Hi,
There must be something wrong with the comments section, if you see my comment twice, I'm sorry in advance.
Overall, I think your blog is good with everything stay consistent and well documented. I would recommend two things for you to improve on. First, try to avoid scribbling on your drawings, if it happens, you might want to do another one. Second, some of the sketches has picture behind it that I can see. They are a little bit distracting.
Good job!

Darien-
Nice post! I like many of your ideas. They really have a wide variety to them. I especially like the "Woof Pack"! It reminds me of the Hangover- Wolf Pack. My dog would probably not know what to do if she was wearing something, but that's just her. :) The "snow darts" are awesome! I would love using those!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Darien-
Good ideas and post. Possibly looking for more a blog paragraph explaining the ideas and techniques used. The pictures are good, but confused on how you came up with them. Someone not in the class would have a hard time following your though process.
Clean up the pictures (as said before).
Some very feasible ideas in there. Keep that creativity flowing!
