Hello there!!! I made salt dough cookies yesterday for our church function this saturday..we are having a brunch and egg hunt and we are decorating the tables in a long row down the center of the tables with little cups filled with dirt and not sure what else..so I said I would bake these salt dough cookies..I love how easy they were to do and painting them was equally as fun..
I made 2 batches and got 17 cookies in each one...I put them in a paint can that I need to paint and decorate up might do that today or tomorrow and take as well..
aren't they cute? I really had a ball making these and I dipped them in the wax when I was done..I had this cute little crockpot that is probably used for a one person soup sort of thing..and I put my wax in it and it dipped them puurrffeecctly..;)
I was reading "simple" magazine the other day and they had some great ideas to make your life easier..so I thought I would share those with you..the top one is a hanger that you untwist the top and insert the ribbons on it..
a little clear nail polish on the bottoms of your shave gels or shower gels that are in the shower and they get rusty..this will help prevent that..
a tea strainer as a sugar duster..I love this idea..
and my favorite..a mis matched pair of crocks turn/planter..I love this..they hung them with string and the holes are already there..you line the toes with moss, then plant pansies, viola, or pincushion ivy and hang them from the heel strap..these would look so cute on any porch and a great conversation piece too..I have several that we don't/can't wear any more due to our poor feet and they are in bright colors..a nice touch of color and whimsy..:) well it is a dreary day today after yesterdays gorgeous day of 65 and sun..I sat outside while the cookies baked and read my home tour addition of country sampler..it felt soooo good..we have the garden all tilled and prepared to plant..hubby found a bunch of potatoes from last years garden and got those planted..now we need to do the rest come pay day...well I am off to sew and get my little sisters stuff done and the other projects/surprises I have promised folks out there..(you know who you are)..sorry they have been sooo late..but I promise they will be worth it..have a great rest of your thursday..:)
