CHAPEL HILL NEWS & VIEWS
If you want a Conservative Republican who cares about the issues and how they affect Georgians, vote for Michael Miller for Georgia State House District 66. As a lifelong resident of Douglas County, Michael Miller knows what issues are important to our community: Education: As a member of the Douglas County School Board, Mike knows that a quality education is important to both students and a competitive job market. Mike Miller will work to engage parents, educators, and employers in identifying the educational needs of our students. Together he will work to find real answers that will prepare students for academic excellence. Lower Taxes: As a small business owner himself, Miller will work hard to eliminate unneeded projects and waste to better manage tax dollars and reduce the size of the government. Job Creation: While small businesses provide jobs to over 90% of the American workforce, many are unable to operate successfully because of the taxes and regulations imposed upon them by the state and federal governments. Miller will be an advocate for small business owners to increase jobs and maintain job security for the citizens of District 66. The Second Amendment: Americans are guaranteed the right to defend and protect themselves and their families. Mike Miller believes in the rights of individuals to Keep and Bear Arms. He will fight against any measure that infringes upon the Second Amendment. Mike Miller currently serves on the Douglas County School Board where he has been a stalwart for fiscal responsibility and transparency. Mike is also a small business owner, serving as managing partner of the law firm of Miller and Hightower, P.C. in Douglasville. Mike is a graduate of the University of West Georgia with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics and received his Juris Doctorate from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. Mike is a lifelong resident of Douglasville and graduated from Alexander High School. Mike has years of dedicated service to his community in both the private and public sectors. His steady, conservative and principled leadership on the Douglas County School Board is what we have long needed from our representative at the state Capitol. Please vote for Mike Miller for State House District 66 in the July 31st Republican Primary. P A I D F O R BY T H E C O M M I T T E E T O E LE CT M I K E M I LLE R S T A T E H O U S E

The Conservative to ELIMINATE the Georgia Income Tax
CONSERVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO CREATE JOBS As our new State Representative, Bob Snelling will support eliminating Georgia’s income taxes and replacing them with a Georgia “Fair Tax,” similar to the Fair Tax Plan sponsored by Congressman John Linder. “My proposal would exempt any senior citizens who are residents of Georgia from paying any additional consumption tax; they’ve already paid their dues. “Eliminating our income taxes will bring major employers from across the county to relocate in Georgia–creating thousands of new jobs. Visitors, tourists, and illegal immigrants who currently pay nothing for state services would begin paying their share.” ~ Bob Snelling
• Create New Jobs • Illegal Immigrants and Tourists Would Finally Help Pay • Net Tax Relief for Georgians

Mill Town Music Hall great place to see a concert By Tim Collins, Publisher, Chapel Hill News & Views In May, Steven Curtis Chapman launched his summer tour right here in West Georgia at the new Mill Town Music Hall. Since he is one of my favorite artists I bought tickets and went to the show. For those of you who have not been to this venue yet, you should definitely plan on going. I loved the fact that it was only about 20 minutes from the time I left my home in western Douglas County until the time that I arrived, and there was no traffic to battle, since it is in Bremen, just off Exit 11. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The sound was great. Because it is not a huge concert hall, every seat is a good one. But the thing that stood out most to me was how far apart the rows are from each other. I could literally stretch my legs straight out in front of me and barely touch the row ahead of me. When someone had to get by me, I didn’t even have to stand up, and they could walk by me without turning sideways. When the concert was over, I was out of the door, in my car, and on I-20 in about five minutes, and we didn’t leave early. There are a number of good concerts coming up, including the Oak Ridge Boys in August. You can find the schedule and buy tickets at www.milltownmusichall.com.

The game does offer an Online Mode and when I played I did not experience any lag, but if you haven’t played this game before you may want to practice for a while before you head online as timing is very important. All in all for the price this game offers you a robust amount of characters and the learning curve isn’t too hard. This game gets a 3 out of 5.

Photography Tip of the Month Outdoor Portraits that Shine. One of the great hidden features on digital cameras is the fill flash or flash on mode. By taking control of the flash so it goes on when you want it to, not when the camera deems it appropriate, youâ€™ve just taken an important step toward capturing great outdoor portraits. In flash on mode, the camera exposes for the background first, then adds just enough flash to illuminate your portrait subject. The result is a professional looking picture.

