You Have a Book Inside of You–VIDEO

When given the task of inspiring a group of people to go out into the world and do something, I immediately thought of writing. The written word has influenced me in so many ways. Plus, it goes on influencing people long after the author of those words is no longer living. With this in mind, […]

Traveling by Green Screen–VIDEO

The Educational Spectrum–VIDEO

When explaining the core differences between various types of education, I wanted a physical representation of them.

Since nothing like that existed, I created my Educational Spectrum. I talk […]

World’s Largest Ball of Twine (Made by one man)

From the moment I first heard the Weird Al song “Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota”, I’ve had a strong desire to go and visit that twine ball. When I lived in Iowa (I’m originally from Iowa and Illinois), I came close several times, but the timing just never quite worked. So, when it became […]

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 […]
