Doggie Ice Cubes

As the heat of the summer approaches, I thought I would share this thrifty way to make ice cubes for our canine friends.  And so the first ever Doggie Edition post commences…


The thrifty part of this is the reuse of yogurt containers as the ice cube maker.  Now… make sure you use yogurt containers that are larger at the top than the bottom.  Obviously this prerequisite eliminated using the standard Yoplait containers, LOL! 

But you can use these new ‘GREEK’ Yoplait yogurt containers.  Ms. Diva’s would like to point out that her favorite crackers/pretzels are present in the background.

Here is a close-up of the packaging {a little plug for 2x protein yogurt}.  PS~This is not my favorite yogurt by any means.  Another thrifty concept: the HEB brand costs $0.20 less than the Yoplait brand.  One more reason to buy the store brand over the brand name.

I wash the cups out with soap, and then fill them up to about 75% full.  Stick them in the freezer overnight, and in the morning you will have…. Doggie Ice Cubes!

Stand back, and let your canine friend enjoy.

Don’t trip on any little helpers that are trying to convince you they need more of their favorite crackers.


  1. Oooooooh you have a Shep... I really want one. Doing the whole RV life having a guard dog is so important. We'll be getting a bigger dog with the next rig and Sheps are on the top of the list. You little one is so cute - I want that hair color... I wonder if they make it in a bottle?


  2. He has one of the best coats ever, here is a better photo of him; . He adores his ice cubes.
    PS - I love her hair color too, to bad it will be getting darker as she gets older.

  3. i have two shepherds! ;0 love them. best breed ever!!

  4. I have two small dogs, who are afraid of ice cubes. But I did have a dog that liked to carry them around.

    BTW, I know that shepherds are prone to hip probs (apparently shih tzus are, too). I take my shih tzu to our doggie chiropractor (at the vet's office.) FYI, if you ever need one...I hope you don't.

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…

Planner Sections

Order in my Palmer (right now) goes like this...Dashboard, wrapped in two verses printed on card stock, Food tracker, 2016 DIYFish yearly calendar for melds tracking,  Weekly (DIYFish Weekly Project) Monthly two-page layouts, Financial Freedom pages, Fitness pages, Project pages (special event planning pages), Church Team pages. 

I have a steno pad in the back pocket for the ongoing, never ending to-do list and what purchases are needed for those tasks. 
A second stern pad is tucked into the front pocket for me brain dump as I think of things during the day.
