Product Review: 8"x8" Canvas Panels (12 Pack) by US Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.



This 12 pack of 8"x8" Canvas Panels by US Art Supply come wrapped together, they are also individually wrapped. The canvases are made of 100% pure cotton, contain an acid-free heavy board, have an 8-ounce finished weight with turned edges, and are triple acrylic gesso primed for acrylic or oil painting. The back of the canvases contain the product description and other product information, which I believe will make them easy to reorder.

The back of the canvases contain product information, making them easy to reorder.

I used some of these canvases with acrylic and watercolor paint (I don't think they are made for watercolor paint but I wanted to try it out on one of the canvases anyway). Amazingly, they did great not only with the acrylic paint, put also with the watercolor paint, which I wasn't expecting. The water in the watercolor paint did not drip all over the painting but made its way through the patterns of paint from the picture. I did need to use more than one coat of paint with both types of paint with most and maybe all of the paintings but that is pretty much a given for me with anything I paint. The acrylic painting turned out more rich in color, which I understand because that is one type of paint these canvases were made for.

I like that these canvases can be propped up on a book shelf, table, or stand as long as there is something that they can lean against.

These canvases would probably work well for professional and student painters of all ages.

Product Review: Silver Heart Classic Ear Studs with Cubic Zirconia by Glitzs

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
This set of Silver Heart Classic Ear Studs with Cubic Zirconia is made of 925 Sterling Silver. The finishing is silver plated + E-coat. They are 4x4 mm and contain a handmade prong setting. The earrings I received came in a nice little bag that they can be stored in when they are not being worn.

This is a very pretty set of pink silver heart earrings. The hearts are very small and can be seen when you get up really close to look at them. They are so nice that I haven't worn them anywhere but home yet because I don't want to accidentally lose one or more of the earrings. They stay securely in place so far, it's just a fear I have of losing one because I like them so much. I do not purchase earrings for myself that much and when I do I like to wear some of them a long time, which is what I probably will do with this set of earrings.

These earrings would be great for ladies of all ages!

Product Review: Black Pismo Aluminum Field Easel by US Art Supply


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
This Black Pismo Aluminum Field Easel by US Art Supply is made of high quality aluminum metal, is lightweight, folds into a smaller size when not in use, and contains a spring loaded top clamp to help secure canvases. It will accommodate canvases up to 32" high. The adjustable legs allow the easel to be used as a floor or tabletop easel and can be used indoors and outdoors. When the tray is taken off of the easel, both pieces (the easel and the tray) can be folded up and placed into the nice carry case that is included. There is really no assembly required, other than attaching the tray to the easel.


 


This is the most interesting easel I have come across so far. It enabled me to sit down on the floor and paint, which I don't remember ever doing. The top part of the easel will move down into a smaller size if it is adjusted, which is easy to do. What I found interesting is that not only will the tray fit on the legs but it can also be secured into place at the top of the easel too by putting the tray into the top rod into the easel and then securing it (at first I thought that was how the easel was supposed to be put together). I like it better as a floor easel when the tray is fastened to the top part of the easel like that. I like it better as a tabletop / miniature easel when the tray is put on the bottom part of the easel (on the legs). I also like that it folds up into a smaller size when I am not using it.

I think a lot of people will find this easel useful for painting, drawing, and displaying artwork on canvases and diagrams, charts, and other information on easel paper.

Product Review: RFID Blocking Men's Wallet by RF Shield

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
  

This RFID Blocking Wallet is for blocking credit card or other data accessible from RFID skimming of a RFID chip. It comes with three slots for credit cards (or other types of cards), a slot to insert a driver's license or other card that can be looked at through the see through material, and two compartments for items such as money bills, coupons, or other foldable material.
This is a nice wallet with a RF Shield logo on it (that can't really be seen all that much unless you look closely at it) that is made for men. There is an opening in the middle at the bottom of the two compartments on the wallet; I am not sure if that is the norm for men's wallets or not but it is big enough for small coins or other small items to fall out of the wallet if they are put there.

This wallet is a bigger than most men's wallets I've seen but it looks big enough for most men's pants though. I'm planning on giving it to one of the men members in my family and I think he will appreciate that it will keep his RFID chip data secure.

***Update on 2-3-2016***My family member used this and it was too big for him to sit on during his work day.

Product Review: Drawing Manikin by US Art Supply


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
This Drawing Manikin by US Art Supply is on a stand and is made of seasoned hardwood. The joints are moveable so people can learn how to draw many different human positions (standing, sitting, reaching hands up in the air, kicking, etc.). What is great is that people could put the manikin in front of decorative scenes and draw a person from this manikin in that kind of a scene. It also can be used as a decorative art piece.



