Blockhead Rod's Friday Night Features.....Kewl Magnets and Double Standards

First thing first. I have to admit that I am having a riot doing this show. I am getting to talk to some great artisans and musicians. This past Friday we featured Ms Picard from picardcreative and the Double Standards CD from Patti Rothberg.

"Why buy a greeting card that will just get tossed in a drawer and forgotten? buy your friends a piece of art that they will use and treasure. Great for all occasions. birthdays, congratulations, cheer up, divorce, or just because. Everybody loves and needs magnets. mine are silly, sarcastic, artistic and in some cases- downright rude."

I feel in love with her magnets. I had seen her shop but it was a thread that our ol' buddy ShineyHiney posted that got me to really look. (and yes the invoice is on the way for the plug) Ms Picard joined me on air and we had a lot of fun together. She has a great sense of humor and some really cool magnets. She combines photo's with sayings and they all had me laughing. It was hard to pick out a favorite but here I go:

Product Description: think about it- isnt it true? uh huh!

Magnets are always buy 5 get one FREE. Just list the desired free magnet in the paypal notes to seller section when you check out and I will add it to your order for Free- no additional shipping or nothin!

These are so much fun- artistic and practical at the same time. These are all handmade- (well, except the lids)
I love doing collage work and each one will have its own specialness.

Be sure to check out my packaging- I Send each magnet packaged in an organza bag with my card attached. (colors of bag may vary)

There is nothing better than the gift of laughter and handmade art.

I make these using recycled tin can lids that I have rescued- I also beg all my friends to save their lids for me. They are coated with glaze to protect the image- and keep it wonderful for years and years.

I have a very absurd sense of humor and love to make people laugh. I enjoy making these magnets.

Picardcreative will also do custom orders and has a buy 5 get 1 free deal. Works out great for us with 6 kids and the grandparents. Visit Ms Picard today.

Now some great music.
Double Standards by Patti Rothberg. Patti Rothberg is a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter whose songs have the power to take over a stadium without losing their lyrical intimacy. On Double Standards, Rothberg's razor sharp wit and stark honesty trade barbs in the studio where she thrives in her creative freedom and at last releases an album that reflects her talent as a whole. While the album's lyrics delve into concepts that are more than meets the eye, musically it's split down the middle between hard rock that hang out with the guys and heartfelt acoustic songs. Rothberg likes to think that Double Standards been released in the age of vinyl, the rockin' songs might all go one side and the acoustic on the other. An electric guitar-wielding rock chick with a novelist's introspection, Patti is the rare artist who can work both sides of the musical spectrum.
