Five Question Friday - 7/2/10



1. What is one thing you miss the most about childhood?  The freedom to take time and dream without limitations.  My little girl is constantly showing me how you can be in absolute wonder over the simplest things.  Like her little hand, LOL.  That sense of wonder I miss.  Plus, being able to eat anything and everthing and not gain an ounce!


2. Are you still friends with your friends from high school?  No, I have friends still from church, but not from school.  Facebook is a great invention to stay connected to old friends.

3. Is there a catch phrase, cliche, or word that just drives you bonkers every time you hear it?  Currently it's any variation of, "it must be horrible to pregnant during the summer".  Okay, folks this is my second, it wasn't bad with the first, I am sure it won't be bad with this one.  It's called dress for the heat!!!!!  Okay - that is off my chest, LOL!

4. What is one thing that you think symbolizes America...besides "Old Glory"?  Our troops in uniform.  They and their families have given so much over the centuries to create and keep this country of ours free.  People tend to overlook that without war and death we would not have the freedom of speech we have today.

5. What are your 4th of July weekend plans?  Good old Texas BBQ cookout!  Back to eating for two, and gaining every ounce to show it, LOL!

  10. I'm laughing. My son is going to be 24 next month which means I was pregnant the summer of '86. Eek, right?

    Being pregnant in the summer was the best. I wore my husband's big shirts (it was the 80s), I wore sundresses, and I didn't have to squeeze into winter coats--or not.

    Loved every minute of it!

    Blessings to you!

    Your blog is so full of creative ideas...my last name IS Stewart, but my first is not Martha. I envy your gifts!

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href=http://www.YourBlogAddress.com/ }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

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…
