    I love the idea of doing a handprint ornament of my baby’s handprint! Maybe I will do a magnet of it too. The butterfly magnets are beautiful, but I am not sure I am talented enough to pull that off!

    I remember making Christmas decorations with salt dough when my children were young – and that’s donkeys years ago! We had great fun and they even lasted a few years which surprised me.
