  • Protect The Investment Of Your Guitar With Strap Locks

    Posted by Stacey French on Jul 6, 2016

    Whether you have an electric guitar that costs $250 or one that costs $2,500, you likely want to take care to protect it. While guitars can get damaged in a number of ways, few things will cause the need for major repairs as quickly as dropping a guitar. If a guitar is inadvertently dropped with the headstock facing down, the weight of the guitar’s body can apply such downward force that the instrument’s neck snaps in half. The simplest way to avoid such issues — other than being sure-handed, of course — is through the addition of guitar strap locks. Here’s what you need to know. Why Strap Locks? Every electric guitar player should invest in a set of strap locks for each of his or her guitars. With a standard strap, the strap’s openings fit over the guitar’s two strap buttons. Over time, the constant pressure from the strap buttons can increase the risk of the strap’s openings until they no longer form a tight seal. The result can be the guitar slipping out of the strap and falling to the ground. Strap locks are available in several styles, but all carry the same purpose — of firmly holding the strap to the strap buttons on the guitar. The Design A common design for strap locks is as follows. You mount an apparatus through each of the holes in your strap. This setup contains a small metal post or clip, as well as a button to release it. You also remove the standard strap buttons from your guitar and replace them with strap buttons that are designed to...

  • Want To Plan A 5K Fundraiser? How To Make The Most Profit

    Posted by Stacey French on Feb 9, 2016

    If you are planning a 5k fundraiser there are a lot of easy ways you can make a lot of money off of the event. You just have to accommodate all of the potential runners that will be in the race and make sure that you get the community to help with the project.   You’ll want to make sure people know you can walk or run at the event, and that you don’t have to be a professional athlete to participate. You can even have a time when kids can enter with their bikes if they want, or allow kids to ride next to parents and strollers. Here are a few things to consider.  Items to Have Donated A local park or area where you can have the trail marked off is the most ideal. If you can limit where people have to cross the street or prevent it all together it will make the race go smoothly. Ask businesses to donate bottled water for the runners, ask for donations for bagels, snacks and other items for the runners, and even for the flyers and marketing materials. If it’s for a fundraiser the community will want to pull together. Registration Fees If you can get most of the costs donated it can lower the cost you charge for the run. You can get more people involved, which mean more opportunities to sell promotional items for the event, if you offer deals. You can offer the second person on the registration form a discount, and do a five person team bundle price, or other offers like that. You can also...

A few additions such as new hardware and paint can give almost any style cabinet a country flair. There are many types of hardware that can lend a country feel to the cabinets. Homeowners should consider options such as cup pulls, window sash pulls, glass knobs, cremone bolts, and over-sized pulls for their cabinets. Paint color also plays a big role in country decor.

One of the hallmarks of country kitchens are the useful, and often antique, items scattered throughout. Items such as wicker baskets are a great choice for country kitchens.
