Cannes Report: Shailene Woodley, Reluctant Star - People - Eye With a hit TV show and a breakout film role as George Clooney’s teenage daughter in “The Descendants,” Shailene Woodley could be forgiven for whooping it up in Hollywood nightclubs. Instead, the 20-year-old is more likely to be found tending to her vegetable patch. “I think I was just born with an intense love affair with trees,” she laughs, curling up barefoot on a sofa on the rooftop terrace of the Hotel Martinez, her wooden Marni platform shoes discarded on the floor. As a former child actor, Woodley has more in common with the world’s Lindsay Lohans than would appear. Most people know her as Amy Juergens in the ABC Family drama “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.” RELATED STORY: Cannes Report: Ezra Miller's Crossing >> With another two seasons to go on her contract, Woodley is fitting movie shoots — such as the upcoming “The Spectacular Now” — around her busy TV filming schedule.

The Graphics Fairy - Crafts: How to Find the Original Source of an Image on Pinterest This is a neat little trick that my son taught me. I'm sure some of you probably already know about this, but in case you didn't I think you will find it to be super handy, particularly if you are a Pinterest user! More than a few times, I've clicked on a Pinterest Pin, in order to find the instructions to an awesome Craft Tutorial, only to find that the Pin went somewhere other than the original source. Step 1: Save the image that you want to find to your computer. Update: Apparently you don't have to save the image to your computer, you can just drag and drop, by having both windows open at the same time. Step 2: Go to Google and Click on "Images". Step 3: Open the Folder where you have stored the image that you want to find. Step 4: Drag the photo just under the Google Search Box. Step 5: Google will perform a search for the image. Easy Peasy!

Quick and easy homestead uses for Plastic Bottles (PET) In the not too distant past, you would buy milk, sodas, etc. in glass bottles which you would return to the store to be sterilized and used again. Now, with our disposable culture, plastic bottles have replaced this system and have consequently become one of the many banes of the landfills. We need to rectify this wasteful and eco-nomically expensive practice. The current popular solution to the problem is recycling.
