About the Event

Welcome to Craft & Canvas—Where you make it and take it home with you.

I had a black lab once. Her name was Jordan. Yes, after Michael Jordan. Because when she was hungry, she would spin 360 degrees and plant her face in her bowl, much like his jumpshot through the rim. When she died, I was torn to pieces. I have not owned a dog since then. Cats yes, no dogs. I am now ready, though.

You can see from the picture she lived from 1994-2007. I made this memorial stone several years later. She was cremated when she died. I received her ashes in a tall white box. They sat on my bookshelf for several years. I didn't know quite what to do with them. So they moved with me to 3 different homes. I thought of sprinkling them in all of her favorite places like the trail, the pond, the river, but it didn't make me happy. I wanted something to keep with me. Finally, one day it came to me. A stepping stone type memorial. I mixed her ashes in with the cement. I never put the stone in the ground because I move too often. But I bring it with me and it sits in a place of importance and I smile when I look at it. She would have liked to step her paws right in that cement.

Bring your ashes that you don't know quite what to do with. Make your own mosaic stone.
