101 Uses for Things I Destroy

1.  Greeting Cards

Dad got mom this really nice book for her birthday

Well, it started out really nice

But then I decided to sample the binding

It was filled with beautiful photographs of wildflowers

Mom particularly liked the irises

So instead of just putting the partially-chewed book into the recycling bin, mom decided to keep it and use the pages in her crafty making.

Her first project was making a birthday card for Kay.
Kay loves flowers too.

She cut the photograph to size

and pasted it on a blank card

The finished product

The inside of the card

Tune in next week to see what else mom can make from what's left of her book

I have no remorse


  1. Your Mom is really talented!! Think how helpful you can be by destroying other stuff!!! Can we come help? After we're done at your house we could all teleport over to ours!!

  2. It's so nice of you to help your mom expand her creative horizons!


  3. How beautiful! He must have been attracted by the smell of the glue in the binding.


  4. You're lucky your mom has lots of the smarticals!

  7. Kudos to your Mom! Beautiful, creative, and "green".

  8. BOL Garth we loved that post. You made us smile. Have a great Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. You shouldn't really have any remorse, you are pushing your Momma's creative boundaries!! BOL!

  10. Hmmmm. DO books taste good? Never tried them, but there's always a first time.

  11. Oy have a talented and forgiving mother! Books are sacred around here, we think we will not sample your kind of treats. Teka says she will stick to stealing toast from the breakfast table.


  12. Well your mum is very resourceful taking a not so positive action and turning it into something beautiful. YOu were just getting your mum to think outside the box!! Pretty card :)

  13. Oh that's very talented! My momma likes to make cards and stuff too. She's even made books of pictures of yours truly, the kitties, Cinderella, and ALL the foster dogs. If I chewed any of them, I'd be in BIG BIG TROUBLE!

  14. Garth, you is the most helpful dog I knows. You inspire your mama's creativities on a daily basis, I is sure!


  15. Oh Garth!! How could you!!... Books are not for eating. Although, I have to admit, your mom made a good thing of a bad situation. Lovely card she made. Good idea for old books who are chewed by naughty puppies..... Think I'll have a try on one, our mom has lots and lots of books. They might be yummy.....

  16. Your mom is clever. You should help her some more bol

    love & wags,

  17. You shouldn't feel any remorse, Garth, because you got your human's creative juices flowing! That card is what I call a success story! Well done! You deserve a cookie! Go ahead and grab one from the jar while your human is busy making another card! Hurry!
