Easiest Present

I had this all planned out that I wanted to share what I have learned from the first 6 months of being married.. I can't believe our 6 months is Saturday but than I started to think that it hasn't even been 6 months so I will save that for another date! One thing is for sure though, I have learned more about myself in the last 6 months than I did in 23 years! 

The good news is, tomorrow FINALLY starts recapping the wedding kicking off with The Morning Of.... I know I know, 6 months later & I am finally getting around to it! I've been one busy busy lady!! 

Today I am here to share the most simple present & for all you new mommies out there... 

Ornament Dough
This will harden if you leave it out

Ingredients 
1 cup flour
1 cup salt 
1/2 water 

What you need
Mixing bowl
Mixer
rolling pin
Oven preheated to 250 degrees
cookie sheet 

Directions
Mix all the ingredients together in the mixing bowl with a mixer. Once it look as if its all mixed together, use your hands to finish making it like play-dough texture. Roll out on the counter about 1/2 inch thick. Firmly place hand or foot into dough. Place on cookie sheet and bake roughly around 20 minutes. 

** You can wait 2 days and leave out in the sun. One day for each side** 


You can make a hole anywhere in the dough before baking/letting dry to put string through to hang in the future.

Please take a bit more time than mine. I did it for class but I did use Eli's hand!  

There you have it my friends.
Have a fun filled Tuesday!
