Happy Sweet Sixteen, Zoe!

Today is my oldest daughter’s 16th birthday! Happy Birthday, Zoe! To celebrate, she hosted a 30-second flash mob at the Great Mall in Milpitas, CA. At precisely noon, everyone we invited (who was available) froze in place like statues at the food court. Being part of a freezing flash mob has been one of Zoe’s […]

How to Make: Fun (Quick and Easy) T-shirt for Dad — using a Bleach Pen

Trying to come up with Father’s Day crafts for my Girl Scout troop this year was quite a challenge!  We’ve been making crafty things together for nearly eight years and it seems like we’ve made everything there is to be made.  Then, I thought, it’s been a LOOOONG time since we’ve decorated t-shirts…  To do […]
