*Holiday Gift Guide 2015*
I discovered a website upon my google search for different books that I thought my teenager and younger daughter may enjoy. When I found Ulysses Press I looked through their website and was amazed and how many different, and interesting books they have. I picked a couple out that I thought my kids may enjoy.
Cover Art by Liz Emirzian features 20 hangable prints from some of the greatest novels. Each print is on a cardstock sheet perforated for easy tearing. In addition, it will fit any 8×10 frame or any 5×7 matte. Each design compliments one another which in turn makes it perfect for framing each one to create a stylish collection your wall. On the back of each print, the author writes about the inspiration for the artwork giving history and a story behind the famous novel.
I received this book for my older daughter as she loves to make different cake pops. My daughters passion is baking and she wants to go to the Culinary Institute of America when she graduates High School next year. I thought maybe with this book she could come up with some cool cake pops and maybe even put her own spin on them. We have not had a chance to make any yet, but with Christmas around the corner we do plan on using some of the ideas in this book and will post them for all to see.
The Crazy for Cake Pop book is loaded with color photos and features step by step guides on how to make the perfect creation. In addition, it has tips, tricks and teaches different techniques to master preparing chocolates, frosting, and shaping the cake pops. No matter what occasion it is, you are sure to find a cake pop in this book that will be enjoyed by all.You can make cake pops into snowmen, purses, tropical fish, ice cream cones, flowers and more.
Who said coloring was just for kids? Not this girl! I have always wanted an adult coloring book to immerse myself into. This one is for my daughter for Christmas, After looking at all the beautiful pages to color I need to order myself one real soon. Coloring can help alleviate stress and help relax your mind.

Attention all cat lovers! These are the perfect stickers for you if you adore cats. I was never a cat lover until my husband and I decided to get our own kittens. Now I cannot imagine my life without them both. These cat stickers will surely put a smile on your face. Each page has 10 unique stickers that you can place anywhere. Emoticat Stickers show personality with human-like expressions such as shock, anger, surprise, smiles, winks and frowns. This sticker book can be a great holiday gift for the crazy cat person. Use them to decorate objects with or simply enjoy them as they are in the book. My daughter decorated her school binder with them.
