Five Question Friday, 9/24/2010

Another week has flown by!  It is almost October and time for our trip to visit family and friends in WA State.  I am very excited, but have a lot to get done this next week, not to mention this weekend!  I have been busy with the Etsy store, and have many items just waiting to be listed.  The sun has not been keeping up it's part of the bargain this week, and so I am hoping to get some final item photos and do some major listing before our trip.  Here are just a couple items I am waiting to get the final pictures of before listing at .

If you missed this week's guest post, take a moment and check it out!  Jen's (from Frugal Invitation) post was on how to make the best use of store coupons.  A topic most of us could always use some help with!  I am looking for several guest posts to use over the next month.  If you have a tutorial or how-to post that you would like to have featured here on The Spunky Diva, send me an e-mail at .  I would love to check it out!

I got a rush of inspiration at Thursday's Sewing club.  Plus, I picked up suede for the soles of baby boots, a new-to-me fabric remnant, several spools of thread (in my defense they were 50% off), a new blind-hem foot (after my last one literally fell apart, LOL), etc.  And now I have got a big weekend in store!  I am going to tackle 3 or 4 projects: including my shirt remake, making Ms. Diva a pair of baby boots for the trip to WA, and finally making the butterfly skirt I keep planning.  Plus, I need to finish several gifts to that I want to take and give out on our trip.  Wish me luck, and check back for pictures!

1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?  I would love to have one of those upper class English accents.  Like how the royalty talks.  Not to thick, but enough to know where I come from.  This coming from one that can't ever understand people with thick accents, LOL!

2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)  Pretty much.  I love to take a good nap.  However, I have a hard time falling asleep on a plane.

3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?  I do sit down on the toilet.  Sometimes the toilet has not been the cleanest, so I didn't sit, but for the most part I am a sitter.

4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?  Not sure on this one.  Would love to ask Gordon Ramsey about cooking, but... that would be kinda of a waste since everything he answered would most likely be way over my nonexistent cooking level.

5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date?  To an Apologetix concert.  One of the funnest concerts I have ever been too!

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…
