cotton-balls

Things I Have Said to My Dog During This Crisis™
  • Me: THROW UP ON NEMO NOT MY BED
  • *puts a finding nemo popcorn bowl under his mouth after fake gagging into it as he is gagging*
  • Me: I AM A PERSON NOT A PERMANENT RESIDENCE (he was laying on my ribs)
  • Me: Why are you like this *cannot get any space on my own bed*
  • Me: IF YOU WOULD STOP TRYING TO EAT YOUR OWN FOOT MAYBE YOU COULD ACTUALLY GET BETTER
  • Me: You smell like death you cotton ball of sin

Whenever someone tells my cat “You wouldn’t even like this!” when she’s begging for food, I feel the need to remind them that this is the cat who once ripped open a bag of cotton balls and ate them.

And while I don’t know exactly how many she ate in the end (she did it while unsupervised, naturally), I can tell you that she did not repent of her decision after the first one. She committed. 

DIY Nebula Bottle

These bottles are a cross between Nebular Jars, Sand Art, and Calming Bottles. 

What is interesting about these Nebula Bottles, is that there is no paint in them, but there is sand. So all you need is for this DIY is glitter, food coloring, cotton balls and sand.

I like almost any Space DIY. You can check out my posts for Constellation DIYs here, Nebula DIYs here, and Galaxy DIYs here.

I love this new take on the Apothecary jars. I thought about making them for my little girl’s playroom, but thought the awesomness of them would be lost on her. (She is pretty fracking smart, but she’s still only three, so I have to be realistic when I think about whether or not she’ll appreciate the finer things in life. And yes, I did just call DIY apothecary jars finer things. When you get your own blog you can make up the rules. For now, you’re in MY house.) Teal and Lime has given me a new reason to DIY. Because I needed one. Because I’m not already obsessed enough.
