About Me

Hiring and Communicating with a Home Cleaning Service

Thanks for stopping by my website. My name is Annabelle Collins. My husband and I live in a large house with our two teenage children. We’re fortunate in that we’re able to have a cleaning service come and clean on a weekly basis. In the past, I found that it was difficult for me to exert myself when it came to hiring and communicating with our cleaning service. I’ve never been very authoritative, and that shone through in a not good way. I wanted things to be done in a certain way, but found it difficult to ask for what I wanted. I have come to realize that in order for the service to do the job I want to be done, I have to ask for it to happen. I doubt that I’m alone in the fact that this is difficult, and want to share my experience and growth.

Is Your Daughter Moving Out Of State For College? 2 Custom Gifts To Give Your Daughter

by Vicki Burns

If you have a daughter who is graduating high school and is going away to a college out of state, you are probably both feeling a lot of feelings about the upending move. To help both of you accept the exciting news and celebrate such a big accomplishment, there are a few different gifts that you may want to consider getting them right before they pack up their bags and leave. To make them remember home (and you, of course), there are a few different things you may want to gift them. From charm necklaces to pictures, here are a few gift ideas to give your soon-to-be college student. 

Charm Necklaces or Bracelets

If your daughter likes to wear jewelry, then one of the best gifts you can gift her is a charm of your home state. For instance, if you live in Texas, then you can get them a Texas charm bracelet or necklace for them to wear every day. Then, every time they look at their necklace or bracelet, they will think of you and of home. You can check with a resource like Texas State Preservation Board for more ideas on state-themed jewelry.

When you are shopping for some jewelry with charms on it, just make sure that it's either sterling silver or plated in gold; that way it won't tarnish if they wear it all of the time. Also, when you are shipping for jewelry, keep in mind that you can add other charms to their jewelry later on; so choose one that has several links on it. For instance, if they are really into music, you can always give them a music-inspired charm for their birthday. 

Custom Poster

Every dorm room needs some wall art, and posters make the perfect addition. Not only are posters an affordable gift, but you can make them really custom as well. For instance, you can have a poster made of pictures of your neighborhood or even a map of the city that they grew up in; when they see pictures of their home every day, they will hopefully remember how much their home means to them. 

Now that you have a few custom gift ideas to give your daughter before she moves away to college, it's time for you to get to work creating these gifts or shopping around for them. To learn more about custom jewelry and charms, reach out to a retailer near you today and see if they can help you out.
