Gotta tell you my DUH story when I was trying to make these salt dough hearts. The recipe for salt dough is:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup salt
1 cup warm water
Mix flour and salt together, then pour in water and knead into a soft dough. Hand mold or cut out shapes and bake at 325 degrees for about an hour.
Easy enough right???, and you know I have made them before.
I mixed up my ingredients and it was kind of liquid~y, so I kept adding more and more flour. Then I decided I must need to pick it up and start working with it (knowing that the last time Lexi & I made these, there wasn't this problem) and when I picked it up it was like my fingers were glued together. At that point, I decided I must need a bit more salt after adding all of that flour and the moment I sprinkled the salt into the mixture, I realized I had used sugar instead of salt for the whole thing......DUH!!!!!!!!
I had to start all over, but as you can see I managed to do it right the next time! Lexi has another Mini-Society coming up fast so we are going to paint these, and use Valentine words on them. Hopefully, everyone will buy them for friends, family, boyfriends and girlfriends. I'll be sure to show you when we get them finished. Just had to to share my big DUH for yesterday though. Hope you all have a great weekend. Lexi will perform with her Jump-n-Jive group at Southeastern State University on Saturday night, and I hope to show you pictures on Monday.♥
