Gift wrapping paper or a cheeky background for the headshot of certain opinionated red head –so many uses. I love this craft paper turned rotten tomato paper!

What you need: 
A long sheet of craft paper
A crude tomato drawing you have cut out of a small sheet of craft paper
Red spray paint

What to do: 
In a well ventilated area, spread out the craft paper. Sit the tomato stencil on the paper and spray in the “tomato hole” with the red spray paint. Remove the stencil and place in a different spot on the paper (working in whatever fun pattern you like) and spray. Repeat the process until the entire sheet of craft paper is covered in red tomatoes. Note: overspray is acceptable and even encouraged in my world. I love the homemade feel of this! Allow to dry before using.

How To: Keep Your Dog’s Coat Shiny

By Libbie Summers

My great uncle’s husband, Andrew, is a living breathing best in show. Andrew runs in the affluent world of animal showmanship. Since I’ve known him, Andrew has shown a miniature pony, 4 breeds of dogs, 3 breeds of chickens (one of which we were told never to mention when clearing customs), goats and doves. 

Andrew is a fascinating guy who not only has a penchant for ponies and pups he also makes a mean margarita. Over said drinks one afternoon, I asked him his secret for keeping his dog’s coats so shiny. Without hesitation Andrew walked to his refrigerator and pulled out a tub of yogurt. 

Now once a year, whether she needs it or not, our dog Maggie gets a yogurt hair condition. She doesn’t seem to mind it as I see her licking in between her toes for hours after –a leftover yogurt treat for enduring my need for her to be best in show and for Andrew to approve of me.  
How to keep a dog's coat shiny from Libbie Summers
Directions for a Shiny Dog Coat:
1. Wash your dog as usual.
2. Coat the fur with a layer of yogurt (amount will depend on the size of the dog, we use 3 cups for Maggie). Massage into the coat and allow to stay on for 5 minutes.
3. Rinse and pat dry. Feel free to leave a little in between the toes for a treat.
