  • Sue Kreft "born to quilt" - An unexpected lifeI found this book to be very compelling. I enjoyed it so much that I stayed up way too late to finish it. The cover picture alone absolutely pulled me in and forced me to buy this book. I enjoyed Jeannie's story, and how much her life changed from how she thought things would go. Her life is quite different from mine, but I understood the strong desire to have children, and also raised two boys myself (now grown).

    The story of lavender is a very sentimental thing for me, as my mother loved the scent of lavender very much because it reminded of her grandmother, who wore it. I didn't used to like it, but it has grown on me with the stories of my long gone grandmother and great-grandmothers. Now that my mother is gone, it reminds me of her, too.

    I was surprised at the outcome at the end but was pleased to see how Jeannie was able to make such a big and unexpected change and be very happy with it.

    I'm sure I'll be visiting some local lavender farms soon. Thanks to Jeannie for sharing her life.
  • J. Nusz "Author, reviewer & graphic designer" - A great digital art program....Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 2011 is a wonderful digital art program! The program is very intuitive, enabling artists to create exactly what they're after in a relatively short amount of time. For optimal performance, I highly suggest using the program with a graphic tablet and pen. Using a tablet with the program allows an artist to create really impressive illustrations, drawings, digital paintings and more, quickly and easily.

    The program is easy to use, and the learning curve is not steep. It doesn't take forever to learn where things are and how to produce different effects, and the artist can get right down to creating, instead of trying to learn the program. Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 2011 is also fast to respond, without painful lags or delays that tend to zap the creative juices and cause frustration.

    I highly recommend this fun little program to anyone who loves to sketch, draw, paint or design graphics and illustrations digitally.
  • patricia a marziotto - Stand Your GroundYou can't go wrong with the Mizuno Women's Wave Rider 16 running shoes. It's the best deal in town. Don't be fooled by the look. They are kick ass shoes. Once you put them on you can accomplish anything. You can stand for 13 hrs plus in them. No backaches, no leg pain, no cramping your style. The value in these shoes is insurmountable. Republicans are cringing over these running shoes. They ran them over like a mack truck. Completely crushed them, flattened them to the bone. They were all running around looking like a bunch of Flat Stanley's. Folks.....these running shoes are worth the investment. They speak value!!! Values most of us understand. Keep your asses out of our Dr's offices, our wombs, our business. And we won't have to run you over again and flatten you. Mizuno running shoes. I worship the ground you stand on.
  • Deb C - Best tool everBought this book to help us on our cross-country maiden voyage trip with our new 19' trailer. We were concerned the trip would get boring...not with this book! We loved every minute of our trip because we were always looking forward to the next exit - true! And this book is right on the money too. We did not find any errors. The red lettering lets you know if the upcoming gas station, restaurant, etc. has room enough for your RV. We absolutely love this book and will buy each new edition. I hope it will become available on Kindle soon AND it would be great to have the Next Exit for intra-state highways too.