This manikin is pretty flexible. It possibly can be looked at as the skeleton of some human drawings; once the skeleton is drawn then skin, clothes, shoes, and other accessories can be drawn. Some of the positions wouldn't move that well on the manikin...the chest wouldn't stay forward, the knees were hard to flex, and the legs would move but they didn't move and flex really well at the knees.  The arms do move all the way around and can be raised, the legs and feet can be raised to about the hip area, and it can be moved around from a standing to a sitting (in the air) position.

I did draw a picture of a person from this manikin; it is definitely a beginner's type of drawing and I am hoping to become a better drawer of people from having this manikin to look at.

I believe this will be a fun product to help people learn how to draw people better.

Product Review: 64" Black Wooden Tripod Easel by US Art Supply


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.



This 64" Black Wooden Tripod Easel by US Art Supply was pretty easy for me to assemble without instructions because I recently put together a smaller desktop easel that was put together kind of the same way (it also helped to look at a picture of the easel to see how it was assembled). This easel has more pieces to it since there are bottom legs as well as parts that screw onto those legs. There were some pads on three of the parts, which made me understand that those were the bottom legs. A family member helped me with how to connect the chain since it attached to this easel differently than the chain attached to the tabletop easel.

I used this to put a concert poster on and so far it has held up the poster without falling; it seems like it is just the right size to display the poster. I like that this easel is lightweight and will fold up so I can put it against a wall or in the closest when it's not being used, also.

This easel would also be nice for painting projects and to hold framed pictures.

Product Review: Premium Woven Desk Organizer by BLU

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

This Premium Woven Desk Organizer is made from PVC leather woven texture. It is  6.5 x 5.75 x 4.5 inches. It has a part on the bottom that allows it to circle (swivel) around, which will help people to get what they need from the farthest side of the organizer more easily.

This Desk Organizer has helped me to reduce clutter on one of my shelves. I had some pencils and pens on the edge of the shelf and they would fall off often. Now I keep them in this organizer and they stay in one place. I also put a remote control, a small notepad, my computer mouse, and a few highlighters in it. I like the way that it looks on my shelf; the black leather goes with just about anything in any room I decide to put it in.

I didn't notice that it circled around until one day when I was moving around some items on my shelf; I'm glad that I noticed that because it is interesting that this organizer has that feature included with it.

If you are tired of clutter from office supplies, remotes, and other items then this Premium Woven Desk Organizer might be the perfect solution for you!

Product Review: Briskbars by Briskbars



Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


Briskbars contain guarana and maca. They also contain a small amount of sugar (4 grams) and sodium (40 grams), are Gluten Free, GMO Free, Soy Free, Peanut Free, Dairy Free, Vegan, and Kosher. They are not your average size energy bar, although they are strong even though they are small. The ingredients are advertised on the package as being stronger than one espresso.

The taste of this Briskbar energy bar is like no other I have tasted before...I could taste the strong maca flavor and couldn't taste very much sugar. I could tell that there was some sugar in it. After reading the ingredients I learned that it is made with organic unsweetened chocolate. It took some getting used to the taste but after eating one Briskbar the taste seemed to grow on me.

One day I went to work on no sleep (not on purpose, I just couldn't sleep that night) and this energy bar really helped me to get through the day better. I know having this energy bar is not a replacement for sleep, although since I got no sleep (and I couldn't help it) I'm glad I had a Briskbar available to help me with my energy that day. I ate two other bars on two other days I also worked and had a lot of sleep the night before. I don't remember reaching a dragging point during any point of my work days on those days, so I think they helped in that regard also. I do remember feeling kind of some nervous energy pretty soon after I ate this energy bar on one of the days I had a lot of sleep the night before, which I think happens with a lot of products with caffeine in them (I don't drink or eat a lot of caffeine so I wasn't used to that like other people might be),

Also, I ate a small amount of candy with the Briskbars because I knew I needed something more before I went into work. If I didn't need to wait three or three and half hours to eat again then I probably would've been okay with eating just the Briskbar, without eating the additional candy. One thing I noticed is that I wasn't very thirsty after eating these Briskbars, one day I didn't drink any water during my time at work until about half of my work day was finished. I am not saying these Briskbars caused me not to be thirsty, it is just something I noticed on days I ate them.

I'm very happy with the results of the Briskbar. It is good to know that these are available if I need to have something on hand to help me with my energy before the start of a work day. I think they will help people to gain a little more kick to their day if they can't help losing sleep, or need something with natural ingredients to help get them get their day going.

