When that time comes, and the holidays are close at hand, it is fun to make these great little angel decorations.
They don't need to be angels, they can be snowmen, or cookie cutter people or critters.
Sometimes if your dough gets too dry, just wet your own hands a little bit and knead the dough some more to soften it. I keep it covered while I work. Using a damp paper towel works well.
These are fun to make and can be hung on a Christmas tree or in a window.
