Moving With Ease: The Three Step Method

When it comes to moving effectively and efficiently, more thought should be placed on the ease of the actual moving rather than on time consumption and physical labor. Below are outlined three of the most insightful techniques to make the process of moving a very easy one indeed.
Step One-Plan, Prepare and Strategize.
With this step, you simply enjoy a warm evening with just a writing pad, some ink pens (or pencils if you prefer), and you write out the following days plans. Be sure to include all the help you have and make sure to delegate the most strenuous tasks to those who are more physically able to handle them. Preparation is key to easy moving, so knowing who will be there, where things will go, and how the process will work will make the following day’s events so much easier. To strategize in advance makes no room for error, miscalculations, etc. You will have imagined every possible mishap beforehand and made the necessary adjustments on paper to deal with them.
Step Two-Incite, Invigorate, and Explicate.
This step involves the ability to whip the team into a moving frenzy by the most effective means at your disposal. If your team consists of teenagers, have the pizza and sodas ready along with the music of the times. Make sure to allow them the liberty to use headphones if need be. With this step, you will focus on invigorating your moving team with a sense of unity, pride, and togetherness in the grandest way possible. Next will be the explicating. Sometimes this may consist of creating a sense of unity amongst the movers or even making the destination an ethereal land of gold to be obtained by all involved. This can be accomplished by mentioning the after party once the moved is completed, or by letting everyone know that prizes will be awarded upon completion of the move. Be sure that this step does not involve the actual payout for labor. This is a bonus that will invigorate even the laziest of movers. Extravagance rules the day.
Step Three-Execution, Observation, and Relaxation.
With this step comes action, the execution. This is easily done with the most effective items all movers need…cardboard boxes. To move without cardboard boxes is to eat without food, they are mandatory. The execution must be done with all sorts of boxes that have been labeled during step one with careful planning and strategizing. Once the team starts the move, you must then observe that all your ideas are being carried out and that no stone is left unturned.
This would mean making sure that all the boxes go where they are supposed to and the preordained items are in the preordained packages. Sometimes things will get misplaced if the observation is not carried out. Sometimes observation makes workers uncomfortable, so this step must be carried out in stealth or with the sense of teamwork but having a careful eye at the same time. The last part of this step is the most enjoyable part, the relaxation. Whatever plan you have to show the workers that the work performed was well appreciated, that is up to you. But do it in the spirit of rest and relaxation.
These are three steps to make moving a pleasant experience.

Creating a Beautiful Candy-Shaped Box

Creating a box is a great pastime for young and old alike. It is an art in itself, and crafts makers are trying to innovate how a box looks like. A candy-shaped box is an example of this innovation in box making, and the project would be a nice activity for those who are inclined to doing crafts.

After finishing the project, the box could serve as candy boxes, with treats being placed inside to be used by children of all ages. Making a candy-shaped box is easy, and all you have to do is to prepare the materials that will be used in the project and follow the instructions carefully. The candy-shaped box would need colored papers, scissors, cutter, tape, glue, ribbons, and confetti. Follow the procedure below to create a vibrant looking candy-shaped box:

  1. Take the colored papers and using a cutter or a scissor, try to create patterns and designs on its surface. Cut the designs and puncture holes that would serve as an additional design for the project.
  2. Carefully cut the edges of the colored paper, and make sure that the other one would have a planar edge and the other one would have a spikier edge. It would help to make the candy-shaped box easier to open and close.
  3. Fold the colored papers into four equal parts, and make sure that small space would be left out. This is where the tape or the glue will be applied, to ensure that the candy-shaped box will be steady and it will not rip apart.
  4. Apply a strong tape or clue to the edges of the candy-shaped box. Make sure that no space will be left behind because it might result in the project breaking apart.
  5. Create a beautifully designed motif that will be placed in the center of the candy-shaped box. Use a white paper with printed designs, or any other colored paper that would enhance the color of the project’s body. Try to use the color wheel to gain an insight as to what color complements the other.
  6. Get some ribbons and wrap it around the candy-shaped box. Make a good looking knot that would enable the edges of the candy-shaped box to close tight.
  7. Put the gifts or any other items on the other edge of the candy-shaped box. You can also add confetti or any other design inside the candy-shaped box.
  8. Seal off the project by putting another ribbon on the opposite edge.

After the project has been finished, what you will be is an adorable candy-shaped box. These boxes can be used as a container for a gift, or as a design at home. This type of boxes can also be given away on all occasions, and kids would surely love its design.

Artists and people who tend to stay at home should spend time learning new hobbies, and creating boxes are one of the best things to do to express your creativity. There are also a lot of websites available online that would give a free tutorial to those who wanted to learn more artworks. Box making has been around for so long, and now that technology has become better, boxes with complex designs are now possible to build. However, someone who is making boxes should keep in mind to keep extreme patience.
