I love books. We have so many bookshelves filled with them. Each one is an exciting package of delightful trinkets of knowledge or adventure. It's no surprise that I would also love book DIY projects!! Here are some of my favorites right now:
Matt, Artemis, and I will be packing up and moving West--with just a few (months of) stops along the way. We'll make it to our new apartment in Los Angeles by Christmas, but in the meantime I'll be living out of a suitcase and dreaming about decor like this....

So while I was away for a week, Matt moved into my workspace--turns out he also loves the natural light. Anyway, I had some pictures of our niece lying on the desk and Matt wanted to prop them up (he loves that baby and it is so cute), so he fashioned these little frames. I thought I'd show you how.
This is a great way to keep rotating pictures--so easy at home or at work. And cute!
To begin, may I suggest that you only shampoo your hair 2-3 times a week? (And when you do so, please try to use an organic shampoo that is sulfate-free). Once out of the shower, gently pat hair dry with a towel. Run your fingers through it to detangle--no brushing!
Take a quarter size dollop of gel or hair cream (may I suggest Lush King of the Mods? It smells like a dream) and run through hair from roots to tips--just enough to lightly coat the hair. Too much gel will result in crunchy curls.
Feel free to let it air dry from here, helping to boost it at the roots. Or give them a head start by using a diffuser on the low setting to begin the drying process. Just keep in mind, too much time with the blow-dryer with dry your curls out.
Voila! All done--wear those curls wild like nature intended.
