I wanted to take the time to share how my I make my play dough kits, what I tend to fill them with, which containers I like to use, and how much they tend to cost me.
For a while now, I have been making truffles at least during the holidays. I started out hand rolling the truffles and dipping them in chocolate which works pretty well,but then I realized I could use a candy mold which I describe the process here. That worked wonderfully too,but then I found out about these truffly molds that make my life SO much easier. I bought one of the huge molds which is pretty expensive, but they have smaller versions if you prefer to make smaller batches. So here is my new system for making truffles.
I was pretty excited about the holidays this year. The day after Thanksgiving, I started putting up the tree and slowly adding different decorations. I would love to have a real Christmas tree,but they are really expensive, and then just get thrown away so until we have kids, we will make due with the fake tree. Also, we have never seen Christmas decor as a need, so most of it is bought used or on sale each year with my allowance. So, I slowly am adding to what I have year after year.
So, back in February, I bought some Fair Isle Reindeer Fabric from Girl Charlee.Â I already had plans on what to do with most of the fabric which was sew Grant and I Christmas shirts for this year’s Christmas Card. I ended up having plenty of fabric left over and so used it to make our Christmas Gift to all of my Nieces and Nephew.
As you can probably see from my recent posts, I have been trying to accumulate an arsenal of baby shower gifts. 🙂 I have been trying to make them in bulk that when a shower comes up, I can just pick out which colors and am good to go. I used to make the burp cloths only,but I felt 3 burp cloths just weren’t enough for one gift. I still have one type of gift I want to try and make for the gifts so I have 3 items per boy or girl gift, but I need to see whether it is worth the work that goes into it.
So yesterday, I posted HERE about my fail with cutting the stretch wrong on some fabric. I didn’t want to throw it away and waste it so I came up with another fun idea of what do to with it, make bow ties!
