Okay, I know I don’t earn any points here for creativity this week, since salt dough is not only one of the easiest peasiest crafts in this world, but also one of the most common.
But still. Martha needed to make salt dough. It’s a Christmas rite of passage.
As you know, I am directing a kids choir this year. There are 37 kids who have been working their arses off to learn and master 9 songs for the Christmas Musical this year, and they have done it cheerfully and with good attitudes and smiles on their cute little faces.
This time next week it will all be over and while there is a part of me that is sad about that, I also know that we all need a break and there is always next year!
It is important to me to thank those talented little kids for all their hard work with something tangible. Something they can hold onto and remember. I am hoping they like this ornament I made them, and that one day, years from now, they still hang it on their trees and are reminded that they were a part of something beautiful, and that they, too, have a voice.
As you can see, I ran out of regular flour and had to use bread flour…complete with flax seeds and all! But thankfully it doesn’t seem to matter now that they are painted and glittered. I’d really like to find the time this week to make little tags for them, with maybe a line or two from one of the songs we’re working on. That would be nice but we’ll have to see.
Anyways, so there you have it. 6 weeks of this weird craft obsession of mine are behind us, with only 1 to go. Unbelievable how time flies.
Have a great week, lovely friends of mine!
PS Thanks Elisa for your help!
