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.

I don't know where I went wrong, I would assume it has something to do with my paper to water ratio, but whatever. I just know my bowls took three days to dry and the kids made short work of them once we got them off the bowls.

C2 started breaking it apart, and C1 decided that it was a fabulous Helmet!

At least we had fun!

Have you ever had a craft fail?
