Yahoo! I'm back with another awesome Craftster Quickie! This time around I am making Air Dry Votive Holders. You can use these to decorate a seasonal table or mantle. I have to admit, I tried a lot of different clays and techniques to get the votives to look just right. I almost gave up! I am so happy with the way they turned out.

Check out the video to make your own. Don't forget to post them so everyone can see your awesomeness!

The materials you will need are:
air dry clay (I used DAS-it worked the best for me)
rolling pin
cutting board
nail file
knife
permanent pin or paint pen
cookie cutters
tea lights
various size cardboard tubes

7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Shrimp and Crab Bisque on: September 30, 2019 09:27:21 AM
This is the easiest soup you will ever make! I love whipping up a batch on a cold fall or winter day. I usually make it for our traditional New Year's
Eve dinner. I usually serve it in bread bowls because you know..bread bowls.



Shrimp and Crab Bisque
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules (this is one cube, crushed)
2 tablespoons finely chopped onions
garlic to taste
1 1/2 cup half and half cream
1/2 pound shrimp
1/2 pound crab
1/2 cup white wine

In a saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, bouillon granules, onion and garlic.
Blend in 3/4 cup of half and half into the mixture.
Mix in shrimp and crab
Turn temperature to medium/medium high heat, stirring until mixture thickens
Blend in the remaining half and half (the other 3/4 cup) and wine into the mixture. Allow to thicken a little more. The whole process takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
