Crossroads of Life

enjoy life, rainbow after the storm

I am in the throes of a mid-life crisis, a crossroads of life, if you will. I hope that what I learn along the way will lead me to a place of more personal satisfaction, and will post my experiences in hopes that I can find others who share this journey. Get more from your life; explore who you are, what you want and who you want to be. I am going to share every book and tool I find that helps.

Kids Arts & Crafts and DIY Projects

fun with kids, diy and arts and craftsI love doing crafts and projects with kids, but they are quickly exceeding my skill level, so I am always looking for simple enough projects for us to enjoy together.

entertaining, party balloonsI don’t know what else will land in this section, but it will be a cornucopia of experiences and tools. Hopefully some of these fun things will inspire you as well.
