On December 29, 2020 I told a blog (opened in new screen) that I would start a new hobby project. I wanted to recreate my dog Joep with a paper mache dog, which I was going to cover with diamond painting stones.
Something I had not done before, because to date I made only ordinary diamond paintings (opens in new screen).
On January 16, 2021 I finally started and had all the materials I needed for it.. Especially a lot of white stones 😉 On February 17, 2021 he was finally ready, so I worked on it for exactly a month. Sometimes in the evenings, but more often on weekends.
In total I used about 19,000 stones, this I counted n.a.v. the number of bags I ordered for this.
As you are used to from me, below I will show you how I started and how he eventually became. I am completely in love with it and I am so happy that I have decided to imitate my dear Joepie in this way and thus always keep as a memory. Joepie is now almost 12 years old, so not super young anymore. A Jack Russell can get old, so I expect to be able to enjoy him for another four years and maybe even longer.

This is Joep and I used this picture as an example in inspiration to imitate it.
In this picture he is 3 years old, so another nice young Joepie 😉
In the meantime, he is a little grayer, but not very. He is still very busy sometimes, but also takes more and more his rest moments and hours of walking he doesn't always like that anymore.
He is fundamentally healthy, has never been wrong and I hope it stays that way of course!
