AP Self Storage secures your most cherished valuables behind three levels of security. Gates occupy the facility's perimeter and can only be passed with a PIN. A state-of-the-art security system adds more peace of mind, and every individual unit is equipped with its own alarm. Furthermore, self-storage units are climate controlled and range in size from 25 square-foot spaces that can hold about 50 file boxes to 300-square-foot units equipped to store cars and small boats that haven’t yet learned to swim. Boxes, packing supplies, and locks are also available for purchase.
Amazing Glaze makes it simple for amateur artisans and ceramic virtuosos to produce colorful pottery pieces using a variety of stencils, stamps, and tracing outlines. Start by choosing your desired paint-vessel from a vast selection of more than 400 ceramic compositions ($3–$50), including coffee mugs and dinner plates to adorn kitchens and vases to grow your pet panda's bamboo snacks in. Pick a design from the store's volumes of sample books or enlarge a wallet-sized photo of your homecoming date on the studio's copy machine, select from more than 100 colors, and then create a design for your earthenware masterpiece. For the artistically stymied, on-staff artists will be standing by to assist with the pigmenting process. Glazing, firing, and brilliantly hued paints are included in the $7 per hour studio fee (caps off at $12/day), and polished objects are ready five days later.
Though now stationed behind the camera, Melissa Jewel's fascination with photography began in front of the lens. Drawing on her posing experience, the former model strives to maintain a laid-back atmosphere during every shoot. To help achieve this, Melissa hosts sessions snaps a mixture of posed and candid pictures at comfortable locations, which can range from a family's favorite park to her own professional photography studio. In addition to family and boudoir portraits, Melissa accommodates pets, couples, expectant moms, and newborns, whom she photographs when they're eight-weeks old, five- to eight-months old, and one-years old. All of her sessions result in CDs full of edited images, all of which include full printing rights.
Mr. Powerwash’s licensed and insured team restores homes and commercials properties by blasting away mold and grime and refinishing exteriors with sealant and painting services. The crew carefully adjusts the pressure of its power-washing equipment to clean decks and play sets without washing the neighbor’s second-story housecat. Once the technicians scour wooden patios and fences, they brush on staining varnish to protect and prolong the life of all wooden surfaces. Never subcontracted, Mr. Powerwash’s painters coat homes and businesses in fresh pigment, and protect garage floors with epoxy paints. They can even tackle projects as large as parking garages or as small as the removal of graffiti from an Easter egg.
Understanding that power washing can help customers as well as the surrounding community, the team enacted and continues to participate in Clean Across Harford County, a program that calls for free power washing of local eyesores. Additionally, for every $199 wash they execute, they donate $10 to Operation Smile, a program dedicated to helping children in third-world countries with cleft lips.

The licensed and insured techs at Deck Renew construct outdoor platforms out of redwood, Ipe, and composite materials. When confronted with careworn decks, they restore weathered and dry-rotted boards by shielding them with an environmentally friendly sealer and an invisible force field, which they back with an eight-year warranty. Techs also power-wash surfaces to expel mold, bacteria, and mildew—microscopic life forms that can cause allergies. When they aren't breathing new life into decks, they remodel kitchens and nurture gazebos, fences, retaining walls, and walkways.
