Easy Curtains Blog

The Easy Curtains Blog lets you know where there is something new happening on the site. Such as..... 

When there are new webpages about new curtain stuff we are up to, or new "how to" videos, tips and advice. Sometimes I just feel an older really important article is not getting the attention it deserves. So I show it off again here so you can catch it second time around.

It lets you know when I send out the easy curtains newsletter (in case you don't like to give your e-mail address, or if your ISP tends to over-filter causing you to miss an issue). To subscribe to my easycurtains blog (no e-mail address necessary), RIGHT-click on the orange RSS button and then copy-and-paste the URL of this site's RSS feed into your RSS reader.  OR...  

Or click on the Google, My Yahoo!,  My MSN, or Bloglines button if you keep a personalized home page there. Follow their instructions.