Product Review: Slim Packing Cube by C+F


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


This Slim Packing Cube by C+F is made of premium grade honeycomb Ripstop waterproof nylon construction. The soft mesh panel will help users of the product to remember what was stored in it while at the same time help to keep items away from view from far away. It would be great to put in a suitcase or dresser drawer. It will organize a lot of small clothing items or will also fit some bigger items like pants and shirts. It can also be used to store toiletry items in if desired.

I used this Slim Packing Cube to store about twelve pairs of rolled up socks in. It helped me to not have to dig through my dresser drawer to find the socks, since they were conveniently located in this one packing cube. It would work good in a suitcase to help separate the socks from the rest of my clothes also. I think it would do a good job of holding five or six lightweight shirts and possibly a pair of pants (without the socks).

I think a lot of men will enjoy the look of this case; the gray fabric seems like it is a color that men use a lot. It would also probably be a good luggage accessory item for spouses to share; it is a color that both might like.

Product Review: Handmade Unlined Hardcover Notebook with Fabric by SamutNote

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This hardcover notebook is 5"x8" and contains 200 pages of unlined, soft, high quality, Green Read, light cream colored paper. It can be used to write, sketch, and draw in as a notebook, diary, or sketchbook. It can also be used as a small scrapbook to glue or tape small items into. The fabric cover makes it stylish.

I received this notebook in the black cream checked fabric cover, which I like. I used it to write down important study notes about information that came to me as a light bulb went on in my head. The first page was hard to write on because of the way first pages usually are in books. That page can be used as a title page (although there is a thicker page before it) if anybody desires to use it that way to prevent the awkward way the first page bends. I had not written on unlined paper in awhile so it was interesting to do that again in this notebook. In my opinion, lined paper is easier to write on but unlined paper is more presentable.

I think many people will think of this notebook as becoming a diary; that is what I thought of when I first saw it. It also would be great to have handy to draw in. It is small enough to tuck away in most purses and bags.

Product Review: Slouchy Beanie by Blink

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.




This slouchy beanie is different than any hat I've worn on my head. If I just put it on the tip of my head, without pulling the rest of it down, it reminds me of a hat that I might see Dr. Seuss wearing...it sticks up kind of like a top hat, even though it sags a little bit. When I pull the hat down to try to cover my whole head, it reminds me more like a head covering that will cover all the hair on the head. I like the way that it looks when I cover my whole head and also let some of my hair flow out of it.
 
This beanie definitely did keep my head warm when I wore it outside on a couple of chilly days. Usually if my head is warm the rest of my body seems to stay warmer then if I didn't have a beanie, hat, or hood on. The style of it is growing on me also.

This black beanie I received looks like it was hand made with much care.  It also comes in some other colors besides black.

Product Review: Two Piece Packing Cube Set by C+F

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


This set of 2 Packing Cubes by C+F measure 13"x10"x4".They are made of premium ripstop, waterproof nylon construction. They will fit up to 10 shirts per packing cube. They conveniently zip up smoothly to make them easy to store in a suitcase, drawer, or on their own.

I decided to use these packing cubes to store some handmade blankets in. They were being stored together in a big plastic bag in my closet, which looked kind of awkward and I wasn't ever able to store anything on top of them that I remember. Now one blanket is stored in each packing cube and they sit on top of each other in my closet. They lay flat on the top rack of my closet, which will allow me to stack other things on top of them if I need to.

I believe there are so many different uses for these packing cubes: they can be used to put clothes in for travel and home use, can be used store items to put under a bed, to store dishes in (as long as there is something that will protect them), etc.

Product Review: 100% Pure Peppermint Oil by The Essentials Co.


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

This 100% Pure Peppermint Oil by The Essentials Co. contains pure steam-distilled mentha piperita. It can be used for relief in many areas such as: stress, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, fever, and migraines. It an also be used for household uses such as: an air freshener, a natural disinfectant, and as an insect and rodent repellent. It can only be used externally. This oil should always be diluted with another carrier oil, unless it is being used for aromatherapy.

This Peppermint Oil has a strong peppermint smell to me. It has smelled strong pretty much most of the way through the cycle on my aromatherapy machine, up until it is about 1/4 full of water. Sometimes my throat tasted kind of like Peppermint when my aromatherapy machine had been on awhile, although I think that happened because I had put more drops of the oil in it then usual on accident. Peppermint is a pleasant smell to me so it doesn't bother me that the smell has been mostly strong; I do believe we can get too much peppermint smell in our lungs though too.

