Guys and Dolls is a swinging good time!

Ogden’s Ziegfeld Theater opened their newest production, Guys and Dolls, to a nearly packed house last night. Strains of Sinatra and Louis Armstrong wafted through the air pre-show, creating anticipation in the crowd. The lush, satin curtain hiding the stage from the audience was a throwback to ‘40s and ‘50s movie palaces, so when it slowly rose the crowd was ready to step back to a time when ‘the war’ was over, hats in public were...

Intro to Glassblowing at Artisan Collective

This post is a long time coming. I took this insanely incredible class a few weeks ago, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it…or looking up torches on Amazon. Artisan Collective is a cool studio packed full of locally made goods and a calendar full of amazing classes where you can brush up on your pottery, painting, silversmithing and yes, glassblowing skills. My teacher, Mike Hurst, was as hilarious as he was...

Silversmithing with Artisan Collective

I love to craft. There I said it. I am a craftaholic, and I will scream it from the rooftops. Crochet, pottery, hell, even scrapbooking now and then when the urge hits. When I found out the Artisan Collective hosts the coolest craft classes around I had to jump in. The first one I took was the copper cuff class followed by a copper enameling class (which you can read about HERE), and our girl Candice took a watercolor class with her...

Indie Ogden Review: Peter and The Starcatcher

Want to take your kids to something fun, whimsical and absolutely hilarious? Peter and The Starcatcher, playing at Ziegfeld Theater, is all of that and more.

Indie Ogden Spotlight: Rolfing Bodywork with Lala at Front Climbing Gym

Last week I went to the Front Ogden, stripped down to my skivvies and tried something new. Lala had me lay on a heated bed filled with crystals and stones and she got to work doing a form of bodywork called Rolfing. So, what is it exactly? Basically, she massaged and moved my muscles back into place. It was strange and very healing all at once. Normally I find myself drifting off to sleep during my massage appointments but this time...
