Weekend Wrap - 10/11/2010

I spent most of this weekend working on my Etsy shop.  There are two new items listed (Holiday Toilet Paper and Letter Fobs).  Both make fun gifts for the everyone on your list!  I will be adding more fabric choices for the Letter Fobs over the coming weeks.

I also added gift certificates for both $10 and for Stay-Put Towel Pairs.  I personalized a free template from Gift-Certificate-Templates.  To get the 'image' I uploaded into Etsy I uploaded the text document into PDF form, opened in Adobe, used the snapshot tool to select the gift certificate, then copied and pasted that image into Paint and saved as a jpeg.  Just a few steps (LOL), but I am very happy with how the gift certificates turned out!

I feel very accomplished to have gotten all these items listed.  One of the hardest things to get done for me is getting the item photos taken.  But... my personal cheerleader is always cheering from the sidelines! 

PS - she walked across the living room today!!!!  Then decided that crawling was still best, LOL!  I can't believe she is turning one this coming Saturday.  Where did this past year go?

Notice the NE Cornhuskers blanket?  Mr. SD can't stop telling everyone about their win this past Thursday, LOL!  I think he is just gearing up for this comming NE vs UT game.  Should be an interesting church service next Sunday.

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…
