Such a neat idea... Just wondering... one of the books is from Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, and that's where I grew up putting millions of books on hold as a kid. Did you get that book there or was it just passed along to you? :)

This is one of the most magical ideas I've heard of! The two books I'm going to suggest are two of my all time favourites! - The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. This book changed my life. It's a story that made me appreciate many things in my life and one I couldn't get off my mind. It's also written beautifully and the book cover and the letters inside are beautiful and engaging. - Hippies in the City by Rita Balshaw. This is a non fiction book and the perfect guide to living a happier and healthier life with the resources available to you. It's great and the recipes, tips and tricks are amazing and I use them everyday.

Post image for DIY: Used Coffee Ground Bombs For Your Sink

well I tried the coffee ground bombs and they "bombed" they are way too watery. They just melt into flat, watery, pancakes on the cookie sheet. I even added 1/2 cup more of each salts and soda and cannot get it to stiffen up to put on a pan to harden. Maybe someone is trying to tell me this is not such a good idea, since I have read all the comments about the pipes in your house and the waste water treatmeent plant/ I think I will stick to orange peels and vinegar and soda when I feel it needs freshening up.

Trust me...my husband is a mechanical contractor and this is a BAD idea! Coffee grounds are excellent in the garden but he'll on your pipes!

Honestly, I'm grateful for so many things in my life, but if I had to choose it would be that truly grateful for my loved ones health. Being able to see them everyday and share moments with them. I'm also truly grateful financially. Sure I can't afford everything I want, but I have what I need and I'm truly grateful for that. Finally, I'm grateful that I'm right here, typing, being able to enjoy my life, happy, and having all this love and support from the ones I love. Thank you ✨
Jovanna -Oct 16, 2015, 6:31PM
I'm so sorry. I hate to be "that" person, but there is a typo in your posting and I feel that you should know so it can be corrected before anyone else sees it. In the first paragraph, " ...popular, making evening the simplest words..." I believe "evening" should be replaced with "even". You may delete my comment if you wish after the correction is made. :)

Post image for Celebrate Nature Photography Day With DIY Film Soaking

This post comes from our former web studio intern, Sadie!

Hi Sadie, first of all I wanted to thank you for writing this comprehensive tutorial, I loved reading it. And I wanted to ask you, what material did you use for the soaking in the film of the very first photo? I adore those colors and the dreamlike quality of the pics. Thanks again!
Sadie -Jun 28, 2015, 9:02AM
Hi Christina! When drying the film using the methods I listed above (rice, then air drying) I actually just leave the film in the canister. Some people do take the film out of the canister and let it hang to let it air dry - usually in their dark room or in a pitch black/safe lit bathroom. While hang drying it in the dark is certainly faster than drying it in the canister, I just think it is a bit more simple to leave it in the canister and wait a bit longer for it to dry. :)
