We all have...

I agree with the Beatles when they said All You Need is Love!  In order to express this eternal feeling for the most recent holiday I created this little banner to spice up my window shelf... Our Little Off North team had experiment #2

Salt Dough:
Salt dough has a sparkly texture. It is heavy and strong and is especially suited for large or standing pieces, such as plaques or trivets, or as foundations for other, more delicate craft doughs. Salt dough keeps indefinitely when covered and refrigerated.
Recipe 1
2 cups salt
2/3 cup water
1 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water
Food coloring, tempera, or other water-base paint
Mix salt and 2/3 cup water in a pan. Heat until quite warm. Remove from heat. Mix cornstarch and cold water together and add to mix in the pan, stirring constantly. Return pan to stove and keep stirring until mixture forms a smooth mass. Turn out on a plate and cover with a damp cloth until cool. Work in coloring if desired.
Shape on a foil-covered cookie sheet and let dry thoroughly - several hours in a warm oven or several days at room temperature. Smooth away rough edges with a nail file.
This was one of the most intriguing and exciting art's I've done!  Little Off North LOVES anything sparkly..so we were in!  This was so fun...I highly suggest trying.

There is still a nice ball in the fridge waiting to be made into a creation!!

Then on family dinner night here I created this reminder with the aide of my mother and father..ha!

My father is King of the Knots...he knows (I think) them ALL: So I of course called him in on this one. I swear he'll save my life one day with his Knot Knowledge!

It been great seeing this lovely site hanging in my dining room!  P.S. please praise my creative workspace...not judge (hehe)
Hope you all had a sweet Valentines Day! I, Kate, spent it with my lovely Manyet Dance girls...Geoff and I celebrated Saturday!
