“Ora di Punta!“
I just returned from Italy (a hardship, I know!), where I spent 10 wonderful days with my husband and his amazing family.

ThinkFun co-founders Bill Ritchie and Andrea Barthello may be moving into the infomercial-making industry! Check out this silly ad they created over the weekend!
*Note: This “infomercial” was created entirely in fun, certainly not the type of hard-sell marketing approach we take with our products! Sorry, but you won’t see Bill on QVC any time soon [...]
