How to Prepare for a Blizzard

Posted on: January 26, 2015

Blizzard ’15 is on its way and scheduled to roll in this evening and stick around through early morning Wednesday. There are a few things that you can do to prepare for a big winter storm like this. Our top five suggestions are:

1. Water – Big power failures can disrupt your water supply if pumps aren’t running. Every household should have plenty of clean drinking water on hand at all times. The rule of thumb is three-quarters of a gallon per person per day.

2. Food – Always have at least three days’ worth of non-perishable food on hand. It won’t do you any good if it has to be refrigerated and the power goes out for a week, so make sure to have crackers, dry cereal, pop-open cans of food, shelf-stable juice or milk, soup, etc. on hand. Keep a non-electric can opener in a drawer.

3. Flashlights – Have plenty and make sure the batteries are fresh.

4. Power – Do you have a generator? Or maybe you have a wood burning fire place or stove. Be prepared to go without electricity for several days, at least. Be careful with any gas powered generators and make sure they are running outside and far from doors and windows to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

5. Communication – Wireless handsets won’t work in a power failure. Old-fashioned landlines will, but if you’ve gone digital — and many people have — they won’t. Cell towers may go down in a widespread failure, rendering your smartphone useless. Make sure your cell phone is fully charged in anticipation of a power outage. Have a backup battery and at least one cellphone booster charger on hand.

Be safe out there everyone and most of all ENJOY playing in the snow AFTER the storm passes!


How to make your home FEEL larger…

Posted on: January 6, 2015

Are you looking for an easy and inexpensive way to make your home, or a room, FEEL larger?

To make a room feel larger, light to mid-tone shades are the way to go. Whites and neutrals such as gray, beige, tan or cream, create a clean, airy backdrop for any design or color scheme. White is often associated with cleanliness, innocence and goodness. Because they are neutral, these colors can be calming, and they make a room feel larger and more airy. To add drama, while keeping things calm and spacious, add pops of color with furnishings and fabrics.

In addition to color, consider the finish. Glossy surfaces reflect light, and this helps to expand the space. Blend the colors of the floor and walls by choosing colors that are within the same color group to eliminate the contrast where they meet, making the edges of the room less defined. Choose small patterns for furniture and fabrics that blend with each other and the paint color.


Welcome Year 2015!

Posted on: January 5, 2015

Happy New Year and welcome to Year 2015, the year of the Sheep! 2015 is a superb year to redecorate your environment. Sheep loves art and beauty in their environment, and are bothered by things that are dirty or tasteless. So keep your home tidy and nice all year long. Where to start? Start at the front door. Clean out your entry to welcome all the good luck that will come into your home and place of business in 2015. Clean out the front porch, entry hall, lobby, or whatever the entry is where you live. Make this area clean, well lit, and inviting. Check the entry’s lighting fixtures, add a fresh coat of paint, and a new rug to welcome the New Year of the Sheep.
