Really hot here

My Huskies are really feeling the hot weather. They have two fans going which they love to lay in front of. They also have a swimming pool which they wil not go in but think of as their giant water bowl! Olivia and Daisy...

I made them some frozen "pup-scicles" which they loved.
I used silicone cupcake cups but anything will do that will hold the mixture -like empty yogurt cups. I had these ingredients on hand so this is what I used but lots of substitutions can be made or fruits added, like blueberries, bananas ec. I was thinking of trying canned pumpkin and canned salmon next!

One container of fruited yogurt mixed with a small amount of water
Milk bone - for center stick
Small spoons of peanut butter
You can add stuff like blueberries and peanuts too

spoon in a layer of yogurt, add milk bone treat standing in center
add small dollops of peanut butter
More yogurt to fill up
Put in freezer. 
If using silicone cups.
You will need to place them in a container 
so they to hold their shape in the freezer.

Hope your doggies enjoy!

It finally got warm?

I have discovered some people who paint furniture and  the color is the layers it’s the flower One person that I love the most is Debbie Beard She uses and sells this paint called DIY paint - a natural clay paint. The best thing is it’s incredibly bright beautiful colors each one I adore AND you don’t have to prime or prepare any surface just paint it right on. Any surface- wood metal and much more. Love that painful step of sanding out of the way.

Unicorn Jewelry Box Project

I was looking at unicorn jewelry boxes as a Christmas present for Zora. They were all basically the same and plastic. So I remembered that I had gotten an older jewelry box on one of my Vintage Lindy Lou shopping trips that I was at some point going to upcycle. It is wood with a paper covering glued on.also a couple weird snaps that at one time attached something. After finally prying those off I gave it about 3 coats of gesso. I sponged different colors on for a background. I drew out designs on paper, then traced them onto the box.I added glitter, gold paint and jewels at the end. I painted Zora's name and them covered with glitter and Mod Podge. It was fun to make with all the glitter and shiny stuff!

All ready to go!
