Homemade Christmas Cookies for Your Dog

Now you can treat your best friend and not feel guilty!
Our best friends deserve Christmas Treats too!

Think of all they do for us -
keep us safe from strangers,
give the best kisses
and snuggles,
keep our feet warm,
and all those oh so adorable expressions
that make us laugh or smile!

1 1/2 cups hot water
1 1/2 teaspoon chicken or beef bouillon powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup green pepper, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix hot water, oil, bouillon, and garlic powder.
Add flour, cornmeal and vegetables and mix well.

Sometimes it's just easier to use your hands to mix thoroughly :)

Knead dough on a floured surface for a minute or two.

Roll out to 1/4 inch thick, then cut into desired shape

Place on lightly greased cookie sheet in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Let cool. Makes 3-4 dozen cookies, depending on the size you make.

Store in the refrigerator or in an airtight container.

Your best friend will love you even more!!

Quick and Easy Ornaments, Gifts or/and Gift Toppers

Digging through my Treasure Stash I came across 
some old Formica Swatches.

Big ones...

and little ones.

I knew there had to be something Christmasy
 I could do with these wonders

They were nice and hard and would make for a great backing to.....

Gifts Toppers
Remembrance Gifts

I gathered a bunch of supplies:

and any other embellishments I could think of!

And of course Mod Podge!

I coated the Formica Swatch with Mod Podge.    

I placed my chosen background paper on top
and smoothed it on carefully so there were no wrinkles.

Once dry I trimmed the background paper to fit the swatch exactly.

I copied some old images I had, printed them, 
then cut them out using an Exacto blade.

I used Mod Podge to adhere them to the background paper 
and them embellished away!

Some received pearl strands and shiny clear gems ~
others were edged in vintage lace, pearls and trim.
I used coordinating ribbon for hanging.

On a few of the smaller ones, 
I used vintage images of women in their Christmas clothing.
A couple only have coordinating trim along the bottom.

Your imagination is the only limit!
This was a fun and quick project
for a stormy afternoon without electricity!
