Ballard Designs inspired...

I've been wanting something to put the cat and dog food into, but I really hate spending so much money on something so mundane!  And the ones I really wanted were not cheap:


But..."gasp"...I am!  So...this is what I came up with:


Price?...$ZERO!  The canisters had protein powder in them and the alphabets are scrapbook stickers. 

FYI:  Kitchen remodel is still on.  I've just hit a snag.  I've painted and glazed all the cabinets and doors, except for the island.  (I'm thinking about doing the island a different color.)  I'm now waiting on the weather to clear up so that I can varnish everything.   I need to wait until the sun is shining and the weather is a little more mild to do this...I'm afraid if I don't, it will dry sticky.  And I don't need that! week, the temps are suppose to be in the 60's **squeal** and sunny  **squeal**!  I'm so ready for some springtime weather, even if it doesn't last.

Gotta go do some cleaning and maybe some more crafting today!




  1. When I saw the picture of the canister you made, I thought. "Those can't be cheap." Then I saw that you made them. No Way!! They are so much cuter than the store bought ones. You go girl!!

  2. Your dog/cat food canisters are great! I am sooo gonna make one! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Ha! I love them~ what a great idea!
    Hope it's been warm enough for you to work on your cabinets this week.. I can't wait to see them!
