It has become apparent over the last week that Emit hasn't been responding to the medicines the vet gave him last week. His stomach was so huge today, and his breathing very labored. His gums and tongue were white, his eyes so dull. We knew it was time. So we put our dear sweet boy to sleep tonight. We love him so much and will never ever forget him.
His waggy tail, thumping so vigorously with joy whenever we came home. His maniacal obsession with the ball. His total addiction to any kind of people food. His proprietary attitude towards any comfortable place to rest his head, whether it be the new couch, or a clean pile of laundry. His beautiful ears, whether raised at full attention in the "flying nun" pose or else just as soft strokable stress relievers. His beautiful fur, so thick and luxurious, especially around his neck, I could just dig my fingers in and knead him for hours. His beautiful eyes, so intelligent, so sensitive. These and so many other things...our beautiful boy. Rest in Peace Emit.

Jesse cooked a nice dinner, steak and pasta-here's Emit scarfing down some bread. He loves carbs! Not too bad for a doggie basically on his deathbed.
Ah Redbox! One of the greatest inventions of the 21st Century. We watched "Enchanted", "Nancy Drew", "August Rush", and then I watched "Atonement" and "Into the Wild". All really good movies. I balled at the end of "August Rush". That was truly such a great movie! Evan had so much faith, it amazed me.
Oh yeah, here are 2 necklaces I made for 2 of my nieces' birthdays.
A couple of ATC's I made awhile back.
I made 2 more decoupage boxes, one for my foster son and one for a co-worker's birthday. They requested either the color scheme or the specific paper, it's not necessarily my taste, but I love to make things for other people that tickle their fancy.
Did I mention it's spring break! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our 6 year anniversary is friday so I made dh this card. The second pic is a birthday gift for my niece, it's a sign for her bedroom door. I thought it turned out way cute. Our dog is still sick (maybe dying???) this week, and dh is seeking other employment, so prayers would totally be appreciated. Did I mention that I have had the most excruciating backache of my life this week too??? When it rains it pours! My back is actually getting better though, thank God. I was able to sleep through the night last night, finally, what a blessing that was.

My dear bubby and I at bonneville dam last saturday (our foster son took the pic)
My grandma and I last sunday
New paper bought with babysitting money from friday night
New card that I made for my oldest best friend, Tiffany!
More tags! They're just too fun and it was my first time using mini-eyelets!!!
A card for my grandma, who's been in and out of the hospital a lot lately!
My first "realistic" drawing. Drawing takes a lot of time! I have to go to art class with this autistic boy at school, so sometimes when I have a chance I do the assignments too. I was kind of proud of this, even though I accidently got creases in the paper.

For My Good Friend, April!
I found some of my favorite friendship quotes, as well as some new ones, on the web and printed them in different fonts on the tags which I then inked, and stamped, and then put eyelets on the big ones and then put cool fun fibers on all of them and tucked them all in the pocket!!! Here's to friendship, and here's the quotes that I used, a little gift to you. I'm all about good girl friends!!!
an old friend.–George
Two are better than one;
because they have a good
reward for their labor.
For if they fall, the
one will lift up his
fellow: but woe unto
him that is alone
when he falleth; for
he hath not another
to help him up.– Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.
of nature.– Ralph Waldo
I shot an arrow into the air,
I breathed a song into the air,
Long, long afterward, in an oak
"A friend is
one to whom
one may pour
out all the
of hands will
take and sift
it, keep what
is worth keeping
and with a
breath of kindness
blow the rest away."
