Hey guys, I’m here!
Were you missing me?
I have been a little consumed with……..
But the numbers are WAY higher…….way…way….higher.
I don’t smoke……drink very little….am only 41……..
175 over 120 last night.
Crazy, isn’t it?
Going to get that checked on later this week…..
I have been up to some stuff though that you guys may want to hear about……
You have heard about these window treatments FOREVER…..
Woo Hoo! They have finally been made!
I know that I’m using flash but it was raining you a storm outside…(thank you LORD! Awful drought here!)
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE HOW EASY THESE WERE FOR ME TO MAKE!
ONE EASY STEP!
Well, first I had a few steps.
I unrolled the fabric…….printed out the Roman Shade tutorial………and started getting totally overwhelmed…..
I thought to myself…..
What if someone is advertising on Craigslist and would make these for me…really, really cheap?
THIS WAS MY ONE EASY STEP.
I called a Craigslist ad…..

I have begun making custom drapes, curtains, roman shades, pillows, duvets & a little of everything. Also some minor upholstering. I can send pics of items I have done. Prices vary, depending on what you get, if you purchase the fabric, & so fourth. Have something in mind, email me & I can quote you a price. Quick turnaround time & far less than what the stores would cost.And specializing in modern, contemporary window treatments! Pics upon request.
Don’t hate on me.
You could make my blood pressure go up.
She was very inexpensive and fast….TOTALLY WORTH IT!
Look how long they are?
Can you imagine if I just left them down. Would be very welcoming, wouldn’t it?
They were a big project though!
She had to line up the pattern….do my lining…….sew stuff…..do stuff…..make stuff.
I really think it was over my skill level.
Too much stuff….too little time.
But at least they are up!
I don’t know that I would recommend this specific seamstress out.
There were a few issues…
I still have to “fine tune” my shades a bit……
But well worth the money.
This room has come a long way.
So would you hire an affordable seamstress for less than what you would buy the window treatments for…including your fabric?
Have you ever started a project but felt that it may be “over your skill level”?
Â I would love to know what you think!
I have missed hearing from you all…….
ps….I may have a few less post this coming week as we figure out what is going on with my blood pressure…..but I love hearing from you! Keep in touch! Love, Me