I think it has helped my respiratory system to be more clear and has helped me to breathe better. I think it relaxed me too because there have been times when I have felt really calm during and right after I have used it in my aromatherapy machine.

I'm very happy with this product and I hope to have more success with it in the future through aromatherapy!

Product Review: 20" Wood Easels (Package of 2) by US Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 

These 20" Wood Easels (Package of 2) by US Art Supply are painted black and made of pine wood. They are light-weight and measure 20"High x 15-3/4"Wide x 13-3/8"Deep. They will fit on a tabletop or a desk. There is a chain included that attaches to the back leg and the media holder. It will also fold up so it is easy to store when its not being used.



One of these 20" easels has held a picture with a glass frame pretty nicely on one of the display cases in our living room. There is the concern that the frame is too heavy for the easel but so far it has supported the weight. It would be much better for a picture to stand on it without a glass frame but it was the nicest picture I had accessible to test it. I like the look of this easel and the fact that the media tray is adjustable. The above pictures show the differences of the tray being closer to the bottom and raised about a few inches higher.
 
This easel was a small challenge for me to put together. There were no instructions on how to put the easel together in the package that I noticed. It looks like an easel that is easy to figure out how to put together so that might be why there were no instructions included. The pictures I found with the reviews of this product are what helped me to put it together. And one of my family members attached the chain. So now when I have any similar easels to put together it might be easier if they are anything like the design of this easel.

Not only has it done a great job of holding a picture but it would be great to use to hold a canvas to paint also!

Product Review: 4"x4" Canvas Panels (12 Pack) by US Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This 4" X 4" Canvas Panel (12 Pack) by US Art Supply is made of 100% pure cotton. The canvas is thin (the edges don't stick out very much) is acid-free and contains triple acrylic gesso, which is primed for oil or acrylic painting.

I used one of my tabletop easels to paint on one of these 4"x4" canvas. Even though the canvas was small for the easel it worked really good for me painting it on that. It only took a few coats of paint to cover the areas that needed to be covered with a thin paint brush. I don't remember the canvas moving around on the easel that much (or really even at all). Acrylic paints worked well for me on this size canvas. I like that the edge of this canvas is thin. It takes up less space than canvases that stick out more on the sides.

A group of corn sheaves among grass I painted on one of the 4"x4" canvas panels

I'm still kind of a beginning art student so the picture I painted above is surely not a masterpiece but I think it does show that finding small objects to paint on these canvases are interesting and fun! I believe this size/type of canvas will be good for students and people that like to paint smaller objects.

Product Review: Hanging Toiletry Bag Kit for Men and Women by Dot&Dot


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

This Hanging Toiletry Bag Kit for Men and Women by Dot&Dot is an interesting product that can not only be used while traveling but can also be used at home! Keeping small bottles/packages of deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, a toothbrush, floss, face serum, lotion, a razor, makeup, medications, etc. in one place is easy with this product. There are thee main compartments: The top compartment has a pouch with a zipper and two open pouches, the middle compartment contains a storage pouch with a zipper and mesh screen, and the bottom compartment contains a storage pouch with four places to strap in bottles and also includes a zipper and a mesh screen. The bag will hang on a door knob!



I love that this Hanging Toiletry Kit contains places to strap bottles in the bottom compartment, which allows bottles to have a better chance to stay in the upward position, reducing chances of anything leaking from those bottles. It will reduce clutter on sinks in hotels and homes when it is hung on a door, although people might want to remind themselves that this was hung on a door in a hotel (so they won't forget to take it home later) if it is put in a place that is not seen much (like the side of the door that is hidden when it is opened).



This Toiletry Bag folds and zippers into the size of small lunch box. It has a strap on the top that can be used for carrying or hanging on a door or other place with a small enough knob. When I folded up the Toiletry Bag with the contents in it, two of the bottles came out of place from the straps. The bottles were kind of small and thinner than the others so that is understandable. I will probably get used to what sized bottles work best in those straps.

Overall I am very happy with this product! This Toiletry Bag really is an encouragement to me to travel lighter, since it can be used to put smaller bottles/packages of toiletry items in, when I am used to carrying bigger bottles/packages. I have other travel accessories by Dot&Dot in the same color (I received the purple toiletry bag), so it is nice that this one matches those. I like the option of being able to just hang it on a door when I am home from traveling and use the items right from the bag, without having to unload it soon after I get home. If my counter and drawers become too cluttered I can put items in it that I use a lot and have them readily available to pull out of it later.

The fact that there are three main compartments I think will help people to organize their toiletry items better in this case also. One compartment can be used to store hair liquids, another to store dry items, one to store medications, etc. (or some other pattern). I think many people will probably be happy they can use it both for travel and at home.

