Recently, she met a friend who loves unique games the way she does and finally got to play a mystery game! [Read more…]
Two months until Christmas! Oh, my!! Each year, like most of you, I commit to being “ready” with homemade gifts, fun wrapping ideas, cute decorations… And yet I find myself scrambling the second week of December. Sometimes I think that’s what the holiday is about — scrambling, doing more than we humanly should, losing sleep, stuffing ourselves on the day, and determining to do “better” next year. This year (famous last words) will be different. The only thing I want scrambling is my omelet!
So here’s my plan and hopefully, you find something here for yourself: [Read more…]

We don’t make a habit of telling you items to buy. This blog is about recipes, DIY projects and helpful tips but the E-Cloths are changing our lives and so we had to pass it on to our readers. We didn’t believe it. It was just too good to be true. If someone told you there was an easier way to clean windows, even in direct sun, with no streaking, AND the product was reusable up to 300 times making it environmentally friendly, would YOU believe it? Exactly. We didn’t either. Until we tried e-cloths! [Read more…]
