Zombie Mom a la Martha Stewart

I see you came back for more....that's very cool! I would like to share a webseries with you called 'Tiny Clues' written by Aidan Wilson. Consider it an ode to 'Goosebumps', a series of children's horror fiction novels by American author R. L. Stine. I play a very proper and perfect mom who somehow turns into a zombie mom! I met Aidan when he was casted to play my son for a stage play at the Huntington Playhouse in Bay Village, Ohio around the year 2007.

Think Martha Stewart Ever Accidentally Cooked Her Centerpiece?

When it comes to holiday decor, I (admittedly) do not know where the line between "tasteful" and "redonkulous" lies.

Oh wait … they light up and twinkle, too? Well, that's just dipped in awesome sauce right there....more
