Overwhelmed with a preschooler? Create Play-Dough

 A few weeks ago I was exhausted.  Not physically, but emotionally.  I'm not blaming this entirely on my three-year-old little Cutie, but I will say that my word limit had been reached (both speaking and listening) by probably 10am...and all I could think was "we have the rest of the day to go..."
Near tears, (not joking) with a strong desire to clean something, I sat down and put my head in my hands. 
What to do.
Got up to put dishes away and invited Cutie to help.  We were putting the roller away and she asked, "can we use this and make bread?"
Great idea!  But instead of bread I pulled out an oooooooooooold recipe from a cookbook I've had for many years and we cooked the Play-Dough together and Wah-Lah!  TWO HOURS she played with this stuff!  NO JOKE.  We have an idea to make them for all of the party attenders for her birthday party next month...if we are so motivated.

In more business-related is my table at my first Expo Event.  I've never done a craft fair or this was brand-brand new.  I wasn't sure how it would go, but I just wanted to show interested people about the ways that I recycle things to make my own art designs for usable purposes.  I actually loved sharing and talking to everyone who stopped by my table.  Because I loved it and can see myself doing something similar in the future, I may look into opportunities to attend more craft fairs and the Downtown Market.  No one was really interested in the Video Productions...but I may be a little ahead of my time on that.  It's too bad, because I think families (and future generations) would appreciate such video preservation.  Oh well, more time to create for me!

So, a few more pictures of our recent Fall happenings:
Can you find her?

A trip to the Country Pantry & Sam's for some Fall Treats!
Why she's a Cutie.
