Book Review: Slob Proof by Debbie Wiener

I am a slob.

When I was pitched Slob Proof! Real-life design Solutions by Debbie Wiener to review, I said YES! In my head lay plans to re-do the kid's closet, which is such a mess that it's pretty pathetic. A certain organizing store did send me plans, but I still need to actually go buy the materials and make it happen. I also have plans to turn my home office into more of a sitting room since most of my work happens at the kitchen table or on the couch since getting a laptop.

This book didn't give me the answers I was hoping BUT it did a hell of a lot more.

What Wiener does is answer a lot of the questions you think you should know already, but are afraid to ask such as:

  • What should I look for in a couch besides the color and comfy level?
  • I need to replace my lighting, what should I do?
  • How do I choose paint colors?
The next time I head to a DIY/decorating store or the home of cheap but cute furniture, I'm so bringing this book.

Now to get moving on the kid's closet. She has a lot of clothes & books that need a storing!

Get your decorating act together thru an indie bookseller or Powells.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
