Recycled Dog Treat Holder

Hello everyone!!!!  Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  I want to thank everyone for your well wishes about my leg...  It's definitely healing, and I am able to move around pretty normally now.  I had to make several trips to the doctor, and he diagnosed me with "second degree road burn" on my lower leg!!!!  YIKES!  I got a tetanus shot, two different types of antibiotics, and lots of bandage changes!  I'm also very happy my dad is healing too, his arm has a HUGE bruise!  Soooo glad we're both getting better!  I'll share a couple pictures at the bottom of this post... Anywho, today is another challenge over at Krafty Girls!!!!  The challenge this week is: 3D projects.  I decided to turn an old peanut butter jar into a dog treat holder...  My mom hoards (I mean, collects) containers like that, so I put one of them to good use!  :)  My dogs sure do approve of this project!!!

Mini Monograms- I turned a scalloped circle into an oval H 4.10 x W 2.56"
George and Basic Shapes- oval cut at 2.94 x 2.10"
Doodletype- "yum!" cut at .76"
Peachy Keen Stamps- Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed Face Assortment
Stickles- star dust, cotton candy
Patterned paper
White gel pen- stitching and paw prints
Peanut butter jar (mine's Jif, guess my mom's a "choosy mom"), hee hee
Dog treats

Okay, here are some pictures from my freak accident....

This is the "sinkhole" we fell into!  That was so scary!  I think the two pieces on the left are the ones that ate my leg!

Here's a picture of my upper leg!  This was after it was already starting to heal...  The bruise was much darker, and it looked really dark on that white leg (the camera flash really washed out what little color I do have on those legs, and trust me it's not much to begin with)! 

*I won't show you the lower leg (it's way too gnarly)!  My sister is pregnant and she gets sick when she looks at it, so that pretty much sums it up!

Well...  Hope you enjoyed my treat holder!  Now head on over to Krafty Girls and link up your 3D projects!  :)

I am so glad that your scrapes and bruises are healing (and your dad, too). The recycled jar/dog treat holder is so cute! I bet it only took one treat and your furbaby loves the new treat jar, too!

That is a nasty wound you have my friend. I hope that someone does something about this hole to make it safer for others who might be around it. I love, love your recyled jar! I guess we should all be more like your mom and save these containers to reuse them. You have a smart and choosy mom!!! Happy healing to you and your dad.

Most consumers have considered such chargers as most convenient and beneficial. This liquid formula is quickly absorbed unlike pills that often just sit in the stomach and intestines without even dissolving. Sony has a whole plethora of products and services. This could mean big things for Powermat, LTD, whose electromagnetic induction charging technologies have yet to gain household popularity.
