So I would take my little creations and [...]

I was in Jim Thorpe, PA with my Husband for my birthday weekend getting ready to hike our favorite place, Glen Onoko falls, and saw that there was a small festival going on around the train tracks. I immediately plastered myself to the window shouting "Look, a Fair! It's [...]

It’s not a race for someone to get there first, we are here to encourage [...]
