Fun craft kits for adults

#image_title

As a crafty person, and one who dreams of world domination, I like to spread the love of crafting to others. Creative play boosts your brain power and mental health, yet we don’t tend to engage in it when we’re adults. This holiday season, force some creative play on your loved ones, for their own… Continue reading Fun craft kits for adults

Get moving with my favorite workout guru

I usually curate content that involves sitting on your ass, so to balance it out, this month I compiled a list of workouts. For me, working out at home is optimal. If I have to leave the house to exercise, I probably won’t. Since I don’t have the space for equipment like an elliptical machine… Continue reading Get moving with my favorite workout guru

Color your vision with a Jell-O cake

I love to eat desserts, which I think is what led me to love making them. Thanks to the public library, I discovered the recently published cookbook “Baking Yesteryear“: a selection of desserts, some odd, that were popular in each decade since the 20s.

My Big Book of Grievances

Have you heard about how great it is to practice gratitude? JK – you’ve probably heard this so many times that the word gratitude makes you cringe. At my last job, my department head actually suggested we keep a gratitude journal: “Be grateful even though it sucks to work here so I won’t have to… Continue reading My Big Book of Grievances

Succulents for the plant challenged

My mom has a house full of beautiful flowering plants. They’re all fake, but they seem so real you can almost feel the extra oxygen churning through your lungs. Mom passed the brown thumb on to me, so if I want greenery, mine also has to be fake. There are artificial plants and flowers galore… Continue reading Succulents for the plant challenged

The one where I recommend Friends-related stuff on Etsy

On Etsy, the Friends-obsessed can find a million Friends-themed handcrafted items. Sadly, this results in quite the slog if you want to peruse every option for that perfect piece of fandom. I’m a giver, so I did the work for you by compiling a list of my favorite Etsy off-the-beaten-path Friends items. Monica’s turkey bath… Continue reading The one where I recommend Friends-related stuff on Etsy
