If you follow my blog, or even if you have just glanced in the sidebar, you’ll know I adore my dog! And I adore my sister’s dog Sadie too. I am a total animal lover, and I have to say until recently, I have always been a crazy cat lady. But now thanks to our little iggies I am a crazy dog lady too! For those of you who don’t believe in love at first sight, you just haven’t met the right dog yet. This dog is my heart, and no matter what type of day I am having, just having him here with me makes me happy! The other day I was taking pictures of my jewelry magnets in my bedroom at my parent’s house. The dogs love this room because the bed is right up against the window and it is warm and sunny all day. It is their favorite spot! As I was snapping my product pics, totally caught up in the rush of everything that needed to be done that day, I happened to glance over and see Beaureguard and Sadie happily snoozing in the sun. It completely melted me! I thought for sure they would move the second they spotted me taking pics, but they were totally chill and did not even notice the intrusion. Lucky me! It’s these little moments that I love so much! They captivate you and remind you to slow down a bit, relish the sunshine, know you are blessed by those you love, and remember that life truly is above all else, absolutely beautiful!

Beaureguard and my mom’s dog Lily totally loved them as you can see. Beau’s sister Sadie even joined in and she’s pretty picky sometimes. These are a great treat! They are wholesome, natural and simple. Something I can feel good about indulging the pups with! I know I will be trying more recipes soon for my four legged babies.

Every year Daryl and I send out Christmas cards to all of our family and friends. This year Beauregard is getting his first taste of family stardom and will be gracing the front of our holiday card as his kitty bros have in the past, much to their relief i’m sure. He was a great sport, and makes a fantastic model! I could only choose one for the card, but there were so many cute ones of him and his sister Sadie, I couldn’t help but share them with you all. I’ll share the cards with you all when I get them in the mail. Happy Friday everyone!

Hello there! Welcome to day ten of my 12 Days of Handmade Gifts. Today I am going to show you how to make fantastic gifts for your favorite furry friends. There is a dog toy made from a felted sweater, and kitty toys filled with fragrant catnip. Your pets are sure to love them!

We’ll start with the cat toys:

What You Need:

*Fabric scraps

*Feather boa

*Catnip

IMG 5411 687x600 12 Days of Handmade Gifts  DIY Pet Toys

IMG 5412 538x600 12 Days of Handmade Gifts  DIY Pet Toys

IMG 5418 800x585 12 Days of Handmade Gifts  DIY Pet Toys

First cut your scraps to a size you like. I made mine around 3×4″. Next, with right sides together sew up one long side, long the top, and then back down the other side leaving the bottom open. Turn the piece right side out. Fold in the top into the inside about a half an inch. Fill the little sack with catnip until about an inch from the top. Now cut a length of your boa off and insert one end into the bottom of your catnip filled sack. Then sew the end closed about an eighth inch from the edge. And you are finished. Easy right, and your cat will flip for these. As you can see, our cat Titus couldn’t wait for Christmas for his.

Now for the doggie toy:

What You Need:

*Old 100% Wool Sweater

*Craft Felt

*squeaker

*Pattern(please excuse the quality, my scanner is broken, so I had to take a pic of the pattern, I’ll update it when I get my new printer next week)

The first thing you want to do is felt your sweater by washing it in hot water. It will shrink a lot and become thick and lose a lot of stretch. Now cut the body of the kitty monster out of the main sweater. Cut strips of the sleeves for arms and legs, and the eyes and nose from your craft felt. Stitch the eyes to the front body piece. You can stitch on the pupils of the eyes or use a permanent pen to mark them. Now stitch the nose down. Beginning at the nose with a small zigzag stitch and stitch a mouth. Now sandwich the squeaker, and the arms and legs in between the top and bottom body pieces and pin all around. Now stitch all the way around your kitty’s shape. Clip the excess threads and you are finished.

These toys are fun to make and a great and special alternative to store bought toys. They are a lot more economical too. I love how easy and fast these work up! I made a bunch in about an hour. And my pets love them! Beauregard couldn’t wait for his toy either. I’m a sucker for my fuzzy babies! I hope some of you try these out for your best pals. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for another fun holiday diy gift idea! until then…

Happy Crafting!

