DIY Christmas Craft #14

Christmas. Can you believe it is just around the corner? When you say the word Christmas, what does it make you think of? For me, it brings back memories of The Sound of Music. As a child, I remember sitting down to watch this every year with my family. Music is a joyful thing and with that, here is a post of musical Christmas crafts, musical looking that is.

What you need is sheet paper, double-sided tape and string. Then, cut out 12 circles and fold them in half. Use double-sided tape to connect the folded circles together; eventually shaping a ball. Create a loop with string and secure it with tape or hot glue if you'd like.
For those of your who like to get their hands dirty, this one is for you. What you need is some old round ornaments you can't stand to look at anymore, or just plain old ones (maybe spring for the plastic ones so they last longer). Grab some sheet music, an old paint brush, glue, glitter, ribbon and a bell. Just a quick note, if you want to simplify this, just nix the bell and the glitter and stick with the basic concept. I am sure your ornaments will look fantastic either way.  

Rip up the music sheets into strands and start gluing them onto your ball. Make sure to overlap the strips and press them down so they stick. When your done, paint the hanging piece with glue and dip it in glitter. Secure your bell on with string and attach a hand written note like "Noel" for an added touch. Finish by tying a bow and add string for hanging.

FYI, if you want to be a hard core crafter, instead of using glue, you can pick up this stuff called mod podge. It's an all-in-one glue, sealer and finisher. It even comes in different finishes like glitter, sparkle, gloss, matte, shimmer and satin. WHOA!!!!!

Now, if you're at the store picking up some plastic ornaments of the previous craft, pick up few more for this one. I don't really need to tell you much on the details of this craft as I think it is self explanatory. All you need to do is cut strands of sheet music and insert them into the ball. As in this picture, you can finish with lace, but if it were me, I would rather bling this baby up with sparkly wired ribbon.

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.
