I couldn't find a My First Christmas decoration I liked so had an idea to make one using salt dough and Arthurs foot. This quickly escalated into a production line of salt dough crafts for the entire family. I would highly recommend it though. Its inexpensive, great to do with kids and really easy. All you need is 2 cups of flour, 1 salt and 1 water then bake at a low temp for several hours (basically until they have dried out) Then paint.
I also made the Mary Berry gingerbread house (off the Christmas Bake Off special) and I was sooooo chuffed with the results. This however wasn't inexpensive, easy or one for the kids but very enjoyable for me nevertheless and it was a beautiful centrepiece on Christmas day glowing on my new kitchen island. All in all I had an amazing Christmas with my 'boys' (love saying that) I feel so blessed.
Happy new year!! All the best for 2014 everyone I hope all your dreams come true.
