My Future Musician

My daughter was assigned as the instrumentalist for their presentation and though she’s excited about it she suddenly felt bad because just recently her guitar has broken into two pieces. Someone used it and didn’t place it on its case so when sudden gusts of wind seep through the curtains her guitar fell to the ground. Of course she was devastated to see her favorite music instrument in broken form and even if her daddy repaired it already it was never the same as before. 

She was just lucky that her cousin has a spare guitar to lend her and told her she can use it as long as she want because she’s too busy to play. Now Gen is happy to have a guitar once again which she can use to practice her musical pieces and to use in their school performance. Her happiness prompted her to browse online for new acoustic guitar and to search for some accessories also like music books, pick and gc. She’s a very interested promising instrumentalist and from the looks of it she’s going to be a very good musician. I hope she can use it in our church’ praise and worship.

The Blessing of Being a Mother


Source: google.com via Race on Pinterest


Ah the blessings of being a Mom, I really can't count them all in my hands because it would take me another set.  It's in the little things that I do for my kids that I find happiness.  At times I can't find a time to even comb my hair or find a quiet time to do my personal things because all of it are occupied by the things that I need to do for the little ones.  Or forget to think of my own whims when I find something that I know they will like if I buy, well that's being a Mom and I didn't actually realized that earlier.  

Now as I'm having some moments to think of my life I felt the wave of contentment splashing down on me filling me up with so much love I can't control and I can't explain.  This is probably what my Mom always feels when she takes care of us, when she's cooking a special dinner for us or when she's taking care of her grandkids.  Well God has blessed us Moms with wonderful things that money can't buy and I'm so thankful that I'm a mother.

Pallete Moon-Shaped Baby Cradle

 Source:  inthralld.com via Race on Pinterest

The baby here looks so warm and comfortable in this home-made moon-shaped baby cradle made out of pallettes.  The shape and the wood did it all.  The shape made it possible to swing it when necessary and the pallette provides comfortable material for it.  No one even me would think that it's going to be nice using pallettes for cradle but it's very functional from the look of it.
Sometimes we just have to be creative with making some improvement in our house or adding some useful furniture like this one.  Our imaginative ideas should work well with the things present in our house like some left-over pallettes or old things that can be recycled to bring out some nice and useful furniture.

Floating Bed, Safe or Not?

Source: ubergizmo.com via Race on Pinterest

Love this beautiful floating bed with pretty lace designs all around it, pretty unique! 

I've been used to seeing the usual bed for kids with cute beddings and soft pillows all around but it's usually placed beside the wall for safety purposes. Well even I did that when my girls were still young. I prefer to place their beds beside the wall so it will add up as extra support when they suddenly stand up after waking. Now seeing this floating bed made me realize that not all people fears falling off the bed.  

Anyway we all have our sleeping habits and some I should say are careful enough not to slide or fall when sleeping.  I'm talking about adults as I really can't imagine kids sleeping on this floating bed, maybe if they have companion who will watch over them while they sleep.  Trust my mother instinct to always think that something might happen if kids are allowed to be in a not-so-safe position.

Pallets Sun Deck




Have you ever imagined making full use of your old pallets? Well it's time to use your creativity in making some nice furniture or beautiful areas in your backyard.  I've always love to relax from the stress of my work and lounging in one of chairs above the sun deck pallets here is a welcome thought.  
Making a nice comfortable and sturdy sun deck out of pallets is such a creative idea and affordable as well.  You don't have to spend a lot to create  a relaxing area in your garden or in other areas outside your house.  It would be a pleasure reading my favorite book here or just enjoy the time talking to my husband and the kids.  Such a nice thought.

Revamping Walls with New Wholesale Poster Frames


When you have lived in your home for quite some time, you might feel the need to change things up a bit. The same d├ęcor and furniture for years can start looking drab. As renovating and redecorating might be too expensive for some, you have to think of ways to perk things up without breaking your budget. A good tip would be to revamp your walls with new wholesale poster frames. You can get these online or at your local hardware or furniture stores. Since you are getting them on a wholesale basis, you are likely to shave off some bucks on your budget. 

