              A top designer in dried floral welcomes you into her studio to learn the craft's potential. Today in floral design, dried flowers and botanicals give their fresh cousins a strong run for their long-held position as the classic material.

Antonia De Vere, a top designer in dried floral creations, here welcomes you into her studio to understand the potential you'll be able to enjoy when working with dried flowers. She shares how and why dried floral has become her career and her source of creative energy. In photos and text, De Vere shows you dozens of exciting ideas through her creations, which range from 10-foot-high restaurant installations to delicately shaped ikebana-inspired pieces to small sparks of pop art in bud vases. Learn how to select, dry, and assemble flowers and foliage. Then enjoy 18 step-by-step projects that bring De Vere's popular design style into your own home. This art's sustainability and zero-waste focus - damaged flowers that can't be sold for fresh bouquets can be used productively - is another reason forever flowers are perfect for today.

              For marine, boating, and climbing amateurs and professionals at all levels, splices-the strongest way of attaching or joining the end of a rope-are essential. Why? Because a splice gives the strongest way of attaching or joining the end of a rope to any object or to another rope.... (Every knot, on the other hand, weakens a rope.) In this much-anticipated handbook, world-renowned expert Friedl guides you through modern splicing techniques with his clear directions, one-of-a-kind color diagrams, and 200+ color photos. The book is supplemented by four-plus hours of excellent video instruction. Throughout, every type of splice is shown by an expert climber and shipbuilder. Learn what to know before starting to splice, then build a solid understanding and competence of modern cordage, its construction, and its fiber materials. Friedl has over 35 years of sailing experience, including several Atlantic crossings, and is also a professional climber. He teaches seminars and workshops on modern splicing worldwide, and in 2006, Friedl made the modern soft shackle internationally known. Now, his much-anticipated book allows you, whether you are a hobbyist or a professional, to leverage splicing skills to become more self-reliant while making your maritime or climbing pursuits safer.

              The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. But illness has meaning and can express mineral or vitamin deficiencies, inherited or acquired weakness, or the location... of toxins in the system. An approach focused on treating them doesn't cure the pathology that caused them, and they can show up in another manner. Iridology is a method of examining the iris, the colored portion of the eye, to establish an assessment of health and vitality. By analyzing the color, the texture, and the pigmentation of the iris, we can determine inherited and genetic predispositions toward certain illnesses. Iridology can contribute to the well-being of the person by treating the origins of the symptoms. Observing the body's needs through the panoramic view of the iris, you can take care of your health in a simple and efficient manner. Discover the benefits of iridology.
