Frozen 2 : Reviews, Chat and Quotes

Let’s chat a lil’ bit about Frozen 2. One reason it’s such a magical Disney movie is because the focus is on the beyond between sisters, rather than the desire for the love of a prince. It’s a love story like no other.

Plus, who doesn’t love Olaf’s happy, always sunny side up, positive outlook? He’s a fan favorite for very good reason!

With Frozen 2 hitting theaters just in time for Thanksgiving, I’m certain Disney will continue the theme of “family”. I’m excited to see these sisters embark on exciting adventures and face new challenges together.

What are the critics saying about this much anticipated sequel to the 2013 original?

Will Frozen 2 live up to the expectations following its successor or will moviegoers hope Disney will “let it go”?

The anticipated sequel, standing at 84 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, picks up three years after the 2013 film and centers on Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad) and Sven embarking on a journey that goes beyond their homeland of Arendelle to discover the origin of Elsa’s powers and to save their kingdom.

In The Hollywood Reporter, critic Todd McCarthy teases that the audience should “expect the unexpected” when it comes to the new installment of the popular Disney film. However, Disney abides by the same successful formula of “catchy new songs, more time with easy-to-like characters, striking backdrops, cute little jokes” and a “voyage of discovery plot and female empowerment galore.” McCarthy notes that the film’s storyline “flirts with the dark side,” but ventures into colorful destinations sure to satisfy both original and new fans.

He also commends Jennifer Lee’s script — Lee also wrote the first installment and co-directed both with Chris Buck — for revamping Elsa as a “serious role model/inspiration for girls and young women” by portraying a resident and positive character “able to overcome any challenge in her path.” By adding elements of darkness into the lighthearted story, McCarthy writes that Lee is able to create a “desired balance among drama, excitement, comedy, suspense, action and inspiration.” Though it’s conspicuous that there are “many cooks” in the Disney kitchen, McCarthy notes that the overall recipe for the sequel is a “good one.”

Richard Lawson of Vanity Fair notes that while children at the screening he attended found Anna and Elsa’s latest adventure “pretty exciting, pretty funny, pretty transporting,” as confirmed by “giddy shrieks and laughs,” he isn’t as convinced the follow-up was so great or so necessary. Trying to justify its need, Lawson writes that the Frozen team was “forced to go bigger, grander, more existential, while still keeping things accessible to children” and ultimately became a “balancing act” the sequel couldn’t handle. Despite the story offering more to the sister-princess duo’s identities and gifting Elsa an exploration story similar to that of Vanellope’s in Ralph Breaks the Internet, Frozen 2‘s “discoveries are rushed and are served up half-baked.”

Elsa: What would I do without you?
Anna: You’ll always have me.

New Opportunities Await : Refreshing business model, Gypsy Spoonful is a pioneer in the handmade world

New opportunities await</font color> “To the untrained eye, a geode looks pretty much like an ordinary rock. But a trained geologist knows that inside the geode there is a beautiful crystal lining.

“To the untrained eye, a geode looks pretty much like an ordinary rock. But a trained geologist knows that inside the geode there is a beautiful crystal lining. The story is the same for those who refuse to examine new possibilities because their minds are closed. Life’s greatest opportunities, like the geode, often come in ordinary packaging. Do not allow yourself to become such a creature of habit that you simply go through the motions and let life happen to you. Just taking a new route to work, putting together a jigsaw puzzle, reading a newspaper instead of watching television, or visiting a museum at lunchtime will stimulate your thought processes and may help you open your mind to new possibilities.”

-Napoleon Hill

Keep an open mind quote

The past 10 days I’ve been busy, busy, busy recruiting makers for Gypsy Spoonful. We have had 25 new shops join in that time. I am so thankful for these new members for keeping an open mind, and listening to what Gypsy Spoonful can offer them. I’ve probably contacted hundreds of people telling them about the opportunity GS holds, many didn’t reply … some did reply and weren’t interested, but I tried to remember, that’s most likely not even about what I’m “pitching” to them.. it could be that they are in a difficult season of their life, or it could be that they’re undergoing some business or personal challenges right now. I truly believe that those who are meant to be here, will be here, at exactly the right time. We’re not for everyone, but we are for the RIGHT people.

 

It’s a very exciting time for Gypsy Spoonful.. we’re kicking it into high gear and taking this bus to the next level.

Are you a maker/designer/artist/crafter/sewist/quilter/painter or other type of creative entrepreneur? Check out what we believe about handmade and what we believe about small business in America.. if you vibe with what we’re all about and our business model, then please, fill out the application and we’ll be in touch

Just like Napoleon Hill said in his quote as outlined above, just keep an open mind, this could be the best thing that has ever happened to you personally or professionally, but you’ll never know if you shut down the very thought of it. Just be open to being open is all we ask. We know that new opportunities await, if you’ll just open the door, and apply.

Truth be told..We are NOT Etsy, we don’t claim to be… and in all honesty, we don’t want to be Etsy.. they’ve lost their way which is definitely disappointing~but I digress… GypsySpoonful can most definitely offer you things that Etsy can not.

We can give you a FOCUSED market that is ONLY looking for handmade items~ not vintage, not supplies… they appreciate handmade and all the good things that encompass it.

We can give you a supportive, community of makers where we help each other, cheer each other on, support each other and encourage each other.

We believe in community before competition. Yes, there may be makers that make similar items in our ranks but we HELP each other, rather than COMPETE with each other. You will find no other selling platform with a hands-on admin team that mentors and teaches shop owners. I guarantee it.

We are SERIOUS about selling and making money with our shops and handmade products, the positivity is not pollyanna or apple pie in the sky, it’s genuine, authentic entrepreneurs who are hustlers but are not cut-throat and back stabbing. It’s a very refreshing business model that you will NOT find anywhere else.

We will welcome you with open arms and meet you where you’re at, no matter what your business goals, dreams and strategies may be.

Give us a shot.. have an open mind… and check us out. You’ll be happy you did, I think!
