northeast and Pacific Northwest.

Help support this forward-looking effort to protect the gray wolf's important part in America. Sign our petition to send your personalized comments to Dale Hall, head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Computer problems

My computer broke down yesterday, so I'm back to my old Windows 98 machine. This is gonna slow me down as far as posting new wood-burnings since I can't hook up my new scanner or digital camera to it. And my old scanner for this pc is packed up
and put away, so I'll have to get it out again.
Maybe I'll scan some recent drawings with it, but I'm just too irritable about the whole situation right now, so I'm just gonna finish a couple pieces (the Idun woodburning I finished coloring, also I did a wood-burning from one of my drawings of Freyja) and I'll just draw some more and chill out. Hopefully I'll be able to get my XP machine working again soon. Howl at ya later!

Save Yellowstone Area Wolves

Two Wolves

From Defenders of Wildlife:

It's happened. The Fish & Wildlife Service has made it easier to kill wolves in the Greater Yellowstone and Northern Rockies region -- even while they remain protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Take action now. Tell Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne that this rule change is unacceptable.

Also take action at the Defenders of Wildlife site: click here.

Tiny Chakram Wood-burning


Xena's chakram I did a few weeks back, I would say it's about the size of a quarter. This was then painted with gold & silver ink, then varnished. This was done on a little laser-cut cut piece I found at Michael's that I thought would be perfect to make a Xena chakram pendant with; there were a couple other pieces along with this, larger ones, but this was the best one of two I made (one got broken)

This piece is NOT for sale since it did not turn out as good as I wanted because of the watercolor.

Stop Wolf Killing in the Northern Rockies!



After more than a decade of conservation efforts and millions of federal dollars, wolves are finally returning to the northern Rockies.

Now, the Bush administration plans to remove wolves from the Endangered Species List and allow the states of Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana to wipe out nearly 80 percent of all the wolves remaining in the Northern Rockies!

The Wyoming Plan allows anyone to kill any wolf that wanders outside a small area in the northwest corner of the state. The plan would even target animals that live for most of the year in Yellowstone National Park but only wander out in the winter in search of food.

Tell Congress to oppose the Bush administration’s plans and make sure wolves are protected in the northern Rockies!