Spring and Summer to keep shoes from wearing out, sleeping with windows opened and doors unlocked…. A gentle smile spread slowly across the thin woman’s face and stayed there, as she said, “It was a good life.” The heavy-set woman chuckled. “Yes. But I didn’t know it at the time!” As soon as she said that, I remembered reading these words of another woman: “What a wonderful life I’ve had! I only wish I’d realized it sooner.” How true! Why, each of us would be so happy if only we’d savor the current moments of our lives. Someday, like the two elderly ladies, each of us will look back on this time in our life—with its challenges and stresses—and long for it again. But, we won’t get to re-live it. We’ll only be able to look back on it and wish we had realized the preciousness of people and places

11 Car-Care Tips That Save Gas By Lucy Lazarony, bankrate.com

waste of money. That pricey premium fuel won’t boost your car’s fuel economy or performance in the least, so skip it. If you’re not sure what grade of fuel works best for your car, open up your owner’s manual and take a look. As long as your engine doesn’t knock or ping when you fuel up with regular unleaded, you’re good to drive on this much cheaper gas. Passing on pricey premium gasoline could save you hundreds of dollars a year. Don’t top off. Don’t bother topping off when filling your car’s gas tank. Any additional gas is just going to slop around or seep out. Why waste your money paying for gas your car won’t use? Stop pumping at the first indication that your tank is full when the automatic nozzle clicks off. Tighten up that gas cap. Gas will evaporate from your car’s gas tank if it has an escape. Loose, missing or damaged gas caps cause 147 million gallons of gas to evaporate each year, according to the Car Care Council. So be sure to tighten up that gas cap each time you fuel up your car. Go for the shade. The hot summer sun that makes the inside of your
Use your garage for your car. Got a garage? Clear it out and make room for your car. Parking in your garage will help your car stay warm in winter and cool in summer, and you won’t have to depend as much on your gas-guzzling air-conditioning or defroster when you drive. Check your tire pressure once a month. Buy a digital gauge and keep it in your glove box. Compare the pressure in your tires with the recommended pressure listed in your owner’s manual and on the placard in your car door. Then inflate your tires as needed. Be sure to check tire pressure when your tires are cold. A good time is early in the morning after your car’s been idle overnight. Keep your engine in tune. Fixing a car that is out of tune or has failed an emissions test can boost gas mileage by about 4 percent. So be sure to give your car regular tune-ups. You’ll also want to watch out for worn spark plugs. A misfiring spark plug can reduce a car’s fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent. Replace air filters. Keep a close eye on your engine’s air filter. When the engine air filter clogs with dirt, dust and bugs, it causes your engine

The Family Connection Memory Keeping
By Kerry Patuka, a degreed and certified educator, licensed minister and founder of Drive 5 Ministries, a consulting, speaking and training ministry for churches and children’s ministry. firstname.lastname@example.org
Moms-to-be and new moms are surrounded with ideas and reminders on how to preserve and cherish their child’s first years. Baby books, photos taken at the hospital, preservation box-
es for a dedication / christening / baptism outfit, envelopes for the first hair cut, containers for the first lost tooth and more. Often as the child ages or as the family adds new members, the tradition of keeping memories fades into the background. It’s completely understandable, as our families expand and as our children get older, we all get busier. To many people, memory keeping may not seem very important, but I value it. I often think of Luke 2:19. Mary and Joseph are in the stable and baby Jesus has been born. The shepherds have just finished recounting the story of the angels in the field and “all who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.” Mary couldn’t take a photo, write a blog or make a scrapbook, but she held those memories close in her thoughts. Sometimes I wonder what Mary would do today.
Most people probably think about scrapbooking when they think of memory keeping. I love to scrapbook, but there are lots of other ways to preserve memories: 1. Write a letter to your child each year on his birthday, at the end of the school year or at Christmas. Write about the year and share your love and dreams for him. Keep these in a safe place until he is older. 2. Collect things from your travels. Items such as pins, pencils or patches can almost always be found to commemorate just about any place you visit. Start a collection of these and gather them in a display or box. 3. Keep their t-shirts from sports, camps, scouts, church, vacations, etc and turn them into a t-shirt blanket. There are quite a few companies that do this now or you can figure out online how to make one yourself. 4. Create a school album or box for each year with art, report cards, samples of work, certificates and more. If you make an album, take pictures of items too big or bulky and use the photo instead. 5. Create a place to display artwork. Frame pieces that are really special to you or your child or select one piece to frame each year. 6. Label and organize videos you take. Whether you film randomly or you interview your child each year, keep track of what is on each one. 7. Keep a special box or basket to collect cards your family receives. 8. Blog or journal about your life. Write about the ordinary and the special days. Record both the ups and downs. 9. Store special outfits, toys, room décor or other items that you think might be appreciated when she is an adult or a parent. My mom kept a small throw rug from my nursery that I used it in my son’s nursery and now I have it for him someday. I have several special toys and outfits from my childhood and I share these memories with my son. I love looking through our scrapbooks, either alone or with my family. It’s fun to page through my son’s patch book with him and reminisce about where we got each one and what happened on that trip or that day. I smile when he brings me an item he has outgrown and asks me if I’ll keep it for when he has kids. Hopefully, he’ll remain a memory keeper his whole life. Memory keeping is for ourselves, our families and future generations. It allows us to re-live the special moments, to remind our families of how much we love them and it preserves our family history to those who come after us.

