Rock Paper Scissors: My Craft Room

It’s been three years since we purchased our first family home.

Dear Diary: What Are We Teaching Our Girls?

Just the other day I was invited to a “high-profile” child fashion show. I don’t want to delve into that many details and get myself into trouble and mention the brand, but I was really angry with the answers the “celebrity” provided the audience with. Which makes me wonder…WHAT are we teaching our future generation […] Read more…

Venue Review: Build A Bear Workshop!

For years and years I have been walking by the Build-A-Bear-Workshop display window at various shopping malls, but never managed to bring myself to enter the store.
