Art and Music

As they say, every one should have at least one hobby in his life so that no one will get dull or boring. I have quite a lot of hobbies myself like digital photography, digital scrapbooking, blogging, art and some crafts. Wish I love music as well but not really my cup of tea. Sure I love listening to music all the time but I don't know how to play any musical instrument like guitar or 88 keys as well.

I'm contented on my arts area but still would not mind learning an instrument in the future..

Gifts from the Heart

Christmas is really just around the corner and I know a lot of you are excited already. My niece and nephew are certainly excited for they know they can open the gifts that they have under the Christmas tree. I know they already know that true meaning of Christmas but as kids as they are, gifts will be the top most on their minds.

Opening gifts during Christmas Eve or day depending on you family tradition will always be special. The eyes of the children will light up while opening their presents, be it a toy or shirt or whatever. For adults: perfumes, clothes, furniture or even a pog pedal for those who love listening and playing good music can be heaven as well. All gifts from the heart are priceless.

Right now, I'm celebrating holidays here in Sydney with my sister's family and I'm enjoying my time. I have not been creating some digital products right now as I want to enjoy the holiday. I will resume when I get back in February.

Crafts and Music

I have always been inclined to arts and crafts ever since I was young. I remember doing paper crafts, cutting and pasting here and there. Making topiaries made of buttons, ribbons,and flowers are enjoyable. When cross-stitching became hit in the 90's, i also tried my hand making some masterpieces that I still have up to now. I have over 15 frames cross-stiched items in our house and some in our shop. Those are priceless possesions of mine that can't be bought, to think I can't make any of those again. I enjoy my hobbies and it's my way to express my feelings and let out my creativity.

While I enjoy arts and crafts, my dear friend enjoys playing the piano. It has always been her fave anyway since we are in elementary. I'd come to their house while she plays piano in their living room while me and my other friends gaze with amazement over her playing skills. She has played on one of the best pianos in the market for they have piano at home.

I hope you have hobbies too..

Music Inspired Digital papers

Ahhh.. what a busy designing life .. Oh no I'm not complaining, in fact, I'm so happy that I'm putting my talent into good use because I can also earn from what I am doing. Desining digital background papers and cliparts can be fun most of the times especially when I have lots of sales. Apart from that receiving positive reviews from my buyers make s me more inspired to my more designs that I  can put in my store.

Lately, I have made 3 musical note digital papers that are up in my store already at Etsy and tpt. I'm still trying to make some more papers with musical theme. Not quite sure if I can make a full digital kit but papers will do, I guess. I guess it's fun to create some musical instrument cliparts, I can get inspirations from banjo musicians friend that I once saw online.These papers can be used to scrap musical recitals and other music related photos. Teachers can create beautiful music room for their students.

Hmm.. now I'm off to try to make more music papers.

How to Take Better Photos With Your iPhone

Right now, iPhone photos are the most uploaded photos on Earth. Some exhibits even feature iPhone-only images. If you want to go on vacation without lugging around a heavy camera, or if you haven't invested in camera equipment yet, learn how to take and edit great photos with just your iPhone.

1. When uploading an iPhone image to an app, make sure it keeps the image in its native resolution of 8MB or more. To check, look at the description of the app. Since native resolution is a major consideration, any apps that have this feature will mention it. You can also check the app settings to see if there’s an image resolution setting. You may be able to change it to 8MB, but the default could be much lower.

2. In low light, iPhone cameras need long exposures, just like regular cameras. However, it’s difficult to hold your phone still during a long exposure. Hand shake could result in a blurry image, which you don’t want, unless you’re going after a decrease in sharpness for stylistic reasons. Get a small tripod to shoot with your iPhone in low light.

3. Even if you normally shoot with a regular camera, always keep your iPhone on you and charged. When you don’t have your equipment along, you can still snap a shot with your iPhone. Sometimes, the more you have to carry, the less inclined you are to shoot. San Francisco hotels will have plenty of outlets to keep all of your electronics fully charged.

4. Practice with processing your photos. Write down routines that are effective. When you find something you like, you’ll have the steps recorded so it’s easy to repeat the process in the future.

5. Save your battery so that you can take a lot of photos before the phone dies. Close any apps you don’t need, turn off WiFi, and shut off location services.

6. Don’t use the telephoto option, which will decrease quality. Get as close to your subject as possible and then crop the image in the processing stage.

Don’t assume that just because it’s a phone, it can’t take fantastic images! Some avid travelers only bring along their iPhone to capture photos, because the camera creates great images and it saves a ton of weight and space in their luggage.

Digital Designing and all

Summer has been so unfriendly to many of us this year. It's hot and humid all the time plus the sudden burst of rain and typhoon during summer season is really crazy. A dose of heat then all of a sudden rain give us unpleasurable experience. Well anyway, while the summer heat is beating us, I've been constantly in love making new digital designs. Why not? My Esty store has picked up quite well and next month I'll be selling there for a year already. Awesome!

Etsy is a place for almost anything handmade, from digital items, shirts, goodies for kids, home decors, vintage stuff and more. Vintage items always sell anywhere, be it about clothing, home decors, and even musical instruments, they never fail to catch buyer's attention.

Right now, I'm making digital papers, cliparts, overlays but hopefully I can make some more printable items as well in the future.

Home Renovations

Ahhh.. what a busy day for us here in our part of the world. Summer time and it's the perfect time to have a house renovation. Actually, there's an ongoing construction here, a second floor with 2 bedrooms is on the way since last month and hopefully it will be finished this month. There are 10 workers that we have employed and hoping that they can do their best and put a good quality work.

We are excited over the renovation especially when the finishing will be done. We'll be checking for new furniture for the kids' room and lighting as well. For sure my bro will get LED lighting because it is cost-saving as we know. I will not wonder why myLED LowBay lighting are also popular on commercial establishments.

Now, I can't wait to see the bedroom of the kids and for sure they will be excited as well to have their own room now. As early as last week, the lil' princess is asking for a new bedding with her fave cartoon character.

Getting Help After a Natural Disaster

Tornadoes, hurricanes and floods ravage the United States on a regular basis. Although many homeowners are insured against these kinds of problems, the money doesn't instantly create a home. In these kinds of situations, you need someone that specializes in fast home renovations with quality performance. Whether you need a bedroom rebuilt after storm damage or larger projects involving most of the house, a quality professional that can get the job done as soon as possible is ideal.

Extra Costs While Waiting for Construction

In some situations, the home is unlivable and you may need to find alternatives. While some people may find comfort in staying with family, others put money into motels and hotels. This could become quite costly as you wait for a construction crew to finish renovating the home. You could wind up spending more money eating out as you have no kitchen to prepare food. If you have a large family, this could get incredibly expensive as the days go by. Even staying with family could be taxing on your nerves as well as paying for transportation to and from work.

Recovering from a Disaster

When a disaster happens that alters your way of life, such as losing your home, the emotional recovery can take longer than the physical one. Getting your home back in shape after something happens can go a long way to helping you piece together your life. In this kind of a situation, find a quality professional that can have your renovations done as quickly as possible.
