What a treat! I have been up early every morning since my Awe-manac arrived to indulge in creativity before breakfast, and set a positive and uplifting tone for my day. The variety of prompts and exercises each day give me a chance to play with something familiar(like collage/mixed media), or maybe with something that stretches my creative wings(me? write poetry?, why not?!). I also enjoy the quotes, humor, and playfulness of the illustrations. I can envision this becoming one of my "well-loved" books, a bit battered from lots of use, always nearby and available for another creative adventure.

THE AWE-MANAC delivers on the promise of its name: 459 pages created with a daily dose of awe,delight,& wonder.I love this book.The whimsical & strikingly colorful illustrations are a high to see. Daily amusing inspirations, useful suggestions & exercises such as "Toasts of the Day, Aha-phrodisiacs, Daily Soul Vitamins, & my favorite--Dose of Mirth," puts more fun & play into creativity than anything I have seen (although Jill's previous Muse book was great fun too). As an expert in enjoyment of,& engagement & meaning in life,I heartily recommend this daily companion to not only excite your creative gene but to uplift the spirit & upgrade your quality of life.

My Awe-manacs jumped out of the Amazon box this morning and danced around the room!

A few jumped pretty high.

Anyone who's familiar with Jill Badonsky's witty, exciting work will see that she's outdone herself with this one!

Its pages offer varieties of delightful and practical inspiration to live consciously and creatively, and open to "what if." Its gifts and surprises will stay fresh year after year and, to quote from an early page: "All the months and days are in order, for your convenience."

This is one amazing and wonderful and truly AWE-some treat.

I just got this book in the mail yesterday and I already love it after just the first 25 pages (I know I could have skipped Jan 1-4 but I had to see what I was missing). The concept is fun! It offers little gems each day to get your creative juices flowing and your spirit soaring. I can't wait to read through the whole thing (I'm trying really hard not to peek ahead). If it continues to be this inspiring and fun I'll be ordering another copy for my sister-in-law for her birthday later this year or Christmas '09. Everyone should have a little "play" time and creativity in their life!

I bought this book as a Christmas present to myself! I saw it in the bookstore and didn't buy it and spent the next couple of days thinking about it, so I ordered a copy. I am very glad I did because I love it!!
When I have a coffee break or want to take a few minutes for myself I do the daily page and it makes me think and appreciate things such as: National Oatmeal day, Answer your Cat's question Day. Journal Juju has you free associating and doodling and doing fun stuff. Some days the Awe-Manic asks you to name your day, or asks you what did you get to do today, it changes the way you think about your day to day life.

This Awe-Manac, lists birthdays, and quotes and just gives the ordinary day a little lift of creativity and inspiration. Everyday becomes more adventurous and fun-filled with Jill's book. It's got a lot of eye opening questions to get your brain working and the journaling subjects are really a lot of fun. The book is filled with good, fun advice to make each day a little more pleasant.

If you feel like treating yourself to a wonderful book to help you be more creative, then look no further, you'll really enjoy this book-it's a fun, fresh and original book with lots to offer to change the mundane daily routine that we can all get caught up in. I highly recommend this creative treat. You'll use it year after year for a little uplifting creativity.

I have previewed this forthcoming book and it is awesome. The illustrations are whimisical and uplifting and inpires one's creativity. This book will make an excellent gift too. I have read Jill's first book and found it very thought provoking and inspiring also. Pair 'em together for a really, really great gift idea. Jill has a profound way of expressing herself. You will find her immensely funny, always good natured, and always provoking the reader to greater heights in attitude, creativity and well being. Don't leave Amazon without this book !

This is the best gift to myself for the new year. I'm surprised at how heavy it is but I've been used to The Nine Modern Day Muses paperback.(which I carry around with me all the time) I couldn't wait to jump right in and be awed. On Dec. 17th I read about flying and I found myself looking at the sky all day watching the birds play as the snow fell. Then I read about what I get to do instead of what I have to do. Just changing the way we think can have a dramatic and calming effect on our very soul. I love this book! Brava Jill!

A truly amazing book. The quotes are thought provoking and funny, and the activities really get my muse going. I almost wish there was more to do each day! This book makes me feel like a kid again. A must-have for the creative spirit, or those who want to tap into it.
