Mirror Mirror
If you're interested in seeing your creations - graphic or otherwise - in an objective way, hold the item up in front of and facing a mirror from a distance of 3 to 5 feet.. You'll be better able to critique your item and tell where another detail may be added, or another color repeated, or an area needs to be broken up with an addition of something.I rely on this method with everything I make and it never fails to give me success!

How to Make Your Own Dried Apple Slices
Tuesday, October 03, 2006
Dried Apple Slice

Now you can have that aroma of fresh apple pie in your kitchen- that smell that is so irrestible. Dried apple slices are easy to make by following a few simple instructions

8-10 apples ( I find Red Romas work the best)
3/4 cup of lemon juice
2 tsp. of salt
8 tsp. of ground cinnamon
2 tsp. of ground allspice
1 tsp of ground cloves

Combine the lemon juice and salt in a large bowl

Peel and core the apples and cut into slices about 1/4 inch thick

Soak the slices of apples in the lemon juice and salt for about 5 minutes making sure all of the slices are covered with the liquid.

Place slices on a paper towel and pat dry as much as possible

Combine the cinnamon, allspice and cloves mixing thoroughly and then sprinkle both sides of the apple slices with this mixture.

Place slices in a single layer on a cookie sheet

Dry in a 150 degree oven for about 6 hours- they should be thoroughly dried and pliable but not brittle

These apple slices will be perfect to craft with ..add them to wreaths, garlands, arrangements and potpourri....the smell is will be like having fresh apple pie everyday without the baking !
