Schnoodle is a fun word that I get to say all the time now

Meet Huxley, our new puppy!

Hello, my name is Huxley

He is a four-month-old Giant Schnoodle (Giant Schnauzer mixed with a Standard Poodle). Yes, he's a mutt, but he's our mutt.

I am a Giant Schnoodle
We get to bring him home next week when the vet says he is A-OK. His heart has a little murmur and we're waiting to find out if it's a forever murmur or a puppy murmur.
Can you handle my cuteness?
 We're so excited, we can hardly contain ourselves!

I'm going to be HUGE!
 We've been told to expect a 100-lb dog by the time Huxley is full-grown. Holy big dog, batman!

Love, please!
We picked out his collar and leash and are waiting ever so patiently for him to nuzzle his way into our lives.

DIY: Stir sticks // cupcake toppers

These can be used in drinks, on cakes and cupcakes, as fruit skewers, or to pierce a slider. No matter their end design location, these little guys are super cute and can be made in a night!

I used:

  • grosgrain ribbon, $6/4 yds
  • small BBQ skewers, $3/100 sticks
  • a lighter to seal the ribbon ends, $3
These little guys are super easy, but take some time. Cut all your ribbon to a pre-determined length. I find the length changes based on ribbon size. Do one, cut the ribbon, unravel it, and cut everything else to match.

Watch your fingers! I burned myself more than once, so take your time!
