(For Intergalactic Travelers)
Planet Earth takes 365.25 days to travel around the Sun. These days are divided into 24 hours and grouped by weeks of 7 days. There are 52 weeks in the year. Every fourth year Humans add a 'Leap" day and on that day you can ask someone to marry you. 


Complicated, but that's Earth for you! 

Are you a four armed Galactic visitor who forgot your pajamas?

We have the latest in plaid fashions.

DoodleHATCH joins the FantasyWood Festival as the newest addition to the ManneqART family.

ManneqART is a national arts and education nonprofit organization that inspires creativity, teaches problem solving skills, and rewards excellence in the creation of “Sculpture on the Human Form.” We host an annual competition, skill building workshops, public artwork displays, and an annual awards event.

ManneqART ManneqMADNESS is an annual competition held by ManneqART that presents a simple challenge. Create a “Wearable Sculpture” that falls into one of our four themes. Artists from all over the country attend competition day to have their artwork displayed on a live model and photographed and judged on its artistic merits.


The FantasyWood Festival is a magical 3 day experience being held in Columbia, Maryland.


Come join us for a walk in the woods with surprises around each corner. Meet mermaids and fairies, watch knights duel and even see a live unicorn!
