She's Been Crafty - Part Two

Mommie has been working on another idea from Cindy's blog. Her friend gave her all the pieces for her birthday to make this beautiful tray. The project uses a picture frame (preferably vintage), paint, Rub 'n Buff to distress the edges, drawer knobs for the feet and then pretty much anything you want to use to decorate the inside.

Well, that is all for now. Mommie has got to quit playing around and get back to homework.

She's Been Crafty

Mommie made this sweet little sign for Auntie Marlynn to welcome her guests to Thanksgiving dinner.

Originially, she saw the idea on Cindy's blog. It turned out to be pretty easy. First, she used painters tape to cover the areas where she did not want paint. Second, sprayed it with primer (Krylon). So let me as you this question "does primer paint only come in grey"? Then, she sprayed it with chalkboard paint (also by Krylon). It took four coats of the caulkboard paint to cover the tray. If you have never used caulkboard paint, you paint one coat in one direction and the second in the other. Beautiful!

Since we're on the subject of caulkboard paint, hop on over to our friend Korie's blog and she what she did with a $2 mirror. Lovie!

What Happens at Auntie's, Stays at Auntie's

So, Mom and Dad where in Philadelphia for a couple of days and I stayed at my Auntie Marlynn's. If you are interested in what I have been up to, at least the published version of our story, hop over to Auntie's blog.

In Philadelphia, Mom and Dad came across a couple of great doggie/kitty stores. Doggie Style and BONeJour. From Doggie Style, they brought back for me a t-shirt shaped cookie, Tator-the dog loving gator and a pink piggy. I first thought Mom was going to keep piggy for herself.

But, she gave him up and within the first five minutes, he was missing an eye. Hey, he has two.

(Check it out, I think his ears are bigger than mine! Whatcha think?)

Fortunately, Mom found her own pink piggy.

New Doo!

My people took me today for a little hair cut, nail clipping (normally, Auntie M clips my nails, but it is part of the package) and tooth brushing. Here is my before picture:

Lookie, my name is on the board welcoming me! They know I am a VIP (Very Important Puppy)!

Yes, I know I look good!
