I made another piece of Baker's twine!!

This one was done the same wrap your crochet thread sz 10 around a ruler 11x make sure you tape the ruler with scotch tape.  Only this time i used a different kind of marker made for stamping.  I really like the results...don't forget to tape the beginning and ending of your thread to the ruler so it doesn't move around!! Hope you like it!!

Just unwound my homemade baker's twine

Not bad!!! I think it might look better on a card though!!

Hi Guys!! I am attempting my own Baker's twine!!

The other day i bought 350 yards of size 10 crochet thread in an attempt to make my own!! Well it costs me $1.99 for the thread and i already had sharpies.  Take an old ruler but if you are concerned about it you can use painter's, masking or scotch tape to cover it.  I just cut a piece of thread and i wound it around the ruler after i taped it with Scotch tape.  Now i am not saying it is perfect but we don't have to be perfect cause we are scrappers, right? Anyway, next i just drew lines on the thread.  I wrapped mine around 10x cause it's just a trial run and i want to do a lot of colors if it works!! I did mine in red hoping that i can use it on Christmas cards!!  Anyway here is a picture of mine that is still drying!! You can do thicker lines or thinner lines.  You can do yours up and down (it's probably easier) Hope you like it!! Don't worry i will be back later to show it unwound!!

School's back in session!!!

  At least it is in the small country town i reside in Ohio!! So i have been taking my time and not working to hard on the housecleaning and figured i would take a week to breathe.  Luckily both my children are teens, so they are in school full time!! I haven't done a dang thing this week so far besides catching my breath(obviously had to still do dishes and laundry)!! LOL.  I hope everyone else is having a nice time and not working too hard!! We will save the hard work for!!  I wanted to give a holler to my newest followers and thanks for following my blog!! I plan to start some layouts in September which i will post as i do them, so stay tuned and stay creative!!
