Watercolor 2018 Day-to-Day Calendar Review & GIVEAWAY

This is the Watercolor 2018 Day-to-Day Calendar by award-winning artist Dennis Pendleton. It's a boxed activity and craft calendar featuring watercolor. Included is everything you need to start painting right away - just add a cup of clean water for mixing your paint and cleaning your brush. You get a paint brush, paint and 150+ painting lessons. Each calendar sheet has a fun fact, completed painting to inspire, painting tip and pencil sketch for you to paint. There are 5 basic paint colors - blue, red, yellow, green and black. You may also experiment with mixing colors. I began by swatching my watercolors in order to get familiar with them and see how they react to paper, water and with the other colors in the pallet. I got the idea from the included and very useful Painting Tips sheet. As you progress you may wish to add a larger brush, more colors, masking tape and extra watercolor paper. As I move from painting to painting I keep this in mind (it's from the author) - "First and foremost...relax and have a good time while painting. Enjoy learning something from each day's exercise and don't sweat it if the final results don't meet your expectations - you have the entire year to practice!" Get your copy below! All Andrews McMeel Publishing 2018 calendars are currently on sale!

Kirigami Fold & Cut-A-Day 2018 Calendar Review & GIVEAWAY

If you've ever been curious about paper cutting then this terrific calendar is for you! I'm really enjoying it. The Kirigami Fold & Cut-a-Day 2018 Calendar by Jeff Cole was released on June 2017 from Andrews McMeel Publishing. It's a boxed calendar featuring kirigami, the Japanese art of folding and cutting paper. Just add a good pair of paper scissors to start. There are kirigami instructions and paper for hundreds of models - one for every day of the week. Saturday and Sunday are combined onto a single page.  Each kirigami design uses 1 of 6 base folds. For easy reference the base folds and other essentials are on 4 tabbed index-like cards called "fold keys". When folded correctly the cut pattern appears. Cut along marked lines then open to reveal a striking motif. I love the symmetry. Designs include a level of difficulty A through D. The kirigami designs advance in difficulty throughout the year. Some projects recommend the use of one or more of the following: a craft knife, ruler, decorative edge scissors, hole punches, tape, glue and tweezers. The paper comes in a variety of  6" x 6" bright solid colors. It has a glossy magazine-like quality. It doesn't tear. To use, lay the box flat on your desk or convert to an easel-style desk calendar by following the instructions. Like it says on the box - "You'll be amazed by the spectacular designs you create!Get your copy below!  All Andrews McMeel Publishing 2018 calendars are currently on sale!

CARINA ORGANICS Review

This is my CARINA ORGANICS experience. I just completed a week of using CARINA ORGANICS Sweet Pea Daily Moisturizing Shampoo along with Sweet Pea Deep Treatment Conditioner. Established in 1972 CARINA ORGANICS is a certified organic and sustainably sourced Canadian hair and skin care products company located in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Shipping Canada wide is $7.99 flat rate and shipping is free on all orders $99+ Canada & the USA. After I placed my order I received an email letting me know that my organic products were being handcrafted. As soon as they were formulated, bottled and ready for shipment I received my tracking number. My toxin free shampoo and conditioner arrived safely. I couldn't wait to use it.


Sweet Pea Daily Moisturizing Shampoo - Carina Organics
Sweet Pea Deep Treatment Conditioner - Carina Organics


To wet hair I added Sweet Pea Daily Moisturizing Shampoo. The first thing I noticed was the light natural scent. It was not overpowering. I lathered up. I wash my hair the way the salon does with the focus on gently scrubbing the scalp with the finger tips. After rinsing thoroughly I then applied the Sweet Pea Deep Treatment Conditioner with attention to the ends. After about 2 minutes I ran a wide tooth comb through my hair with ease, starting at the ends. And then I gave it a final rinse before patting lightly with a towel to remove the excess water. After allowing my hair to dry I styled as usual.




The results are my hair is incredibly soft and shiny and I was not exposed to all of the toxic chemicals found in synthetic hair products. I care that what goes down the bathroom drain isn't toxic to the environment, the ingredients are sustainably sourced, the plastic bottles are recyclable and it's made in Canada. In conclusion I prefer Carina Organics hair products because they get their cleaning power and lovely scents from ingredients found in nature plus they leave my hair feeling clean and healthy. For more information and to get your organic hair and skin care products please visit Carina Organics. I recommend.

I admire the artistry of beautiful penmanship, lettering and calligraphy. I do not like my own handwriting - it's inconsistent, sloppy, even hard to read. I would love to refine it. Whether I'm jotting down a to-do list, writing a greeting card or filling out a form I would like my handwriting to be expressive, unique and readable. I came across a new book aimed at doing exactly that and more Written by Hand: Techniques and Tips to Make Your Everyday Handwriting More Beautiful by Erica Tighe.

The smooth pages are specially lined to help you practice form, size, height, spacing etc. until they become second nature. The soft, light colored pages are easy on the eyes.

Try out various font styles. Mix it up with some hand lettering. Continue with prompts for further practice. I'm finding it rather interesting.
