Artsy Fartsy Friday

OHMY DOG! This new computer is PAWESOME! I'm going to dedicate a post to it next week! I'm leaving it on the desk for now because I'm trying to get used to all features of a laptop before I move it around the house. The keyboard is very different. Mom has trouble with the keyboard, too so I don't think it's because of my paws.
This Artsy Fartsy Friday has a teacher theme because they're gifts for Aunt Nikki who graduated from teacher college last weekend. She had a party with lots of cheese and other goodies and I couldn't go because it was at her church and then Mom and Dad didn't bring us any cheese! Can you believe that? Anyway, Mom made some stuff for Aunt Nikki to use while she's a teacher. The first one Mom cross stitched a design and then put it on a tote bag so Aunt Nikki can carry stuff in it.





































Here's a closeup of the design. Mom says those rulers were apin in the butt to do. If you're wondering if 1 inch actualy equaled 1 inch, it doesn't. Mom checked that, it's about 1/4 in short.






































Next Mom made Aunt Nikki one of her Pointillism pieces to hang up in her classroom. She framed it for her so it will stay nice and of course I "helped." (Why is it, every time I type the word "help" those quotes are around it? I thought it was our old computer that was doing that, but I'm on the new one!)



































Hope you enjoyed this Artsy Fartsy Friday. Don't forget this weekend is Mother's Day. Be sure to give your Mom's and Grandma's big hugs and kisses. I'm going to let my Mom sleep in on Saturday since Dad has to work. I think that's a good enough gift (and I'll hopefully get to play with the new computer some more while she's sleeping).

OH! And everybody keep their paws crossed that Kyle does good this weekend. Last weekend he drove the Pedigree car and all that bad stuff happened. That's more proof he should just keep M&Ms on his car for all races.

Have a great weekend!!

What thoughtful gifts! Any new teacher would be honored to have them! Mom grumbles when she has to use Dad's laptop. Her paws are too big for the keyboard and she makes lots of mistakes.
