4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little instrument!!!, 27 Dec 2013
Ive been playing guitar for years and recently decided to turn my hand to Uke playing as well.
I got this electric Uke for Christmas in the Cherry Sunburst colourway.

Main points:

The finish on it is very good for the price and looks really nice.
The neck, having looked along its length from top and bottom, is straight and true however dont go resting it on radiators or leave it in sunlight as the neck IS fixed so cant be brought back into line if it warps!
It does have volume and tone controls which are in slider form, not dials, and are set into the playing edge of the Uke. This leaves the top table of the Uke, where the sound hole would be on an acoustic, clear of dials and controls etc and adds to the overall look.
It arrived in a nice tough box with a lead, no strap or other accessories.

It should go without saying that this being an electric Ukelele means you NEED an amp to play it through. You might be able to hear it without if you stick your ears right up to the strings but if you want to hear what your playing acousticaly then I suggest you buy an actual acoustic Ukelele with a sound hole. This may seem an odd comment but I mention it as one reviewer was suprised they couldnt hear it without plugging it in. If your trying to fine tune it without an amp and your really stuck then heres a beginners tip: just place your chin against the top curve of the wood as you play and you'll hear it. Your jaw will amplify the sound to the ear drum. No joke, honest!

All in all im very happy with it. Build quality is good and the overall tone of the Uke is very good for the price and I would highly recommend this for beginners and more experienced players.

5.0 out of 5 stars small blank wooden stars 20mm, 22 Dec 2013
Great little star shaped wooden blanks.
Perfect for decoupage, pyrography and a host of kids crafts. They come without a drilled hole so you would need to drill your own if you wanted that.
The edges have a slight woodburned effect which gives them a great aged look.
The stars are of a good quality, no chipped or broken corners and not to thin. All in all they are quite sturdy little stars that are perfect for craft work!

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea BUT, 19 Nov 2013
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Loved this idea & purchased for myself.
The fret quality was questionable with sharp bits of metal I would need to file. It was the fret board itself that ruined the whole thing for me. Firstly it had warped and had quite a bend in it. So I prepared myself to soak the wood and the pin it for several days. That was until the damn thing snapped in half when held it, so obviously had a pre existing crack in it.
Unplayable so sent it straight back! You can buy one for less ready made or if you really want a kit you can find beyter ones that are only slightly more expensive. But this ones not worth it. The tuning pegs were also pretty shoddy quality. I could see those snapping in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible chimes!, 6 Aug 2013
These chimes have prongs inside that are struck by a glass disk when caught be the wind. Due to its structure it creates harmonics, tones that arent even part of the chimes and sounds incredible with pretty extra notes in the mix.
The outer is covered in a marbel paper. Beautifull but not weather resistant. I take mine out with me to enjoy in the garden, then take it back in again. You could probably varnish it but its not really meant to be left outside all year long.
These chimes can also be played as an instrument by twirling the tube housing by hand. Its works well in percussion or sound healing sessions!
Yes. Pricey! But worth it all the same!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifull Cards, 17 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am delighted with this set of cards. They are vivid and fascinating. Each one designed in a kaliedascope like formation making the most of the crystal images theselves!

This beautifull deck, and very lovely book enclosed, introduces us to the concept and technique for working with the Oversouls of the crystals we know and love. Ive cherished this chance to move into a deeper understanding of working with crystals and gemstones. Now we can work with them in many dimensions, not just the physical!

Now that ive started working with the cards I can say that they really do deliver. Ive had the cards for a week now and have meditated with several so far. They carry a very high vibrational energy when used with the actual crystals themselves as suggested. They can also be used as an oracle deck, or as an inspirational 'card of the day'!

The creator of this beautifull deck of oversoul cards is Mike Eastwood who runs AristiA in Southsea, Hampshire Uk. Its my favourite crystal/new age shop with the highest quality of products and wonderfull knowledgeable staff. Mike is a lovely man who always takes the time to talk to all his customers. Creating this deck has been a dedicated journey for him. It is a deck created with great heart and spirit!

Thank you for your journey and creation of these cards and sharing these wonderfull results with us all!

5.0 out of 5 stars utterly cute. totally functional!, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
love the Lotus design handle on this strainer. Perfect for those after Yoga herbal tea's! Ive used this quite a few times now and it hasnt let me down so far. I drink a lot of fruit teas, some with very small bits in and it does a good job of keeping these out of my brew.

Perfect strainer!

This is such a fun infuser! Made of silicone so super easy to clean. The holes vary in size so sometimes will let little tiny bits through but other wise excellent! The leaf dangles nicely over the side of your cup or mug, without slipping and falling in. Always nice!

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC SOURCE BOOK!, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is super source book of 500 nail art designs sorted into various catagories like glitter & rhinestones, romantic, animal print, geometric etc.

Whilst this is a SOURCE book of designs its is not a GUIDE book as to how to reproduce them! It seems some reviewers have had confusion over this. It does not profess to be a guide book and therefore does its job.

The photos are clear and vibrant and the range of designs is excellent. The book is of a good, sturdy construction being hardbacked and a woven binding. Essential as it is a book that will see a lot of use and be well thumbed over time.

All in all this is a terrific book for its price. Many proffessional books can be VERY expensive. Its a book I will be coming back to time and again to spark the imagination!

2.0 out of 5 stars Ward is far better than this!, 26 Dec 2010
This review is from: Obsession (Audio CD)
Shayne Ward is a very good singer and this album just doesnt do him justice at all. They are wasting a good act here.

The album itself is pretty much throw-away-pop and none of the tunes particularly stand out. It is pleasent enough to listen to but is no where near as good as this act can produce. Hopefully the next album will allow Ward to really show what his voice is really capable of! There is a lot of voice modulation used in this album which baffles me as Wards voice really doesnt need it, it just detracts from the over all sound.

I would say if you are a big Shayne Ward fan then buy the album, your going to want to have it in your collection. Otherwise, maybe wait for the next one. This is not the album it could have been! :(

5.0 out of 5 stars 13 Moon Diary. Awesome!, 7 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First and most important: If your looking for the traditional Mayan Calendar, this is NOT it. This is however a derivative known as the 13 Moon calender! It was devised so that our modern gregorian calendar and the Mayan calendar could be followed together, and that the 13 Moon could be lived by without losing touch with the day to day calendar most of the modern world plans its life by.

This is a fantastic diary chocca full of information on Mayan Birth signs and intricasies of the calendar itself. It has a formulae to help you work out where your birthday falls within the Mayan calendar. Very usefull! Its is also very beautifull.

Each week is set out over two pages. One side being the 13 Moon and the other being Gregorian. This means that each calendar version is opposite the other on the same page, in the same place making using the diary very easy indeed!

Although this is not traditional Maya calendar it is heavily based upon it in a way that allows us modern folks to follow it easily. I study the traditional Maya calendar but I also love the 13 Moon calendar. I know some poeple get very upset, complaining it is not the real thing but the authors are not pretending that it is. After all, they have titled it 13 Moon calender!

I would say buy it, enjoy it. Its a great introduction!

As im writing this it is now 2010 but this is still worth while buying for the wealth of information stored in it. A huge section is given up on a good explanation of the Maya calendar and I learnt a lot from it! The section on all the diffrent birth signs and what they mean is really interesting!!! ;D
