I am starting this blog to keep track of the creative things and ideas on my to-do list.

Boy, I wish I had thought of this year ago - my son's first birthday party theme was "Under the Sea" and I made colored macaroni necklaces for the guests if they wanted to wear them and hand painted each noodle.
Instead The Mother Huddle dyed them instead putting about a half a cup of rubbing alcohol in a bowl and 10-15 drops of food coloring then dumped the macaroni in the mixture to soak and when the desired color achieved, dump on a paper towel lined tray to dry.
This will not be likely something I will use in the near future, but keep in my "Grandma bag" arsenal for a rainy/snowy indoor activity with future grandchildren.
