Handmade Ornaments

What a fun thing to do with your kids! This year I made handmade ornaments with my kids! They are still very young, but we tried! Use cookie cutters or even smash your kids hands into them! Mix the flour, salt and water, shape and bake! That's it!

Here is a recipe to use....

4 Cups Flour
1 Cup Salt
1 1/2 cups warm water

(Makes about 15 ornaments, depending on the size)

Mix and spread out on floured surface about 1/8" thick or however thick you want! Use a toothpick, or a straw (what I used) to make holes for yarn to hang onto the tree!

Bake at 325 degrees until hard. (About 1 hour)

Keep it as is, paint it, decorate it however you want!

Make-up tutorial: dark color blend

Just a way of using several dark colors to bring them together! Let me know what you think and if you want to see more!

Haha - Don't love it that you can't change the picture it stops at. Awe funny faces when putting on make-up!

(My friend Rachel suggested I start a make-up tutorial video - since I haven't yet - hope it turns out well!)

Hey Everyone, so I have been super busy STILL with unpacking into our new house. I am not done yet, but at least I am FINALLY starting to put items up for sale. I only have one item up now, but should have more soon! Better one than none!

Here is a coupon code good through the month of FEBRUARY to celebrate me starting to actually sell the products I make!


Use this code in my etsy shop for a 15% off discount. Currently that means there is only one item... neckties for boys through men. However, I will also let you use this discount for custom products... meaning you pick the fabric and size, I make the necktie! Go for a valentine's tie, or an everyday or church tie, or even a necktie with a favorite movie character! I am so excited to be finally starting this up!
