Beginner Chainmaille – European 4 in 1 and 6 in 1 Chains

This is a post for all those interested in chainmaille but not quite sure where to begin. Look no further, this is a great place to start, with a discussion on basic chains. I picked these two because they are simple and relatively the same, so if you can master one, you will definitely be…

Banana Split Muffins

A Post from my sister Amanda. Who will be occasionally be sharing her thoughts, progress and techniques on her creative projects. A family favourite in this house is muffins. The height of the muffin obsession when my son was a toddler. We have had a variety of meals focused around egg, pizza, and banana split…

WTF (What the Fish) Card Game

This a simple card game for Ages 8 and Up and can be played with 2 to 6 Players. My nephew got me this one for Christmas and we played quite a few rounds. It was only four of us and I think it might be better with five or six but it was still…

Chainmaille Christmas Ornaments

I love making ornaments, looking around my craft stash this year and found I had an excessive amount of chainmaille supplies left over from other projects. This project is a bit loose, consider it more of a guide. The results were fantastic, the look is very cool and it’s easy to put together. First go…

Blockbuster

Blockbuster is an amazing game that game that came out this year. If you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift, a game for any family dinner or an evening with friends, I recommend picking up a copy. It will take about half an hour to play and is for ages 14 and up….

I’ve owned a copy of Jungle Speed for over 10 years. I remember playing it at a game night, before I really started building a collection and buying it almost immediately after. At that point as a non gamer, that was fairly significant. Now I’ll buy a game without thinking twice, I’m at the game…

Hot Chocolate Bar

It’s December, up here in Canada it’s starting to get cold. One of my favourite ways to celebrate the season is to set up a hot chocolate bar, whether it be for a work potluck, evening party or just a weekend treat. Overall it’s a cute look at a very low cost. Obviously the first…

Cranium Brain Break

I’ve already talked about Cranium and Cranium After Dark.  Now its time to add a different cranium game to the mix.  Cranium Brain Break.  This is very similar to Cranium After Dark, I felt Cranium After Dark wasn’t marketed well to the right group of people.  Whereas Cranium Brain Break has a larger audience with…

The Classics – Sorry!

Sorry! is a game I grew up playing, it was easy as a child to pick up and a lot of fun. As an adult I still feel the same way. For me there’s a bit of nostalgia attached so I could be biased, but who doesn’t like mischievously saying sorry. This is a simple…
