Recently, I had a young client request a CHiPS party. The birthday boy was turning 10. I thought this was a tiny bit odd, since the new CHiPS movie, starring Max Pena and Dax Shepard, is definitely not G-rated, or even PG-13 for that matter. However, his mother explained, with a slightly embarrassed grin, that it wasn't the movie he was into, but the old, 1970's TV show!
I will be the first to admit, I am not what you would call a “girly girl”. I’m not into manicures, or facials, or spa treatments. What I am into is science! I love things that bubble, spark, and brew! I love things that have texture and smell. I love mixing ingredients and watching them turn into something new. Which is why, despite having no interesting in actually using these products, I really enjoy making homemade spa supplies.
Some time ago I wrote a blog about how it seemed everything was getting smaller. Well, it seems times have changed. Is it just me or is everything getting bigger?
Recently we helped facilitate a Western Themed School Mixer. The idea was to combine classes from a local all-boys and all-girls school. This would give the families of the 2020 graduates a chance to mingle and get to know one another. There was a mechanical bull, laser tag shoot out at the OK Corral, a western-themed crafting corner, and family photos in the “poke”.
One of the big hits of the day was our “Happy Trails” trail mix bar.
