Doggie Mat

Doggie Placemat


Our new little puppy is a messy eater! Making this cure placemat was super simple! Here’s how:


Carpet square

Acrylic paint

Thick craft foam



Glue gun

Foam brush

Paper plate


  1. Look for a carpet square that is rather smooth. Too much texture makes it hard to stamp on and get a nice clear image.
  2. Draw out your image on the craft foam and cut it out. Using your left over pieces glue two pieces to one side to make a handle.
  3. Paint one side of your stamp and apply it to the carpet. Let dry
  4. Once your paint is dry you can wash over it. Acrylic paint is there to stay!

Gloria shows us the basic tools we need to get started. Most importantly she shows us what to do with them! Just like anything else good tools cost money. so once you make the investment taking care of your brushes will insure they last a long time.

Here are a few tips to clean your brushes:

  • Use Baby shampoo to clean.
  • Wet the brush and gently with your fingers work in the shampoo.
  • Rinse and reapeat until all the make up is gone and the water is clear.
  • Shake or press out the excess water with a cloth. Lay flat to dry.

Fix Flabby Arms

Fix Flabby Arms

Don’t let the back of your arms continue waving after you have stopped! Personal trainer Clarence Ferguson has a few super simple exercises you can do to prevent the on going wave.
Anything that extends the arm or lengthens it is a tricep exercise. With that in mind here we go!
1. Single arm extension: Grab any form of resistance bend your arm and return it too the straight position. Be sure  once you pick a position to start from, your elbow remains fixed. 15 to 20 reps each arm.

2. Double arm extension: The same as above except now you are using two arms instead of one. You can perform either of these exercises standing or seated. What determines your body position is how much weight you are using.

3. Bench dips: Place both hands on your bench or whatever your using to hold your body up , walk your legs out to your desired level of work load, remember the further your legs are away from your body the greater the resistance will become. Once your feet are set descend slowly until your arms are at 90 degrees push up and return to your starting position. Repeat 15 times

4.Close grip push ups: From your feet or from the modified position (on your knees) place your hands about thumb apart . Rotate your shoulders so your arms are parallel to your body (places more emphasis on triceps, versus the chest doing more of the work) slowly descend up and down to your desired rep range.

Do 15 to 20 reps  in sets of 3. You can make it a circut so you won’t tire as easily.
