Pomtastic Party Puns
I was gutted to see yet another grim, grey sky this morning. We were due to do some after-hours work on the craft party this evening, and I was hoping to get some photos of our samples. The sun was clearly on our side though, as it graced us with its presence just in time...

One of our Craft Lounge activities will be making pom-poms with our fancy pom-pom makers! Pom-poms aren't just for bobble...
