Like most bloggers out there, I am always looking for ways to grow and learn as a blogger. I like trying new things, whether it be in blog design, social media, or challenging myself in my writing. There is always a sense of accomplishment when I finally get the hang of something new - like the time it took me two hours of being buried in my HTML to figure out the picture flipping-thing in this post. Seriously, how fun is that!!!!??? The picture flipping-thing I mean, not the two hours of HTML. :)

That is one of the main reason I am so excited about the blogging books offered in the Ultimate Homemaking eBook bundle.




There are some fabulous books here that I didn't even know existed before the bundle, and I can't wait to …

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle - 78 eBooks are 95% off, starting today!!

Tomorrow is the release of the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle. I can't wait for you to get your hands on this fantastic resource!

This bundle includes:


There are 78 eBooks, plus 10 bonus offers that include free products. Just the free products alone add up to a total value of $197.45, and you get all that plus 78 eBooks for less than $30!!

You may wonder if it is worth it to purchase this bundle. After all, these authors are also bloggers and the information in the book is all from their blogs, right? WRONG! We've been discussing this on our FB group with the authors, and they've assured us (and our readers) that these books are full of new content...in fact, this bundle is the ONLY way you can get some of these books!

Here is a run-down of things you need to know for tomorrow:

Re-Upholstering a Large Armchair

Image
Over the winter my aunt enlisted my help for a pretty big, new-to-both-of-us project: re-upholstering her large, well-loved chair!


I had read several tutorials about re-upholstery, and I brushed up on what I'd heard before starting this project. Every chair is so different, however, so there was no guarantee that our "after" was going to work. Yikes! We really didn't know what we would find once we started pulling things apart, but there is only one way to find out, right? :)

Here is the almost before picture: As you can see I had started pulling the fabric off the back, and the cushions are gone. The arms, however, show you how badly this chair needed some TLC!


I'm going to walk you through our process, and share some tips we learned along the way. Just remember, no two chairs are created equal, and our methods may not work in every circumstance.

We started on the bottom of the chair. The very bottom was covered with a black interfacing (similar to this from Joann F…
