Well, I dunno if this is called crafting necessarily but it's definitely creating something, which I haven't done in a while.
Two weekends ago I made some salt dough ornaments and they actually turned out pretty decently. I will provide photos when I have several of them painted.
The recipe I used was found at this site: Making Salt Dough Ornaments
I have looked at some other recipes and some call for vegetable oil. I don't know why some call for it and others do not. I don't know what the oil provides to the creation. Does anyone else know?
I have painted just a few of the cut out ornaments with tempera paint and am using a glossy Mod Podge as a sealer. I can't wait to have most painted. I think I will make some more ornaments this upcoming weekend.
I will let O go to town on several of them and give them to her classmates at daycare.
I must say I am heavily addicted to pinterest.com. It's a good addiction, though, because I am actually being more adventurous in the kitchen and I think when it comes to creativity it is revving up my engines.
All of my recipes these days I have pinned on Pinterest and they are so easy to find and use on my phone. It is making "doing" a lot more easier for me.
I must have a million bookmarks that I never look at and have no clue what many of them are. I will someday have a million pins on Pinterest but I am always looking at it because visually/aesthetically it is so pleasing and so easy to remember what is what.
Any who...this wasn't supposed to be an ad for their site. :)
This was just to say yay me for making these ornaments and I will have photos to share soon!
