{new sewless shades}

Dearest Jenny,

I have been reading your blog for a long time now & I like to read it not because we are from the same stomping grounds & not because we are distant relatives but because you author some of the most fabulous things on your blog.

I would have been waiting a very long time for some shades because a) I do not sew and b) I have many more projects and expenses that come before paying somebody to make my custom shades. You are my best friend today as I (I mean Stacey) hung my newly crafted shades that took not one stitch but just glue, scissors, $7.00 mini blinds, & fabric. From a far my shades could just about trick anybody from the trade.

I really appreciate your blog!

Thanks in advance for any other ideas. 



*****For all of the details on this very effective project go here*****

P.S - I would like to give Stacey a big HUGE thank you.

Ooo, those are beautiful! About organizing my photos...I have one big folder called "blog", and then I created folders within called "future posts" and "posted", and then under future posts, I have a million categories under 3 other folders (Interiors, Kids, and Random)...under those I have included things like bedroom, kitchen, foyer, office, fashion, photography, food, etsy, toys, etc. It takes a while to save things in the right place, but it's much easier to retrieve later. :)
