St. Patrick Day Bows using the Bowdabra

So I have another bow tutorial for you guys today. I really like bows. But this tutorial is a little different, because it uses a bow maker, instead of me trying to do it all by hand. About a week and a half ago I was given a mini Bowdabra bow making kit, and it pretty much changed the way I make bows. Once and a while I will probably still sew a bow or just try something new to see if I can, but for no-sew bows, a bow maker is the way to go. It’s fast, easy, and gives you a polished look that hot glue just doesn’t seem to do.

Pumpkin Oat Dog Treats

I know pumpkin season is pretty much over, and that makes me sad, but the good side is that stores are putting their left over stock on great sales. While at Target last week I found 20oz cans on sale for $1.41, and I had to buy a few. Not only does my family love pumpkin, but so does my dog. Now I’m left with too many ideas on what to do with all this pumpkin. Of course pie, bread, and cake make the cut, but I can’t leave my Max out of the deliciousness. With Valentine’s day coming up tomorrow I thought it would be a great time to make some heart shaped treats and try out a new recipe.

Five ways to keep your pets active when you’re not

With warm weather on its way everyone seems to be talking about exercise recently. For those of you who love a good run that’s great, but I, myself, personally… don’t.

DIY flavored wooden chew sticks

I always have a lot of fruit in my house, but we don’t always eat in in time. So when it starts to get a little over-ripe, I’m always looking for something to do with it before it goes bad completely. It’s usually smoothies, or milkshakes, but today, I decided to try making my own fruit flavored wood chew sticks. You can buy these at the pet store, but it’s so easy to make your own, and a great way to use up those last few berries.
