One Soldier's Independence Day: A Poem

http://www.fusioncash.net/?ref=premar16

In a house this very day,
 A man holds his tears at bay,
He sees the things he shut away,
 Memories of another day,
 Outside the people play,
Enjoying this day,
They cook and eat,
While to music they tap their feet,
 In his house he sits and cries,
Remembering those who lost their lives,
He wishes he could see them,
To tell them how things have been,
 Darkness comes the children cheer,
They know what's coming near,
 Fireworks, lights and sounds galore,
 To him he hears the sounds of war,
He shutters with each and every sound,
The sounds outside are all around,
 He sees his friends killed again,
 He is in combat all over again,
 People smile the cheer and cry,
 At the lights that fill the sky,
Some look around to see,
 Their are many who they cannot see,
The time slowly passes,
People lease in slow moving masses,
He sits up from off the floor,
Suddenly a knock at the door,
 They ask why he did not go,
 He tells them he was at a show,
 His eyes are red and filled with pain,
They wonder if he is sane,
 He try's to explain another day,
They just say what the hay,
They think he is fooling,
That he should be drooling,
 He walks away,
Thinking of another day,
They tell him he needs to forget,
 He smiles filled with regret,
How do you forget,
 When you lived in fear,
 Not knowing if you would live,
 Not knowing if you would die,

Penny For Your Thoughts: REinspired Décor

http://www.fusioncash.net/?ref=premar16
                                  Today's thoughts are brought to you by........REinspired Décor.
We’re Bev & Samantha from REinspired Décor.  We are a mother/daughter team who love to create fun and affordable furnishings and décor items by upcycling old, unwanted pieces. We like to think outside the box and inspire our readers to do the same! Coming soon we will be featuring a DIY series for furnishing and decorating a stylish first home on a budget.



What craft supplies should every DIY-er have on hand?

For the type of DIY that we do at REinspired Decor, some of the essential supplies and tools for us are: a hammer, screwdriver and drill with assorted bits, measuring tape, safety glasses and a mask, good paint brushes, paste wax, sand paper and even a palm sander.  Depending on the types of projects you’re going to do you may want some specialty items like a wood burning tool, stencils, stamps, etc.



What project are you working on right now?
With the good weather coming soon we want our deck to be summer-ready so we’re working on a few projects that will give it the feel of a tropical escape.  We want it to have Mediterranean style so that means bold, saturated colours like luscious orange, sunny yellow and ocean blue with a bit of white to keep it all calm and relaxed.  We all work hard so why shouldn’t every weekend feel like a getaway without having to leave home.  This series of posts with our sunny deck projects will be coming soon to our blog at REinspired Décor.

What creative idea have you done with a mason jar recently?

Mason jars are a DIYer/crafter’s staple item.  So much can be done with them and they seem to evoke feelings of nostalgia in just about everyone.  We like to use them as pretty lanterns on the patio table for summer evenings.  Place a smaller jar inside the mason jar then fill the space in between with glass pebbles.  Now all you need is a tea light in the smaller jar and you have beautiful ambient light.  If you had a lot of them it would make for a very magical night on the patio.

Penny For Your Thoughts: Red Ted Art

http://www.fusioncash.net/?ref=premar16
                                  Today's thoughts are brought to you by........Red Ted Art

Red Ted Art

Your one stop shop for crafts - be it to find craft activities for kids or tutorials for adults. From easy sewing, to crafty cheats and messy fun with kids.

What craft supplies should every DIY-er have on hand?

Oooh, I think for us it is masking tape (because you can paint over it), glue (a very good PVA glue), paints, coloured paper and maybe googly eyes!
 
We love to use our recycling box as a basis for so many of our crafts, that you really don’t need that much extra to get started!



What project are you working on right now?
My last finished project were some fairy wands (we do a lot of kids crafts here) – quick and easy – turning take away chop sticks and some cereal boxes into bright fairy wands. Went down a treat!
 
DO you know any DIY crafts/projects for the disabled/handicap?
 
That is a tricky one, as each disability is different – different people have different needs and different skills. So, really that is quite individual. I would say that many of my crafts are great across a broad set of skills and abilities – it is just a question of how much help and support you give someone along the way. We like to “craft together”, which means we can tackle trickier things together too.
 

Do you have DIY idea to help children learn?
 
I think DOING DIY or crafts helps children learn – there are LOTS of things you can make FOR them, but I think working with your kids and making things with them, gives them invaluable skills.
 

What DIY projects do recommend for children?

Kids love to paint and screw things in… when we recently assembled some furniture my 7yr old LOVED being in charge of the electric screw driver… if we have paint pots out, my daughter is all over it. I think like all things in life, involve your children from as early on as possible. They love being part of things and joining and learn a lot whilst doing so.
 
I still would love to learn how to crochet those cute hats. So far I have only been successful at making blankets.


What creative idea have you done with a mason jar recently?
We are looking to turn some of our empty jars into terrariums soon.. but I also love making tissue paper lanterns out of them.


What is the biggest mistakes that beginner DIY'ers  make?
 
Maybe take on a job that is too big, which means they will never finish it? Start softly softly, don’t buy too many tools and see where it takes you?
