Play This Challenging Korean Game

Earlier this week, Gold spray paint jazzes up lots of craft and DIY projectsI wrote about my fun experience using gold spray paint.

Since then, I’ve got a couple more ideas percolating on the back burner that I want to do and share with you. Hopefully, I’ll be able to do them sometime next week. Stay tuned.

It also got me thinking about a Korean game that I recently learned about. The game uses rocks.

Grandma Ideas Link Party 12

Yesterday morning, Come add a link of two at Grandma Ideas Sharing Time Link Party. the weather was pleasant.Mid-50s. Felt like spring. By evening, about an inch of snow had fallen. I just wanted to snuggle in my warm, fuzzy blanket that my daughter gave me for my birthday, sip hot cocoa, and read a good book.
