Happy Veteran’s Day!

November 10th, 2017 by tisner

“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”–President Woodrow Wilson

So began President Wilson in November 1919, when he dedicated Armistice Day, November 11, to the cause of world peace and to honor the sacrifice of the US military after World War I. Nineteen years later, a legal holiday was officially signed into being, and in 1954, the name was changed from Armistice Day to Veterans Day to honor all veterans. Veterans Day differs from Memorial Day in that it celebrates living and dead US Veterans, and pays tribute to their sacrifices for the freedoms in this country.

Ceremonies, parades, and special events dedicated to honoring our veterans happen all over the country, and what better way to pay tribute than to attend an event in our local area?  See the links for more information!

Rock Painting Fun!

October 23rd, 2017 by tisner

Have you been walking in your community, and found a pretty hand-painted rock with a motivating message? The Kindness Rocks Project trend can lead to adventure for you and the kids, and can be a fun neighborhood project.  All you need is a few supplies, time and imagination! 

Supplies 

  • Smooth rocks of any size.  You can look for these laying around outside, or purchase them from a craft store or home center. If you’re finding them in a natural setting, make sure you have permission! 
  • Any of these decorating mediums: acrylic paint, non-toxic paint markers, colored Sharpies, inspirational phrases printed and cut out, Mod Podge Outdoor or clear acrylic sealer spray, paint brushes of varied sizes, a paint palette or tray to hold paint, newspaper, and soap and water for clean-up. 

How To 

  • Clean the rocks thoroughly, using a brush and clean water.  Scrub the whole surface, and rinse completely, then let dry. 
  • Lay newspaper down to protect your surfaces, and get supplies ready while the rocks dry. 
  • If you are using paint markers only, seal the rock with Mod Podge, or, using adult supervision, clear acrylic spray. 
  • Paint any design or brief inspirational message on the rock surface, and allow to dry.  Make sure to wipe the brush after each dip so paint doesn’t run on the rock.  Younger children may need some help with this from the older kids. If you need some inspiration or design ideas, you’ll find some here. 
  • Add your local rock-finding group hashtag to the back of your rock, a hashtag unique to your family, or use #TheKindnessRocksProject so when your work of art is found, you can keep a trace on it, and others can see it as well, through social media. 
  • Another way to add inspirational messages is to use quotes pre-printed on paper.  Adhere the paper to the rock with Mod Podge.  Once it’s dry, paint or draw your design on the rock.  Seal the paint and paper with a few coats of Mod Podge, and the paper will be protected from the elements. 
  • Once your work of art is complete, seal it with a few coats of Mod Podge or clear acrylic sealer spray, once again, using adult supervision. 

Hide and Seek 

  • Place your rock in a hiding spot, but make sure it can be seen–you want other rock hunters to find your rock. Public places are great for leaving your rocks, just not in National Parks.  
  • When you find someone else’s stone, give it a new hiding place after taking a photo and posting it along with the hashtag on social media.  Most local rock-finding groups have Facebook pages–search for them by your town or community name so you can share the fun! 
  • Keep a basket of finished rocks in the car, and if you see a space that needs some inspiration, leave a rock for others to enjoy (ask first, just in case!). 
  • Ask your local children’s hospital if you can contribute rocks so kids who aren’t able to go outside can rock hunt inside. On the same token, get permission from a nursing home or assisted living center to leave rocks for seniors to find. 

Rock painting and hiding is a trend that will hopefully continue.  Leave the rocks to inspire, as well as to bring joy. You never know whose day you may be brightening, just like Megan Murphy of Massachusetts, who was inspired to start The Kindness Rocks Project.  Now, get painting, have fun, and inspire someone today!

Sprucing Up with Paint!

October 18th, 2017 by tisner

If finances are tight, but you’re ready to give your home a new look, paint is the budget-friendly way to go.  Making it a DIY project is even more cost-effective, and with so many options and ways to add color to your walls, you need some guidance so it will look like it was done by a pro. 

Which Paint and What Finish? 

  • Latex paint is best for walls, and oil paint is perfect for wood trim, because it seals stains.  Oil paint takes longer to dry, and has a strong odor, but if you add a tablespoon of vanilla extract per gallon, and open the windows, it helps keep the odor in check.  
  • Flat paint goes on easily, but doesn’t clean easily; glossy paint is great for cleaning, and comes in semi-gloss, and satin, but doesn’t cover wall imperfections. For a nice compromise, an eggshell finish is somewhat flat, but easy to clean. 

Choose Your Color 

  • Choose a color for the room/s you’re updating, and don’t be afraid of using a bold color.  This adds character and some wow factor to your home. Neutrals are great for quick-change decorating, or if you’re thinking of selling soon. 
  • Using pint-can paint samples, apply a 2×2 foot area of each color on the wall you’re planning to paint, allow to dry for 24 hours, and look at them at different times of the day.  You’ll get a more accurate feel for the color in the different lights, and whether you can live with it or not. 
  • Don’t forget the ceiling! You can change the feel of the room’s height by going a shade darker (for a lower ceiling feel), or go a shade lighter or use a lighter color to give the illusion of a higher ceiling. 

Painting Prep 

  • Measure your room for square footage, and make sure you buy enough paint–about one gallon per 400 square feet. 
  • Purchase good painter’s tape, drop cloths, putty, a good putty knife, caulking, and any tools you may need for removing hardware from any doors or walls. 
  • Protect light fixtures, trim, or wall sconces with painter’s tape.  Move furniture and put down drop cloths. Use wall putty or caulking to fill and smooth any holes or other wall damage. 
  • Clean, sand, and dust walls, using a vacuum to make sure all of the dust is off the walls. 
  • Priming the walls is really important if you’re covering a dark color, if there are stains on the walls, or if you’re painting paneling or new sheetrock. Tint the primer with a little of your new wall color before applying. 

Start Painting 

  • Paint mixing isn’t 100% perfect. Professionals mix all of the gallon cans together in a five-gallon bucket for color uniformity.   
  • Paint in corners and close to the ceiling with a good brush before you paint the walls, working your way down to catch drips. This process is called “cutting in.” 
  • Working in an overlapping W-pattern, apply paint until you need to reload the roller.  If you notice paint drying quickly, work in 3-4 foot sections of wall, but a whole wall can be accomplished in the case of a slower drying process. 
  • Smoothing the paint is important and is done by using what paint is left on the roller to paint as close to the ceiling and corners as possible, where you’ve already cut in. This gives a smooth appearance to the finish. 
  • Clean your equipment as soon as painting is done:  latex paint can be washed off with dish detergent and warm water, but oil paint should be cleaned off with paint thinner.  
  • Once the paint is dry, after about 24 hours, move your furniture back in, but hold off hanging anything on the walls for a few days, and don’t wash them until the paint has cured, usually two weeks to thirty days. 

A newly painted room can make your home feel fresh, and make it look as if you’ve redecorated.  If you’re feeling really adventurous, try painting a pattern on your wall.  It may take more time, but the dramatic effect it makes in the room makes the wall a focal point in itself. diy Network has some great tips for a patterned accent wall: http://www.diynetwork.com/how-to/skills-and-know-how/painting/how-to-paint-stripes-chevrons-blocks-and-more
