What if there was Netflix for books?

{While this post is not specifically sponsored by BookSwim, the link button I have added to my sidebar is.  Since I had never heard of BookSwim I thought an explanatory post was in order to let you know about this company's services.  Thank you for reading!}

There is, and I just found out about it Tuesday!!!  It's No late fees, paid postage to return the books, new releases, easy catalog system, and plans that let you have three to seven books at a time.  What more could you ask for?  (If you have an answer to that, make sure to let me know what more you could want in the comments section.) 

Wouldn't this make a great gift for that book worm in your life, or for yourself?  PS - they are doing a big promotion for giving the gift of books at their site (keeping in line with the Christmas theme, LOL).  If you give someone a $70 or larger gift membership you will receive a $50 gift card to a restaurant.  I am definitely looking at getting my mom a gift card so she can try this out for herself.  Since we moved out here to the middle of nowhere (which we love, don't get me wrong) she has been making comments about how the library system out here is not nearly as good as the King County Library System she used to have access too.  I think this would be the perfect solution for her! has a very in depth FAQ Page with answers to almost any question you could think of.  This includes questions about books lost in the mail, damaged books, how easy is it to cancel, etc.

Check them out, and let me know what you think!

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?
