Homemade washable sidewalk paint

Ok, so I know this is totally random (that is the name of the page after all) but I found this wonderful recipe for homemade washable sidewalk paint:

1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup cornstarch
about 15 drops food coloring (more or less depending on the intensity of the color you're going for)

Slowly mix the water and cornstarch together keeping the lumps to a minimum. Once all the water and cornstarch are completely mixed, add the food coloring (I did mine 3 or 4 drops at a time to get it to the right shade). The paint is ready to go! Once the kids (or you ;) ) are done using it, simply store in a container with a lid. Because the water and cornstarch may separate between uses, make sure you stir it before each use.

My daughter seems to love it even though it takes a few tries to figure out just how much paint to put on the cement to get it to dry right, lol.

9/11 Giveaway winners!!

First of all, I would just like to say thank you to our wonderful sponsors for generously agreeing to sponsor this giveaway!! There were some beautiful prizes from some very talented people. Thank you so much.

Next, I would like to remind the winners that it is their responsibility to contact the sponsors to claim your prize. I also suggest that, once you notify the sponsor, you also let me know so that, if you contact the sponsor and they don't get your message, I know that you tried and I will not draw a new name. Plus, I have contact information for each sponsor that may vary from what is on Facebook and may be able to help in getting ahold of them.

Finally, each winner will have 72 hours from now to contact the sponsor of their prize or a new name will be drawn. This means that, if a prize has not been claimed by noon (AZ time) on Wednesday, a new name will be drawn.

Thank you for participating and here are the winners:
