A New Striped Shower Curtain

So I am totally into stripes these days! Can't get enough of them! I've seen a few other blogs where they used stripes on rugs, curtains and dressers. I thought I could find some fabric I likes and could sew some up. Well... I'm very frugal... I don't like to spend a lot of money on things that I may already have, haha! Anyway, I remembered that I had a plain white twin flat sheet that we used when we had the other beds up. Well, here is what I came up with...

Here is the before... not bad, I'm just over it!!! I really wanted something taller!

Here is my sheet during the lines. I just taped the lines on as I went. Very easy and NOT perfect!

Here it is just after I hung it. I just cut holes in the top for the curtain rings to fit. You could use clips, but this is what I already had!

Not the best pictures, but I used a red ribbon as a tie back and I LOVE it! I've had so many compliments on it already... who knew only a twin sheet and some paint!!!

Merry Christmas from our Family to Yours!

Well I've added some fun pics of my family from Christmas!

Here we are putting food out for the reindeers to find our house! Notice we are all barefoot or wearing socks only!

On Christmas evening it started snowing...

The next morning... this is what our yard looked like! Very unusual for Georgia!

My kids were in HEAVEN! My husband, brother in law, grown sisters and my mother were too, but I'll spare them and you from their pics!!!

What an awesome Christmas we had here in Georgia!!! I hope yours was just as great! I'll be posting some new project after the new year! Back to enjoying time with my family!!!

I'm BACK!!!

Hello everyone, it seems like it's been FOREVER! I did abandon my blog for a little bit, life just got in the way. I am sorry to those of you who were following me. I would like to show you all what I've been up to lately... I've started making pillowcase dresses and selling them! My daughter and her friends LOVE them so I thought other little ones would enjoy them too. I opened an Etsy account and listed them! We will see how it goes, but I'm excited and I love making them. I'm actually going to also make some ladies tops and list them! Let me know if any of you are interested, I'm always open to custom orders too!

Anyway, here they are...
