Pasta...

I had the pleasure of spending this fine Friday dying various shapes of pasta with vinegar and food coloring. This is literately what I did all day until it was time for me to set up for Drawing Club and do the program with the kids.

As you can probably guess, I was in my glory -- I got to play with food coloring and make the office reek of vinegar, which kept that bitch "Sarah" out of the office.

So you're probably asking yourselves why I actually did all of this... Well I decided the other day that I wanted to do a pasta themed storytime with the kids and dying the pasta, then creating pasta necklaces was the craft that "Favorite Volunteer #2" found for me. When I string it up and make the craft demo I'll post a picture.
