Salt Dough Keepsakes

I actually made these hand-prints with my children back in December and I finally sat down and painted them.  I was going to have my daughter paint her's but after I did my sons I just kept going because I absolutely love them! It will be a hand print I will keep forever!  


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
Bake for about an hour at 325*

Last Christmas we made fun ornaments and I let Selah have a ton of fun painting them.  We did make these hand-prints then too but we never finished them.  

You have so many possibilities to create something  neat with salt dough and the best part is it will not break your bank!  You can make a keepsake like these hand-print ones for Father's Day, Mother's Day, Birthday's, Christmas, or any other special event.

Love this! I made it with my class and after it was baked and cooled off, I painted it over with Modpodge and it seems to be holding pretty well in preventing cracks.
Modpodge... BRILLIANT idea! Thanks for the tip!

It made enough for handprints and several christmas ornaments!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
