Cat Litter Container = Pet Food Storage

I own four pets.  FOUR.  When I first moved out on my own I had a dog, two cats, a turtle, and a hamster.  It was INSANE.  Of the current FOUR, only one of them did I set out to own.  The others found me instead.  Anyway, I ramble.  

So... you know those nice EXPENSIVE pet food containers?  Yeah, me too.  They look so nice... with their air tightness, wheels, and nice lid... and so much more pet proof and visually appealing than those big pet food bags.

Well, with two cats I buy the BIG cat litter containers... and I used the old ones to hold the cat poopies... Then I thought... WAIT!  This is a waste!  These could be....DRUM ROLL.... PET FOOD CONTAINERS!!!!

So, I put these babies in the bath tub and washed them out with some dish soap and hot water, then dried them.  You could probably spray paint them if the yellow showing REALLY bothers you, but I was going with it.  I just used some good ol' duct tape :).  

OBVIOUSLY, it needed a little more than the red and white stripes that match my red and white kitchen... 
Sooooo I broke out the silhouette and made myself a Pomeranian and a Cat.  

They are super awesome.  The dog food all fits in, but the cat food always has a couple days worth leftover in the bag.  I can deal with that, it's easy to roll up and hide an almost empty bag!

A little rebranding...

I'm baaaack!

After being in a funk I decided to redo the blog to match my shop name.  It's more meaningful to me than the title Obsessive Creative Disorder was.  Also, I craft, but I don't do it nearly as often as I used to and I don't take pictures like I used to either.  I still want to blog and share things, but my life has changed and my blog needs to reflect that.  I felt bad calling this a craft blog and then posting about other stuff.

More importantly, I've always thought it would be cool to write a book or keep a binder of all those things they don't tell you that you need to know as an adult... or a single girl who moves out on her own.  So I'm thinking my blog will take more of a turn in that direction.  Even my Pinterest page has a board called "Things My Future Daughter Needs to Know."  As I told my best friend... no one tells you when you buy a house that weedeating sucks or that trees are going to grow in your freaking gutters and you have to climb up on a ladder and clean them out!

So, I hope you will stick with me along this journey.  It's sure to provide entertainment.  And I promise to still post some crafty pics... and to post more often.  I got called out on the fact that I haven't posted since December lol.

Much love to all of you!  Bear with me as I make changes!
