TBT Review: The Big Book Of Dan by Daniel C. Dulik

Published June 30, 2016 by Kattie Sivley

TBTI had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the blog hosting company, and all of my content was deleted.  I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what  I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections.  I will be posting these reviews under a new blog post called Throw Back Thursday Reviews, until I have posted them all on this blog. 🙂 See some that I have already posted here.

Fairmont Library Cheese Class

Published June 27, 2016 by Kattie Sivley

One of the cool things about going to the library other than all the free books (ob….viously) is that they do different classes and demonstrations.  My mom and I went to a cheese making class last week at the local library.  It was really fun and interesting.  We learned to make butter (just heavy cream in a jar and shake it really hard), ricotta, and mozzarella.  The butter and moz. were really good! I wasn’t a fan of the ricotta, but I don’t even like store-bought so it is not surprising.  LOL.

Making mozzarella was just like making ricotta but had an extra step of microwaving the curds then pushing and pulling them like taffy. Cheese is awesome.  Libraries are awesome.

Simply Caligraphy

Published June 24, 2016 by Kattie Sivley

Description from Amazon:

This little guide to hand lettering proves that calligraphy is as easy as picking up pen and paper. Focused on calligraphy’s most popular alphabet—italic—this delightful manual introduces basic capital and small letters and numbers, plus all the creative flourishes you need to customize your unique script for every project and occasion. With quick and easy instruction from calligraphy teacher and designer Judy Detrick, Simply Calligraphy will have you whipping up elegant invitations, pleasing place cards, and personalized thank-you notes in no time.

 

My Thoughts:

I am glad I received this book for free in exchange for a review, because I do not feel that it was really worth buying.  I have always been interested in calligraphy, because I have very poor handwriting. I have several pen pals, who get sloppily written letters, so when this book came available for review, I was very excited to get it.  The book does not lay flat when you are practicing your handwriting, which is unfortunate, so you have to find something to hold it open to the page that you are on.  The instructions are easy to follow, but there are not many photos of the writing.  It would have been better to include more visuals, since calligraphy is so beautiful.

Goodreads Summary:

A monumental tragedy has befallen the Clan of Ionor, an ancient brotherhood of elven warriors. Concerned when their Master does not reach his secretive business in a distant kingdom, the Elders learn that Tryn, their beloved leader, has been captured by a cutthroat gang of bandits known as the Steel Claw. Yet this is not the darkest of their tidings. The relic under the clan’s safekeeping, a weapon of terrible power that was forged by the gods themselves, is also missing. The Ionor dispatch Eonen, a headstrong Elder, and a young and talented apprentice, Tride, to rescue the Master and the relic by infiltrating the bandits’ stronghold-the formidable Fortress of Toppledom. As the two determined elves hasten into the unknown beyond their borders to restore balance and honor to their clan, they encounter the true darkness behind the matter-the very origin of the world’s evil. Allegiances will be twisted. The fates of many will be set into motion. And the destiny of one will be realized.
