Frozen Olaf Salt Dough Ornament


Ingredients

2 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
1 cup of water

Supplies

Paints brushes
Olaf blue acrylic paint
White acrylic paint
Orange acrylic paint
Black permanent marker
Straw
Ribbon to hang

Directions

1. Add flour and salt together in a bowl. 

2. Slowly add water and stir. 
I stirred with a fork and towards the end used my hands.
YOU DON'T WANT TOO MUCH WATER. 
If it's sticky it will not work. 

3. Knead the dough with your hands.

4. Flatten the dough with a roller.
You will want it about a half an inch thick.

5. Place your child's foot in the dough and press down.
I had to hold my little ones toes so they didn't pinch them. 
Don't press too hard you don't want the print to go through the bottom. 


6. Cut around the footprint with a knife leaving a border. 
You have to have enough room for the hands and hair. 

7. Use a straw to make a hole for the ribbon to go through to hang. 

8. I put all mine on aluminum foil and stuck in the oven.
200 degrees for 2 hours. 
Flip the prints and allow to bake for another hour. 


9. Allow prints to cool before painting. 
I sped up my process by putting them in the fridge. 

10. Paint the foot print and toes white. 
(see more details in photos)

11. Paint outer edge blue and allow to dry. 

12. I used a pencil first to sketch the face.

IMPORTANT OLAF FEATURES:
BIG EYES AND PUPILS
OPEN MOUTH WITH SMILE CREASE
ONE BIG TOOTH UP TOP
BRANCH ARMS AND LEGS
ORANGE CARROT NOSE WITH TWO LINES
THREE BLACK BUTTONS
BLOCKY EYEBROWS


13. Use a permanent marker to draw the face, buttons, hair and arms.

14. Paint the carrot nose and wait until  it drys to trace around it and add the two nose lines. 

15. Allow face to dry and then paint the sides and back blue also. 

OPTIONAL STEP: I always buy Crystal Clear Acrylic spray paint to spray on the finishing product to preserve it for future years. 

NOTE: SPRAY FROM A DISTANCE NOT CLOSE UP! 

I hope you all enjoyed this blog tutorial!

Confessions of a Hair Color-a-Holic

When sitting and deeply thinking about something harmful that I am addicted to it took awhile for me to come to terms with the ONE and only addiction that I have. 
Coloring & Bleaching my hair.
I have never:  smoked tried any drugs rarely drank alcohol chewed tobacco eat lots of junk food or even drank caffeinated drinks.
I am fairly borderline boring besides the fact that  I am ADDICTED TO CHANGING MY HAIR. Here is my story and eye opener:
I started coloring my hair when I was 15 year old.  For the longest time I was a tom boy and had naturally long dirty blond hair.  The first color I ever did was burgundy underneath and low lights up top. After that it was a spiral of different colors. 
Strawberry blonde, dark brown, blonde with red low lights, platinum blonde, chestnut brown it never ended. Along with all the colors I also had issues with ever growing my hair out again  because I was constantly ruining my hair with chemicals.
I started wearing my first set of clip in extensions when I wa…

Chicken Pox after Vaccine

The run around due to Breakthrough Varicella
On October 30th 2014 my son got his Chickenpox Vaccine. 

November 24th  I noticed a few bumps on his stomach when he woke up and called his pediatrician for an appointment right away. The doctor said that they were bug bites.  When I asked about the chicken pox vaccine she assured me that the rash had nothing to do with the vaccine. I picked up calamine lotion and carpet insect killer.  Went home and stripped his bedding, bleached his crib rails and mattress,  sprayed his carpet with the insect killer and even got rid of our dog. The bumps dried up but as soon as they did...
December 2nd Brayden was once covered in bumps.  They were mostly on his back/neck and stomach. I freaked out thinking that it was a bug again even though he sleeps in footie pjs. Once again I sprayed the carpets, stripped his bedding and bleached his mattress. I searched HIGH and LOW looking for any bug(s) or even a spider web. The bumps dried up and went away but not for long. 
By Dec…

An honest blog about Honest Diapers ❤ PART ONE

Before I get into the benefits of Honest Diapers I wanted to first share my story on the struggles I dealt with that lead me to Honest. 
My first born, Brayden, always struggled with diaper rash from name brand diapers.  When he was first born we used Huggies.  I noticed that I would have to CAKE on ointment just to keep the rash away when he didn't even had diarrhea or a soiled diaper. 
We then switched to LUVS. Within a week his rash was even worse and peeling.  I once again headed to the store to look and buy new diapers.
All these store named diapers that you always hear and every box is saying how amazing their brand is but even Pampers didn't help his poor butt. I was spending tons of money on diapers and diaper rash cream too! 
I then switched to Huggies Naturals. He still got a rash and our problems were far from gone.  Brayden came down with a virus that consisted of unending diarrhea.  Mixing diarrhea with an already sore bottom was not a good mix.  I took my poor b…
