Wow this is a really lovely story. 
 
"What I learned in all of this may help anyone who is marginalized: Tell your own story, and don’t rely on others to do it for you."
I made a music video to share my own story as a Muslim woman in America. In doing so, I was expected to share every other Muslim woman's story, too.

Very interesting story.  I have many stories about the prejudice my family endured because they came from Italy!  Sometimes takes many years for people to just "accept" everyone for who they are - Americans!  Thanks for sharing!!

Have you ever heard of Uppercase Magazine? It's "for the creative and curious" - which is pretty much the perfect tagline for my life so I pretty much want it right away. It's a (OMG) for real print magazine that comes to your doorstep...which secretly makes me even more excited about it :-)

From the editor
Though the content is based in graphic design, illustration and crafting as its starting points, with such a broad statement the articles can be quite eclectic. I think it is this curious bent that makes the magazine unique and hopefully surprising with each new issue.

Check it out

Tons of good ideas to do crafty things.  I always enjoyed looking at books like this!

I wonder why fashion sketches are done so dramatically? When translated to real life, the reality is so sad.
 
When they imagine clothes for #models , here's what actual women would have to look like. More images: http://u.pw/18jMI90 — +Adam Albright-Hanna  #fashion #anorexia

Share if these sketches break your heart.

I design. I sew. I make messes :)
Introduction
If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.  ~C.S. Lewis

Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got. ~Janis Joplin

It does not matter how slow you go so long as you don't stop.  ~wisdom of Confucius

Once a close friend gave me a priceless gift. She convinced me that my sanity is much more important than the subtle nuances that I adore. The subtle nuances are the essence of perfection. The subtle nuances trigger the “Ah” response. But a life spent seeking the subtle nuances leaves little time to enjoy the big picture. ~Sarah Ban Breathnach

We were ordering from the brunch menu and all of these things were amazing: chicken and waffles, french toast (OMG so good!), and the mini donuts melt in your mouth. The owner seems really nice and down to earth, too. The drinks were also really good. The bar even has a bunch of syrups on display that the bar makes themselves - cinnamon, apple & rosemary, hmmm can't remember the rest! So you can craft your own cocktail.

A very cool space tucked in a midst of warehouses. I've been told it gets super crowded during the day but I was there on a Monday at 6 so it wasn't too bad. I got the peppermint tea, but next time around, I'll have to try something more exciting (the tea was super yummy though :)

Yum! I had the "Minty Horse" - was really excellent. The place is super small, just a few two seater tables. The menu has a lot to choose from...fresh juices and smoothies, Raspados, Mexican Hot Chocolate, ect. Will totally be going back.

I did a mani/pedi so I had two people working on me the whole time I was there. They were efficient and very sweet ladies. They aren't the chatty type, so it was very nice and relaxing. Also, its super cheap! They also have a really great selection of OPI polish. Be aware, they accept credit but only cash for tips!

I've never been to this restaurant...but I get it delivered to me (via grubhub) maybe once a month - because the fish masala is AMAZING.
