Harvest // REVIEW

This is such a gem of a book -- so much more than just a coffeetable book or a collection of pretty pictures (although it is both of those!). This one is stunning in every way. The "unexpected projects using 47 extraordinary garden plants" aren't one note, they aren't out of reach for the average gardener, and they're actually really useful and fun ideas too. I loved this book and will be coming back to it time and time again as the year goes on and I can add more of these plants to my garden to do these projects with!

Punderdome // REVIEW

This game seemed to be right up my alley-- I'm a HUGE pun lover and find few things funnier than an unexpected and well-executed pun. Plus, it was a fun change of pace to try out a game instead of reading a book! Here's the thing about this game: it takes serious commitment and dedication and the right frame of mind. It's not a casual game. You need to gather your wittiest friends, probably have a few drinks to get the creative juices flowing, and really dial into your funniest self, because it's no joke (ha!). Overall, not my favorite game as it just took a LOT of concentration and thinking to really craft new puns from the two randomly matched words each round, but if you're fired up and feeling particularly punny, this is great and very entertaining game to have on hand!
