This weekend has been great, I learned so many new things craft-wise and have Jamie, Ashley, and Kat to thank for it! Ashley mentioned making pom-poms via webcam the other night and taught me how :) So I went to Hobby Lobby, got a pom-pom maker and went to it! I had a dose of insomnia last night and made 32 pom-poms.. Yea, I have no clue what I'm going to do with them yet. Any ideas?
Jamie also made a post about finger-knitting a few days ago and I had to try it. I had lots of trouble at first because I used too thin of yarn, so I went back and bought the chunkier kind and it worked splendidly! I used Kat's tutorial, which made it amazingly easy and fun! I'm planning on using it to hang up my Christmas cards. I am going to take some thread and tie it through the card onto the garland. I think it will turn out cute and once I have it hung up, I'll post more pictures. Here is some pics of me finger-knitting and the finished product :)
Here is a pic of the ridiculous amount of pom-poms I made.
Medium ones and baby ones :)
Here is the bow I got for my wreath. I'm not to sure about it because it's really big, so I may make my own. For now I will use this one. What do you think, smaller or this one?
I have finished mostly everything I wanted to this weekend. Still in the process of doing laundry and still haven't wrapped any gifts (which I will regret later). I just feel so overwhelmed with the amount I have to wrap. Words of encouragement? plz? To give you an idea of why I'm dreading it, here are 2 pictures, keep in mind there is stuff in all those boxes and things stuffed in bags and stuffed inside more bags you can't see. Several gifts were shipped from family and friends that were not wrapped, so that is why there is so much (and more on the way). I am grateful for it all and happy my kiddies will be spoiled this Christmas, just not looking forward to the wrapping process. Minus the bassinet of course (it's just being used as a box holder at the moment). Everything else has to be wrapped. So, who wants to come up here and help me? Any takers???
In other cute news, look at this adorable spoon holder I scored for $1.00, that's right.. $1.00!!!. HOLY CUTE! A chocolate dipped strawberry, yea I love it!
I'll be working on this today :) Can you guess who it's for?? (hint hint Jamie)
