What to do this weekend: 1/20 - 1/22

Thursday, January 19, 2017 6:00 PM by Calista Klein

Happy Friday, Pierce County!
This time of year one of my favorite things to do is try something new and creative. The cloudy skies make being inside so appealing, but I don't want to just sit around indoors all weekend! Luckily, scattered throughout Pierce County there are plenty of creative enterprises who can help artistically challenged individuals like myself create something to display in my home, drink my morning coffee out of, or even give as a gift to a friend with an upcoming birthday!
