I love technology. It makes me giddy. So, when Apple announced that a new iPhone would come out this month, I eagerly pre-ordered one. It came yesterday. I got it set up for accessing my work e-mail. Later in the afternoon, I made a call. Or more correctly, tried to. […]

Do you remember the animal pop-up pals that we make a while ago? My grandkids went crazy and made a bazillion of them. Well, after I made the monster bingo last week, I couldn’t get those little critters out of my mind. I thought they were so cute. What else could […]

Kids love eating and making these fun Jell-O rollups!
This time of year is a great time for fall crafts. (Obviously!) Like making these glitter leaves. Or a leaf wreath. Or, a fall leaf painting with Q-tips. Or stained glass votives.
