I’ve been re-doing my home office recently and am finally to the fun part: accessories! These easy DIY cork pencil cups are right up my alley — and they’re made from recycled aluminum cans, too! So, now you can stay organized, show off your dog love, and be all green ‘n’ stuff. That’s a whole lot of WIN.
Pick your favorite breed, grab some cork, and then head over to The 3 Rs Blog for the full tutorial!
I’m super excited to share a very special Dog-I-Y with you today! Serena from Pretty Fluffy has been hard at work, along with Sarah from Chic Sprinkles, putting together an amazing recipe book for dogs called 52 Weeks of Treats. It is chock full of unique and healthy recipes — not to mention gorgeous photos — and is something every person who loves to spoil their dog should own!
You may recall that one of the items on my 13 Project list was to make and donate fleece blankets to a local rescue. Well, I finally sat down over the weekend and got started making these cozy little blankets. I’m only about halfway through the 25 I plan on donating to Friends of Animals Utah, but trust me when I say that these are insanely easy!! If you can use scissors, you can make these. Heck, get some friends together and make a night of it! Your local shelter animals will thank you. Interested? Let’s get started!
After complaints from my husband that our dogs’ treats were taking over our pantry (it’s kinda true), I decided it was high time to do something about all those boxes and bags of goodies. I knew I wanted treat jars that looked good — something I could proudly display on my counter — and didn’t cost a lot. With those two rules in place, I ultimately decided to just get a bit crafty and make my own. And you know what? These DIY etched glass treat jars are awesome! And easy! And totally customizable! Wanna make your own? I’ll show you!
With a generous nod to those animal pillows from Areaware (which we LOVE), artist and blogger Kim from Yellow Brick Home created a tutorial for those of us wanting photo pillows of our own precious pets. I know I would definitely prefer a snuggly Wrigley or Smash pillow to a random dog (no matter how cute). If you’re in the same boat and eager to see your pooch in pillow form, hit up Yellow Brick Home for the full how-to. While you’re at it, check out her custom pet portrait shop, too!
