    This weekend me and my girlfriend Stephanie finally got around to adding some decorations to our cottage here in California. It took us a while to get around to it and honestly I wasn't nearly as excited as Stephanie was to get them up and I didn't really even think that the things that we were adding could make that much of a difference. But, once we got them all hung up and set up the way that Stephanie wanted, I was blown away by how much it added to our place - it was a huge home improvement.
    my girlfriend was excited to finally get these up(obviously)

    So, since I was inspired by finally getting around to our housework this weekend I figured that there are plenty of other people out there wanting to know how to spice up their homes a bit as well. This is why I selected the weekly HubMob topic this week as Home Improvement, Restorations and Decorations. Whether it's where to buy the best furniture, how to paint a living room or the most amazing lamps to use in your bathroom, I figured that we all have some type of expertise and experience on how to fix up where we live. So when you get a chance, think of a good topic and get to writing because it's HubMob time!

    To join this week's HubMob, please follow the steps below:

    1. Come up with an amazing idea to write your Hub on that has something to do with the topic of Home Improvement, Restorations and Decorations. Make the topic your own and feel free to have fun with it, research it or wing it. It's up to you on how you write your HubMob Hub.

    2. After you come up with your topic idea, click this link and answer the Request that I entered in for all of you HubMobsters. Feel free to use the tags that I suggested or add a few of your own.

    3. Write a an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea. Be sure to add an RSS Capsule that includes the RSS feed to the rest of this week's HubMob entries (Link: and also add one of the HubMob images below to your Hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.

    4. After you publish your HubMob Hub, reply in this Forum thread with a brief description of what topic idea you wrote about, why you chose it and a link to your newly published contribution to the HubMob. I mean, we all want to see, too!

    5. Keep track of your Hub and keep us updated on any traffic that you're getting and post some screenshots if you end up HubMobbing a few search keyword over on Google.
