Losing a loved one is hard and even though remembering them is painful, we still want their memories to linger with us forever. We often find solace in things that will remind us about our dearly departed so we cling to them like the air we breathe — like life.

Some people prefer to scatter the ashes in some place memorable. Just like the story of the devastated mother who scattered her son’s ashes to over 9,000 destinations across the world. But what this talented artist did to the ashes of departed ones is totally brilliant!

What first started as a request turns into something spectacular. California artist Merry Coor was asked by a young couple to include the ashes of a friend into a bead and that is the beginning of everything. It was then that she realized the purpose of her craft, preserving people’s memory of their loved ones in the form of beautifully crafted jewelries.

A ‘beautiful memory’ indeed.

Keeping our house (and self) safe and sound is our top priority, particularly when sleeping at night or when going on vacations. We always want to ensure that everything is free from burglars and thieves while we sleep or relax away.

The last thing we want is to keep on standing up and inspecting the entire house every time we hear doubtful sounds or sense unnecessary actions while asleep. Of course during vacations, we also want to think of nothing else but rest and relaxation. But how can this be given the sky-rocket prices of door lock systems?

We found this video of a DIY door lock device that can boost the house's security with just a dinner fork. Yes, a dinner fork. We could not believe it either at first, but when we saw the entire clip, we were stunned! And the project does not require the leanest of the muscles or the brightest of the brains. The procedure is simple and if executed well, this can potentially secure your house and family well.
