Blogelina has one of the best blogging classes out there. Her 4-week beginners blogging class is a perfect start for anyone who wants to step into the wonderful world of blogging. I have taken this class myself, and the 60 page manual that you receive from Tanya is priceless if you are wanting to start a blog from beginning to end, or how to monetize the blog that you already have. I keep my manual right by my side for easy access when I need to find resources, or review the many notes that I took while taking the class.
This online class is held periodically, so sign up for her e-mail and you will be notified when the next class is available. Also, if you can’t make the scheduled class times, it’s ok, because the notes will be sent to you by e-mail! 🙂
Check out what you get when you sign up for the class:
* A class manual – packed with 60 pages of information that will help take the overwhelming out of starting your own blog
* 4 weekly online class sessions where you can ask your questions and get personalized feedback
* A FREE year of web hosting.
* Blueprints, step-by-step tutorials, networking with other bloggers – Everything you need to grow your blog.

I can’t believe how fast this summer season has flown by, and although I am still growing veggies in my backyard garden, it’s time to switch gears and get ready for the fall season. I have a few projects that I have lined up: decorating the front of my home with some autumn flair, turning some furniture finds from drab to fab, and hopefully tiling my personal bathroom floor. (that’s only if I can get this darn cam-walker boot off of my foot, it’s driving me nuts)! I have been looking on Pinterest, Hometalk, and several other home decor sites for different DIY projects that are budget friendly and add a little something unique to my home.
So, first on my agenda is painting some furniture pieces that I have acquired, so I signed up for an online class called:
Drab To Fab Furniture Upcycling at Craftsy.com
Last fall I painted the below computer cabinet from a dull, ugly, brown to a beautiful cream color. I am really pleased with how it turned out, and of course the savings that I racked up by not having to buy something new.
Re-painted Computer Cabinet
But now, I currently have a few antique pieces of furniture that I want to paint, and bring out the details just like the pros do. The Drab To Fab Furniture Upcycling Class teaches decorative painting methods such as faux finishing, distressing, crackling, using stencil, stripe and tape techniques. I can’t tell you how many times I have found some old furniture pieces at garage sales and thrift stores and wished that I would have had the skills to re-finish them into master creations. 🙂
As I begin to start on my re-do & re-new furniture projects, I promise to show you my before and after pictures, and if any of you decide to take the furniture upcycling class, please let me know, because I would love to see what masterpieces you come up with. Also, there are a ton of Craftsy classes on sale right now, in fact the class that I just signed up for was only $9.99. 🙂 I look forward to sharing all of my upcoming fall projects, and hope that all of you continue to find DIY ways to save.
