Be Attitudes

Placed on your desk or countertop, this thought-provoking paperweight from designer Tamara Hensick provides a constant reminder to be your best self. Cast in solid pewter, the word "Be..." is accompanied by a series of cards printed with positive qualities, such as "reliable", "thankful", and "honest". The cards can be displayed in a slot across the top of the ellipsis as a prompt to remember a quality you wish to develop. Or choose a random card each day to focus on a different part of your personal growth. Made in Los Angeles, California.

“I'm inspired by the idea that all that is built, made, painted, and fabricated by humans was an idea. What an amazing thought, and it means nothing is impossible.”

Tamara Hensick is a sculptor whose muses are manifold, and range from ideas and idioms to funny notions, stories, and fairytales. Her first piece was a chicken wishbone molded and cast in sterling silver to inspire one to always make wishes. Sculpting in soft, malleable jeweler's wax and hardening clays, her finished designs are molded and cast in various metals. Her collection of cast pewter, sterling silver, and bronze pieces include organic, figure, animal, and object motifs that bring a saying, idea, or whimsical phrase to life.

I bought this for my mother for her birthday. She loves different and thoughtful gifts. I thought that I wasn't going to find anything and then I came upon this. Its great because it puts your mind in a positive place and if you are a believer in "The Secret" You want to keep your thoughts positive, so you can attract things to you. I told her that she could take it to the office or keep it at home. My mother called me and said it was perfect she is putting it in her office and she is going to switch out the cards everyday, so when people come in she can tell them to be that for the day instead of negative. Its also a great reminder for herself. There are so far no cons for this item because I wasn't there when she opened it we live in separate states.

I intended this gift to be used on someone's desk at work however, the cards are so small, I didn't bother giving them the gift. I considered just remaking all of the cards with larger and prettier font but then I figured why pay all that money for something that I wasn't happy with. A very cool concept but the execution was not what I was hoping for.

        Given as a gift to two of my colleagues for their birthdays. Meant to be inspirational and encouraging. They both keep it on their desk in their home offices. The only comment one made was that the cards were a little small but she still loved it.

          This item was purchased as a retirement gift for a very good friend. Without me having to tell her what to do with it, she was able to explain to others exactly how it works. She's decided to pick a card at random daily and strive to live her day accordingly.

                Unique design. Great for the individual who appreciates the value of daily gratitude. Too early to know if recipient appreciates the quality and uniqueness of the gift.

                  This was much smaller than anticipated, especially for the price. I think it's a great concept and the recipient will definitely use it. Just wish it was larger and had bigger cards.

                  While I love this product, having received it myself as a gift, I was very disappointed that when I ordered it for my daughter-in-law, it was mailed to me & not to her at her Nashville address.
