I Had to Try it!

I just shouldn't turn my computer on.  Everytime that I do I see something I want to make.  It's like feeding craft drugs to a craft addict! Does anyone else have this problem? There's too much information and too many ideas!

Jen from Tatertots and Jello made the cutest coffee filter garland the other day and I had to make one.  I believe she found the original idea from Pam Garrison and Heather Bullard. All of theirs are fun and I hope it's alright with them that I tried it.

Tatertots and Jello gives great instructions on how to make these if your interested.  I gave mine a little pinch to pucker them as I wove the needle with the string.

  1. Hooray! I get to be the first comment!!! Yes, I'm silly, being a co-author here, but I must say, my sister is crazy talented! She doesn't give herself enough credit! I'm so proud to have you as my sister, my friend and my crafty co-conspirator! This turned out so beautiful! Now let's make one for me!
    I love you!

  4. I was thinking of making these when I saw them on Jen's blog...now I have to make them...they are so cute!! I too am overwhelmed with all of the craft ideas floating around in my head, but I love it!

  5. Your garland is so beautiful! I keep saying I'm gonna give it a go but I can't seem to stay focused on any one thing these days. And yes, there is so much inspiration out there that I forget things or where I saw them and should really just make it right then and there so that I can feel a sense of accomplishment. I just read your post about the Dr. Pepper and your boys. HA! Definitely something my 11 year old would do. :) Those aluminum birdies are adorable. Blessings, Tammy
