Before her death in 1989 Diana Vreeland was a noted magazine editor, taste maker, and fashion icon. During her time at Harpers Bazaar she wrote the very popular "Why Don't You?" column where she advised readers to do things that seemed out of the ordinary. For example, she once wrote, "Why don't you wash your blond child's hair in dead champagne, as they do in France." I figured that it would be fun to do a Dookyblog version of this, so here it goes: Why don't you... buy some stationary and send somebody a letter. That's right, with a postage stamp and an envelope. Why don't you...go outside and draw on the sidewalk with some chalk. Why don't you...find a new creative outlet or rediscover an old one. I'm going to dust off my old sewing machine. Why don't you... make a collage of everything you would like to accomplish by the end of the year. If you can see it, then you can achieve it. That's enough for now. If you did any of my suggestions I'd love to hear about the experience. Don't worry, I'll be doing them too. I always practice what I preach.
