Build a Custom Office Desk to Suit Your Individual Style

When you work from home, having a comfortable and pretty work space is important.  But you may not want to spend a lot of money or you may not have a lot of space to work with. This was my dilemma.

3 Fast and Easy Ways to Invite People to like your Facebook page

Increasing your Likes on your Business Facebook page can feel like a lot of work if you’re not sure what to do.

In this blog, I’ll be sharing 3 ways you can ask people from your personal profile (and their friend) to like your page right from your phone and your computer.

The only way you can get people to like your page is by inviting them to do so. On your personal page, you are asking people to be your friend and you are only allowed 5,000 friends on that page. As for your business page, you are asking people to like your page and you can have an unlimited number of likes. But how do you get people to like your page?

Update your ceiling fan with style using contact paper from the Dollar Tree for just $1.00

A creative, inexpensive way to update your ceiling fan – in just a few simple steps

I really didn’t like the dark brown fan blades, but; I liked the fan with the lights and didn’t want to spend the money replacing it.  I can do a lot of things but replacing a fan is not one of them. I’m not an electrician. So, instead of having the fan replace I decided to do something creative on the fan blades to blend in with the rest of my home décor.

So, I’m going to show you a quick fix that you can do and save you a few dollars as well.
