Passing along the Beautiful Blogger Award


The time has come to pass along my Beautiful Blogger award I received from Mommas Kinda Crafty.  Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.

2. Share 10 things about yourself.

3. Pass the award along to bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!

4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

I thanked Joy, so now onto the ten things about ME!

1.  I love to craft (that you had probably guessed), but tend to drive my hubby and myself nuts over all the different types of crafts I try (needle point, knitting, spinning, jewelry making, etc.).

2.  I have ridden horses since I was 6 months old (that ride was of course with someone else).  We currently have three horses, and are searching for Ms. Diva's first pony.

3.  I grew up outside of Seattle in a little dot on the map called Maple Valley, and moved to Austin, Texas in 2003.  We are now living outside of Austin, and I am very happy to be back in the middle of nowhereville.

4.  I plan on homeschooling Ms. Diva and the one on-the-way.  I have a hard time putting faith in a school system that is overburdened and scorns my faith and the beliefs that we as a family have.

5.  I started blogging this year, and am completely hooked on it.  I am a complete addict.

6.  I adore craft fairs!!!  Having my own booth just makes sense, because it gives me a "good" reason to spend all day at the craft fair, LOL.

7.  If I had to choose between coffee and life, I would choose coffee.  Seriously, there are just some things that life without wouldn't be worth it.  Crafting would be the second thing I could not live without.

8.  I play violin (this is kinda cheating since I shared it on a Five Question Friday).

9.  I type really fast (90 wpm at 98% accuracy).  My 10-key is even faster (the little keypad to the right of your keyboard), but I am one of those freaky people who can type numbers in a sentence with the numbers at the top of the keyboard without slowing down.

10.  (Thank you Lord this is the last one)  My current obsession is children's items, and figuring out how to make stuff from sewing patterns.  I am still stuck in terror trying to do this skirt.

So, now that you know 10 more things about me, check out these "Beautiful Bloggers"!

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…
