"This was taken backstage at the Almeida theatre in 1989, as part of a personal project I was doing on dressing rooms. Tilda [Swinton] was working almost exclusively with Derek Jarman at the time...Tilda was only lit by a grubby little bulb, so it's fortunate it came out how it did. She was lost in her thoughts – a lot was going on in her life at the time – so she didn't notice me until I took the first shot."  -Simon Annand by pam

The tulip petals were created with the Owl Punch and and the leaves with a large Circle Punch.  I used the 1-3/4" circle but you could use the larger 2-1/2". The egg is punched with the Extra-Large Oval Punch and the peep is the body of the Bird Builder Punch.  And I almost forgot, The Scallop Edge Border Punch was used for the grass. by Kirsten Zimmermann

I fought with my weight identity for years. There was a time when I thought granola bars and green tea was enough to live on. There was a time when I would spend 2 hours every night before bed doing an intense workout. There was a time when I was lucky to weigh 90lbs soaking wet. I'm happy with my body now. It took years and there are still times when I struggle with thinking that I'm overweight. But I never want to go back to where I was. by angela

When I first opened it I thought it smelled like nature. This definitely does not have artificial fragrances. It has a natural citrus type scent and when you put it on your skin it's light. I like it. The oil is easy to rub in and my skin feels moisturized. I use it after a shower and in the morning. I think if I use days before get tanned it'll work even better. It was cloudy so I was not sure I could get tanned, but I was wrong. I got tan even better than a sunny day at the beach. by joyce

Our main priority was a fun, festive event where guests could really let their hair down. We always used to laugh at the dress codes for events when we lived in New York, so we thought it would be fun to tell people to dress “fiesta chic,” which we defined as something bright that one could have fun in. Everyone took it seriously and when put together, it was amazing! by rebecca2

'Cathedral Sunset' - by William McIntosh: "Realizing that all of the color and reflections were going to be on the other side, I thought about it for 2 minutes, and then waded in through water that was about 3 feet deep in order to set up my shot on the opposite side. I thought I might lose a couple of toes from frostbite as the water was FREEZING. Just before we lost the sun, the area above the Cathedral Rocks lit up and I spent another 15 minutes shooting while not being able to feel my toes". by roxie

I just did this today. Found here on Pinterest a while back and thought what a neat idea since we use our pool almost everyday in the warmer months.  Just buy a shower rod, this one is a tension one and then I used the hooks to hang the curtain on, as hooks for the wet suits and towels instead. by Vonda 24

VegaStar Carpentier of Paris, France, took the picture on May 5th.    The moonlight was so intense in Veszprem, Hungary, "the birds started singing because they thought it was morning," reports Monika Landy-Gyebnar. "I went out at 2 AM in almost daylight conditions. The landscape was visible in full color, the sky was vivid blue and only the brightest stars were visible. The perigee Moon lit the world with its full brightness." by tiquis-miquis
