Completed 5d Project: Chipmunks Eating Corn

The Latest Finish – Chipmunks Eating Corn – Diamond Painting

This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

 

When I saw these Chipmunks Eating Corn I immediately thought it would be so cute in a dining area, or kitchen. I will say that the level of detail on the corn completely surprised me. This has 44 colors, and over 46,400 beads, making this very detailed. This  measures 27 inches x 19 inches (or 70cm x 50cm) and is the perfect size with the detail included.

The colors and the detail reminds me of summer corn, and this was just a lot of fun to work on. I started it November 23rd, and worked on it through the Thanksgiving weekend, then I worked on it a bit less while i focused on other projects, but began this past week, and managed to finish it one month from when I started it making the completion date 12/23/2018.

Now what color frame should I use?

sock-club-collageWhen I was young one of my favorite things to do was steal my father’s socks.

It also happens that socks make the perfect gift therefore I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give one reader a 6 month subscription to SockClub.

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Messy Mutts and Messy Cats

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Messy Mutts Silicone Dog Treat Maker and Messy Cats 2 in 1 Cuddler/Cat House

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Messy Mutts. This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.

Ever since I took over care of Meadow I have been much more aware of what she eats and have begun making her treats. The reason I have been making treats is knowing what is going into them and I love having them shaped like dog bones. When I recently received the Messy Mutts Silicone Dog Treat Maker, I was inspired to make some pumpkin based treats.

The Messy Mutts Silicone Dog Treat Maker can be used for baked treats or frozen treats, and are easy to pop the treats out. There are 8 bones and is freezer, microwave, dishwasher and oven safe (up to 446°F). In addition it is made of FDA approved silicone, is BPA Free. and is PVC Free.

Not to be left out are the cats, and they received a Messy Cats 2 in 1 Cat Cuddler/Cat House in a wonderful grey color. The thing that got my attention about this bed was the versatility in that I can collapse the top and make an open bed, or pop it up and make a cave for them to crawl into.

The Messy Cats 2 in 1 Cat Cuddler/Cat House features EVERFRESH probiotic technology that continuously provide natural, non-toxic odor control. As I mentioned above the 2 in 1 easily converts from bed to house with pop-up roof and also features a peekaboo entrance folds down to convert to traditional bed. The bed is made in a durable fabric and features a non-slip base that prevents shifting and keeps bed in place on carpet or tile. 

Each of these products were perfect for their intended purpose, and each pet loved the treats and comfort that the products provided. If you are looking for gifts for your furry friends be sure to check out Messy Mutts!

Brush Pen Lettering Practicing Book Review

Brush Pen Lettering Practice Book: Modern Caligraphy Drills, Measured Guidlines and Practice Shees to Perfect Your Basic Strokes, Letterforms and Words Review + Giveaway

As much as I love blogging there is another thing I love to do – write and send cards to loved ones, especially during the holidays when I am sending cards to loved ones.

I believe that the art of handwriting is slowly being eliminated from the skills people hold. Instead of being able to do clean brush lettering, people strive to have the most words typed from their smart phones.

Each year I write cards and notes, and each year I strive to make my handwriting better. I am always looking for books and step-by-step instructions to extend those skills. When I recently I received a copy of Brush Pen Lettering Practice Book: Modern Calligraphy Drills, Measured Guidelines, and Practice Sheets to Perfect Your Basic Strokes, Letterforms and Words by Grace Song for review I was excited to perfect my abilities for future cards with worksheets.

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Scratch and Draw Patterns

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Scratch & Create – Scratch and Draw Patterns

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of The Quatro Group. This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are mine.

It has been brought to my attention that while I am talented in certain areas, drawing is not one of them. I am always trying to expand my hand and learn to draw, so when I saw the Scratch & Create: Scratch and Draw Patterns Book I was intrigued.

The Scratch & Create: Scratch and Draw Patterns Book is a 20 page book that has an image on one side, and a scratchable surface on the other side in which you “scratch” the image. There are spirals, tangles, and geometric patterns that have simple lines and shapes. The illustration on the facing scratch-off page gets scratched off with the specialized stylus tool to reveal a contrasting background to the color on the page.

Each page is perforated so you may keep or gift your image. I will say if you are looking for an easy image to create, this book may not be for you – it is for more advanced drawers but that is not to say it is difficult, just takes more a drawing hand. If you have a fan of drawing in your life this would be a great gift to challenge and expand their abilities.

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: goDog Holiday Collection Dragon

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: goDog Holiday Collection Dragon

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Worldwise/goDog This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.

If there is a word or two I would use to describe Meadow, it would have to be toy destroyer. After I moved into the house with Meadow and began looking around I saw a variable graveyard of chewed toys. From what I can tell she likes to rip the insides out, death by extreme chewing.

In the course of the past couple months I have learned that having durable chew toys is one of the most important things I can provide for her. When I saw the goDog Holiday Collection Dragon with Chew Guard Technology. With the manufacturing technology Chew Guard adds a super tough durable liner to toys making it much more difficult for dogs like Meadow to chew through it.

Since I am a Game of Thrones fan, I knew that I would love having the dragon, and as it turns out it is Meadow first dragon.

Each seam is diuble stitched and reinforced which gives added toughness when dogs get playing.

The jury is still out on long-term sustainability but so far it is in one piece, which is already a win in my house and for Meadow.
