Although the back-to-school commercials have started airing, do not be fooled. Repeat after me: Summer is not over. One way I like to make the most of these carefree days is to share some crafty time with my favourite creative kid. If you don’t have a kid handy (or even if you do), I’ve got […]
It’s been hotter than Hades around here. When I’m not drinking tall iced teas or hiding in air conditioned rooms with all the shades drawn, I’m wishing I had a fan on hand to cool me off. This kind of weather reminds me of two things: my primary school years and the time I spent […]
