Well, yesterday we started working on our Cinnamon Dough Ornaments. I have to say we will never make these again. Most people are just more able to pull off these crafts. I am hopelessly craft-LESS. I'm also very tactile oriented, and the feel of the dough was more than I could handle. And I smell cinnamon everywhere.
I baked them last night, and they are sitting on the counter waiting to be shellacked and then decorated. I don't know where the shellac is, so we will have to wait for Gregg to get it out of his shop. Actually, I may get Gregg to shellac them so that I don't smell shellac and cinnamon all day. Then we will decorate with glitter glue. I thought about going ahead and decorating with the glue, but decided against it. The shellac should keep the glitter glue from soaking into the ornament.
Actually, they may turn out nice yet. I'll post again when we've finished and give an update.
In my next post, I will post how we have made ornaments in the past.
