It could be just me, but I think it’s much easier to learn how to do something by watching a video (even it is’s a short one). For instance, making your own custom book seems like it would be really complicated, but then you watch a video walking you through it and it becomes pretty understandable. Here’s a quick video from Blurb (less than 3 minutes) that quickly walks you through publishing your own book using their BookSmart tool—sort of a book making boot camp. Save 15% off photobooks which is great news if you’re thinking ahead to the holidays and making a gift to send. New customers save 20% off photobooks at Blurb with code SEPT20%… even better for those of you who are new to Blurb books. Just don’t wait because these deals end October 31st.

Cleaning Your Carpet the Green Way

Cleaning Your Carpet the Green Way

Screenshot 2014-06-09 08.47.12.png

Homeowners are always looking for ways to get their homes clean and sparkling. It may be for a special event being held in your home, or you may simply want to do some extra cleaning in the spring and fall. To get your home truly clean and bright, an annual carpet cleaning is usually recommended. Carpets can get filled with dirt, grime and germs from high traffic, especially when people are walking in an out with shoes on. A professional carpet cleaning can help your carpets look and feel newer than before.
The concern for many carpeting cleaning customers is that harsh chemicals may be used in the cleaning process. There are green choice carpet cleaning processes available, and if you are concerned with your family’s home environment, you will want to find a carpet professional that can provide these green solutions for you.

The green carpeting cleaning solution removes all of the harsh chemicals from the process so that they are not in your home or in the environment. These alternative cleaning methods provide an all-natural solution that is non-toxic to people and pets.
The green cleaning solutions do not have to stop at your wall-to-wall carpeting either. Professionals who offer green cleaning solutions for the carpet in your home will also offer green cleaning solutions for area rugs, upholstery, mattresses and commercial carpeting.

Whether you are doing a routine cleaning or need to have specific stains removed, the green solution can help you stay safe in your home and help protect the environment at the same time.
While you are getting all of these areas cleaned, you may also want to consider a duct cleaning. This can help reduce the amount of dirt and dust getting into your home and getting your carpets dirty. This type of cleaning can also be approached in a green way, keeping all of the industry standard harsh chemicals out of your air vents and out of your lungs.
There are safer solutions for your professional cleaning needs. If you are interested in a local service that provides green cleaning solutions for your carpets and upholstery, places like Green Choice Carpet Cleaning can fill your needs for a clean, environmentally friendly home.

Impressions of Keyhani

Impressions of Keyhani
(sponsored post)
Mostafa Keyhani is an extraordinary painter. Drawing from the Impressionist tradition, his work is alive with color and texture as he uses thin washes, areas of bare canvas, and thick impasto to impart an expression of organic life. While his paintings fetch high prices in galleries across the United States and Canada, his self-published books give each of his fans a chance to own his art. Keyhani is a Canadian resident born in Iran, and has had a journey as fantastic as his art. In this video,  Blurb captures a glimpse at Keyhani’s remarkable creative process. Perhaps it will inspire you to make your own book with Blurb.

3. Include a photo. All patterns must have at least one photo to accompany them, but you can add up to five photos. Colorful, interesting photos tend to work the best for catching our members’ eyes!
