Loft Playroom for Two Bedrooms

I love seeing home designs that shows great creativity and economy in saving space and money.  Since modern homes now don't have much space for all the things you want to put in your house this loft playroom for the kids' bedrooms is really a smart idea.  This way both the kids can enjoy the playroom anytime. This loft playroom is accessible from two children's bedrooms making it very convenient for the boys staying in the adjacent rooms.  I really love this wise idea and this is perfect for family with two kids or more.  This can also be a good chance for the kids to have their playing and bonding moments.

The Blessing of Being a Mother

Source: 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.


Ways to Prepare to Become a Contractor

Some people who eventually become home builders start out building small projects as a hobby. Perhaps it is the back porch, or a wheelchair ramp or a tree house in the back yard. When these projects are scaled to something larger that affects the construction of a house, however, there are other considerations. Because municipalities and cities require compliance with licensing, permits and building codes, it is vital to get more training to do this larger work. Many immediately find a way to encourage themselves through contractor license exam prep. There are three main ways to pursue this preparation.

Online Courses
Web-based classes are a popular way for people to prepare for the exam. Many do not live in a city or town that offers courses locally. Those who do many find it difficult to carve out a segment of time to dedicate themselves to studying outside of their own homes. Online courses are a natural way to ensure they find others who may be taking the same journey and adequately study the information. Courses often are either self-paced or operate through a portal with other participants.

Local College or Learning Center
Some colleges and universities capitalize on exam prep by partnering with organizations who offer the exams and making course material accessible for local residents. Often, they offer instructor-led courses or tutoring at local learning centers. Typically, these courses have the same learning aids as those taken online, but a live person is available to answer questions or assist with understand all the learning material. This is especially beneficial for those who know they are not likely to commit to the material if left to do it on their own.

Practice Exams
Some who prepare for licensing exams are more independent learners and choose to absorb the information on their own before taking the exam. Typically, these people are fast learners and benefit from practice exams. They are able to assess weaker knowledge areas and retake practice exams to boost their knowledge in those areas. Most practice exams are based on those given in previous years, and they give similar questions. Practice exams are recommended for all who are preparing for licensing because they also help reduce test anxiety.

Becoming a licensed contractor will require a commitment to intensive learning of all material. Those who excel know what kind of learners they are and take the right approach to preparing for the exam. No matter what your learning style, there is a right method to help you study.

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.

A Deep Clean Or Basic Clean?

Whether you are looking for someone to clean your home or your business, a cleaning service can offer assistance. Some companies will only offer basic cleaning while others will offer a thorough cleaning. There are a few noticeable differences between a basic cleaning and a deep cleaning.

A basic cleaning is less expensive than a deep cleaning. If a business or home has never been cleaned, then a deep cleaning would probably be the best thing to do for the first time. Many cleaning companies will require a deep cleaning for any new client. A deep cleaning is often a good idea if you are moving from one home or business to another. This will give a fresh smell to the area and get more dirt out of the carpet than a basic cleaning would do, making it as clean as possible for the new tenants. A deep cleaning is also a good idea after a holiday celebration or a special occasion.

Most Minneapolis cleaning services, as well as companies in other cities, will offer mopping, sweeping and vacuuming with a basic cleaning. In the bathroom, the shower is cleaned but is disinfected during a deep cleaning. A deep cleaning also involves cleaning the tile grout as well as the door frames and any decorations that might be on the shelves. A basic cleaning involves emptying the trash can, cleaning the toilets and cleaning the mirrors. The floor is also cleaned. Towels are changed if they are hanging in the bathroom. A deep cleaning of the kitchen includes the interior of the oven and behind the refrigerator. Fingerprints are removed from surfaces, and the inside of the microwave is cleaned. The basic cleaning of the kitchen involves sweeping and mopping, cleaning the surfaces of appliances and counters and cleaning the sinks.

The trash through the home is usually cleaned with a basic service. Dusting is done through the home. A deep cleaning usually includes cleaning the ceiling fans and mini-blinds. Vents are dusted, and linens are often changed on the beds. Laundry can also be done if requested by the home owner.

Need some home decor tips for your home?  This ballerina silhouttes will certainly make a good one especially if you attach some nice paper snowflakes around its waist.  Sometimes we need some unique decor to balance the formal and stiff decors in our homes.  This ballerinas showed how nice to have a contrast with colors of the dark room making your elegant but formal decoration a little bit light and stylish.  These are perfect additions in your interiors especially in your bedrooms.

Oftentimes we really need to use our creative minds to uncover the designer side in us.  My teacher Mom knows a lot about using paper in making creative decors in school and as a child then I was really amazed when she starts working with her paper and scissors coming up with beautiful creations in the end.  I guess all teachers are like her with thinking creative thoughts and they should be because kids see them as super individuals.
