From Living on a Dime:

Face Paint
1 tsp. corn starch
1/2 tsp. water
1/2 tsp. cold cream
food coloring

Mix all ingredients together in an old muffin pan and you are ready
to paint. This amount makes one color.

Fake Wound1 Tbsp Vaseline
cocoa powder
2-3 drops red food coloring

Place Vaseline in a bowl. Add food coloring. Blend with a
toothpick. Stir in a pinch of cocoa to make a darker blood color.
Separate tissue. Using 1 layer, tear a 2x3 inch piece and place at
wound site. Cover with petroleum jelly and mold into the shape of a
wound. The center should be lower than the sides. Fill the center
with the red petroleum jelly mixture. Sprinkle center with some
cocoa. Sprinkle a little around the edges of the wound to make

Wormy Apples
6 apples
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
1/2 tsp. each ground cinnamon and nutmeg
6 gummy worms
1 cup whipping cream,(optional)

Core apples from blossom ends, leaving stem ends intact. Mix
raisins and walnuts and stuff into cavities of cored apples. Set
apples, stems up in a 9x13 pan. In a saucepan, mix brown sugar,
water, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir over high heat until
mixture boils. Pour hot syrup around apples. Bake, uncovered, at
350 degrees, basting occasionally with syrup, until apples are
tender when pierced and skin begins to crack, 30 to 35 minutes.
Remove apples from oven; cool in pan at least 10 minutes.

Set each apple in a small bowl and spoon syrup around fruit. In the
top of each apple, cut a hole large enough for one of the candy
worms and tuck one end into each apple, leaving most of the worm
dangling. Offer cream to pour over apples. Makes 6 servings.

About Me

My photo
As long as I'm on this journey, rambling through life's exhilarating highs and trudging heavily amongst it's incapacitating lows, I might as well share whatever may be gleaned from my little bits of wisdom and my many missteps. No room for judgment from this broken mama. I'm writing from my heart: raw, open, messy, but saved. And I'm still thanking God!
