Five Question Friday - 6/18/10

1. What is your favorite thing about summertime?
My favorite summertime thing is... that the pools are open, BBQ, 4th of July, Western Days (a really fun craft fair here in Elgin, TX), and time spent with family!

2. What is your ideal retirement location (if money didn't matter)?
Right here in central Texas.  Would love to have 50 acres on lake front or with it's own little lake.  Texans are crazy about their waterfront.  Of course, retirement would include international travel to fun locals!

3. Do you live in the same town you grew up in?
Nope.  Was a navy brat, but grew up mostly outside of Seattle, WA.  Definitly not anywhere close to Texas, LOL!

4. What nervous habit did you have as a child that you kicked to the curb before becoming an adult?
Lack of mouth control.  Seriously, I am a serious blutter.  It is a little better as an adult, but I still work at it everyday.  The worst part is when I get nervous and say stuff that I don't mean and that is hurtful to others.

5. What is the most embarrassing thing that happened to you while on the job?
Crying on the job.  My second job here in Texas was not fun.  The manager was horrible (not an exageration) and I never felt like I could do anything right.  Not a fun situation for a perfectionist.
Those are my answers to this Friday's questions.  Wonder if this should become an every Friday "thang"? 

Everyone have a fabulous weekend, and stay safe!


  1. Im still awaiting mouth control! I just cant help but comment sometimes

  2. Aww, mouth control. It is a hard task, I always seem to somehow put my foot in my mouth. lol.

    Stopped in from 5QF, have a great weekend!

  3. Following you back!
    Where outside Seattle did you grow up? We're in Bellevue now...not my favorite, but I grew up out in the Hobart/Maple Valley area. Much more my style with the space! And I'm a blurter too...I'm horrible, I talk nonstop when I'm nervous, uncomfortable, pretty much all the time :)

    Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

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…
