Home and Music

Home is where the heart is as they always say and for me it’s true as I always find peace when I’m home. And you know what makes it more relaxing at home? Well if you have fine music playing inside your home, that’s where the feeling of peace comes from. We do enjoy good Christian music at home playing from a player, from TV, laptop or even from mobile phones only where we usually have hundreds of music saved in memory. 

It’s even more enjoyable to hear inspiring music if you have a good quality component with some kind of marshall amp with it. Well it’s such a nice idea to collect equipment and accessories that would magnify and clarify the music you’re playing. This way you don’t have to always go to concerts and outdoor music gig just to satisfy your music cravings.

Plans for a Music Room

We love music at home and when it’s our rest day from work we always play Christian music to set our spirit high on positive attitude. It set our home on a happy ambiance and keeps us on a joyful mood. It relaxes us more when the kids play the keyboard and guitar because it brings a natural music coming from the instruments that produce various types of sounds. Due to hectic schedule my daughter plays less music this semester because her CAD drawings take most of her time, sometimes finishing her plates on midnight. Anyway she promised herself that she’ll play more on semester break.

With our flair for music we sometimes think of setting up a music room where we can place our musical instruments and accessories. We also want to add some more of those we’ve seen online like new guitar, new keyboard, some really nice accessories and equipment like iron ball. Well for now it’s just a plan but who knows? Maybe we’ll be able to make it a reality after a year.

Cool Green Home Kitchen

Photo: Sarri & Forrai Photography

For those who love to see green surroundings in their interiors you might want this one.  Last summer I had my own kitchen renovated and though it's not as grand as the above picture I can say that I'm satisfied with the changes.  I had my kitchen appliances arranged and fit in one line and had the repainted with cool green color.   I had my gas range fitted to the wall as previously it just stand in the middle of the kitchen.

Well I love to have a kitchen like this in the future but for now I should be contented with what I have, anyway the colors are the same and so is the ambiance, very cool and anyone who enters this kitchen will feel peaceful and comfortable. 

I saw this at kitchen.com and  this one is from Sawhill Custom Kitchens and Design, Inc.

Fruit on Stick on Birthday Parties



When I attend parties usually on kids' party there's always hotdog on stick at the table perfectly arranged around a big watermelon or cabbage whatever is the fancy of the host.  Hotdog on stick is commonly with cheese or marshmallows on each side and kids love it.  Even when my kids are already teens I still prepare some of hotdogs on stick for enjoyment.

Now looking at these fruits on stick it gave me nice ideas for the coming birthdays.  I know not only adults will like it but my kids as well because they also love fruits and will certainly be excited at the beautiful arrangement. This is such a unique and creative idea and I'll copy this for sure. Variety of fruits or the kinds I'll put will depend on the fruits in season or I'll just use some that are always available like apple, grapes, pineapple and others. This is going to be fun and healthy too. What about you? Some ideas on what to put on the stick?

Food Storage Ideas



Do you find it messy to see your bread and other vegetable on top of your kitchen counter?  Aside from keeping them in my refrigerator's vegetable bin I really find it hard to keep the onions, garlic and other dry vegetable on top of the counter because I want every food on proper storage.  I don't want them out in the open to keep away pests also.

Sometimes I encounter little problems with these dry vegetables because they get wet on the refrigerator's vegetable bin and will cause them to rot easily.  The long life span of veggies will be shorter than expected.  Seeing this bread bins and dry vegetable storage organized in the kitchen cabinet will definitely solve the problem and will keep the mess as well. Nice kitchen and cooking idea.

Bonding On Rainy Days

Now that rainy season is on board already it’s best for me to stay home on weekends and holidays, I get tired easily when I’m out and the weather is not that good. Traffic is at its worst and commuters find it hard to get home on rush hours. Well if there are cons there are pros also, rainy days is quite refreshing and my writing mojo is at its best when raining. We all have our best times to do our work and for me rainy season pushes me to write with so much inspiration. 

Since rainy days almost always keep us at home it’s good to practice playing our musical instruments as well. It’s one of the things that keep the kids and family together when going out seems so tiring. It would be good if you have a nice music studio at home filled with highly innovated musical equipment like korg taktile controller or some other accessories that we need to enhance playing our instruments.

Perks of Working at Home

The best working place for me is my own home sweet home not just because it’s comfortable but you’ll get to do multi-tasking as well. Imagine earning in the convenience of your home while managing your household, surely it’s the best. I’ve been earning online for nine years now and during those first two years and last five years I was working in corporate office at the same time. I do my online writing tasks at night or during weekends and non-working days. Well working offline and online might be hard at times but if you think of the compensation you’ll be inspired to work especially for people like me whose passion is writing. 

Writing provides a way for me to share my thoughts and earns a living plus I get the chance to be online most of the times. Also, when you’re online you’ll get to know the best deals and services offered by online shopping sites that offers gadgets, home appliances, clothes, shoes, bags, jewelries, computers, toys and just about everything you need.