Product Review: 6"x6" Stretched Canvas (6 Pack) by US Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This 6 pack of 6"x6" Stretched Canvases by US Art Supply can be used with oil, acrylic, and other painting media. They contain a 3/4 inch profile and kiln-dried stretcher bars, are hand stretched, and are stapled in the back, which gives them staple-free edges. They are triple primed with acrylic gesso which is acid-free.
These canvases were easy to paint on with acrylic paint. I used more than one coat, usually two or three in some places on the canvas. I usually draw what I'm going to paint and fill in the drawing with paint later. When I did it this way some of the black from the pencil bled into the lighter paint colors (I do not think that is a problem with this canvas though). Next time I will probably try to go lighter on the pencil to try to prevent that. The darker paint color I used looked more rich when I painted in comparison to the lighter color of paint. When I needed to erase pencil marks with a drawing eraser this canvas did a great job of allowing them to be erased, barely showing any indication that the pencil marks were there.
A picture of a trumpet I drew on one of these 6"x6" Stretched Canvases
In my opinion, these 6"x6" Stretched Canvases are great for painting individual pictures of objects. They would be great to use as a starting point for beginning artists as well as teaching students about detail in paintings through a smaller-sized canvas area.

Product Review: Pure Handmade Soap: Indian Citrus by Subtle Body Essentials



Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
The Indian Citrus Pure Handmade Soap by Subtle Body Essentials has a sweet, fruity smell to me. I thought maybe it had cranberries in it but after reading the ingredients on the product label I think it might have been the blood orange, orange, and/or tangerine essential oils that I was smelling. It also contains bergamot, lemongrass, lime, madder root, and rosemary extract essential oils, sunflower and/or safflower oils, coconut oil, palm oil (with retained glycerin). The product label also says that it is 85% organic.

I have been enjoying using this soap more than regular soap since I started using it. I still use regular soap sometimes but since I have had this soap it has been the main soap I like to use to wash my arms, legs, back, and stomach. My skin has felt very soft since using it. I like to put it up to my nose and smell it often because of the aroma. It has been hard for me to understand that something that smells so fruity and contains essential oils can be used for soap but I am glad to know that it can. This reminds me of the kind of soap that they might have used in the ancient days because it is handmade and is mostly organic, which is good for me because I love learning about what life might have been like during those days.

If you love using essential oils and organic ingredients then you might enjoy using this handmade soap!

Product Review: PocketSilo by PocketSilo

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


PocketSilo protects your credit cards and other cards that have an RFID chip. The important information from those cards cannot be read when this product is used. Just put your credit cards, driver's license, and/or passport in between these two cards and the data from those cards will be secure! One PocketSilo will protect up to six cards.

I put a few of my credit cards in between this PocketSilo and put it in my wallet. I believe it protected the data from those credit cards. One day during the time period I was testing it, I needed to bring one of my credit cards that contains an RFID chip to work with me. Since I do not like to bring my purse into work with me (which means I wouldn't have my wallet with me), I needed to keep my credit card in my pocket. I put my credit card in between this PocketSilo, put it in between the small plastic insert it shipped with, and then put it in my pocket. This made me feel that my credit card data was safe and secure during the time I carried it around with me during and after work.

This product would be great for people that want to keep up to six of their cards with RFID chips protected together at one time in their wallet, and also for people that need to keep a card with an RFID chip in their pocket or some other small space or compartment.

Product Review: Car Trunk Organizer by Vipinzon


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
This Car Trunk Organizer by Vipinzon is made of strong 600D polyester fabric and will hold up to 75 pounds. It is 21“Long x 15”Wide x 10”Tall and made of non-slop material which will prevent it from sliding all over the trunk. It has two sections and it also has a removable sub-divider, a Velcro pocket in the front, and 4 mesh pockets on the side. The handles make it easier to lift and when it is not being used it will fold flat to half an inch size.


I could tell when I first saw and picked up this Car Trunk Organizer in my hands that it was made of strong material. It didn't feel or look flimsy at all to me. It really came in handy to put my groceries in. I was using a cardboard box to hold some of the groceries in and the other bags that didn't fit in the box would sometimes spill its contents all over my trunk during the drive home.
 
Another thing this Car Trunk Organizer came in handy for was when I recently purchased two packages of towels that I was in need of. Instead of putting them on the floor of my trunk to possibly roll around a lot during my trip home, they both fit nicely in this trunk organizer.

Not only does it work great in a car but it for SUVs, trucks, and minivans also!
