Gift Guide: Doodle Your Way to Happiness

25 November 2015

Happy Thanksgiving Eve. Do you or someone you know/love have an inner artist just waiting to burst out and make a splash? Look no further then Christopher Hart's fun and teachable new book Doodletopia: Cartoons!

This paperback book (currently $15 on Barnes & Noble) is 160 pages chalk full of instructions, demonstrations and exercises for you to embrace your inner artist and become the cartoonist you always knew you could be. Or at least will bring much laughter and happiness as you explore your creative side.

Christopher's directions are well-written and easy to follow and the ten chapters that range from "warm-up" to "choose and design the animals" to "complete the cartoons" will suit anyone of any age who has an interest in doing more than doodling on a legal pad during that tedious office meeting (did I say that? LOL) and what better gift because you know everyone will be wanting to try their hand at a doodletopia at your next holiday party.

Price: $15 (Barnes & Noble)
Where to Buy: In stores or on-line at Amazon
Who is this for: Anyone who loves to doodle
Disclaimer: I received this book for review purposes from Random House but all opinions are my own.

The Addams Family Continues to Entertain

19 November 2015

The Addams Family continues to entertain at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center (running through 6 December 2015).  The witty and corny musical by Andrew Lippa wins a hearty applause mainly because of the nostalgia that starts from the moment the orchestra plays The Addams Family Theme.

WayGood Tea: Detoxifying?

04 November 2015

Good afternoon! It's been almost a year since I first got sick last year. Man, time flies, and thankfully things are looking up. But this year has definitely taught me to be more careful and conscientious about what I put into my body, etc. I love tea and the doctors keep saying I need to go off caffeinated teas. And anything that is supposed to help with increased energy, better focus or improved mood will definitely catch my eye so I was thrilled to try a sample of WayGood Tea's Lemon Jasmine Cleanse tea that is promoted as helpful for rejuvenation.
