my creative space: sparkles and sorting

My creative space today involves sorting out my overflowing scrap drawers into little scrap packs...

Cutting into some new oilcloth destined to be sewn up this weekend into purses.

...and lots of pink 'princess' playdough

Cooked Playdough Recipe: 
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 Tbsp oil
2 tsp creme of tartar
food colouring/dye/paint powder...
glitter *

Cook and stir for 3 - 5 minutes until mixture comes together. Keep in a covered container, or snap lock bag. 

*this is optional, but definitely necessary if making 'princess' playdough :-)

I hope your Thursday is going well. I am desperately looking forward to the weekend!
