Astronomy Fluxx is quickly becoming a favorite here At Home. Our budding astronaut, Vada, wants to play it all the time and it’s so fun that I almost always say yes. We’ve been having a blast playing, and we have all learned some interesting facts and dates from this game. Considering we are a family of outer space nerds, that’s saying a lot!

Ficstitches Yarns – Combine two of your favorite hobbies.

| Crafts, Crochet, Review

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Ficstitches Yarns kits say they combine two of your favorites – crochet and reading – but I say it’s three; you can’t forget getting pretties in the mail! After all, what could be more awesome then pretty crochet goodies and a good read in the mail? Maybe if they were delivered with chocolate and a hot beverage by a cute and fluffy dog. However, this is reality, so no delivery puppies.

Stick around ’til the end of this post for a chance to win a Spring 2020 kit – Giveaway ends February 9, 2020.