Nail Care Pointers
By Jeanne Grace Curtis, Nails Your Way, 770.949.3113, nailsyourway.com
Sandal Season is Here
Now that sandal season is here it is important to beautify your feet with a relaxing pedicure. Pedicures treat both the toenails and the skin on the feet. If you suffer from corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, fungus, athlete’s foot, or diseases such as diabetes or arthritis then regular pedicures can help to keep your feet healthy. The results of an online women’s shoe survey by the American
Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons show there are a lot of feet out there in dire need of attention and pampering. Forty-three million Americans say their feet hurt and that they have some kind of problem with their feet. Just like your face, your nose, your hair, or your fingers; your feet are different from everyone else’s. Wearing the wrong size, style and shape of shoes can cause numerous foot problems but ingrown toenails are the most common. Living with the pain of ingrown toenails can lead to serious problems if not taken care of correctly. Ingrown nails are nails whose corners dig painfully into the soft tissue of the nail grooves, often leading to irritation, redness, and swelling. Usually, toenails grow straight out, but sometimes, one or both corners curve and grow into the flesh. The big toe is usually the victim of this condition, but other toes can also become ingrown. The shape of the nail is usually inherited, but it is commonly influenced by trauma and/or shoe pressure. Tight footwear will increase pressure between the skin in the nail fold and nail, increasing the risk of ingrown nails. The skin on the feet is particularly vulnerable to dryness. As we age, oil-producing glands slow down production, causing skin to become thin and dry. Not only does dry skin make the feet look older, it also increases the chances of developing a foot infection. It is important to keep the feet moisturized with a thick rich lotion daily. A knowledgeable licensed pedicurist will use scrubs and foot files to gently exfoliate the dry skin on the heels and bottom of the feet as well as alpha-hydroxy cuticle remover rather than cutting or nipping delicate skin. The improper practice of nipping or cutting the cuticles will make them grow back quicker and thicker. Do not allow your pedicurist to nip or cut your cuticles or calluses. Georgia has outlawed the dangerous credo-cutting implement. Do not allow a nail tech to cut your delicate foot tissue with a credo-cutting implement, it can cause bleeding and/or infection. Foot and leg massage is an important part of any pedicure experience because it improves blood circulation. Optimal blood circulation helps to prevent skin and nail problems in the feet. Monthly pedicures can dramatically soften and heal callusprone feet and will help prevent fungal infections. Be sure to choose a salon that follows state guidelines for safe footbath cleansing and disinfecting procedures. A little time and attention through monthly pedicures will not only keep your feet looking and feeling good but will also provide health benefits such as skin renewal, reduced stress and improved circulation. So go pedicure shopping today and enjoy sandal season.

