Sometimes I have a stubborn streak and for years I have been told that I would love the popular Game of Thrones, but I kept coming up with reasons why I would not like it. One night I decided to watch, and immediately fell in love with the dragons, and the eggs they were growing in.

Creation Crate Review

Creation Crate: Electronic Projects Delivered Each Month + a Giveaway
