Three things to share today....
My brother is a very hip, very trendy guy. He lives in L.A. and wanted some funky, retro curtains for his place. He lives in a little bungalow - the entire building is his tiny one-bedroom apartment. He also wanted the curtains to block out the light as much as humanly possible. So, this is what I made him:
Many months ago, I bought that gorgeous Japanese fabric at my favorite quilt store in NYC, and have been hoarding it for something that I knew would come up. I didn't have quite enough to make all the curtains, so I put in a stripe of Michael Miller fabric that seemed to fit (the fabric with the writing on it). He wanted tab top curtains so that they'd have a more handmade feel. At first, I disagreed, but seeing these photos he sent me, I really like the way they look. Also, I couldn't find blackout material at a reasonable price (and in a small quantity), so I used black wool felt on the back. Not only does it do a great job of blocking out the light, but the curtains insulate the windows too. Pretty cool.
I got a late night request for a layout from Simple Scrapbooks. Yay! I'm a big fan of Simple Scrapbooks' entire approach to scrapbooking. They're all about a guilt free scrapbook lifestyle. That sounds good to me!
I have been taking my Photo-a-Day, but I've been terrible about uploading it to the album on the right. Eeek. I'm in the middle of production (with a show opening on Friday) and have a horrible cold, but I promise to get to uploading sometime in the next few weeks.
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