the incorporating Omega 3’s into a well-rounded diet. The discussion fat is very complex and often confusing. One way to describe it is to picture it as a family tree. At the top, there are two different families of fat—saturated fat and unsaturated fat. Saturated fat (butter is one example) is solid at room temperature. Unsaturated fat (like olive oil) is liquid at room temperature. The family of unsaturated fat includes branches: monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat. In the polyunsaturated fat family, you’ll find omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids, and it is the omega-3 family that has been making headlines in the nutrition world.
Mega Health Benefits Extensive research indicates that omega-3 fats reduce inflammation, helping to prevent inflammatory diseases like heart disease and arthritis. In addition to warding off inflammation, omega-3’s are also essential to the brain, impacting behavior and cognitive function, and are especially necessary during fetal development. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMM), omega-3’s may also: • Improve artery health by helping to reduce plaque buildup and blood clots in arteries that lead to the brain. • Improve cholesterol by lowering triglycerides and elevating HDL (good cholesterol) levels. These benefits come primarily from DHA and EPA. Learn more about fats that fight cholesterol. • Improve joint health by reducing joint tenderness and stiffness associated with arthritis and osteoarthritis. • Improve bone health by positively impacting the body’s calcium levels, reducing the incidence of bone loss. • Improve mental health by helping to insulate nerve cells in the brain, allowing these nerve cells to better communicate with one another. People who are deficient in omega-3’s may suffer from depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and ADHD. • Improve skin health by helping to alleviate symptoms related to skin disorders like acne and psoriasis. • Improve bowel health by reducing inflammation of the bowels, helping alleviate symptoms of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. • Improve lung health by reducing inflammation in diseases like asthma. • Improve menstrual health by reducing the pain associated with PMS and menstruation.

Your Health What’s Healing You?
By Dr. Awais Butt, Planet Chiropractic, 2971 Fairburn Road, 770.783.1799, myplanetchiro.com, email@example.com Every system in the body plays a role in keeping us healthy and alive. We’ve got a system to pump our blood, a system to move us about, and a system to take in and digest food. We have a system for every bodily need, including the master control system (your central nerve system: the brain and spinal cord) which assimilates all the
info and issues commands for all the other systems to follow. The cool thing about all these systems (even master control) is that you can take an anatomy book and point with your finger to the main components which make up each system. Our IMMUNE system is different, however. Our immune system is what keeps us healthy and adapting to various life circumstances. But it isn’t found all in one place. There are many different organs and tissues that play a part in regulating our ‘immunity’ and maintaining our ability to stay healthy. The spleen, the liver, the lymph nodes, the white blood cells, and the skin are just a few of the different good guys we have working for us. The better these parts all work together, the higher potential we have to stay healthy. “The nerve fibers go to all the body parts, including every organ of the immune system. We found that if we took the nerves away from either the spleen or the lymph nodes, it virtually stopped immune response in its tracks,” said David Foelten, M.D., PhD, Researcher University of Rochester School of Medicine Ronald Pero, PhD., NYU Medical Research Department says, “The amazing thing was that at the end of the study we found that people who had been under chiropractic care for at least five years were found to have immune systems that were 200% stronger than people who had not been under chiropractic care and immune systems that were 400% stronger than those in cancer patients.” So next time you’re fighting off food poisoning or the common cold, thank your IMMUNE system for doing what it needs to do to keep you alive and healthy.
Bliss Hair Salon & Day Spa celebrates 5 years Bliss Hair Salon & Day Spa has reached a milestone in business. On July 3, 2007 an optimistic staff of six opened the doors to their newly built salon and spa at 4040 Chapel Hill Road. In the last five years, Bliss has immersed itself into the Chapel Hill community.
Douglasville residents, John
and Leanne Lee knew they wanted to open a business near their home, and when they saw a new shopping center break ground on Chapel Hill Road less than a mile from their neighborhood, they knew that would be the home of their start-up salon and spa. The Lee’s consider their first couple of years in business to be a bit rocky. The economic downturn that began in 2008 slowed business growth, the flood in September 2009 made things even worse by damaging every major road leading to their facility, and their shopping center got off to a wobbly start by losing 10 new businesses in two years, but in 2010 the business hit its stride and hasn’t looked back. Today Bliss is enjoying a thriving clientele, and employs a staff of 17. The owners attribute their open doors to determination, a loyal and caring staff, and a genuine desire to serve others. With these characteristics, it looks like a bright future for Bliss.

