Making Your Bedroom Personal

Some of us like our homes to be communal spaces. We boost their curb appeal to please the neighbors and design our living rooms with hosting in mind. Sharing your home in this way can be fantastically rewarding. Even those of us who like to share need privacy sometimes. What better place to do so than the bedroom? Setting this aside as your domain means you can share the rest of your home without worry. It also means you have space when you need it. As well as being a place to sleep, a bedroom is the perfect place to express yourself. That’s why we’re going to look at how you can get personal in the bedroom.


Nothing’s quite as important as your bed. So, that’s where we’re going to start. We all look for different things in a bed. Some like a soft mattress, while others require more support. Some of us like two pillows, while others wouldn’t dream of using more than one. Getting a bed to suit your needs is essential for helping you relax. When it comes to your mattress, it might be worth looking into memory foam options. It doesn’t get much more personal. These mold to your body to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. So, your bed would be just for you! Think, too, about your bedframe. Some people swear by iron frames, while others adore wooden ones. Again, this is up to you. Finish the bed off with duvet covers you adore. These are where you get to express yourself, so make sure you choose right. Don’t settle for the first cover you find. Shop around. Make a selection that reflects your interests. If you want to get really personal, you could get a cover made with a personal photograph!


Talking of personal photographs, these should feature heavily in your bedroom. You may not want to go to the extreme of a personal bed cover, and that’s fine. You should still make room for personal effects. Surrounding yourself with family photographs will ensure you feel comfortable. This is also the only place in which you can display photos without worry of scrutiny. Make the most of that and hang sentimental photos you don’t want to share with the world.


It may seem like an extreme step, but it’s worth putting a lock on your bedroom door. You don’t have to utilize this, but knowing it’s there will make all the difference. This is especially important if you let a lot of people into your home. How else can you ensure the space stays your own? Having the mental security of a completely private space is important for anyone. You’ll find it easier to relax with guests if you know you have that secret place to escape to when you need it. It’s a good way to ensure some alone time, even it is just to rest and read a book for a few moments.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
