Stop & Chat: Hamster Snacks
This is a shorter post, but I wanted to share this very small but incredibly rewarding project: homemade hamster treats!
The hamsters have settled into their new homes swimmingly. I've reached a bit of a bump in their hamster-lid making adventure because we do not have some of the tools required and they were not on post like we'd hoped. Amazon, it is!
Unfortunately I do not have pictures of the creation process for the hanging seed discs. All I did was combine flour, seeds, and water, form the mixture into discs, poke a hole in them, and bake them.
This second concoction is a mixture of bananas, various berries, and oats.
These got rolled into balls and were baked as well.
The hamsters were just waking up as I put their treats in their homes.
I wish I had gotten a picture, but Bunny ended up climbing up her seed discs and swung around for a bit before deciding that the floor was a much nicer place.
Her oat treat was hiding in that wooden puzzle piece. She promptly took it and brought it into her nest.
Hammy was super excited about her seed treat. I was unable to get a picture of her in focus. It reminded me of that scene from Over the Hedge where Hammy (oh my goodness, I just realized that they have the same name!) drank and energy drink and the world slowed down for him.
I've been making lots of stickers. I got a wild sticker-making hair up my butt and now I've made so many stickers that most of the Etsy stuff I bought for my planner has been replaced. I still try to use those stickers, and there are definitely stickers that have higher quality than the ones I've made, but at the rate I'm going I have to acknowledge the reality of an eternal surplus. LOL!
I've even started doodling again. *gasp* It's been fun allowing myself to indulge in hobbies I'd dropped long ago.
Have you picked up any old hobbies lately?
