Here in the South, it’s plenty warm – in the high 80’s and low 90’s each day. With the kids home, they need to blow of some steam with outdoor activities. Starlux Games to the rescue. My grand kids are loving Sharks & Minnows!
From Starlux Games:
Starlux Games, creates engaging glow-in-the-dark games that motivate kids to put aside their screens and interact with each other in real life, in real time and in the great outdoors.Their glow based outdoor games—inspired by classic group activities—are designed to be played outside in the evenings, just at the time when other options are scarce and kids are more apt to turn to tech for their entertainment.Starlux Games wants to help kids of all ages, and families as a whole, to get moving, get outside, get thinking and get them interacting! Team based games that get the whole family moving and enjoying the great outdoors are good for everyone’s body, mind and spirit!After nine years teaching high school and watching kids become more and more disengaged with their surroundings and each other, Judd King came up with the idea for Starlux Games: “I wanted to create something that I would have loved as a kid—but also something that would be so incredibly engaging and dynamic that kids and teens would actually put their phones down and interact with each other.”—Judd KingStarlux Games mission is to create ways for families and friends to engage with each other in active outdoor play that includes teamwork, strategy and lots of excitement.

Social Distancing doesn’t mean that you can’t keep in touch, and snail mail will brighten a special someone’s day for sure. And with Pop Up Cards from Cardology, that special someone will know that they are loved…this Easter or for any holiday!!!
Cardology Ltd provides hand-crafted pop-up greetings cards.
I first discovered the art of Kirigami on my travels. I was blown away with similar pop up cards that I had seen and was fascinated with how they are constructed. Within a week of me returning back to London, myself and my sister, purchased books and craft tools and started to practice making these pop-up cards.
My sister is a former engineer – which explains how she picked up this art incredibly quickly! We started by downloading templates off the internet and looking at designs in books to learn this craft – so we won’t take credit for all of the amazing designs we have in our shop :), but we have now started to create our own designs, which is incredibly rewarding.
From an initial idea to creating the template takes over 1 month, with constant iterations of the template until we are happy with the 3D design. This takes countless attempts of printing the template and cutting/folding until the image pops out 3D. If we are unhappy, we get back to template to modify it and start the process again! To get the professional finish, the templates are printed and cut to high quality card with a laser printer/cutter and assembled.
We decided to turn this hobby into a business (and escape the corporate world) to see if we could spread this beautiful art to the public and so far the response and demand for them has been amazing!
We hope you love these cards as much as we have loved learning the craft and making them!
I love these bags…being able to shop, wash, and reuse is especially important at this trying time. I feel safer knowing that I’m using bags that I’ve cleaned, and It’s good for the environment too. They are really sturdy and hold a lot. Just last week I went to a farmers market. I was able to shop in the fresh air and sunshine, get some great produce and my SOL + SPIRIT bags held all my purchases. I plan to use them for all my shopping from this point forward!

Lots of options for Easter giving. Individually wrapped soaps, just the right size to add to Easter Baskets.
From SOAP CAULDRON
Our company, Soap Cauldron is the creative ground from which all our soap creations originate. We are family owned and operated and located in beautiful Northern California and we’ve been making natural herbal soaps in small batches for our family and friends as the Three Sisters Apothecary and Soapy Tails brands since 1999. The art of alchemy best describes what we do. Our handcrafted bar soaps are made in the time-honored tradition of the first soap guilds of 7th century Europe. Now just as it was then each bar is handmade in small batches with only natural botanicals, pure essential oils and gourmet butters. From the early recipes coveted by these guilds, these beneficial ingredients nourish and support skin daily.We incorporate ingredients from nature into our cauldron and transform them into nourishing and gentle soaps that gently cleanse and pamper the skin. We know that in this fast-paced world the simplicity of nature is often forgotten. We bring back that reverence for nature with our products. The natural plant oils we select are pure and chosen for the unique properties they impart to our bars. These oils are gently heated with finely ground nurturing botanicals that will infuse their benefits to the finished soap bar.What makes our brand unique:· We are community based, and family owned. We care about transparency and simplicity.· We use only natural ingredients which is why we only make anhydrous (oil based) products.· Our products are made naturally and packaged environmentally with the smallest carbon footprint possible.
Let’s not forget our four legged friends this year…Your Pups! Kibble “reimagined”. Subscription dog food, delivered to your door.
From New Roads:
In our family, we had something called “the big idea.” It evolved over the years, founded in our mission to serve our customers—with integrity and transparency—fresh, safe, and locally-made food for their family dog.Our “big idea” was to set the bar for pet foods at a place where it hadn’t been set before: What could we do to make the best possible product on the market? Food that’s not incrementally better, but a kind of quantum leap in terms of quality. A level of quality primarily used for people (human edible) but developed very specifically to offer dog parents the most nutritious food available for their four-legged family.We believe in transparency; that the more you know about how your pet’s food is made and what goes into it, the better off the both of you are.
