All of Lindsay's ideas were super cute and also super easy. So I decided to try adding a series of black polka dots around the tin. I would have done a color, but I had a black Sharpee and was actually too lazy to run to the store to find a cute color. But the black turned out really cute, and I am addicted to all things black and white so it works. Next I added the name, Kasey, to the inside of the bone. Finally, I drew a big paw print on the lid and still left room around it in case another flood of creative energy hits me. (Unlikely.) And.... as you can see, that is as far is I got:
I was thinking about adding polka dotted grosgrain ribbon around the side of the lid. However, it's a good thing I didn't get around to it because I think Kasey would have ripped it off immediately. She's into biting anything and everything. Including the dog food bin, already!
On a side note, I was at the Pottery Barn Outlet last week and picked up this huge glass jar to contain dog treats. It was a $30 jar (seriously, who wants to spend that much on a jar?) that I snagged for $10 (which is still a bit much if you ask me, but I saw similar jars at Target that were at least $15 and I know this one is better quality). I think it looks a little more decor friendly than your typical dog treat container and it's easier to access than the resealable treat bag.
Two more things: First, yes, I realize I need to stock up on more dog treats, the jar is running a bit low. Second, yes, I realize I need to work on my photography skills because I have none! Any suggestions on how to take better pictures? I'm using a Canon Power Shot SD750 with 7.1 mega pixels... so I'm guessing it's not the camera's fault.
