"Create or Die" Hugh MacLeod Art Piece Deal

Image
Hugh MacLeod, the man behind www.gapingvoid.com, was one of first cartoonists on the blogging scene. For years he gave away his art or used it to help promote his favorite products. These cartoons have become collectibles, selling for as much as $1,000 each. Last year, Hugh decided to reproduce some of these as limited edition fine art-serigraphs. Early that pieces sold for as little as $175.00 are now $600.00 retail.

Hugh recently decided to offer a gift as a thank you to the subscribers on his mailing list: One of his big, $400 images, call "Create or Die", at a steeply discounted price. They sold fast, but I recently became aware that there is a semi-secret discount code available, that can be used to reduce the price of this limited edition print to just $165, which is a discount of about 60%.

So, if you want one of these uber-cool screen prints, just go to the gapingvoid gallery, to the "Create of Die" page and go through the process as if you were going to …

Cottonelle Flushable Moist Wipes

Once my youngest was potty trained, I started using flushable wipes in the bathroom for her to make sure she cleaned herself well enough.  Then after awhile, we stopped using them.  One day, maybe a year later, I was watching Dr. Oz I believe and he made a comment about how we use water to wash our hands, take showers, etc but not when going the bathroom.  Would you use just paper towel after wiping on your hands?  No way, how gross, right??  So, I went back to using them.  Now Cottenelle is taking this topic serious, but in a humorous way.


Cottonelle is giving us reason to rethink our families' and our own bathroom routines with Cottonelle brand Flushable Moist Wipes, designed to leave a fresher, cleaner feeling than dry toilet paper alone. Cottonelle understands that talking about flushable moist wipes with a friend isn't as natural as sharing a favorite TV show or recipe, but their humorous approach has already inspired over half a million people to 'get fresh' since…

Yube Cube ~ Organizing Genius! ~ Perfect for Scrapbookers

I was recently invited to try out a new European organizing solution called Yube. The Yube is a 13-inch cubes made exclusively of recyclable and biodegradable materials.  The modules snap together easily and lock rigidly when the back panel is slid into place.Yubeis easily assemble into virtually any furniture design.  Consumers can configure, build and decorate a layout to suit their personal taste usingYube’s flexible building-block system to create tables, desks, shelves, room-dividers and any piece the user can devise.
I was sent 1 Yube cube to try out.  It also came with 2 plexiglass shelves & 2 fabric storage bins.  My first thought was office use, but then realized with it being 13 inches, it was perfect for 12 x 12 scrapbook paper.  The customizable shelves, make the perfect system for any scrapbooker or paper crafter that uses the larger size paper like 12 x 12. When I opened the box, I was impressed with how sturdy the Yube is.  It can definetely hold some weight, very dur…
