recipes? crafty finds? inspirational images? home decor ideas? quotes? just put them all there.
as for crafty ideas, my pinboard is full and i've felt super inspired by it, but last weekend i got to actually make something inspired by a pinterest find! i revisited a childhood craft of ours, and made tags, ornaments and little teacandle holders with salt dough.
with images of these beautiful ornaments fresh in my mind, i (or i might say we, see above) got to work. i used the simple recipe the site mentions. i would have loved to do something like this (stamping on the salt dough tags), but my tags and ornaments didn't come out flat enough. i'll try this project again in a couple of weeks and hope to use the rolling pin again once the tags are on the baking tray, i think this way they will actually remain flat enough to be stamped upon. also, spencer will not constantly point at them and ask: "kekse? kekse?" (cookies?) ...
after everything dried, i simply painted the items with white acrylic paint and embellished them a bit more with a black pen. a coat of varnish, and they actually don't look that bad after all, for the first try ;)
these are my snowflake ornaments, they could also be used as gift tags:

have you worked with salt dough lately? have you got any tips you would like to share?