Taking the sting out of insect allergies By Grace Chiang, M.D., WellStar Medical Group, Allergy and Asthma. Dr. Chiang is board certified in allergy/immunology and pediatrics. 770.333.2027, www.wellstar.org/allergy During summer, you may notice an increase in the number of insects buzzing around outside. People with an allergy to stinging insects will want to take extra precautions this time of year. “For most people, getting stung results in temporary pain, redness and swelling at the site of the sting,” said Dr. Grace Chiang, an allergy and asthma specialist with WellStar Medical Group Allergy and Asthma. “However, for those with allergies to insect stings, it can result in a sudden, severe reaction called anaphylaxis. This may be fatal if not treated immediately.” Symptoms of anaphylaxis to watch for include: itching and hives over large areas of the body, separate or away from the site of the sting; swelling in the throat or tongue; difficulty breathing; dizziness; stomach cramps; nausea and diarrhea. If you suffer from a stinging insect allergy, you should take extra precautions to avoid being stung.
Because a severe and sometimes fatal reaction can occur, it is important to know what common stinging insects look like. The most common stinging insects in the United States include: • Yellow jackets – black with yellow markings, found in various climates • Honeybees – a round, fuzzy body covered with dark brown and yellow markings • Paper wasps – slender, elongated bodies that are black, brown or red and have yellow markings • Hornets – black or brown with white, orange or yellow markings and are larger than yellow jackets • Fire ants – reddish-brown ants living in large mounds It is also critical for anyone with allergies to insect stings to take precautions to avoid a potentially dangerous reaction. Dr. Chiang recommends the following tips to avoid being stung: • Avoid the “territory” of the stinging insect’s nest. These insects are most likely to sting if their homes are disturbed. • Remain calm, quiet and slowly move away from stinging insects. • Avoid brightly colored clothing and perfume outdoors that may attract
Unfortunately, most people are not aware they are allergic to insect stings until after experiencing a reaction. An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system overreacts to the insect venom. When this happens, an allergic person’s body produces an allergic substance called Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibody, which reacts with the venom. This triggers the release of histamine

Making Vacation Fun Summer has arrived and with it comes thoughts of “fun in the sun”; however, nothing spoils that fun as quickly as arriving at the picnic, or vacation spot and realizing you forgot something really important (like certain medicines, for example). Proper planning can make all the difference. Here are a few tips to get you started: • Create a checklist and timeline to keep you on track and organized. Create using a computer, smart phone or small tablet. • Decide on the things you “must” take like meds, makeup, special hair supplies, and anything needed to entertain the kids. • If you travel often, buy duplicates of things like deodorant, razors, hairspray and toothpaste and leave them packed in your overnight bag. • Don’t forget to throw in a dirty clothes “bag”. You can buy a mesh bag or use an old pillowcase tied with a shoe string. • Don’t pack too much stuff. We all do this; however, the rising cost of extra luggage is causing us to re-think the way we pack. If you find yourself saying “I might need this”, that is a clue that you probably won’t - so leave it at home. • Coordinate your clothing so you can eliminate the need for extra accessories. One way to do this is to choose a couple of colors, like black and white or chocolate brown and pink, and mix and match the way you wear them. • Don’t forget to take a pair of comfortable walking shoes. Nothing can ruin a good vacation like aching feet. • Avoid wrinkles by placing tissue paper between each item. I haven’t found any way to completely avoid wrinkles; however, this seems to work fairly well. Packing clothes tightly so they don’t have a lot of room to move around also helps. You might also want to include a wrinkle-releasing spray. • Use space-saving bags (the kind you vacuum the air out of). I have to admit I “stole” this idea from a fellow organizer. I use these bags a lot when working with clients, but had never though about how helpful they would be when packing for vacation. After all, why pay for extra luggage when you can “shrink it” and make it all fit in one? For those picnics and short trips close to home use a wicker basket or other type storage container and keep supplies like bug spray, extra towels, and sunscreen in one location making it easier to create memories on the “spur of the moment”. No matter where your travels take you… close to home or far away, have a wonderful summer!

