Intro When taking close-up photos, the lighting can become a problem. The good old flash works most of the time but usually it leaves nasty shadows that do not go well with the photo. There are couple of solutions to this problem; a second flash to remove the shadows and light the scene more evenly or to use a ring light that surrounds the target object with uniform light from every direction.

Wall Art for Sienna's Room First off, let me just say, I really love photos printed onto a canvas. Really. I knew I wanted a set of them in Sienna's room, but as most of you know, we are still students so our decorating budget didn't exactly cover printing four 8"x10" photos onto a canvas. It's pretty darn expensive for just one let alone FOUR!!! I had seen a few ideas online about getting pictures printed out, then just mod-podging the picture onto the canvas, and sanding the sides a bit, which I liked, but I still really wanted that "printed on canvas" texture on the picture itself. Then, while looking around online one day, I found out that you can actually print from your computer onto tissue paper! Wall Art for Sienna's Room

21 ways of turning pallets into unique pieces of furniture Wood pallets have been around for decades as mechanisms for shipping and storing larger items (among other things). Recently, however, wooden pallets have become much more than a once-and-done packaging piece. They’ve become a useful resource in home décor and design. Used by beginner to professional DIYers in projects from wall coverings to large and small furniture pieces to home décor accessories, wood pallets can be disassembled into wood planks that can be used for any number of projects. The wood can be like new, rustic with patina, or somewhere in between.
Super Special Bananas Bananas are an awesome source of potassium and other vitamins, but they aren't everyone's favorite lunchtime treat. Inscribing the skins (without any markers or pens!) and magically pre-slicing them before packing them up alongside the peanut butter and jelly helps ensure that they'll get eaten, and that they'll make someone feel extra special. You'll Need. . .