Staying at With Music Around

Staying at home is one of the things I enjoyed most especially if the whole family is around and craving for my delicious cooked dishes. I love cooking special dishes and desserts for my family because they’re a bunch of people who love foodies. When we’re at home on weekends I cook and the kids play music either keyboard or guitar. 

They love playing and we love hearing the sounds they play. And because we’re a group of music enthusiasts seeing sampletank on one of the music sites makes me yearn to have it. It will be a great addition to my music software and we’ll surely love having it.

Perfect Taco Plates

Source: solutions.com via Race on Pinterest


My sister and I love tacos and on some occasion if we have enough time we prepare this food to change the usual menus for the usual occasions. Sometimes we really have a hard time piling what we finished doing and we want to distribute it as soon as we're finished doing tacos one by one. It's easier if we can do it groups and just arrange it on the table. 

Well this Taco Plates would be an ideal stacking plates for the tacos and we can prepare it continously.  This is just right for our usual problem in preparing our favorite food.  Now I'm going to tell this to my sister so we can plan more Taco times in family's celebrations.  The designer of this plate is so smart and maybe he or she must be a lover of tacos too just like us.

Readymade Curtains


Spent the whole day on general cleaning and I realized that some of our home accessories and linens should really be replaced now.  We should shop for new ones as our house needs a lot of make over.  Since the budget will never make way for a grand one I'm thinking of doing a little trick on the not-so expensive ones like home decors and curtains.  I have a friend who can sew some nice curtains for me but looking at these readymade curtains from look4design I'm having second thoughts on whether I should have our curtains custom made or just buy curtians as cute as these ones. Sometimes it's less hassle when you buy readymade.

Enjoying Vacation with Good Old Musical Instruments


The kids are enjoying their summer vacation except that it’s extremely hot to go outside. With this kind of weather they choose to stay inside the house and think of some things they can do best indoor. Since they really love music they play keyboards and guitar in their free time or whenever they suddenly feel that they want to do other things than online activities. Nowadays children are more inclined to online games and other activities associated with internet and computer but I’m happy that sometimes my own kids choose to play musical instruments when they feel boredom is eating them. 

Well Gen is requesting for few guitar accessories like d andrea pro plec to use for her old-time guitar. She’s so fond of playing that I really wish I could buy her a new guitar to play on. Maybe I can do it in the next few weeks after I’m finished with the school expenses and her course requirements like new laptop and engineering supplies. For now they would have to play with their current musical instruments until I’ve saved enough for the new ones.

Kitchen Organization Ideas

Rev-A-Shelf, 548-BC-8C, 7-3/4 Inch Pull-Out Base Organizer, Chrome & Black



When I want something new in the kitchen or when I feel that our kitchen is a bit messy I think of home ideas to organize the mess. Well my engineer brother shared some bright ideas on how to do what I want and the customized cabinets posed some solutions. As my kitchen appliances and small standing cabinets makes my kitchen seem so small I really need to replace them with customized cabinets which I will place in the upper section. Planning some organization in the kitchen is one job that I love doing especially when I bumped into www.ovisonline.com where I found what I’m looking for the best solution in making my kitchen clutter-free and very organized.

Dreaming of Nice Home Studio

I dream of having a nice music studio at home so we can have good music when we’re all free from school and work activities. Since the kids play musical instruments and we love singing praise and worship songs it would be just perfect to have a good studio that we can use for our music bonding. It will be better if we invest in quality musical instrument, equipment and accessories like ath-m50x to complete the dream home studio I have in mind. 

There are many headphones available in the market but we have to choose the best ones that can give quality and clear sounds so it would be perfect for instruments playing also. Giving attention to my kids’ flair for music is one of the things that I give preference because I really want to hone whatever talent and skills they have. I’m looking forward to the day that my kids will play in our church praising ceremony.

Accessorize Your Car with Your Character


I know everybody would love to have a car of their own for their family or sometimes to use in their business and other activities. Nowadays having a vehicle is more a necessity than a luxury and even an average-earning individual can dream to have his own. Anyway if you don’t have enough finances for the high model brand new car you can opt to have slightly used car for a lesser price. Well it depends on your specific requirement and status quo as you can choose different classes of car that suits your budget. 

When you have a car it’s exciting to accessorize it to define your unique character and to make it more beautiful. Of course the exterior should be the main focus as it should be sleek, clean and shiny but you also have to make an effort on your interiors. When you have small kids you can put in some small stuff toys like we used to do when my two girls were only babies. You can also invest on some classy decors like miniature branded toy cars or Joy Jewelers car jewelry. Jewelries have a way of perking up the environment and put some class.  As some say your car defines who you are and that it reflects some of your real character make sure that it will really be the true image of yourself.
