My name is Charmaine, and I am an ASL nerd. Wacky HEARING person wanting to know all there is about American Sign Language, Deaf Culture, and everything in between. I also love getting submissions with people signing, and welcome questions about The blog, Deaf Culture and Sign Language

Closed Captioning

Since the year 1972, closed captioning has proven to be very essential in the Deaf community. It translates audio on TVs into words at the bottom of the screen. Because of this service Deaf people can enjoy the convenience of TV without the use of an interpreter.

Video Phones

Developed in the early 2000s, Video phones give Deaf people the ability to see and communicate with each other without having to be in the same room or use a service to relay information. Being able to see one another on the screen and use sign language without any barriers makes communication easier and therefore more frequent for Deaf people.

Craft These Easy Paper Bows in Just a Few Minutes

Image via: stranamasterov  ,  useful diy 
Crafting origami bows can be sometimes quite time consuming and difficult. But not now as these bows are easy to make and as beautiful in look as any other origami bows. To make these easy peasy bows first fold a square piece of colored paper along the two diagonals so that you get four triangles. Start cutting along the lines of the lower triangle but don’t cut it till the centre of the square. Mark lines in the upper triangle as shown. Bring the upper triangle down. Cut along the lines marked on it. Now you will see two triangles at both the sides with two ribbons in the middle. Bring the corners of both the triangles towards the centre so that they meet and overlap each other and staple them to the centre of the bow. Embellish the centre with anything that you like and voila!

Lash Conditioning Serum | Henry Happened
I’ll be honest, I didn’t know there was such a thing as eyelash conditioning serum! But then again, I’m a bit of a makeup novice. After a bit of research, I discovered two things: eyelash serum is great for reducing breakages and increasing lash length. And two, eyelash serum can be ridiculously expensive (especially if they put ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ in the name!). This eyelash serum only has two ingredients in it, and that’s about as simple and natural as you can get. So if you’re looking to increase the length and health of your eye-batters, mix this up and get to using it today!
