It’s cold, everyone has cabin fever, and it seems we’ve had more snow days, holidays, and teacher-in-service days than school days as of late.

What’s a mama to do?! Host a Craft Olympics of course!

Here are today’s events: Yarn Curling, UFO (unfinished objects) Figure Skating, and Cross Country Snowboard Finger Knitting. We’ll be featuring some prominent US crafters in this update, as well as some Olympic-themed crafts & activities for kids.
