1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Pet Cremains on: May 13, 2019 06:37:40 PM
Thank you all, very, very much for the condolences and suggestions.  They are greatly appreciated.  The pinch of ashes incorporated into something is a sweet idea.  Maybe a pinch in resin, on top of a box made from our wood, with something engraved.  DH wants a tattoo.
This coming weekend is DS1's graduation, and the following weekend is his party.  I will be occupied with all the details for those (do we all have appripriate outfits, cleaned and ironed, where are our dress shoes, no a brown left doesn't match a navy right, is everything ordered, invitations mailedOMGnotYet, etc) but will keep revisiting this thread and rereading the ideas.  DH is already searching online sites for another dog.  Although there is a huge emptiness, it is too soon for a replacement pet.

This afternoon we will be saying good-bye to our beloved dog, Zena.  She has endured worsening eye issues (IOP - blindness) and we don't want her to continue suffering.  Her pain meds no longer seem to work.  Although my heart is breaking and we will miss her terribly, we must think of her comfort and well being.  I hate that I could not cure her issues or be a better petmommy.  Zena deserves a long, happy life - as do all pets.  To those of you who have lost a furbaby,  my deepest sympathies.  They are truly family.

DH refuses to have Zena buried on our land, outside in the elements.  It's touching of my big beefy husband to insist that she be kept inside, safe and warm and dry.  Zena will be cremated.  My crafty question is about her cremains,  What sort of container?  I want to make something but mentally am mush and cannot think beyond Ziplock baggies and Tupperware.  Recently we've had trees come down and I'd love something from their wood, perhaps inscribed with a wood burner .... Tips and suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thank you all for the kind words and congrats on DS1's graduation, and the Twinkies!  After rolling/tying all those Twinkies, I can say that I'm Twinkied out right now, but glad they were on sale. 

Everyone has been busy in here!  Red, your dolly is lovely.  pinokeeo, you've created a splendid bathroom.  We have the same lav and it is so much easier to clean around the base without those nooks and crannies.

Kidlet (DS1) is graduating and I'm trying to prepare for his party.  I've been wrapping Twinkies in colored paper and tying with curling ribbon, to make makeshift edible diplomas.  Ho-Hos would look better since the cake is rolled like an actual diploma, but Kidlet isn't a fan of chocolate.  He isn't into fanfare and dreads the forthcoming festivities.  That's quite all right; he'll graduate and WE'll party!

The shirt quilt is an amazing treasure. 

Those binder rings are brilliant for storing your washi tapes!  Very clever.

BBM, the 4square chain idea is inspiring.   I think I'll start playing with my pile of itty bitty pieces.  Thanks for the idea!

I found out that the fund raiser for the lady with cancer raised over $5,000.  Woohoo!  Hopefully one day soon that dreaded "C" word will be eradicated.

JS, I love it when people come together to help a family like that.  It can seem absolutely hopeless for the people it is happening to.  It's amazing what we all can do to help.

I completely agree.  Little acts of kindness can make a phenomenal difference.  I have not heard how much money was raised but hope it will let the lady breathe a bit easier when it comes to her bills.
