DIY Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Monday, November 30th, 2009



Hope everyone here in the states had a good Thanksgiving weekend! I got to try a few projects I’ve been really meaning to do, while the hubby pretty much stayed glued to his Xbox. All in all a win win! Anyway, here is one said project, homemade dog treats! A friend sent me the recipe and it couldn’t be easier, just mix, roll, cut and bake! I used some pie crust cutters I got for my birthday and they were the perfect size for little Tula. One word of advice thougth, you can really taste the baking powder so when I do this next time I’m going to try to use less and see how they work out.

Also, I had to postpone the last Friday’s surprise, fingers crossed for this week!

I’m loving all of these white porcelin pieces. Just when I think I’ve seen enough I come across another one I just can’t live without. I think the feathers would make the sweetest tree ornaments and the keys would make a thoughtful gift to newlyweds. Personly, I think all of these would be the perfect gift for me! Hee hee! 😉 Let’s hope the hubby reads this post!

*I’ll be taking the day off from blogging tomorrow to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday with my family. To all you other states-men, I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing holiday. To everyone else, I hope you have a fantastic rest of your week and I will see you all back here Friday. I’ve got an exciting post to share with all of you so be sure to check back. Also, if you haven’t already, don’t forget to enter the giveaway for Hello!Lucky holiday cards! xoxo

Linea Paper Garland

Ok, how beatiful are these paper garlands?! I spotted Lenia on Elephanitne last week and fell in love, so much prettiness! Who knew that thread and little circles of recycled paper could be so fantastically stunning? These would make for some truly spectacular gift ribbon or tree garland. I think I’m equally in love with the photographs, they’re gorgeous! See more garlands and purchase them here on Etsy.