Beau and Roux’s Corner- DIY Martingale Collar

IMG 2228 599x600 Beau and Rouxs Corner  DIY Martingale Collar

Untitled 1 800x354 Beau and Rouxs Corner  DIY Martingale Collar

Today Beaureguard and I have a special DIY for you. I am going to show you how to make a martingale collar. These collars are used a lot in dog training. There are two parts to the collar, the collar neck piece and the control loop. The collar fits nicely around your dog’s neck when they are sitting or walking easy with you, and if they pull, the control loop tightens the collar around the neck. The tightening is mild and doesn’t hurt the dog like a chain training collar can. Martingale collars are fantastic for sight hounds(like my italian greyhound Beau), as well as any dog that has problems with backing out of their collar. It’s the only type of collar we use for little Beau and his sister Sadie. It is a bit hard to find martingale collars at the pet stores, especially cute ones. So today I’m going to show you how to make your own. They are quick and easy to make, and all you need is a few supplies.

Here’s What You Need:

*Cotton or Nylon Webbing

*Ribbon(optional)

*Hardware set- two sliders and one D ring( I found mine Here)

*Measuring tape

*Scissors

*Sewing Machine

*Thread

DSC 0152 504x600 Beau and Rouxs Corner  DIY Martingale Collar

DSC 0123 800x429 Beau and Rouxs Corner  DIY Martingale Collar

Step 1: Measure and cut- Measure your dog’s neck. You want to take two measurements. The first measurement is around the widest part of the neck. The second is around the neck right behind the ears. You want to make your collar loose when worn freely, but able to tighten at the neck so the collar can’t slip over the ears and head, but not too tight to where it chokes the dog. Take your second measurement and add 1.5 to 2 inches to it and cut a strip of webbing that size (my 2nd measurement was 10.5, so I cut my collar to be 12.5 inches.) Then take your second measurement and subtract it from your first measurement. My first measurement was 12.5, so 12.5-10.5= 2″, then double the difference since this will be a loop, so that would be 4″, and then add another 2″ allowance for sewing to get your final measurement for your control loop, mine was 6″. So to repeat the formula again:

Measurement 1- around widest part of the neck

Measurement 2- around the neck right behind the ears

Measurement for collar= measurement 2 + 2″

Measurement for control loop= Measurement 1- Measurement 2, doubled, then add 2″ (or basically a little over half the length of the collar)

Once you have your correct measurements, cut your collar and control loop strips of webbing and ribbon

DSC 0126 455x600 Beau and Rouxs Corner  DIY Martingale Collar

DSC 0127 657x600 Beau and Rouxs Corner  DIY Martingale Collar Step 2: Sew Ribbon to webbing if using ribbon- Tuck end of ribbon over the edge of one side of your webbing. Carefully topstitch all the way around the ribbon on the machine and snip loose threads.

DSC 0129 434x600 Beau and Rouxs Corner  DIY Martingale Collar

DSC 0130 698x600 Beau and Rouxs Corner  DIY Martingale CollarStep 3: Sew Collar- Insert webbing onto one of the sliders fold over about an inch and stitch down webbing closing over the slider. Measure your collar again. You need to count in the webbing plus the sliders and enough allowance to fold over the other edge of webbing into the second slider bar.  You want your finished collar piece to be the exact measurement of measurement 2. If you need to trim some off, go ahead and do so. Then, insert your loose end of webbing into the second slider buckle, fold over and stitch closed.

DSC 0131 590x600 Beau and Rouxs Corner  DIY Martingale Collar

Step 4: Sew Control Loop- Thread both of the sliders onto your control loop. Make a loop and overlap the ends by around 2″. Stich down the end underneath close to the end, making sure your top end of the webbing is loose and free. Slide the d-ring onto the top loose flap of the webbing and scooch it down to the seam you just made. Then, stitch down the top flap of webbing. You should end up with a loop of webbing that has a d-ring sandwiched in between the ends, and two sliders.

Aren’t they cute! These collars are so easy to make, and with all the adorable ribbon out there you could make one for every day of the week. Beaureguard really likes his collars, and it makes me feel better to know that he can no longer escape his collar, so I don’t have to worry about catching him if he decides to make a break and go after a squirrel in the park! So go ahead and give one a try for your favorite pooch.

Happy Crafting!