Landscaping By Kate Wright, who owns Bloom’n Gardens Landscape. She is a degreed Botanist, Certified Arborist, and Certified Pesticide Applicator, & Georgia Certified Landscape Professional, www. bloomngardens.com • 404.314.1474 The other day I was working in my vegetable garden and I wondered how many of you planted a vegetable garden this year. With the economy still under the weather, I bet there are a lot more of you than ever. Typically, in times of distress, food prices go up and more of us try our hand at the old fashion “Victory Gardens” to help stretch our dollars. If you planted your garden in the later part of April you probably are already reaping its rewards in the form of zucchini, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Soon I bet you will be enjoying a bounty of peppers, but in our climate there is more to enjoy from our veggie patch. By living here in the south, we are fortunate to be able to grow vegetable for almost the entire year. If you have not already gotten exhausted by all the work involved in keeping a vegetable patch, you might like to know that August is the time to get many of your cooler season veggies in the ground. Cool season vegetables thrive in cooler temperatures and shorter days. I know it’s hard to believe but those cooler days are just around the corner. Probably the most common fall vegetables are in the leafy category. Lettuce, spinach, mustard, Swiss chard, kale and collards probably cover the bulk of the leafy type you will want to plant. If you provide row covers you can extend the growing season well into the fall. Other vegetables worth planting for fall include broccoli, brussel sprouts, turnips, cauliflower, and cabbage. These are known as cole crops. If you have the space, start them from seed in the garden or wait until an area is free and use transplants. Another vegetable to plant, if you like them, is spring radishes. Don’t worry about the spring tag, they will do just fine in the fall garden. They do not need much time to grow, so don’t worry about doing transplants, seeding is fine. One of my favorites is English peas, they will produce quite well in cooler temperatures. If you love to cook with garlic, now is the best time to get a bed of garlic going in your garden. It won’t be ready to harvest until next year, but you will be thankful that you planted as it was $.79 per bulb the other day at Kroger. Onions are also planted in the fall for harvest in the spring. Making sure you have room for these two plants will drastically reduce your overall grocery bill in the future. With all the variety available, a fall vegetable garden should be on the radar for everyone. Even if you do not have an official garden space, plant amongst your perennials or in your flower beds. In fact, one other noteworthy fall veggie is the pansy. The flowers make wonderful additions to a salad.

Decorating Tips Art of Picture Hanging By Karen Hartley, Karen Hartley Interiors, 770.459.9096, www.karenhartleyinteriors.com If the Atlanta Symphony’s 2012 Decorator Showhouse illustrates trends, the concept of hanging art in groupings and “collages” is becoming part of today’s trend. This home was full of walls of fine art! Every room had interesting artwork and much was hung in groupings. The stairwells were full of unusual displays. Rarely was one piece hanging
alone! By the way, I thought this Showhouse was one of the best in years! It was beautifully decorated and felt very livable. Even if your pocketbook won’t allow for fine art, you can use this technique to expand artistic interest in your own home. The type of artwork you choose will depend on your personal preferences and your budget. You could use small prints, needlework, architectural pieces, metal, and/or original artwork. Of course, the more valuable the piece, the more important its place should be. The style and colors in the artwork will have the best effect if they are combined with furnishings that compliment and coordinate with the chosen pieces. Hanging collections can be challenging! First you need to plan it out. As with so many things, scale plays a big part. A large, dramatic picture often looks best when displayed independently. It serves as a focal point in a room because the eye is drawn directly to it. Smaller pictures become more effective when grouped together rather than being scattered around the room. Whether you are hanging a single piece or a grouping, the pieces should occupy approximately 75% of the wall space. This rule of thumb will help you judge whether a piece is the right size for a given space. If it isn’t, then consider adding something else with it. For example, add candle scones on each side or add other art pieces with it. Always remember to hang your pictures at the height they will best be viewed. Typically, we hang are so that the center of the picture is at eye level. Allow 4” to 8”of space between a furniture piece and the bottom of the frame. If you are hanging art over a table or flat surface, you may want to consider the items or accessories on the table and hang the art above those. Also, a lamp on the table will typically sit to one side of the art and not block the picture. You may want to plan the lamp as part of the overall composition. Wall collections are not limited to artwork. You can combine florals, small shelves or brackets with something interesting to rest on it, architectural items, and more! Use your own imagination. If you are hanging a group of pictures, the easiest way to get the placement correct is to use a large sheet of paper to plan the layout. I like to use that brown package paper. Cut the paper the size of the space. If the space is taller than the paper is wide, tape sheets together. Lay the paper on the floor and place the pictures on the paper. Decide the best arrangement. Remember to achieve balance in the composition. Establish a line either at the top or in the center and use it as a guide on placing your pictures. Once you have an arrangement you like, trace around each frame on piece on the paper with a pencil. You can then turn the artwork over and mark where the hooks will need to go. If you have a number of pieces, you may want to number them on the back and on the paper so you will get each piece in the right place. Now, tape the paper on the wall, making sure to get it straight, and make a final evaluation of your placement. If everything looks good, then place the hooks in the wall where you marked them on the paper. Carefully remove the paper, leaving the hooks in place on the wall, and hang you pictures.
