5.0 out of 5 stars Craft with a twist, 16 Feb. 2015
"Cut Out + Keep - Around the USA in 50 Craft Projects" by Cat Morley & Tom Waddington of the fantastic Cut Out + Keep website is a new and interesting take on a craft book. The book is part travel guide and a fun look at the inspiration behind each of the projects it contains.
I have been using Cat's crafting community website www.cutoutandkeep.net for several years and was so excited to get a chance to review the book. I was not disappointed! The book has an energy and excitement for the journey and projects that leaps from the pages encouraging you to get your craft supplies out and give them a go.
Each project is proceeded by a guide to the state that inspired it, containing photos and tips on places to visit. The projects themselves are wide ranging as the country that inspired them; from sewing a guitar shaped bag (Tennessee), making the scrumptious looking pie shakes (Iowa), a Plant-me Greetings Card (New Jersey) to the super cute Voodoo Doll Pin cushion (Louisiana).
The range of crafts contained within it makes this the perfect book for both adults and teenagers, experienced crafters and novices. There is something within the pages for everyone no matter your ability.
One of the things that I really enjoyed about the book is that it gives you the freedom and confidence to follow the instructions implicitly or adapt the projects to your own needs. The Hollywood lampshade would be equally as fantastic if you were to make one for London, Paris or Edinburgh.
There are projects that will keep you busy for a while and others that you can do in an afternoon. Of the quick and easy ones the Tumbleweed Chandeliers (Colorado) is the one I am going to do next straightforward and simple but with stunning results, all you need is balloons, pva glue, string and fairy lights.

A good mix of solitaire games and easy to unlock more as you earn coins. Good graphics. Some of the games however appear to be impossible to win!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Tea Lovers, 22 July 2011
This is a lovely product and the ideal gift for those hard to buy for people. The tin of tea balls is inside the box with the one person glass teapot, it is well packaged and good quality. They also look stunning as they unfurl into flowers.

4.0 out of 5 stars I have a happy teen, 22 July 2011
My teenager that destroys headphones regularly, received these to replace a pair of Skullcandy's a couple of days ago. She is very happy with the build quality and the comfort of the headphones and also thinks the sound quality is better than the Skullcandy's they are replacing. Fingers crossed they last a reasonable time. One point though the picture and a previous review indicate that these come with a pair of ear-buds as well, however there were not any with the one's we received from Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought Provoking Debut, 1 July 2010
This review is from: Ties That Bind (Paperback)
Is a well written and thought provoking book, that looks at the dynamics within relationships and families. The book is written from two female characters points of view in alternating chapters which allows the reader to experience womens roles in two, on the surface, apparently disparate ways.
An interesting debut that will appeal to those who like Joanna Trollope and Maggie O'Farrell.
