Minutes may seem to go by slow or fast, but they are all sweet. Once they are they are gone. Come along with me on my adventure of mom, teacher, and wife.

Mod Podge

For those of you thrifty crafters that love Mod Podge but don't love the price. Here is a formula that is close to Mod Podge. 3 parts white glue (like Elmer's) and one part water.  This solution will not hold up in watery places.  So if it is for something outside or in the bathroom not your solution.   I did run across this recipe that is suppose to be just like Mod Podge by a blog called Crafts On-Line  not sure if it is.  I've never tried it.
Just Like Modge Podge
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. non-self rising flour
1/2 tsp. powdered alum
1 3/4 c. water
1/4 tsp. oil of cinnamon
In medium size pan, mix together sugar, flour and alum.
Gradually add 1 cup water, stirring vigourously to break up lumps.
Boil until clear and smooth, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.
Add remaining water and oil.  Stir until thoroughly mixed.  Put into container with screw on lid.
