When I was in high school our Student Council had an annual fundraiser selling little netted bags of Hershey's Kisses for $1.

The week before Valentine's Day students would line up in the lobby to place an order for the object of their affection.

One week later members of the Student Council would travel classroom to classroom showering chocolate popularity upon lucky boys and girls.

I was never one of those lucky boys and girls.

With snow on the ground, snow in the forecast and subzero temperatures keeping everyone indoors, St. Louis parents are starting to go a little crazy. For many of us, this potentially never ending winter break has now lasted for more than two weeks. And if you’re anything like me, you’re anxiously awaiting the day when school will start again.
 

Halloween used to be so easy. When I was seven my Mom made me a lion costume that I wore every year until I was twenty three. Some years we'd pair it with a princess crown or cowboy boots to give me a little variety, but there was never any discussion about what I was going to be.

On November 4, the grounds of Laumeier Sculpture Park will be filled with 500 elementary school students from across the St. Louis area. These incredible children, many of whom have never met one another, will experience a life-changing connection – through their laughter, their dance and one very, very long red cord.

I’m not crafty. I wish I was, but I’m not.

When it comes to creating a personalized or handmade gift, my skills are limited to gluing wobbly eyes onto my husband’s used socks. Thankfully, the St. Louis region is bursting with talented women who have the creativity and business savvy to bring to life beautiful and affordable children’s gifts.

The St. Louis Artists' Guild will host this craft market featuring local, well-made, handmade and interesting items. Saturday, March 13 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, March 14 from 10 .m. to 4 p.m. at the St. Louis Artists' Guild, at the corner of Big Bend and Clayton Roads in Oak Knoll Park, Clayton.
