Naughty & Nice Jell-o Shots

Let’s face it, we all have a bit of naughty and nice inside each and every one of us, and this treat will satisfy either of those urges. For the days when you’re feeling fun but tame, make this as a simple, sweet jell-o cup and share with the kids.

And when your baby boy notices a very cool box… well, what else do you do but create an ugly, fun crawl space for him? (Oh, the things you can do with a box!)

Living well, Voice-Over

Voice-Over vs. Allergies

Voice talents have it pretty rough. Sure, our workday commute starts in our bedroom and ends in our home studio; and yes, we have the option to spend our workdays wearing super-cozy pajamas, if we choose to. But there is a danger out there, lurking in the trees and in the air, creeping into our homes and infecting us – no, debilitating us!!! – before we realize it has even struck.

LARYNGITIS. (dun-dun-dun!) Continue reading “Voice-Over vs. Allergies”
