Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative
Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative

5.0 out of 5 stars YES YES YES! This is exactly what I needed!, April 11, 2015
This Book is a gem for anyone who is trying to live a more creative life. I'm an full time artist (yes it has taken me YEARS to use that title with any amount of confidence) but it has taken me over 40 years to get the guts to do it for a living. This book was reassuring, motivating, funny and most of all gave me some much needed motivation and advice. I wish I had read it 10 years ago, maybe I would have done something sooner. We are our own worst enemies and critics when it comes to our own work and this book and it's author will make you believe you can do it. I will read it whenever I need a little pep talk and a kick in the rear. Easy to read, fun and funny but most of all full of all the positive energy you need to move forward. Great gift for all those artists in your life!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Bed is A Life Saver and The Customer Service is Superb!, January 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am compelled to write this review not only for the product but for the customer service and integrity of this company. My Mother has been caring for my ailing father for many years now and just recently has had to bring in night time help so she can get some rest. Unfortunately we don't have a guest bed in the room she needs to sleep in so my mother was sleeping on the floor. As soon as I found this out I started looking for a solution that would fit our needs. I saw the reviews and the height and thought this was a good choice. I purchased it and it was delivered in two days, which was a lifesaver for my mother! Unfortunately the bed that was delivered was defective and another night of sleep eluded her. I live out of state so when I checked in with her the next day she was very "deflated". She called the company that afternoon and talked to Mark, who assured her that he would get her a replacement bed within 24 hours. Sure enough it was there the next afternoon. The bed is perfect! It is nice and high which is good, since my Mom is in her 70s and getting up from the floor isn't the easiest thing. She's very pleased and even more pleased with how true to their word this company is, how easy they made it on her when there was a problem and how responsive they were to her concerns. I can tell you as a child who lives far away from my parents, just knowing that someone actually followed through with what they promised was a relief. When so many things in your life are difficult having just one person make something easier on you makes more of a difference than you will ever know.

Thanks so much SoundAsleep for a solid product and for treating my Mom so well!

3.0 out of 5 stars Silly, but Amy Adams and Ireland are fun to watch!, April 7, 2014

This review is from: Leap Year (Amazon Instant Video)
OK it's exactly what you think it will be. No more, no less. Ireland is gorgeous though and around Leap Year or St. Patricks Day this movie can be fun to watch. It is really really predictable and nothing special.

I love the hard rocking vibe on this CD, but it's not a one note disc.... lots of classic EC! It's no Chief ... but It's still a great CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars I bought this book for me...and I'm 45!, April 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Maps (Hardcover)
Yes I know this is a kids geography book, believe me everyone reminds me of that. I don't care. I love hand drawn artwork, I love maps, and I am a Geography dunce! I bought this beautiful book for my coffee table and I love to browse through it when I have a few minutes. You can learn so much from the little pictures and I am a very visual person, so this type of map makes so much more sense to my brain. When I watch the news or a House Hunters International (for example) I take out the book to give myself some added understanding of exactly where something is located. OK so these maps are simplistic and not all the maps of every country are in here, but for a child (or an adult that thinks like a child) this book is beautiful, so well executed that it's worth space on your shelf..or on your coffee table!

3.0 out of 5 stars Jury is still out, April 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been taking this everyday since January when I became plagued by the dreaded hot flash. Since starting my hot flashed don't last as long and I don't have as many at night, I've probably cut down about 40%... but some days are terrible still and others are pretty good. At this point the 40% is a blessing, and I'm not sure icool is responsible, but I'll keep taking them because I'll take the improvement!!! At some point maybe I'll get brave and stop taking them to see if the occurrence and duration spike back up. I dream about a product that will give me a flash free night, but until that happens I'll continue with icool hoping that it is responsible for the improvement (and secretly wondering if I'm just wasting my money on a placebo)

This review is from: Terrarium Shaped Notecards (Cards)
C'mon have you ever seen a note card so sweet? I love the cut out style, the clever artwork - inside, outside and the envelope. The only problem is that I love them so much it's hard for me to send them off. I think I'll be buying another set soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it when I was a Kid and my kids love it too!, April 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stand By Me (Amazon Instant Video)
My teenage son is a fan of Big Bang Theory.... so of course he asked about what all the fuss was about with him being a child star. We decided to let him see Will in the movie that started the legend. :-) We sat down with my 12 and 16 year old this past weekend and once again this film delivered. My husband and I enjoyed seeing this classic once again and seeing familiar actors when they were fresh and young (like we once were too). My kids loved the story line, how crazy it was that kids their age were left to their own devices with freedom to get into lots of trouble. Can you imagine not know where your kids were for two+ days? And boy did $2 go far! It is a R rated film however, it is very pedestrian compared to movies kids see now at PG13. The language isn't the greatest, lots of Fbombs and other choice words, but it really is in character with the storyline and truthfully I'd be fooling myself if I didn't think my kids heard the same at school or in the neighborhood everyday. Great movie that still has legs, both my boys enjoyed it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Got rid of my Otterbox for this and I'm glad I did!, May 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got an Otterbox for Christmas and it was falling apart by March. Very disappointing. I decided to forget the brand names and choose something that looked sturdy with a little style. After looking at hundreds of cases on line this case looked like it had some personality and was durable. Whenever I order something like this online, sight unseen, I am never sure if I'm making a good decision. When it came in my first reaction was that the packaging was pretty chintzy and cheap. Not a good start. I was pretty pleased when I put it on my phone and it snapped together easily, was a really nice size and had just the right amount of rubber to make it non slip and give it some protection. I've had it on my phone now for almost three weeks and I LOVE IT!!!! It feels sturdy in my hand, has a nice tight fit, works with all the Iphone 4s buttons and looks pretty stylish (if I do say so myself). For the price point I would recommend this case. It doesn't have a plastic screen shield or a massive bumper but it provides good protection and so far is working out!

2.0 out of 5 stars After Reading Garden Spells... I expected so much more., April 11, 2013
I loved Garden Spells. It was whimsical with a touch of magic. An easy summer read. Having said that I expected a similar experience when I picked up the Sugar Queen. Sadly this book fell very flat. It's an average read with average characters and magical elements that are not very magical. (with the exception of the traveling books.... that was a sweet touch). If I had picked this up at church book sale for 50 cents I probably wouldn't have finished it because it was nothing special, but because it was a gift I read it cover to cover and quickly put it in the pile to donate to the church book sale.
