Corset Hair

I saw someone pinned a similar hairdo, and I loved it, so here's my version with my beautiful little model, Madi.

The trick is getting them even!!!

Crayon on Canvas - Part 3

Here is the other leftover crayon piece I did. This one has a fall theme, which is nice, because fall is my favorite season.

See original post for instructions. Happy melting! Stay tuned one more time for my final melted crayon art piece, with a Halloween theme. Gotta use those leftover black, silver, and greys!
Crayon on Canvas - Part 2

With the leftover crayons from my last project, I have created new crayon on canvas art! These are gifts for my kids' teachers for teacher appreciation week. What a great piece to put in a classroom!

For instructions look back to the previous post, only this time I made it with blues and purples, added an extra butterfly, and some additional flowers I had. It looks like a field of lavender to me. Stay tuned for the next one!

Birthday Pup-Cakes

Make your dog SUPER happy on his birthday!

This treat is made of dog-healthy ingredients:
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 6oz jar chicken flavored baby food**
1 cup shredded carrots
1/3 cup spun honey
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/2 package low-fat cream cheese (neufchatel cheese)
1 small container vanilla greek yogurt (buy the one with the least sugar)
1 tsp vanilla

Mix together flour and baking soda, then add rest of ingredients. Mine made enough for 4 jumbo muffins (the tin with 6 slots for making giant cupcakes) Of course, you could make smaller ones if you have a smaller pup, but my giant dog eats giant cakes.

Bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes until set and toothpick comes out clean. While the cakes cool, blend frosting ingredients. Top with small dog treat or bone.

**My dog dislikes peanut butter, but the original recipe I found called for 1/4 cup peanut butter instead of baby food.

Keep refrigerated
