A large chunk of the book is devoted to massage techniques–sensual massage, baby massage, and reflexology. But the aromatic remedies for everything from athlete’s foot and arthritis to varicose veins is what makes this book supremely useful for family health. The book finishes with a very handy index of essential oils, with half a page devoted to each, featuring safety data, identifying photos of the plant, and thorough lists of characteristics and actions.

Black & Decker the Complete Guide to Home Storage: More Than 50 Practical Projects & Ideas

Black & Decker the Complete Guide to Home Storage: More Than 50 Practical Projects & Ideas


At any given moment, your home probably contains thousands of moveable items, some large but most small: dishes and drain cleaners, blankets and baby books, socks and sleeping bags, hammers and hotdog buns, candles and can-openers and cribbage boards. In a perfect world, most of these items have homes-places where they’re stored outside daily view but where you can find them at a moments notice. In our imperfect world, though, there are probably hundreds of items that are nomads, transients. They have temporary, exposed residences in jumbled drawers, on top of cabinets, across desktops, on window ledges. How often have you looked long and hard for an item in every logical storage place, only to find that it’s been hiding in plain view, in the last place you’d expect? The goal of this book is to help you bring order to this jumble, to tame and civilize the hoards of small and large household items begging for permanent, logical storage. To do this, we’ll give you dozens of easy-to-build storage projects. Each is designed for adaptability and versatility, so you can use it for a variety of different purposes in various rooms. Some projects may require small alterations, but others can be built exactly as directed. Before getting to the projects, we give you a section on planning and assessing, and a section on general building techniques that will be useful in many different projects. After that, it’s off to the storage races, with more than 50 projects, ranging from basic wall cabinets to innovative racks for storing CDs and home electronics. While many projects use standard lumber and other building pipe and electrical conduit. Have fun with these projects. Take the time to plan themout, and take pride in them when you’re finished. Remember: When you increase the efficiency of your storage space, you create a more comfortable living environment for yourself and your family. Innovative, attractive projects that can provide efficient storage throughout your home Easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for projects at all skill levels Shows how to frame, finish and organize a brand-new closet Variations and ideas sections to help you adapt projects to your needs Detailed techniques section for working with power and hand tools

12 Pieces Of Advice For Artists More Practical Than ‘Follow Your Heart’

 ”Follow your heart.” “Trust your gut.” “Find your voice.” “Stay true to your vision.”

It’s not that there isn’t merit to these oft-touted nuggets of wisdom for aspiring artists, it’s just that, sometimes, following your heart won’t help you pay rent on time. 

If you’re looking for the kind of advice that, while it may not look as great on an inspirational postcard, will help you actually sustain yourself as a working artist, we highly suggest Alix Sloan‘s Launching Your Art Career: A Practical Guide for Artists.

Sloan, a curator and consultant, enlists the help of 40 artists and dealers to compile a bullshit-free guide to making art, making connections, making sales and making money. We’ve compiled some of our favorite parts below, to give you a taste. 

Behold, 12 pieces of actually practical advice for a struggling, emerging or really any sort of artist.

1. Take the job. “Don’t be one of those cliché art school kids who considers himself above the idea of art as commodity. Take the commercial work. Take the design work. Do the band’s poster for $ 20 and a six-pack. Do whatever it takes to be able to call yourself a working artist. It’s a noble title, regardless of the particulars.” Noah Antieau, art dealer

2. Make nice! “Your best connections are your peers. Stay in contact with them. Be curious. Visit other artist’s studios and add like-minded people to your mailing list.” -Cara Enteles, artist

3. Do you. “Aim to have people recognize your work in a crowded room … to know immediately that it’s undeniably yours.” -Lori Field, artist 

 4. Get some perspective. “Gaining perspective by observing your practice amongst a field of others, and the culture and time in which it is done, is a career goal that follows a wide arc … It is not the sole responsibility of your art dealer, for example, to place your work in cultural context, nor should you allow this without your input.” -Martin Kruck, artist 

5. It’s just another job. “When I’m talking with younger artists I stress that making, exhibiting and selling art in a commercial gallery is just like any other job one hopes to be successful at. It means working hard, honoring deadlines and trusting your co-workers to do their jobs well too.” -William Baczek, art dealer

6. Don’t go crazy with the zeros. “Don’t raise your prices too fast because once they are up, you should not lower them.” -Jayme McLellan, art dealer 

7. More, more, more! “Feed your output with as much input (books, lectures, films, leisure, rest) as you can handle, and in some cases, more than you can manage.” -Didier William, artist 

8. Keep your friends close and your inspiration closer. “Now there are endless images at your fingertips, but you need to find the ones that awaken your creativity and keep them near to you. Sometimes it can be something blurry and vague … I have this one little scrap of paper with a very low-res image of a kitten’s face on it, and something about it makes me come back to it again and again, trying to capture something elusive about it. When you find an image like that, hold onto it like it was gold.” -Marion Peck, artist 

9. Get that domain name stat. “You don’t need business cards. You do need a website.” -Zach Feuer, art dealer

10. Don’t get comfortable. “You may have to work at a real job while you are making this happen. DO NOT get a creative job. Get a job you won’t get comfortable in. Save all your creative juices for your own art practice!” -Martha Rich, artist  

11. Embrace the tribe. “It’s good to remember (not when you are making new work as it might be better to forget) that there are armies of manically mono-focused people (I almost said monsters) out there who want something close to what you want. They are your tribe, not your enemy.” -David Humphrey, artist 

12. Go outside. “Stay deeply connected to what’s going on in your own art world. Under no circumstances isolate yourself in the studio with a solitary practice, thinking you’re some kind of lone wolf or Van Gogh.” -Mark Wolfe, art dealer
