Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

DIY Fashion Print Wall Art for Girl's Room


I often use prints from art books and calendars to create DIY wall art that looks expensive but is actually very affordable. I've been redoing my daughters' room this summer from shabby chic to something a little more modern. As my oldest daughter inches towards her tween years, she is becoming more and more obsessed with fashion. When I saw this Barbie calendar at a home decor shop, I snatched it right up to turn it into matching fashion prints for her walk-in closet. The project took less than an hour and cost me a total of $15.00. To make your own prints simply follow the instructions below and refer to the supply list.

Supplies Needed:
  • four 8" by 10" picture frames
  • one art or photo print calendar
  • scissors and a pencil


Tip: Pick inexpensive frames. I got mine for a few dollars a piece. Sometimes it's best to invest in something that will last a long time. However, whenever you're purchasing something that isn't going to get daily wear (other than hanging on a wall), it isn't necessary to pay more for durability.

Instructions:

Start by taking the insert or mat out of the frame. Use that as a quick guide to trace over the images you've picked then cut each one out.






Clean the inside glass on the picture frame before placing the print inside the frame. Pick a frame in which the back rest lays flat behind the outer frame so the picture will hang perfectly flat against the wall.


You can use many different prints to achieve this low-cost artwork in other rooms of your home. Browse the clearance books at Barnes & Noble for large art books. I turned a $15.00 Gustav Klimt book into professional, expensive-looking framed prints, and in my bedroom I hung prints from an Alexander McQueen calendar I got at the Savage Beauty exhibit at the Met in New York. With this simple DIY project, you can add beautiful art prints to your home decor for under $20.00.
