oh my goodness.
2 weeks of no blogging.
i think i got hives.
no i don't really, but holy heck was i swamped.
swamped at work. swamped at home.
swamped swamped swamped.
ugh. ugh. ugh.
something had to give and that something was blogging.
i was so dang cranky from not crafting my mind was in major withdrawal until i sat there one day and said
"brain, we gotta make something. like now."
and so i did,
and it's a summer craft cuz i am still holding on to that tiny bit of summer that some people have left.
it's something happy for my brain to look at as it hangs in my recently neglected craft room.
and it's pineapplely too.
cuz pineapples seem to be the thing these days.
here's the how-to if you want to make one too.
i saw on a couple of blogs that jo ann's has a new line of crafts from hazel & ruby so i went on down there and got me a cute garland kit.
the balls are 1 inch and are awfully cute.
the thread that comes with it is thin so i went with my green and white twine.
so here's how pineapples are grown when you have no soil to grow them in.
caaaaareful when you hold it,
these pineapples are fragile so you don't wanna crush them.
i suppose you could draw the marks on them first before you tape them together but i've been outta the craft scene so long i wasn't thinking straight when i made these.
in fact i just went for the vision i had in my head.
i just alternated one felt ball with one pineapple and kept going.
so there you have a summer craft that's been squeezed into the last week of summer.
now it's full blown school days over here but i did manage to blend summer and school together in my next tute coming up.
oh i'm so happy my bloggy brain is back!
i missed you guys!
