5.0 out of 5 stars Great starter book, 16 Feb 2012
This review is from: How to Scrapbook (Paperback)
When I decided to have a go at scrapbooking, I found this book along with one or two others in the library and liked this one so much I decided to get my own copy. It's great as a starter book and is basically three books combined together from two authors, giving a good overview of the basics for anyone starting to scrapbook. There are plenty of illustrations from each author's own scrapbooks to give you ideas that can act as a springboard for your own creative imagination. It's a book that I keep on coming back to when I want some inspiration.


Handa's Surprise
Handa's Surprise
by Eileen Browne
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.12

5.0 out of 5 stars A really special book, 16 Feb 2012
This review is from: Handa's Surprise (Paperback)
This is really a lovely story and fantastic illustrations. Plenty of educational applications with naming of fruits, animals, etc. But the real beauty of the book is the lovely story, the speech, the vibrant colours and wonderful illustrations. The DVD that goes with it is fantastic and captures the book so well. When I sent a copy to a friend who lives in West Africa she said "it was a very special book" for her two sons aged 2 and 4. They really loved it and she was hoping to use it their local school aswell. A really beautiful book to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great storage idea, 16 Feb 2012
Was looking for something to use as a drawer organiser and came across "Stackers". Ended up buying this and the deep open stacker. They are really well made and am very pleased with them. This 3-section stacker has plenty of room in it and is good for dividing up bracelets and necklaces. Am considering purchasing the lidded section aswell so that I have the choice to stack them as a more traditional jewellery box if I wish. Lovely quality and something that will last as well as being very practical. Highly recommended. The pink is not too pink and the lining is lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic idea, 16 Feb 2012
Hadn't come across "stackers" before. But loved the idea of being able to pick and choose which sections I have. Wasn't sure what the quality would be like but other reviews were positive. Have to say they are a really great quality, with a lovely finish and I like the fact that you can pick and choose the colours to stack them with as well as choosing the different trays you want. At the moment they are being used singularly in a drawer, but I have the option to stack them if I want. A win, win situation and a great way to solve a storage problem. This deep open stacker is a good size and means you can store larger items of jewellery and small earring boxes easily. A great innovative storage idea. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read on the issue of faith and suffering, 27 Sep 2010
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but I wasn't disappointed!! This is an inspiring, honest and frank account from two remarkable Christians facing terminal illness. Although both authors have MND, their experience will resonate with others not only facing terminal illness but also for those who have long-term chronic conditions. They address both the reality of their situations and the importance of their faith in the midst of their suffering. If you're looking for a book that really engages with the Bible and the question of sickness and suffering then you will not be disappointed. It is an important testimony and should be a must read for those who are engaged in ministry and by healthcare professionals. Highly recommended.
