I just uncovered the oddest thing – a TON of pictures I took for a blog post that I meant to publish last fall….and then completely forgot about it! I can see why – for some reason I have a bajillion photos illustrating the process. Apparently I was delirious! Seeing as how most of my blog posts are WORD heavy. 🙂

Happy play dough making!!!
