lessons from Diana Vreeland

1. Never take self-portraits on a Saturday morning when you don't feel like putting on eye makeup.

2. Photograph FO's (handknit "finished objects") outside, if you want to actually be able to see the clothes, and so what if you have to fiddle with the tripod when the temperature barely hovers above freezing?

3. Find another place to store some of said handknits so that your sweaters all don't end up oddly creased from being stuffed inside a too-small bureau drawer. (And stand up straight!)

4. Stop eating so much dairy and dark chocolate, even if they are winter mood enhancers.

5. Since you refuse to smoke as a weight-loss measure, at least keep your fingers busy with more knitting.

6. If the automatic self-timer photos are underexposed and grainy, do overemphasize flaws by way of Poladroid.

7. Trust your instincts, why don't you?
