    Self Care Sunday: Do something you’re bad at

    I am someone who is a bit of an overachiever. I’m definitely Type-A, where the A stands for my Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

  • Creative Saturday: DIY Anti-Static Spray

    Fall is my favorite time of year—the trees are changing, the air is brisk, and I can finally use my oven all the time again. The only thing I don’t like is constantly getting zapped by static electricity. It’s bad enough at home (where I accidentally zap my cats on their noses every time I pet them, poor things), but…
