It is all ready for the pieces of art I have yet to create and glue in. I am enjoying the process of making a space for things to come instead of wanting to start and complete the project right away.
The cover is made of felt with the altered photo of Emmitt I created last week in photoshop sewn on the front.
Some completed pages...
Here are the last two pages of my book. I created a little polka dot envelope to put small mementos into.
I am excited to see what I will create this Spring/Summer to finish off this book. I will keep you posted. :)

He is a beautiful French Bulldog from San Diego.
blog and an Etsy Shop that tell of all of Henri's adventures and showcase Liz's art. Liz and Henri were sweet enough to purchase one of my crocheted pug finger puppets and documented the homecoming.
Green Henri. He is going to live in my office and inspire me everyday. Don't you think he will be a great friend for Emmitt when he is riding around in his spaceship?
Speaking of Emmitt in his spaceship, I was inspired by two of my favorite bloggers, Abby Creek Art and Art Dog Blog, to try and create a digital painting of Emmitt. I used his spaceship photo and created the painting above. You must check out the beautiful digital paintings Rebecca of Art Paw creates using your own photos. Her work is amazing!

Diana today. She found my pug art in a Treasury List on Etsy this morning. This is a huge compliment since it is a listing of people's favorites that they submit to Etsy. What a fun way to start the day.
I also had so much fun making cards yesterday that I also made a black and fawn pug card. I am not sure where all of these pugs are going, but they are having a great time!
Speaking of journeys, every morning after breakfast, Emmitt follows me up to the office and licks his nose with joy. I think it is the favorite time of the day for both of us. After a few minutes he goes under my art table, behind the little space heater and licks his nose. I tease him that he is in his spaceship ready to take off on an adventure. Here he is this morning...

Both cards fold and open from the side and can stand up by themselves on 4 tires or feet.
I cannot wait to see what we make next week!
