Thundershirt Review


HAHA his before picture ;o) he wouldn't hold still
I'm sure before i have mentioned my crazy dog Koda here before :O) He is a 5 year old Cairn Terrier that I have had since he was about 6 weeks old. Now he has always been a bit of a hyper dog, if fact he lives to spin in circles barking at, well whatever is in the air I suppose. We have tried about every type of training we can and he just would not calm down. Recently I was given the chance to review a great new product for dogs. Perhaps you have heard of the ThunderShirt before, if not let me tell you this thing may save my sanity! I loved the thick quality construction of the shirt. It came in a cute little bag, with easy to follow instructions. Even with Koda flopping around like a dying fish it was really easy to apply. I was amazed how quick it seemed to work for him. You could still see the strong desire to go crazy on his face but he just laid there and panted a bit then fell to sleep! Now I'm not going to lie this is not the cure all he still has his moments.lol However the ThunderShirt has great reduced his anxiety and when he does have his moments they don't tend to last as long. If you have a dog that suffers from anxiety of any kind I highly recommend giving this product a try :O) and because no post would be complete without something cute here he is hehehe.
Watching birds :O) NOT barking!
What photoshoot is complete without a good roll in the dirt ;o)

This is a very good idea. I know people can have sensory issues, I don't see any reason why our pets can't be made to feel calm and relaxed. Great review!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
