According to the CDC’s “National Survey of Family Growth”, from the years 2006 to 2010, 32.8% of Americans married for the first time. While marriage rates continue to decline in the country, the fact is that many young men and women still see this union as a way of showing their love to one another.

The two big considerations every bride and groom-to-be have to think about are how to make their big day unique and how to save money. After all, the average cost of a wedding reception in 2012 was $13,106. In the period from 2011 to 2012, the number of couples with a wedding budget above $1 million doubled. The fact is that weddings are not getting cheaper. If you want to have a unique wedding day that does not cost you an arm and a leg, here is how wedding tent rentals can help you do exactly that.

Moving

Leaving an old home for a new home is not easy. Besides the emotional ties to the old place, there are several things to move. A long distance move is even more difficult. You must transport your materials a long ways, and the chances of having friends and family help you at both sites is significantly decreased.

Long distance movers can provide the aid you need to switch homes. Instead of doing all of the work yourself, professionals who are experienced and efficient at transporting all different types of materials can aid you. It gives you less to do, allowing you a chance to oversee everything and make sure that important things are put where they need to go.

Movers can provide pods for moving your material. Instead of having to stuff your car to the brim and still have to find another means of transporting your things, a moving company can take care of your needs. The emotional stress of changing homes is enough. You should not put too much physical pressure on yourself to transport all your goods as well.

Hiring movers can help your move to be quick and efficient. They can help set things up at your new house, making it more of a home right away. The faster you move in, the faster you can get adjusted to your new life.

Three Contemporary Artists You Should Know

Written by Contemporary Artists on June 12, 2013. Posted in Homepage

Contemporary artist

Many people fail to appreciate the thought and innovation that often goes into the work of contemporary artists. It is easy to look at a piece of art and think it is nothing special, or something we can do at home. Half the difficulty of creating great art, however, is being the person who plans a concept out of nothing. Whether or not it is easy to imitate after that moment is not really the point. If you are interested in contemporary and modern art, there are several famous modern artists you should be aware of. Here is a run down of some of the biggest players producing right now.

First, one of the most prolific living contemporary artists in the world is Gerhard Richter, who has been working diligently at his art for many decades now. His pieces have sold for millions, and he is currently the top selling living artist in the world. One of his pieces, titled Domplatz, Mailand, sold for 37 million dollars in 2013. An artist of German origin, Richter has produced artwork in a variety of styles, being an abstract artist, a photo manipulator, and a traditional oil painter at various times. One of his most famous series is 4900 colors.

Second, Marjetica Potrc is a Slovenian artist who experiments with architecture and seeks to create art that helps people in the real world, such as when she designed dry toilets for Latin American slums. Her pieces are usually an examination of structures in other countries, that have been altered in order to make them both more livable and serviceable. Among contemporary artists, her art transcends being simply an observation. In its real world usages, it is an interaction with the very structures it seeks to question.

Third, the english Damien Hirst is well known famous contemporary artists, and is as much internationally renowned as he is internationally accused of being a fraud. A common theme in Hirst artwork is the theme of death, and many of his pieces have been animals and animal parts preserved in Formaldyhyde. The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living is one of his most well known pieces, and it is a preserved tiger shark. He also made headlines several years ago for selling a platinum skull studded with diamonds. The fact that he himself contributed to the purchase was an interesting statement within the piece.

The Complicated World of Moving Your Stuff

Written by Contemporary Artists on June 11, 2013. Posted in Long distance movers, Movers, Pods

Moving

Take a second and think about how many times you have moved from one house to another in the course of your life. Remember all the packing? Remember all the lifting? Remember the stress, the cleaning, the exhaustion, and the stress again? Well even if you have moved once a year for most of your life (which is a lot!), you still have not moved as much a professional mover. So give them a hug next time you see one.

Movers will come in and pack all of your belongings for you. They will lift every box into the truck for you. They will move your appliances. They will drive all your things to a new location… where they will do the whole thing again in reverse! Every day, movers are moving things from here to there. In one month a typical moving company will move more than the average person will move in their entire life.

Try to remember how sore you were after your last move, from lifting and carrying and stretching and hauling. Now try doing that every day! Movers take great care to lift properly (with the legs), carry securely, and avoid as many injuries as possible. But it still takes a great deal of stamina and energy to be a mover.

