Happy Friday, Friends! Thanks for stopping by!
So today marks day four of puppy sitting, and this little girl is definitely keeping me on my toes. In between keeping her entertained and keeping her out of trouble, cleaning up puppy messes, and acting as a human chew toy, I am not getting much else done.
My word, what a bundle of energy a puppy is. She is so tiny, and so quick. It’s hard for me to keep up. Thank goodness for nap time.
My sweet Crissy is patient, but I think she’s ready for the puppy to go home. All Annie wants to do is bite and nip and climb and jump and attack… and Crissy and I, well…. we would prefer quiet time.😀
As busy as it’s been, I do have a project to share today. A quick and easy gift idea and tutorial, made for the Therm O Web blog.
While cruising through my local dollar store, I came across a package of memo pads that I thought would make great little gifts. And at 8 pads for a dollar, the price just can’t be beat. The long, skinny shape of these seemed perfect for grocery lists. So I went with a food theme, using the adorable Photo Play Paper foodie collection, Fresh Picked.
It’s such an easy project. Just cut papers to the size of your memo pad or notebook, with a little bit extra to wrap over the top. Then add a few word strips and embellishments, and tie them up with string.
I’ve got a full step-by-step tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Time to get back to that puppy! Have a great weekend, everyone!
