Appreciating the Arts (& Crafts!)-----3 Product Reviews!

First up today is this pack of 3d pen filament refills.

I got the gold set of these filaments. I like the overall quality of these-the color is nice. I tested this in both of my 3D pens and didn't have any jamming problems-nice and smooth.

Despite being a nice quality product, I don't think I'll honestly be buying these again, at least not on a regular basis. This was my first time using filament like this, in "stick" form as opposed to "reel" form. I found it extremely inconvenient to have to keep reloading them on a large project and I don't feel like it came out as smooth because of it.

I also did a cost comparison on these and they tend to be a bit more expensive than other options.

These strands 16.6 cents/ft
10 M reel of 1 color=13.7 cents/ft
Mixed color reel pack .08 cents/ft
1 kg spool of 1 color =.02 cents/ft

Of course, these do definitely have a place. If you just want an accent color for something, there's no need to buy a huge reel of that particular filament or if only want a very specific color, no need to buy mixed packs.

Next up is this Amazing Reef Color Book.

I have enjoyed the "adult coloring book" craze going on lately. My impression of this coloring book:It's cool because you can tell that the pages are made from REAL photographs. But the fact that they're real photos outlined makes for some fuzzy lines, some pages crowded, others pretty empty. I still really enjoyed coloring in it and would give it 4 out of 5 stars.

My friend's music is the accompanying music, she's so talented!

And speaking of music, here's this cutie ;)

Small Jean Bluetooth Speaker---

This seriously drips with adorable-being so small and cute!  I honestly didn't realize it would be so small, but looks can be deceiving.....this can crank up the music!!!  My husband and I were in shock and awe about how powerful this little gal (I feel it's more of a gal than a guy? is.  This was pretty easy to pair to my phone (it's a windows phone...kinda sometimes it doesn't play nice with all the technology out there, but this worked great). 

The operation is pretty straight forward-3 buttons.  back/volume down, forward/volume up, on/pause/off.  The first two buttons mentioned are on the sides on nice brass buttons like you'd see on jeans.  It has an attached carabiner clip to make it easy to take with you. 

If I were to give any criticism, it would actually be the buttons.  It took me a while to get used to them and kept accidentally changing the song while trying to adjust the volume.  Otherwise, I really do love this!
