Weekend Cricut Creations

Finished Project - Dog Food Container

That face, her spots, those ears – too much cuteness all rolled into one little pooch! But the point of this post is really to share the personalized dog food containers she is proudly standing next to in our utility room.

I purchased these Bergan Stak-N-Stor Stackable Storage from Amazon, of course. They hold 24 gallons of dry dog food and are just the right size for the room.

Once I set them up, I knew some vinyl letters would be the perfect accessory. Since our girl Abby James is more of a tom boy and pink doesn’t quite suit our rough and tumble chick, I chose a bright turquoise vinyl for her container. My sweet Dixie darlin’ is hot pink all day long.

The Cricut worked its magic. I worked on some weeding of the outside vinyl portions and in a few minutes, they were ready to adhere.

Names Cut Out - Dog Food Container

I use clear contact paper at this point which allows me to line up the appliques and the flexibility of moving it around if I don’t get it right the first placement.

Dog Food Container Final

I may add some extras to the names but I haven’t decided on the perfect graphic. My inner organizer is so happy to have the dog food bags out of the way. They were such an eye sore  before but now we have everything in its place, name tags and all.

Welcome! I am the bayou gypsy, born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Although I have spread my wings in the great cities of Austin, Seattle and Delray Beach, the bayou state kept calling me back home in 2007. Thank goodness for the pull back home because that is where I met and married my husband, Andrew. We relocated to 7 acres in Zachary, LA and have started life on a farm. It's the land of bayous, fishing, hunting, four wheelers, trucks, nutria, deer, cows, three rescue pups named Abby James, Dixie and Gypsy, two rescue horses named Sparkle and Freedom, 20 chickens, 2 turkeys named Leroy & Luann and everything else southern. I have started this personal blog to chronicle our new found farm life, the battles and blessings of our ongoing infertility, our recent adoption and the exciting adventures this bayou gypsy and her cowboy get into on the regular. I dabble in a little bit of everything and will share it all with you one wild ride at a time. Come wander with me...y'all!
