I Made my Friend Cry

I seem to be making a habit of making my friends cry lately.

I was finally able to deliver a Christmas present to one of my closest friends and she bawled like a baby.

Below is Princess, the little dog I babysit once in a while. I painted the little dog's picture for my friend as a Christmas present because Princess is the joy of her life.

It's a pretty good likeness of the little monster. But I have to admit, my deteriorating eyesight made it hard to get the details right. I'm still saving my pennies for that eye surgery. Maybe I can get my eyes fixed in 2008.

Monday: What's on your plate for 2008?

Oh, that's such a lovely portrait. The little tyke has got such melt-your-heart eyes :)

Thanks, Rochita. She's a cute little mop--and very intelligent. My friend travels much more than I do so I let her stay with me when I can.

It's lovely, Maria. What a lovely gift!

Thanks, Mar. My friend literally has everything she wants so it's always hard to buy for her. When I came up with the portrait idea I knew it was the perfect gift.
