Friday Favorites–Welcome to the Jungle

I’m about to show my age here, but if you’re familiar with the song title I’m using, bonus points to you.  When my daughter was a tiny little thing, she used to sing it with her dad.  It was the cutest thing ever.  Today is that same girl’s birthday, and while she would (and does)…

Star Wars Hair Clips or Shoe Toppers

As you probably know by now, every couple of months I write an article for Undercover Tourist’s blog.  If you’re not familiar with them, Undercover Tourist sells tickets for Disney World and other amusement parks at a better rate than you’re likely to find anywhere else.  They also like to share Disney crafts with their…
