Pick of the Month – Instant Pot

Greetings! Jen Flaherty here with this month’s Pick of the Month – The Instant Pot. Have you heard of it? The Instant Pot is a modern day pressure cooker. What makes it modern, you ask? The Instant Pot does it all from cooking perfect rice to soups and stews, meats, bread (yes, bread!), yogurt…the list goes on. And it cooks it all in an instant, thus the name. In addition, the Instant Pot has a slow cooker mode as well, so you can kiss your slow cooker goodbye (or shove it to the back of the cabinet). This purchase has been a game changer for me. Let me tell you why.

Pick of the Month-SciStarter

Being an engineer that means I’m kind of a science geek. My kids would attest to this. They’ve grown up with my dragging them to see a lock and dam system in action, putting up with my rock collecting on every vacation and repeatedly calling them to observe the wildlife right in our own backyard. I’ve recently discovered SciStarter, a place for actively participating in citizen science projects all over the place.

Gesture Drawing 2.1

How to improve your drawing ?

That’s a question I have all the time. I became very interested in drawing 2 years ago and did many online classes but mostly they were to draw whimsical faces and or girls, but recently following some artists that draw faces I’ve noticed they started going to museums for sessions of gesture drawing.

Usually art places do that for a minor fee they have a live model and people have specific  time window to draw  each pose. This system helps you to forget about perfection as you have a short time to draw. It’s more about perception of shapes than realistic drawing.

Pick of the Month: Books

I’m taking a chance here and admitting that I love books even more than I love digi scrapping. My childhood was filled with all sorts of books and my mom instilled in me the wonderful habit of reading before bedtime. I still can’t get into sleep mode without spending time reading–although nowadays I read most my books in an electronic format. To keep my voracious book habit in check I’ve turned to seeking bargains.

Pick of the Month: Fitocracy

Hi there all you Scrapaneers! It’s time for this month’s pick of the month. I’ve struggled over the last few years to get into a consistent workout routine. I thought back to the times when I did workout most consistently to see what helped me to stay motivated. I discovered that it was a couple of things: having a trainer that pushed me to do things I didn’t think I could do and a set plan.

Hi everyone. Happy summer! Can you believe it’s the end of June already? Next week we’ll be celebrating the 4th of July here in the US. As it always does, summer is flying by.
