London: Summer Travel Wardrobe

The Packing Challenges: As the London departure date was fast approaching, I had to pack something for my trip…. for thirteen days…in the summer…and in a carry on.  Okay, so London is typically rainy.  Even in the summer.  Easy.

Simplicity 2153 Silly Putty Jacket

Am I dating myself if I ask you about the color of Silly Putty?  You know, the dirty, well-loved Silly Putty after it has been used on newsprint a few times.  Looks a little gross, but it provided lots of fun for me when I was a kid….and there is interesting history of the gooey […]
