I’m no photographer but Jennifer Pearson is and at a Panasonic LUMIX event she shared some great tips on how to take good pictures.

We make efforts at home through small measures of going green but it’s also important to teach our children about the relationship we have with the Earth and to respect the environment around us.

 Winter is in full swing. Now kids can see just how much snow is on the ground with this fun craft that was inspired by Pink and Green Mama. Instead of being a small snowman ruler, we made ours an actual stake for the ground and used Arctic creatures for inspiration.

You’ve bought the gifts and the stocking stuffers, now the wrapping begins! But all those people on your gift giving list can mean a lot of boxes to wrap. The paper looks nice under the tree or when you present it to a friend but how long is the gift going to stay wrapped?
