My very resourceful daughter is the first one in the family who got into this.  Unbeknownst to me, she found some of her old tights that she's outgrown and cut them so she can wear them as arm socks around the… Continue reading Warm Arms Not Arm Wars

Voila!  A new product line was born. These babies… Continue reading Personalized Keychains

Waterproof Jackets

Math and writing weren't exactly my daughter's favorite classes in 5th grade. That all changed when she started going to Sylvan Learning Center. More than the high grades she's been getting in her classes, she gained her confidence back. She now wants to be a military plane engineer. She also loves writing short stories especially… Continue reading Waterproof Jackets
