Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Playdough Tutorial Of Sorts

It was rainy here in Cleveland so I decided to get my craft on with my kids.

We recently purchased a Vitamix and I am so in love. Well I decided that I would let the kids whip something up so we used the following recipe.

Pour in vitamix in order listed:

  • Two cups water
  • Two tbsp vegetable oil
  • Two cups white flour (I used wheat and it did not turn out at all)
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • Natural food coloring
Place all of the ingredients in your vitamix machine and blend for five minutes. The friction from the fabulous vitamix will basically cook the playdough.

Once done you need to quickly divide it into four bowls. I used about twenty drops of food coloring for each one cup portion of the playdough. The easiest way to mush it is with a fork. The food coloring will dye to your skin if you try to knead it with your hands.

You will want to let the playdough set up for about fifteen minutes before playing with it. When it is set up get ready for some crazy messy fun, C1 and C2 definitely had a good time. Don't be suprised if you need to give the kidlets a bath afterwords.

I always loved making homemade playdough. This is another great gift idea for moms. My mom worked in a daycare center for 21 years. Everytime one of your students would master potting training she gave them their own personal playdough set up. She would add cookie cutters and a wooden rolling pin. Keep your playdough in a sealed container and it will last a long time. Recycled cool whip or butter containers work great. To make your playdough smell great add a few drops of mint or other food grade oils.
