Five Question Friday - 11/19/2010

1. What Christmas song do you loathe?  I absolutely loathe I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.  I don't know why, but all the versions I seem to hear have an overly squeaky female singing it, and it just drives me nuts!
2. Do you and your significant other cuddle at night or sleep on opposite sides of the bed?  Opposite sides of the bed with our own covers.  We both like wrapping up in our blankets, and so separate blankets keeps the peace.
3. Have you ever had surgery?  I have had two major surgeries, and will be having a c-section in January since Ms. T is coming so close to Ms. Diva. 
4. When do you typically have your holiday shopping done?  Normally I tend to be a last minute shopper, but this year I am actually getting it done ahead of time!
5. If money were not an issue (and you HAD to pick something), what would your ultimate luxury item be?  I want a house.  Lots of square footage.  Bought and paid for so I can stay-at-home and keep it clean and play with the kiddos.

Speaking of kiddos... here are a couple of photos from my last towel photo shot.  Can you guess what my biggest obstacle was?

In case you missed it... I made Ms. Diva a Lovie Blankie from an old silk shirt of mine, and minkie fabric she fell in love with at Joann's.  Check out this short how-to of using a silk shirt for a blankie!

I also got the proof for a set of stamps I am getting from My Rubber Stamp.  What do you think?  Personally I am in love with it!!!!!!

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?
