So if you’ve been following me and have seen some of my other posts you have heard me sing my friend Heather’s praises. Well here I go singing again because this post is all about her. She and I have been friends for 17 years and we still jabber away like we were a couple of teenage girls.
I swear she is super mom and never stops moving; I don’t know how she does all she does with 3 girls. Soon she will be adding more kids to the mix by opening up her own daycare. While going through this process and doing the things she needs to in order to get licensed she decided to start up her own little side business. This genius came from something she had crafted years before for her own children that many people had complimented her on.
I am a believer that the best gifts are ones that are given from the heart. I just love the look on my loved ones faces when they open up a gift that I have crafted with my own two hands, it makes all of the hard work worth it. As a child I spent a lot of time working on different projects with my Grandma and now I can pass down all of the knowledge and creativity to my kids. These hand print keepsakes I did with my daughter this year got the best reactions that just filled me with joy.
A lot of people are switching to cornstarch and baking soda for doing this because it looks better than salt dough but I personally think salt dough looks amazing once it’s painted. And lets face it salt dough is way cheaper than the other method.
