Laptops for Schools by Charter

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.

With the beginning of the school year starting this month, now is a great time to nominate your school for the chance to win free laptops through Charter Communications for this school year.  Charter Communications is a Fortune 500 company that offers Phone, Cable, and Internet services to 27 states as the fourth largest cable provider in the US.  Chart is always having fabulous giveaways (past giveaways have been: a Camaro, hybrid car, XBox 360's), and this time they are giving back to the community as part of their Back-To-School Campaign.

Go to this link: Laptops for Schools to enter your school!  Start the entry process by entering your zip code and the school you would like to nominate for the 50 (count them fifty) laptops!  Write a short essay/story on why you feel your school deserves these laptops, and your entry is complete.  Schools have to be nominated by August 12th to be eligible for this giveaway!  50 finalists will be chosen from the stories, and then these 50 schools will be announced on August 16th.  Voting will be used to decide which of these schools will get the two spots in the giveaway.  So, encourage your family and friends to get voting as soon as the 50 schools are announced!  The two schools that receive the most votes will be announced on September 27th, and then receive the laptops. 

Charter also offers you the opportunity to be automatically entered in the laptop-a-day giveaway for yourself when you order any service online at, and you can receive up to $300 back with their special bundle offers!  You can also enter the laptop-a-day giveaway on-line with no purchase necessary.

You can keep up-to-date with Charter by checking them out at Charter on Facebook.

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?
