Weekend Wrap - 8/23/2010

~ 15 ~

Fifteen Keyfobs with Pocket are now complete!  I told you I wasn't sure how many I would end up with after a weekend alone with my new design from Five Star Fonts, LOL!  Here are pics.  Check out the new look.  I am working on getting a "better/more consistent" style to my finished product photos.  What do you think of how these photos turned out?
{UT keyfob is for a friend, the "K" is to go with my purse set.}

{The "B" is for a friend at work, "C" for Kasey's Mom, "K" is for a childhood friend}

I just adore the swirl fabric of the "K" keyfob, but only found the one fat quarter.  I have a matching burp cloth that I may just keep for myself to use with this next bundle of joy.

These next ones are up for grabs, and I will be posting them on my Artfire site shortly.

Bloopers from the "photo shoot":

I will be posting some crafting time tips later this week.  Get the most out of your crafting time by following these simple steps.  Whether it is children, or a full-time job, we never seem to have enough time to get all the crafts we want to get done completed.

Question of the Week: Do you have sweet memories, or memories of terror from your first days back to school?  I never did quite fit in at school.  Many times the first days of school were just filled with figuring out how to keep my head down and staying out of the way.  I am one of those that are very happy that their school days are long gone.

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= }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…
