This Crafty Bachelorette had an itchin' to do something crafty this evening. I've been wanting to make Tippy a little container that I can keep her treats in so I went to Wal-Mart and picked up this stainless steel canister for 7 bucks.

Then I made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and strolled through their scrap booking section and came home and created this!
I was going to line the paws all the way around the entire canister but I thought that having the 7 paws on the top and 7 on the bottom gave it a bit of a modern, less-cluttered look.

So what does Tippy think of her new treat jar?

I think she likes it :-)

If you're wondering what Tippy's treat du jour is.......Pup-Peronis, of course! Even though they sell the "lean" recipe, I buy her the original because I keep telling her she's too skinny and needs some more junk in her trunk.

Totally off the Tippy's a view of the Methodist Church from my parent's back deck while the sun was setting. The vivid colors didn't show up as good and the power lines are a bit of an eye sore but I still thought it was a neat pic!

The Office Quote of the Day:
My philosophy is basically this and this is something that I live by and I always have and I always will. Don't ever, for any reason, do anything to anyone for any reason ever, no matter what, no matter where, or who, or who you are with, or, or where you are going, or, or where you've been...ever. For any reason whatsoever...Sometimes I'll start a sentence and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Like an improv conversation. An "improversation."

Tippy Tuesday

I just can't get enough of pictures of Baby Tippy. Come on now, for those of you that actually thinks she's ugly, you gotta admit.....she's pretty damn cute here.

My latest purchase...

I've been on a search for barstools. I knew exactly what I was looking for.....seagrass barstools with a back on them. After searching every website I could think of, the only website I found them on was Pottery Barn and you can only imagine the pretty price tag on those babies. One day I was in Louisville for work and killing some time so I browsed World Market and found the exact barstools I was looking for! Since I have to think long and hard about every purchase I make, I didn't purchase them right away. Then when I finally decided to buy them (with my birthday money), they were out of stock. So I put my name on their "waiting list" and they called me about a month later. I am grateful to my sister that she lives in Louisville and was able to go pick them up for me within the 48 hour holding period. I am oh-so-happy with them and not regretting them at all! Did I mention they're really comfy too?!?

The Office Quote of the Day:
So that is why I have to leave at five on Tuesdays, it's to pick up my little sisters from school. We're really right. We're like the Kardashians.

Tippy Tuesday

I told Tippy to pose with her bone......she thought I meant for her to give me her "sexy pose".

Tippy Tuesday

Tippy usually bathes in the bath tub so she didn't quite know what to think about bathing in the kitchen sink!

My first trip to IKEA

A couple of weeks ago, I took my first trip to IKEA. Will someone please tell me why I didn't go to IKEA sooner??? Holy moly! That place was uh-mazing! I believe it was one of the best experiences I've ever had in my life. I definitely felt like a kid in a candy store. Thank heavens I was on a mission and knew exactly what I wanted to get up there or I probably would have gone on a massive spending spree. Trust me, I've already started my shopping list for my next trip.

This is why I took the trip to get this shelf.

My craft room is still a disaster and I wanted something that could help me organize my craft stuff. I found these baskets and file boxes too in their fabulous storage and organization department. I'm not a big basket person but I liked how these looked kinda modern. I think I'm going to paint the room a fun lime green color so the shelf will stand out a little more. I debated back and forth between this light finish or the brown/black finish. Of course my indecisive self is now wishing I got the other finish. Oh well, I can always paint!

The Office Quote of the Day:
Pam: (about the new copier) It'll be ready soon.
Kevin: Soon could mean anything. Soon could be three weeks.
Pam: Is that what soon means to you?
Kevin: Sometimes.
Pam: Then come back soon.

A little bathroom project....

Let me just say that I hate clutter. I like for everything to have a home and not have things just laying around. When it comes to bathroom necessities, I will agree that a bathroom looks better when things are put away but I like to have them right there when I need them. Since there is no way that I could have them just sitting around the sink, I had to buy a container that they could call home. I looked and looked and looked and finally found this at Bed Bath & Beyond. I thought it had a bit of a masculine and plain look to it but I knew I could change that. :)

From drab.....

to FAB!

Isn't it amazing what a little bit of furry zebra print ribbon can do? I love how it kinda mimics my toothbrush holder which is a tone on tone black zebra print.

Before I got started on this little project, I walked out of my craft room with my glue gun and apparently Tippy thought it was some device that I was going to use to paint her nails or something because she ran off with her tail tucked between her legs and hid behind the TV and plant stand.....a place where she's never hidden before. I had to love on her for a good 5 or 10 minutes and convince her that I wasn't going to do a cosmetic procedure on her.

Tippy Tuesday

Whew....having Monday off for the holiday ALMOST made me forget about Tippy Tuesday. Never fear, I remembered late Monday night and dug out another picture from my Tippy archives.

So anytime Tippy wants my attention, she assumes this position....either up against the back of the couch or flat on her back. Poor deprived.
