What Every Woman Needs...

If you have one of those little "Girl Tool Sets" this post is for you.  You know the little kit that has a hammer, screw drivers, and some other stuff you probably won't ever use.  Let me tell you a secret.  Something that they guys have known for years.  Power tools rock! 

The only thing I use around the house (other than a hammer) is my power screwdriver.  You can buy a set of bits to go with it (you notice that mine is labeled so it doesn't accidently migrat to my husband's shop) and do anything you would normally put on the Honey-Do List.

Here is an example of how this little tool can change your life.  We have a plastic trash can that has no air holes under the handles, and so the trash bags just bubble up when you put trash in.  This is something that drives me nuts, and I tend to put a small hole in the bag so it doesn't do this.

Well... how about making little holes in the side so that the air has a place to go?  No there is a thought, LOL!  So, out comes my screwdriver and bit set.  I put the smallest drill bit on the screwdriver.  And I quickly make little holes in the trash can. 

See how nice this looks?

Now here is why I bring this up now.  Father's Day is just around the corner in June.  Has the man in your life mentioned wanting a power tool?  If so look around for a deal that includes this power screwdriver with the purchase of a power tool.  Then you get the power screwdriver, and the guy can have the power tool!  We got mine last Father's Day from Sears, and it has been worth every penny we didn't spend.

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
