Coquitlam Movers Discuss Crating Away a Craft Room

Coquitlam movers offer easy tips on how to keep costly art and craft supplies safe when moving

COQUITLAM, BC--(Marketwired - January 13, 2017) - The Coquitlam movers at Ferguson Moving & Storage have published a blog that's bound to ring a bell with the arts community. Craft rooms are notorious for being a creatively messy place. With little bits strewn everywhere, it can be easy to lose track of costly supplies while in transport. However, the moving experts at Ferguson have some helpful tips on how to pack and move a craft room. For more, go to http://www.fergusonmoving.com/blog/pack-move-craft-room/

While losing bits and pieces might not seem like a big deal, a few dollars here and there can add up fast. Additionally, some items like paints, canvasses, or copic markers can be quite expensive. However, keeping your collection of craft supplies safe is relatively easy with a bit of preparation.

The first thing to do is create a simple inventory of all the supplies. This will help ensure that everything has arrived after moving. Other tips mentioned include simple life hacks, such as using pill boxes or bottles to store beads or other small items. Open paint jars should be wrapped in plastic to ensure your other items don't become a Technicolor mess, and tape shut any drawers with craft supplies inside.

There are a lot of other ideas as well. The blog reminds everyone to use their common sense and invest in proper supplies or travel gear that can make moving easier. For example, there are special cases made to hold paints, pastels, and brushes on the go. These contraptions often look like ordinary suitcases, but unzip to reveal an extraordinary framework of compartmentalized magic, designed to safely accommodate all your supplies.

Packing up a craft room is also an ideal opportunity to declutter. Decide what to take away and what to throw away, rather than clutter up a new space. If there is any heavy equipment that requires special handling, let the moving company know beforehand. Also, alert them to anything that may be sensitive to heat, cold, or dampness, like a canvas that could become warped by moisture.

Although moving craft supplies can seem daunting, a little thought and preparation is all that's needed to make sure your possessions arrive as expected. In no time at all, you'll be crafting up a storm in your new home.

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
