Holiday Inn at Shaw Festival

We loved watching Holiday Inn at Shaw Festival. As director, Kate Hennig notes in a world plagued by anxiety and fear we feel guilty to enjoy simple pleasures like looking at the blue skies, going for an old-fashioned walk, enjoying the holidays. This musical reminds us to take the time to be happy in our pursuit of happiness!

Win Your Own Kits to Give as Handmade Gifts for the Holidays

It is always special when the gifts we get especially from our children are handmade. This shows how much effort, love, and care they put into making it. My children and I got a chance to use and play with awesome Klutz Kits that provide fun activities for everyone over 8. Since 1977 Klutz creates activity kits that come with all the materials and instructions we need to make fabulous crafts. I think these kits are wonderful for both children and adults alike who enjoy doing crafts or learning how to do crafts. The end products of what we make using the material and inspiration from these kits can be given as gifts to loved ones.