And long distance movers do all of that, and then also drive across the state or even across the country to move your things from house to house. That involves superb highway safety, knowledge of interstate DOT regulations, and efficient navigation skills. Add to that all the knowledge of specific loading equipment and tools, and you begin to see the many different hats that movers must wear.

Of course, some people still prefer to pack their own boxes. They find security and comfort in packing and placing their valuables personally, and knowing exactly where everything is in each box. Some people even prefer to use portable storage units (sometimes called pods) to pack their belongings. When the packing is done, movers can come and move the unit to the new location to be unloaded and unpacked. There is a lot of flexibility in the policies of moving companies regarding how much or how little they need to pack. But whatever your level of involvement, know that your movers will be there on time, ready to work, and ready to work hard, all to make sure your move goes as smoothly and stress free as possible.

Four of the Most Famous Artists of Our Time

Written by Contemporary Artists on May 30, 2013. Posted in Homepage

Famous modern artists

Many people are quick to dismiss modern art, but we live in a time of incredible art innovation. Many of the artists who are just making their name now are destined to become the Van Goghs and Picassos remembered by future generations. What are some of the most famous modern artists alive right now?

First, Damien Hirst. He is famous for selling a diamond studded platinum skull, and is an internationally renowned artist. Death is a common theme in his works, and many of his pieces are different dead animals preserved in Formaldyhyde. One of his best known pieces in this The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, which is a tiger shark preserved on formaldyhyde.

Second, Sophie Calle is a French modern artist who focuses on ideas like human vulnerability, identity, and intimacy. She is known for her detective esque ability to follow around complete strangers in order to observe their private lives. As an abstract artist she often delves into examining interactions between people and place, the familiar and strangers.

Third, Gerhard Richter is one of the most prolific famous contemporary artists, whose pieces have sold many times for thousands and millions of dollars. His piece Domplatz, Mailand sold for 37 million in May 2013. He is the top selling living artist in the entire world. Richter is German and his work spans multiple genres of art and painting, though he is perhaps more famous for his ove rpainted photographs, and 4900 colors. He has been both an abstract artist and a more traditional portrait painter at the very same time, which is rare among top artists.

Fourth, Marjetica Potrc, from Slovenia, began her abstract artist journey in architecture and journeyed into art. She examines structures and situations in distant places and tweaks them to be more serviceable and livable. She has made art that helps people as well, such as dry toilets for Latin American slums.

Modern art artists, it can be seen, examine the world in a multitude of ways. Though their pieces are quite different from more traditional art expressions, they make people examine concepts differently, see information in a new way, and sometimes they even help things to happen in the real world. The abstract artist is an important part of art history.

Unique gift baskets

Before someone has a baby, their friends or relatives might throw them a baby shower that will provide them with lots of gifts and an afternoon or evening of fun before they have their child. Though they are a great event, sometimes, individuals who are heading to one will have difficulty coming up with a great gift idea. If that is the case, they might want to find somewhere to purchase baby gift baskets. Unique gift baskets are a great option and can be full of lots of items that both the baby and mother will find useful. As a result, baby gift baskets can be one of the most practical items that a parent receives before giving birth.

The number of different items that could be included in baby gift baskets are virtually limitless. While some might be full of practical items like personalized baby clothes, soaps, bottles, and even diapers, other baby gift baskets will have more fun items like toys and teddy bears. And, in some instances, individuals will have the ability to customize the baby gift baskets that they are giving as a gift. Because of their flexibility, they are a great option for anybody who wants to provide an expecting parent with a gift that they will surely appreciate.

When thinking about buying baby gift baskets, individuals will want to think about what the parents might actually need in order to keep their child comfortable and happy. For some, that might be real practical items, like toddler stools, and for others, toys that put a smile on the face of a child are the better option. Fortunately, there are baby gift baskets of both types. And, if someone can not decide on one big item, they can throw several items into a basket to make a unique and memorable gift.

Traditionally, baby showers have been geared towards the mother and are meant to help her, so, in addition to baby gift baskets, individuals might give presents that are specifically meant for women. However, there are gift baskets for women and gift baskets for men available, so any parent can receive some great items that will help them take care of their baby. Every family is unique when it comes to taking care of children, so, in many cases, both the father and the mother will need to have the items required to do so. Because of that, when purchasing baby gift baskets, individuals might want to keep both the father and mother in mind. This is a great source for more.
