Ceiling Light

We have been living in this house for 5 years now and ever since, the ceiling light on our dining area has been broken. If the cover is intact, the light won’t turn on so we have to remove the cover to manually click on the starter of the light. I am going to add the ceiling light to my list of things I need to replace here. What do you think of this design?

Bathroom Renovation

When we moved in to our home here in Sta Rosa Laguna in 2005, we had to renovate the comfort rooms and repaint the walls of the house. We wanted to make sure that the toilet bowls were brand new and that it looked neat and clean. We were under a tight budget then so we chose those items that fitted our budget then. We didn’t consider the design, as long as it worked and that it was within our budget.

After 4 years of being here, there are several things that I want to have renovated. That includes our bathrooms. I checked out the different bathroom suites, bathroom furniture, bathroom cabinets and mirrors and shower enclosures and doors from BetterBathrooms.Com. It is so interesting that I can easily choose the designs that I want from a website!

I want to change our toilet so that it has a better push button. I am also planning on adding a big mirror which can help illuminate the small room. Lastly, I would like to install shower doors so that we won’t need a shower curtain which always rips.

Now, I just need to save some money for this bathroom renovation to become a reality!

Kid’s Art… What Next?

My kids have tons of art work especially now that its summer vacation. Most of the artwork are just stacked on a shelf somewhere or at the ref. But how about other art works? Honestly, I keep most of them but some of them, I just have to throw away. So what are the ways to preserve or keep these art works?

Here are some tips I would like to share.
1. Create a Wall of Art
We have a designated space in the kids room where they can stick any of their art works or stickers.
2. Give to Relatives
The kids can put a simple message at the back of their art work and give it to favorite aunt or grandparents.
3. Put It on Frames
We buy nice frames for the kids’ work. This is for special family portraits or special drawings.
4. Keep It on A Clearbook or Special Envelope
With so much art work being done, I really dont want to throw any work away. Clearbooks or envelopes can help keep the art work organized. We can also make a scrapbook for the kids and include their art work.
5. Capture It on Photo and Turn It into Souveneirs
We can capture the art works in photo so that when the original art work is not around anymore, we can still look back at their work. Also technology has also allowed us to use the captured photo on mouse pads, place mats and other printable items.