Unless your wallpaper is tattered or your paint is chipped in one place too many, you do not have to do anything more than a good cleaning on your walls to prepare your “canvas” for your posters. You simply have to think of what you want to put on your walls. You do not even have to do all your walls as a roomful of frames can be quite overwhelming. Think of a theme and then choose your prints and the frames that complement them. It’s nice to have frames of the same type and finish to unify the look of various prints. A wall of family pictures can look less cluttered when they are in similar frames.

There are a lot of options for you to choose from once you have decided on the look you want. You can achieve an antique feel with intricate gold frames with sepia prints of pictures of your great grandparents. Your wall can serve as the canvas for your family tree, keeping the legacy and stories of those before you alive. A more contemporary look, on the other hand, can be achieved with solid colored metal frames with pictures of your family, highlighting fun time shared together and places that you have visited.

You do not have to be confined to framing photographs. You can choose to frame pastel paintings of blooms for a floral themed wall. Or, you can go minimalist with clear acrylic frames and pen and ink drawings from your local gallery. Using your walls as your canvas for whatever you want to showcase in your home can breathe new life into your home. Revamping your walls with framed prints is a practical way of redecorating your home. At the same time, it’s a good way to remind you of what you hold dear.

Why Repair Your Door?


A broken door can be a security concern whether you live in an apartment building or in a home. If a door does not properly latch, anyone can enter the building without needing a key or any other type of authorization to enter. Therefore, it is critical that a property owner talks to a door repair Scarborough expert as soon as he or she notices an issue with his or her doors. 

If a door has a crack in it, that crack should be fixed for many reasons. First, it could allow drafts in, which would keep the interior too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. It could also allow bugs or rodents to get in and out of the property if the crack is large enough. Another reason to get the crack fixed is that it could make a property look cheap and not cared for. 

A door repair Brampton expert will be able to visit your property, review the extent of the damage and make repairs as needed. If the door needs to be replaced entirely, a repairman can be called to replace the old door and install the new door. While this can be done by the property owner, it may be easier and faster to have an expert do it for the owner.

Residential Contracting Options In Alberta


The roof of a home should be inspected and serviced sometimes in order to prevent major problems from developing. For example, leaks account for the number one problem in all residential and commercial roofs. In Canada, winters can get quite harsh and cold and rooftops surely take a lot of wear and tear from heavy precipitation. Snow and ice can slowly penetrate through traditional shingle patches. Leaks may be noticed when the snow begins to melt or when heavy rain falls down. Leaky rooftops often lead to bubbles and patches that form in the ceilings. 

Homeowners may notice moist spots in the ceilings that seem to grow in size after heavy precipitation. Excessive moisture in the attic or rooftop can also lead to the growth of mold even during the winter and spring seasons. Roofing contractors Calgary can help homeowners in the province of Alberta to deal with roof leaks and other major problems.

Exploring roofing services by Tony William and other contractors is an example of seeking help for roof problems in homes and businesses.

Using Stone Tiles


Stone tiles are a way to add beauty to the home whether it's inside or outside. Using natural stone tiles from AmericanCarpetInc.com and other companies not only gives and elegant look but the tiles can bring you a little closer to nature instead of using carpet or laminate. Several types of stones exist for the home including granite, marble and sandstone. Granite is commonly used on countertops. Marble is ideal for flooring, especially in the bathroom. Stair cases are often made of marble as well as some fireplaces. Marble scratches easily, so granite is the material that many choose for the kitchen. 

One of the things that you can use to create beautiful displays is sandstone. The material is low maintenance and doesn't scratch easily. It is very durable for use on patios and paths that are in gardens. Stone tiles feature a variety of colors. This makes it easy to give a unique look to any project. Stones are also being used to give indoor spaces an edgy look that is bold. They are being used on walls to highlight certain areas and as separators in rooms that are large. Lighter colors can add warmth to rooms like the den or kitchen.
