“IIIIIII want to swiiiiing from the chandeliE-E-ER!”  I sure hope my daughter does not attempt that act with this cute one I re-did for her bedroom!  It was really easy and is definitely something that can be done in a day!

My parents did a swap with us when we replaced our dining room light fixture. We got this new from World Market:

My mom was a little surprised that I wanted it. But I had a hunch that my toddler who is all “princess this, princess that,” would love a fancy light in her room! Just not with those glass shades or 80’s/90’s brass.  How about some PINK!

Photography 101

Here is a video that I have found to be very informative as well as entertaining. If you are anything like me, I just love to dab into anything artsy and creative. In my past life I have always used whatever camera was available to point and shoot. Now that I have taken an interest in film, I have discovered the DSLR. While in class I was feeling a little squirmish when my instructor spoke about aperture, f-stop, shutter speed, shallow depth of field and ISO. I don’t know which is most intimidating all the information on the display or trying to understand all the features to take good pictures. How in the world do people remember all that stuff especially when you have to remember high numbers mean low light and vice versa. However, here is a video that will show you what all that details. Hope you enjoy. These cameras cost too much not to know how to operate them.

Artist Nikkolas Smith‘simage of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (pictured) wearing a hoodie, a reference to the Trayvon Martin case,  went viral this week.

Titled, “April 4, 1968″ (the day King was assassinated), the image appears on a web gallery of posters supporting gun control. The image quickly spread through social media sites, after former President Barack Obama adviser Van Jones re-tweeted the image following the verdict.

Nikkolas Smith, the image’s creator, says he wanted to spark discussion about stereotypes of Black men in hoodies, when the Martin case first broke.

“There was this whole national outcry, a hoodie movement and everybody was rocking their hoods and everything,” Smith told Buzzfeed. “Just…
