Starting off the day, I logged in and noticed all the chatter on Facebook about making Gummies. I was curious. I have only dabbled in candy making myself. Usually around Christmas time. So I reached out to my online bff (google) to see if they had any answers for me. Turns out that it's actually kind of easy. Or at least this recipe is. I made a double batch of the recipe over at Skip to My Lou.
Two ingredients and water.
A baby shower mold, an ice tray from Ikea and some Christmas Jello molds that I had in the cupboard.
Try to accomplish anything with a 3 year old under you sticking her fingers in everything. Note to self: buy her a hairnet!
They were very tasty! Baby shower gummies.
I think these were my favorite of the batch. From the Ikea ice tray. Lightly dusted with cornstarch so they wont stick together.
So while on a roll with my creative crafty self, I decided to work on some ribbon dolls hair clips. I followed the tutorial over at Life on the Ridge and made a Tinkerbell and and Ariel.
Clover was not all that enthused about me taking a picture of HER Tinkerbell. I had to bribe her with a fudge bar (which I was already going to give to her but she doesn't have to know that). I also had to take about thirty pics to get a half decent one.
This one I took in my hair. I didn't notice the tiny glue spot on the tail until I looked at the picture later. But in all honesty I am to lazy to take another picture and upload it.
Rounding out the night I made Chili for dinner and Cornbread using this recipe from Epicurious. I made a double batch of this recipe too. Clover and Hubs will eat on it for awhile. Turns out my mom didn't want any because I put real corn in the cornbread. I always thought it made it taste better.
Well, there is my twenty three minutes my dears. I still have to get dinner put away and hop in Clover's room for some stories and bedtime. Looks like I managed to get everything in there with minimal run on sentences. Yay. Go me!
