5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiringly crafty, 7 Mar 2012
This review is from: Homespun Style (Hardcover)
I have just bought this book and must say it's like looking through a candy shop window. The explosion of beautiful images on each page had my heart racing and I had to skim through the book first before taking the time as you normally would with a new book. It shows that you don't have to have huge amounts of money to create interesting areas of your home and to not have to worry about cost. As more and more people focus on recycling and creating their own personal style it shows that it can be cheaper unique and a lot of fun to create your own home furnishings. Using recycled/vintage fabrics and creative techniques such as quilting/crochet which have long been forgotton help to create ones' own individual style. People in this book have shown this can be done and it certainly does'nt fail to disappoint. The book is split into various sections containing elements, details & spaces very well laid out and definately a book that I think will be spoke about for a long time to come. It is a joy to look at for inspiration and generally to have on the coffee table in your living room. Well done Selina I think you should be very proud of this beautifully inspiring book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pom pom maker, 19 Dec 2011
The pom pom maker is great to use fast if you want to do a quick project. I made a christmas wreath with mine it was great fun and really addictive. It is easy to use and comes in 2 sizes in the pck so real good value for money. I would recommend this item definately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mod Podge, 19 Dec 2011
I heard about Mod podge from a crafter in the US. I ordered it to use in my laundry cupboard to glue & seal some wallpaper. I must say it has been great stuff to use and the results are excellent. I have also used it inside a wardrobe the same kind of project and again very good results. There is no harsh odour and it is non toxic so great for all to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative reading, 12 Nov 2011
I have looked at this book for a while and wandered why I had'nt purchased before when I started reading it. I could'nt put it down it really is very inspiring and informative. It helps to alleviate some of the fears/concerns about setting up or thinking of starting a craft business. A lot of the fears that other people had I could really relate to so helps that you know your not on your own. It tells you of other peoples experiences when they started and addresses for their blogs etc. I would recommend this book for reference material as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 22 April 2010
I did look at this book briefly before watching the series & loved the look of it, it was one of those books that I was eager to delve into more, and as soon as I started watching the series knew I had to have it on my shelves. I like the ingredients that she uses & being more of a vegetable than meat person myself gave me some new ideas that were quick & healthy. The illustrations are beautifully done & I think it will be a book that I will use a lot. So far the recipes I have cooked have been successful & very yummy & easy !

I would recommend this book highly to all for the inspiration she gives you along with the nice graphics, definately a book to curl up with.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Keep your silver shined" Devon Sproule, 8 April 2008
This review is from: Keep Your Silver Shined (Audio CD)
I first saw Devon Sproule on the "Late night with Jools" show. I was immediately taken by her individual style with the twangy guitar and great lyrics performing the two songs that evening. I ordered this Cd the next day and took it on holiday to the Isle of mull in Scotland. It was so relaxing & inspiringly happy music to listen to whilst driving around & viewing wildlife at the same time, who could ask for more. Since then I have played it almost every day whilst cooking reading and socialising and have just pre-ordered her recent Cd "Upstate songs" I'm sure I will enjoy. I love you devon Sproule XXX give her a try you won't be dissapointed!
