If you have kids, you have likely witnessed first-hand this whirling, twirling, supposedly attention-strengthening product known as the Fidget Spinner.  The “toy” was actually invented in the 1990’s by Catherine Hettinger, a Floridian, who created it with the intention of helping children with ADHD and Autism.

It may be a tiny bit early to start tooting the Fourth of July horn, but I know that within a blink of an eye, June will be over, and the 4th will be upon us.  In year’s past, I have literally missed getting out a 4th of July “you made it” out due to this phenomenon, so this year I decided I’d start early.

It’s that time again!  

Time for the 4th Annual Summer Crafting Tour!

This year we’ll be going around the San Francisco Bay Area doing a variety of crafts!  We’ll be doing duct tape messenger bags, orbeez stress balls, and even some Summer of Love tye dye.

Do you know the difference between Memorial and Veteran’s Day?  If you had to pause before answering, you’re not alone.  Both holidays are meant to honor those that have served in the United States Armed Forces. The difference is that Memorial Day honors those who have given their lives in the service of our Country.  Veteran’s Day honors those that are still alive.  So, although the sentiment may be there, you don’t really want to wish a veteran a “Happy Memorial Day”.  

Many years ago, we used to take what we termed floral gel, dye it with color, place it in a clear glass container, add a submersible LED light and call it a fabulous neon centerpiece.
