A lot of things have changed about Christmas since I was a child of the 60's. First, we could hardly wait for the official start of the Christmas season - that was the day the Christmas Wish Book arrived in our mailbox. Once it arrived, it was open season on the circling and recircling of the toys we hoped Santa would bring.
While the colors of fall are vibrant and something I look forward to every year, this beautiful display of Nature’s wonders also reminds me that it’s time for cold and flu season. That means it’s time to prepare to stay well and avoid catching either of them.
Who hasn't dreamed of adventures on the high seas? Now, kids can set sail for adventure on this amazing PLAYMOBIL Cruise Ship! Not only does this toy look fabulous, but with features like the lower deck pullouts, it's the perfect stage for a whole lot of imaginative play!

But while you may be excited about joining in the fun, it can be quite daunting knowing what tools to use or buy and how to go beyond simple paintings to begin to create little works of art to leave for others.
I was shopping on Zulily today, something I seem to do almost every day, and I came across several wall stencils for a laundry room and I realized they are about the truest quotes I've ever read. They're versions of something I've said to myself many times over the years and close to the advice I try to give parents when they lament about the piles of laundry that come with each new child.
