Blast from the Past

Recently I was going through a box of things from my childhood bedroom that my packaged up when she moved. What a Blast from the Past! I’d been thinking of buying a Cabbage Patch Kid for Meebs, but the “vintage” …

Creative Happy Birthday

You may have read in some of my other posts that I very much dislike commercial “Hallmark” greeting cards. I love art cards and homemade cards, complete with a personal message inside. Though I will admit that I’ve on occasion …

CW – Play dough!
