DIY: Gallery Photo Arrangement

For some reason, I’ve always seen the apartment I live in as a temporary space and so decorating the walls was the last thing on my mind. I got a couple of framed flower prints from my sister-in-law one birthday, and those went up in the dining area. A poster went up above one of the couches because I saw one of a favorite painting for three bucks. Six years in, that’s pretty much all that was decorated in the living room area. A huge, blank, white wall sat behind our couch, the focal point on entry. After using a Groupon on some fancy framing for one of our wedding photos, I decided that it was about time to correct this.

Picture This: Depth of Field

A art professor once told me that he believed everyone had the potential to be a great artist.

Profile In Flabulousness: Nancy Upton (She’s The Next Big Thing, For Real)

Even if you don’t totally recognize the name Nancy Upton, you have seen her pictures everywhere. For the last two weeks, news outlets and blogs have been abuzz about the woman who entered American Apparel’s Next Big Thing Contest by sending in pictures of herself bathed in ranch dressing, eating in a pool, and covering her lady regions with a cherry pie. For those in the know, it was clear that her intent was to skewer the way American Apparel and other fashion industry giants seem to view plus-sized women.
