Sweat Shop... and Not JUST Because It's Summer in Texas

When my mom was here visiting, she helped make some curtains for Claire's bedroom. In case you need a refresher course, here is what Claire's bedroom looks like (but you might want to put on your sunglasses first). I absolutely LOVE the curtains she designed and made. Check it out:

Shortly after the new curtains were installed, Claire was asking me why they are two pieces with a split down the middle. I told her that's how curtains usually are so that if you want to you can pull them open and look out the window or let more light in. She liked this idea but was struggling to get the curtains to stay open. Later that day, I came up to her room and she proudly showed me how she had gotten them to stay open:

Let's zoom in on that technique:

Claire pointed out that she doesn't have any yellow clothes so we never use those hair clips. True, true... but still not my favorite long term solution.

I love it! The yellow looks nice with the white and green.

Sheesh, what a smart girl you've got on your hands. Not only with the method, but the selection of the color. She sounds just like her mom... :)
