Not only do aging, poorly-designed office buildings do a terrible job at keeping the people within them comfortable, they are energy sieves that are expensive to operate and maintain.

I love doing craft projects with my children that we can also enjoy when we celebrate upcoming holidays and the coming of spring is no exception. Spring provides so many fun and different ways to get creative without using too much time and precious energy.
