Five Question Friday - 2/11/2011

1. Would you rather be on ABC's Extreme Home MakeOver or TLC's What not to Wear?
Let's see... New home or clothes?  Definitely the new home!!!  Plus I adore Ty, and would love to meet him.  And a new house?  Sign me up!

I would love to be on almost any HGTV show too.  I am not picky, LOL!

2. Do you have any tattoos? 
Nope.  I have a thing against self-imposed pain.  I had a hard enough time getting my years pierced, LOL.  Though I have contemplated a small butterfly before, but wussed out before going through with it.  Plus, I couldn't see spending $80 on something that would be a painful experience.

3. Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up? 
Not really.  It is hard to tell a 16-month-old and a 3-week-old life stories, LOL.  I most likely will as they get older though.

4. If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up? 
If I am far away enough to stop, I will stop.  I am constantly amazed at people who run red lights.  Makes me wonder how safe it is to be the first car across an intersection on green.

5. What's your preference: chocolate or chips? 
Anything chocolate works for me!

PS - I edited Ms. Diva's picture with Picnik to add the 'watermark'.  Picnik was much faster for editing the photos I tested than Photobucket has been lately. 


  1. I don't have any tatoos, either...I think we're in the minority!

    Happy Friday!

  2. I don't have any tattoos, either...Never wanted any. i'm not into pain. And the amount you have to pay for pain I'll pass.

  3. Thanks for stopping by!! Yeah, the m&m/popcorn pic kinda did me in too!! :)

    Really cute blog! Looking forward to reading more of your blog and about your babies!

    Happy Friday!

  4. Oh that don't hurt that much! Ok my husband thinks they do but maybe I have a higher pain tolerance.

  5. Thanks for stopping by!!

    I am a new follower (back)!!!

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…
