Project day! Project Day! Project Day! I love Project day! A chance to sink myself into something creative without feeling guilty about all the other chores I’m not getting done. I know some of you hear the word “project” and begin to cringe at the thought of being creative. I on the other hand go into dreamland at the thought of working on a project. This past week I planned, prepared and created with my sons Tiger Scout Den. Each scout needed to make a space themed centrepiece to use at the upcoming banquet. I was thrilled to help out with such a project. They turned out pretty good if I do say so myself!
