I have arthritis in my hands and arms so holding books and tablets in bed is always a struggle. For a while, I had one of those clips that goes across the tops of the pages and includes a book light. That worked, but I read fairly fast, so moving it from page to page was a bother. Making a book ring couldn’t be easier. Sophisticated Salt Dough | make it give it I can totally remember being a kid and making salt dough ornaments at Christmas time. Snowmen, hearts, stars all painted and glittered, albeit a bit lumpy, hanging heavy on the tree. Fun. Thirty plus years later, they're still fun to make and can have a more sophisticated look.
