Five Question Friday - 8/20/2010

1. Do you have any nicknames and if so how did it come about?  Not now, but as a kiddo I had the nickname Chip (as in Allen and the Chipmunks).  I had very chubby cheeks,which Ms. Diva has inherited.  I wonder if she will be called Chip at any point, LOL!

2. What is your birth order amongst your siblings?  I am the oldest of my brother and I.

3. In a movie of your life, who would play your significant other?  Do I have to choose?  I would say a younger Robert Redford.  Not for the looks, but because whenever I see him in a movie he always makes me think of Mr. SD in his quiet but sharp way of playing out a character.

4. What is currently your favorite song?  East to West by Casting Crowns.  The link is to a previous post that includes the YouTube video.  This song is a wonderful inspiration of just how much God loves each and everyone of us.

5. Are you saving your money for anything right now? Big or small purchase?  We are saving for a house.  Definitely a big purchase.  We have land in the family that we will build on so we just have to save up for the house.  Besides crafts and babies, I would have to say my third obsession is looking at house floor plans!
I Owe it All to Him's friday question is... Do you collect anything?  To go with the above question we have several floor plan books, but mostly I collect craft stuff.  I have boxes up in the attic (due to no true crafting space in the cottage), and I loathe going up there to find what I need.  But... most of the time I can find it!
I have finished the entire set of burp clothes I started last week (yipee!).  They are in the wash, and I will be taking pics once they get ironed out again.  Four of them are already spoken for as baby gifts, and now I need to get my rear end going on the next twelve.  But first I need to get some fun holiday fabric so I can start stocking up for the three, count 'em three, holiday craft fairs I am doing this November and December.
Linking up with these fun Link Parties:

  1. Hi Kimberlee,
    Thank you so much for linking this up! I know just what you mean about collecting craft items...and it takes up so much space! I admire you for going to the attic to get it...I don't know what I'd do if it wasn't on hand only because I use it every day...(I'm sure you saw my complete "art rehab" in progress.) That was about me trying to make space for it But, there are so many things we can't make unless we own them, so what choice do we have?
    Wow, I am wishing you luck on the fairs you are great! And I hope it is fun and successful for you!

  2. What a wonderful collection, one of my favorite things. I linked up too. Please drop by

  3. I love looking at floor plans too and decorating books!

    You'll have that new home before you know it.

  4. Wow! An impressive goal for the busy holiday time and how fun it all sounds. I'm just starting to think of Fall and making plans for everything from fall activities for my grand kids and me to Autumn songs - real and ones I make up. But Christmas is next in my thoughts, and I'm appreciating the inspiration. Thank you for a delightful visit.

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…
