Posters from the WPA

Library of Congress has a program called American Memory which digitizes many of their objects and makes them available online, similar to what I do at the University of Alabama. Today I found this section of it that consists of posters created during FDR's New Deal. I love the vintage look of these and I would like to try to figure out how to print them out and decorate my apartment with them!

Finished with Summer School!!

I have had an incredibly crazy last 6 months! After starting a new job in January, I had began a very busy sememster. I got a break from school for a few weeks in May, and then summer school started, which consisted of 9 hours of class a week and a week's worth of reading every other day, on top of 40 hours of work each week! I finished my final today, though, and have almost a 2 month break from school! Hooray! I hope during this time to get lots of reading and crafting done. I plan to try to update the blog more often with info about what I'm reading, making, cooking, and finding online.