Beau & Roux’s Corner- DIY Pet Bed

img 9277 599x600 Beau & Rouxs Corner  DIY Pet Bed

This month on Beau and Roux’s corner I have a fun DIY pet bed you can make from an old suitcase. I’ve seen a bunch of them on pinterest, and I just happened to find a bright red vintage samsonite suitcase at an antique mall for $5 a couple of months ago, so I just had to try one of my own. I would have loved to have bought some retro legs for the bottom of the bed, but did not want to spend a lot without knowing whether it would actually be used by the little fuzzies, so I used wooden ball feet I bought at the craft store and painted aqua. I love how easy it was to make, and if you are a savvy shopper, economical too!

Here’s what you need:

* A Suitcase

*A Pillow and Pillowcase

*Wooden Ball feet or furniture feet of your choice

*Wood Screws

*A ruler, pencil, and drill

dsc 0062 800x4741 Beau & Rouxs Corner  DIY Pet Bed

Step 1: Take apart suitcase- My suitcase had a piano hinge which we were able to just pull out easily with pliers. If your has rivets, you can try to hammer them out.

dsc 0063 800x5951 Beau & Rouxs Corner  DIY Pet Bed

Step 2: Mark bottom for feet- Measure from each corner where you want your feet. I measured in 2.5″ from each corner for mine

dsc 0067 740x600 Beau & Rouxs Corner  DIY Pet Bed

dsc 0068 467x600 Beau & Rouxs Corner  DIY Pet Bed

Step 3: Attach Feet- Drill screws through the bottom to make the pilot holes. Then, flip the suitcase over. Put a washer on your screw and screw into the bottom of the suitcase a bit. Take your foot and screw onto the screw a few turns, then hold the foot tightly with your hand while you tighten the screw down all the way until tight. Repeat with other feet.

dsc 0096 800x4651 Beau & Rouxs Corner  DIY Pet Bed

Step 4: Finish- Finish off your pet bed with a fluffy pillow and a sweet pillowcase. My pet bed fit a standard pillow.

dsc 0105 800x598 Beau & Rouxs Corner  DIY Pet Bed

And there you have it. Easy peasy! I love how cute this turned out, and it only took about 20 minutes to make. Beauregard, our dog, really likes it so far! I used one of his favorite pillows from our bed and one of my favorite vintage pillowcases from my stash. Overall a cute, and fun craft for you top make for your favorite furry friend!

I Heart Etsy Fridays- The Fab Life of Roux

I have been meaning to feature this shop for a while now. This is an Etsy shop that my mom and I have together and have recently added art prints to. The Fabulous Life of Roux Toulouse is a children’s book that my mom and I created together a couple of years ago about a day in the life of my fantastic cat Roux Toulouse. Come along with Roux and explore his day. Find out what makes him and the life he leads truly fabulous. Everypage features a photo of Roux in his daily life, from waking up mom and dad to doing yoga, and pretending in the afternoon to dancing after dinner. Roux is a truly amazing cat. Even though all the pictures in the book feature backgrounds we manipulated in photoshop, Roux himself was never photoshoped or touched up. He is the best model we’ve ever had! This book makes a great gift for both kids and cat lovers alike. Here are some of my favorite art prints from the book:

Happy Birthday Beau and Sadie!

img 3302 Happy Birthday Beau and Sadie!

Today is my dog Beaureguard(aka Toot), and his sister Sadie’s birthday. A little less than a year ago my mom, my sister, and I drove out past charlotte to look at these two little cuties, and immediately fell in love with them. I mean how could you not, right? My sister took the little girl and I took her brother, and after a few hours of going back and forth on names we settled on Beaureguard for my puppy, and Sadie for hers. Beau is such a cool dog! He is laid back, but super lovey dovey, and is just all around an amazing dog. The only complaint we have is that he has pretty bad gas every once in a while that could seriously clear a room, hence the nickname toot. Sadie is super spunky and a bit skittish, but completely adorable. They love to play together and they get into all kinds of mischief.

In this past year since we got the puppies, we’ve learned a lot about puppies, lost a lot of paper towels and a set of rattan chairs, and have gotten a lot of laughs and love. I am looking forward to many more dog filled years ahead!

I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, I am a big animal lover! I love all kinds of animals, but none of them tug at my heart more than my italian greyhound, Beaureguard, and my lynx point siamese Roux Toulouse. They are spoiled beyond reason(along with the other pets), and so I guess it is fitting that I’ve decided to give them their very own spot on my blog. Here are some of their furry faves from the internet this week:
