Easy Peasy Curtains!

I just finished my first curtain project and I was so excited as to how easy it was! I need to give a big shout out to THRIFTY DECOR CHICK she provided the fabulous and easy instructions. I can't wait to try out so more of her ideas! Please go by her site and check this project out


And now for the curtain call:

This is the curtain down, which is what i really needed because when the sun is shining(which it hasn't been) I get a tremendous amount of light and it really heats the room up!

a close up of the button and cup hook that holds the shade up!

These are the different ways I have found I can hang it up. I think I like the first the best. What do you guys think?
Well, one window down and about 10 more that need treatments! (My hubby says I need a crafting budget!)

My New Craft Area

For the longest time I have been frustrated with my craft area...not enough storage! So yesterday out of the blue my DH decided to build me some shelves and he added a countertop for extra workspace. I really like it. I think that after Christmas I may stain the shelves, I don't want to paint them, because the wood is really pretty, but I do think they need some color. And I need to figure what to do with all the cords also, but I think I have a pretty good space now! Thanks Hubby! Now for the unveiling.......
