5QF ~ 4/15/2011

Tax Day!!!!  Mine are going in the mail today.   Are yours already done?  We owed this year, and so waited till the end to send the money in. 

1. What is your favorite sign of spring?  All the flowers and blossoming trees.  We were out playing last night {Ms. Diva was playing, Ms. T and I were supervising}, and it was such a nice evening.  Ms. Diva figured out that the bucket would go on her head like hat.  That was like looking at a picture of my 30-something years ago. 

2. What was your best birthday ever?  Birthday’s have never been that great for me, but… The birthday before Ms. Diva was born my whole family {Grandpa, Parents, and Mr. SD} went in on a camcorder for me.  That was pretty special.

Though I still remember my Grandma bringing me balloons for my sixteenth b-day.  That was super special.

3. What is your favorite dessert?  Anything chocolate!  I also like anything with sugar ~ Strawberry Shortcake, Cake, etc.  Ice cream is also a great dessert.  Ice cream cake is the da’ bomb!

4. What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?  No such luck here.  Never gotten ‘out’ of a ticket.  Therefore I work on not speeding.  Novel idea, huh?

5. Do you wake up before your alarm, with your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?  Geesh… let’s see I have posted many times about issues with procrastination.  Does that apply to getting up in the morning too?  Yup, I will go with door number three ~ after hitting the snooze several times.
Linking up with:


  1. My husband has already done our taxes. He gets funny about when he does them. He hates waiting until the last minute. I with you on anything chocolate.

  2. Leaving some <3 from 5 ? Friday! New follower! Happy Friday!

  3. Taxes are done long ago - we always have $100 extra taken out of our taxes a month to cover those pay in's - this year was our first year we didn't have to pay and got most of our money back - a mega nice treat. I wake up before the alarm. Love the trees in the spring.
    My Dad was a police officer and the thing he taught me was to be honest and that's the best way to get out of a ticket - in fact most officers will hand out tickets just because people try to talk out of a ticket.
    I don't do desserts as a norm. My best birthday - haven't had it yet but sure am looking forward to it...

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…
