Dishing it with Amanda

Amanda over at Serenity Now is hosting a blog party today. We are dishing it - or getting to know one another a little better.

How long have you been blogging?
I have only been blogging since March 18, 2010 <--- newbie :)

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I wanted to start crafting again and I thought if I had to be accountable for new posts then I would get off my butt and do something :)

Tell me about your blog's title. Why did you choose it?
I chose Cindy's Crafty Creations because I love to do ALL crafts.  I am naturally curious about how to do and/or make things.

What do you blog about?
Although I am very new in the blogging world I will be blogging about quilting, sewing, decorating, my granddaughters, small crafts etc.

What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I love sharing with people and seeing that someone is interested.  lol

If you had to choose one famous person to become your blog's next devoted reader, who would you pick?
I would love it to be Oprah.  She needs to take up a hobby :)

What's the funniest comment you've ever received on a blog post?
Not too many comments yet.

New Window coverings

Since the smell of spring is in the air, I wanted to change my living room colors.  I am loving the color blue lately and when paired with chocolate brown it looks fantastic.  The other day I saw these gorgeous drapes with chocolate, green and blue striped colors.  I wanted them sooo bad.  But, the price was way too steep.  Sooo, I thought I would make them.  When I added up the price of four metres of similar fabric, it was still too expensive.  Then I had a "Sell This House" moment.  Sheets!!  I would re-purpose sheets into living room drapes. I found these beautiful robin's egg blue sheets and all I had to do was cut the flat sheet in two, hem one side of each panel and the bottom.  Taadaa!!!!   I actually finished a project.  I did! lol

I even used left over sheet material to cover a pillow :)  and make a new pillow with pattern fabric.  I was even doing this when my fav show was on... Nascar!

I love the way the living room is shaping up. It looks very fresh.

I even re-did my mantel with some blue, white & green accents. I still need to paint the family sign, black I think.

What do you think?  Have you changed your living room colors this spring?  Are you going to try a different color scheme.  Let me see what you are doing as well.  Happy Spring!!!
