Five Question Friday - 9/17/2010

Before we get to the questions...
... here are some pictures of my prep of the new pop-up tent for the craft show Saturday.

Here is an artsy shot of my pennant banner that I finished earlier this summer.

My favorite piece of furniture from Ikea.  It has been three different colors, and will soon be painted again to coordinate with the booth color scheme more effectively.

Teal sheets that are up for a balloon affect, but can be let down for sun shade depending on the wind.
And now for the full effect.

I can't wait to see it with the table skirts and merchandise set-up on Saturday!  And of course, Ms. Diva supervised it all.

And she looses it, LOL!

Now onto the Five Questions for this Friday from My Little Life.

1. What is the first nightmare you remember?  I remember having a very vivid (I remember it was vivid, but don't remember it vividly, LOL) nightmare about Darth Vader after watching Star Wars for the first time.  I think it had something to do with the scene were Luke's hand is 'removed' and goes banging done into nothingness.  Okay, maybe I do remember more of that than I should, LOL!!!

2. Even if you're not a sports fan, what's your favorite sport to play/watch?  I am a big horse nut.  So, pretty much anything with horses in it I will watch.  One of my favorites right now of RFD is the Royal Fair from England.  They show all kinds of events with horses, and also other types of events (i.e. dog herding, cows, etc.).  I will also watch endless hours of Dog Agility Trials.  PS - does taking a nap while hubby watches NASCAR count as watching?  The nap is on the couch in front of the television.

3. If you could pull off one piece of trendy fashion, what would you want it to be (jeggings, hats, thigh high boots, etc.)?  Any fashion statement would work for me.  Personally I have been thinking a pair of jeggings under a fun maternity top (that covers the buttocks) would be kinda cute.  Who can make fun of a pregnant woman?

4. Did you make good grades in school?  Over achiever that I am, do you have any doubt I made good grades in school?  I tend to be obsessive, and for school that definitely extended to my grades.  My two year community college degree came with a 3.8 gpa.

5. What magazines do you subscribe to?  Practical Horseman (I even have issues that my mom collected from over twenty years ago!), and Parenting (but I am still in the free year on that).
This weeks question from Cindy at I Owe It All To Him is: Who is ONE person you personally know who has inspired you so much in your life and why?  I would have to say my mom.  I have always wanted to be just like her.  Which doesn't mean that I don't get pissy at her or argue with her.  But, I love that she is here in Texas now, and I love being so close even when we aren't getting along the best.  Who else would put up with me, and still make me make decisions about me booth for this Saturday?  (PS - I know you are going to read this, but it really is true and not just me sucking up big time, LOL!)

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…
