As I have written and said many times,
I am constantly impressed by the inventiveness and sheer creativity of our Mexican friends and neighbors.
Summer is here! Which means it's time to hydrate! Consequently, it means an ample supply of plastic water bottles for crafting!
Recently, I had a young client request a CHiPS party. The birthday boy was turning 10. I thought this was a tiny bit odd, since the new CHiPS movie, starring Max Pena and Dax Shepard, is definitely not G-rated, or even PG-13 for that matter. However, his mother explained, with a slightly embarrassed grin, that it wasn't the movie he was into, but the old, 1970's TV show!
What's more fun than drawing pictures with chalk on your driveway, then washing them away with water balloons! The answer? Making your own red, white and blue chalk of course!
I will be the first to admit, I am not what you would call a “girly girl”. I’m not into manicures, or facials, or spa treatments. What I am into is science! I love things that bubble, spark, and brew! I love things that have texture and smell. I love mixing ingredients and watching them turn into something new. Which is why, despite having no interesting in actually using these products, I really enjoy making homemade spa supplies.
