I will use this installment in the Pack-O-Fun SeriesÂ to celebrate Easter. This year Easter falls on April Fools Day. I sure hope the Easter Bunny doesn’t play any funny business – were looking forward to our baskets and annual Easter egg hunt.Â this year we plan on modeling the Pak-O-Fun example for creating “Dressed Up Easter Eggs”
We have ourÂ constructionÂ paper ready, along with our scissors and tape. I will postÂ an update to share the outcomes. Happy Easter!

I love vintage shopping at bookstore and thrift stores. There are a few online shops I love to peek in on too. On a recent outing,Â I stopped by a favorite local, independent, thrift shop. I could hang out in the book section of this Tempe thrift shop called Gracie’s, forever. I can never figure out how they always have so many vintageÂ books and magazines. It is incredible.Â On this recent trip, I found a pile of craft magazines called Pack-O-Fun “The Only Scrap-Craft Magazine” The whole collection is from the 1950’s. The paper is aged,Â foxing and is brittle but oh the treats I found inside!
I am going to have to shareÂ my favorite interior pages in a series because there are so many! I will kick it off with this cardboard camper gem. I love the illustration as much as the project.
Unless you live under a rock you that that on Monday (August 21, 2017) there will be a massive solar eclipse. Â We will all be here to experience it so why not take it a step further an participate in a NASA experiment.Â NASA is inviting eclipse viewers around the country to participate in a nationwide science experiment by collecting cloud and air temperature data and reporting it via their smart phones.

If you are interested do it now because in order to participate, you have to first download the GLOBE Observer app and register to become a citizen scientist. The app will instruct you on how to make the observations. Second, you will need to obtain a thermometer to measure air temperature.Â Observations will be recorded on an interactive map.
My husband, upon the request of our youngest, mixed up a batch of cocoa colored pancake mix and made emoji poo pancakes. These were the hit of the slumber party for sure! He used a squeeze body to draw the poo shaped pancakes and in a stroke of genius he used peanuts for the eyes!
