How to make a shower curtain from a sheet

Okay, you’ve waited patiently and I’m finally back to show you how I made my flat sheet into a shower curtain!  As promised, I will offer two versions of this project: a no-sew version and a sewn version.  Whenever possible, I will offer no-sew alternatives to my “sewing” projects because I really want to show you that make-it-yourself home decor projects don’t always require a sewing machine or sewing skills.  There are many products available at your average craft store today that make no-sew projects more possible than ever before.



Website project: before and after

So my sister informed me that people really get into before-and-after photos.  I thought about that for a while and it struck a cord with me.  I love seeing before-and-after makeover photos.  I’ll often linger on a talk show program just so I can see the after of a make-over on someone.

So in the spirit of this curiosity, I’d like to share with you the “before” of a web project I’m working on with a designer – St. Dwayne Design.  I know it’s not as exciting as new clothes, shoes, hairdo and makeup, but I’m a web developer, not a cosmetologist 🙂

So here it is in all it’s glory!

Stay tuned for the “after” photo in a few months.  Additionally, you can go to the website at: www.providencecc.net


Fence Decor

No, you are not seeing things–that is in fact a picket fence hanging on my wall.  And, believe it or not, I have some surprisingly useful ideas for it in my house, and maybe even yours!  Allow me to explain.
