Enjoying Crafts With Kids

As soon as I had kids, I knew that I wanted to spend a lot of time doing fun, hands-on projects with them. Unfortunately, I didn't grow up with a mom who encouraged us to participate in artistic activities, so I didn't really know how to get started. However, after reading a bunch of online tutorials and picking up some craft supplies, we were able to get right in there, create some gorgeous art, and really have a good time. My kids and I spend at least three hours a week creating works of art, and they love every minute of it. Check out this website to learn how to enjoy crafts with your kids.

3 Tips For The Perfect Picture Frame

If you want to turn your photos into long-standing keepsakes that will be hung for years, you will want to not just buy a picture frame, but work with a framing services contractor who can help you out. These professionals will be able to give you the help that you need to make your photos look marvelous for the long haul. If this is important to you, there are some key guidelines that you will need to keep in mind that will let you frame your pictures to the best of your ability. Read on to exercise those points.

1: Know Some Mistakes To Avoid When Ordering Custom Frames

When you are putting together an order for custom picture frames, you will need to be sure to avoid some mistakes that many people tend to fall into. One of the most critical mistakes that people make is selecting a mat that is too small. As a rule of thumb, make sure that the mat border is at least twice as wide as the frame. You should also be sure that you keep the grade materials in mind, so that you are selecting glazing that is best for reducing things like glare and ultraviolet rays, and should be sure that you select glass material as opposed to plexiglass. 

2: Be Sure That Your Photos Are Getting Air

To be sure that you are getting longevity out of your photos, you need to mitigate damage that can occur due to excess moisture. If you don't allow the photo to "breathe", the photo will develop undue amounts of heat and dampness that can lead to mold and mildew. This can turn a well framed photo into a ruined photograph, which can be catastrophic if it is an important family memory. 

3: Focus On The Setting Where The Picture Will Hang

In order to get the most out of your framing, you will need to consider the setting. This will allow you to work with a framing professional who can help you match the colors, framing materials and lighting that will allow you to make the most of the picture. Doing this will let you maximize on the display, whether you want a casual residential setting or a gallery based display.
