My Turn to Shake It!

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Today is day two of the Shake Yourr Pom Poms Blog Hop. If you haven't seen day one you should check it out for it is a sight to behold! It never ceases to amaze me the things people think up on these hops. There is alot of talent out there.
 
I decided since spring isn't coming to me fast enough I would create my own flowers. This is the best picture I could get on such a dreary day.
 
 
I use the old fashioned cardboard wrapping method, grabbed some sticks from the backyard, and two vases from Goodwill for a total of 98 cents. Creating like this doesn't have to break the bank. The next picture is what my cats thought of the process.
 
 
All's fair in yarn and catnip!
 
I hope you have enjoyed this stop on the hop and continue to visit everyone:

I'd would also like the thank Thearica of Pigtales and Quilts for being Head Cheerleader and Madame Samm for all that she does!
