RIGHT NOW, WE’RE SITTING ON THE TARMAC AT SAN FRANCISCO AIRPORT waiting (and waiting and waiting) to finally take off and get home. But as with any good trip, we all wish more than anything that we could stay just a little bit longer. We came out West this weekend for a family wedding/mini vacation, and we packed in as much of each as possible. What made this trip even more special? It was the first time my parents, my sister and her family, and my own visited the California branch of our clan together . Watching the boys and their cousins jostle for the best view from the trolley and show off their smooth moves on the dance floor, I couldn’t help but think, “Yes! THIS! This is a…

a real surprise

Getting Her Start It all began with a cheeseburger made of cereal! Siskin remembers having an overwhelming impulse to make one. “When I finally stacked all the pieces together, I thought it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen. I posted a photo on Instagram, where I broke 100 likes for the first time.” That’s when she knew she was onto something. (She wasn’t wrong: Her@misterkrispaccount now has nearly 50,000 followers!) Finding Her Medium “I started with Rice Krispies Treats because they were the only thing I knew how to make,” Siskin recalls. Now she loves them because they’re the perfect blank canvas for adding color and sculpting into shapes. Gathering Her Inspiration The day her Instagram account went live, custom order requests came pouring in. Siskin says she gets ideas from pop culture and…

WHAT YOU’LL NEED • 6 to 8 pieces of driftwood • Parachute cord (available at craft stores) • Duct tape WHAT TO DO 1. Lay out your design on a towel or drop cloth, rearranging the driftwood as needed to fit all the natural curves together. Our pieces ranged in size from 6 to 12 inches long. 2. Double-knot one end of the cord around the outer piece of driftwood (the cord should be about three times as long as the width of the wood). Position the knot on the back. Weave under and over the sticks until you reach the end, then reverse to weave back to the starting place.…
