Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, died this weekend at age 82 and will forever be remembered as a legend, leaving his mark on a monumental event of the 20th century. The astronaut who took "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" changed history and the possibilities of the universe. Here are eight prints for astronomy enthusiasts and anyone inspired by this science great, as a reminder of exactly what can happen when you shoot for the moon.
You spent months agonizing over your child's name, so why not honor his moniker by tacking up those sweet sounds on your walls? A company called Nameflat creates personalized art for kid rooms that's modern and colorful, but youthful and unpretentious. Each 8-x-10-inch print costs $20 and is digitally printed on archival photo paper. The designs can be modified with your lil one's first name free of charge.
Reading has always been an important part of my children's lives and though my oldest is just learning to recognize select words, I can only hope she will develop a love of the written word.
This 8-x-10 Imagination print caught my eye because it adds a little hip edge to those so-called motivational posters parents in my generation put up.
The creator, Shelli Dorfe, believes art should be special so she only prints 200 or less of her cheery, cheeky, and colorful Studio Mela ("mela" means apple in Italian) designs. Check out her current collection below.
If you've got a mod tot with an eye for alphabet design, this poster from Made by Girl might be right up your lil one's alley.
The print comes in boy and girl versions that can be customized with your child’s name in your choice of colors.
Ranging from $50 to $130 depending on the size of the print, the poster is a fun addition to any child’s room, makes a great gift for new parents.
Going to an Ashtanga Yoga class can be pretty intimidating. There are tons of poses, it moves pretty fast, and everyone seems to know what they're doing. As if that wasn't hard enough, your instructor might be calling the poses by their Sanskrit names.
Don't get stressed out. Yoga is supposed to be relaxing, remember? Before going to a class it'll help to know the poses ahead of time. So doing a little research is a good thing - there are books to help you out. Or you can hang a poster on your bedroom wall and study the poses whenever you're bored. Like to practice at home? Then pop this DVD in the machine and follow along.
Fit's Tip: When I was first learning Ashtanga, I brought a waterproof study guide to take to class with me. It'll put your mind at ease and help you learn the order so you don't feel lost.
