We will be out and about camping this week and I'll be posting some tips and tricks I've learned in the years that I've been camping.  Keep an eye out for giveaways to Flat Stanley and Dayspring Dash!

Keep a Watchful Eye! 

The calendar will slowly begin to repopulate with in person events and we will keep virtual events too. Many of the usual events we would normally see during the summer have been canceled and will not resume again till next year. Some have just rescheduled. Keep an eye out I will be verifying events asap and regularly.  We will update you as we get information. Most updates will happen on Facebook and here. 

Online Events and Gatherings that are open to all are welcome on our calendar. Do you have a virtual class, A virtual event, Something fun for everyone?  Post it on our calendar at

Don't forget to checkout Facebook too for other events that have been popping up randomly since the State has changed the Stay at home quarantine to the Safer at home guideline.

If you have other things you want to see Mac Kid do drop me an email. If you want to partner with Mac Kid I'd love to hear from you.

Remember with any event, If the weather looks questionable, - Always check in with the event itself to be sure the event is still on! You can call or text me as well. ESPECIALLY IN SPRING AND FALL. Now that COVID has come please comply with the COVID guidelines requested by each establishment and organizer. If you have a question with their policies pleases contact them directly.

If you have the newsletter you only have part of the fun! I post on Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, Instagram with holiday and everyday crafts, recipes, special offers, contests, news and new events. (see the tabs on the right or at the bottom to visit the social site)
