oh goodness it's starting to look
a little fru fru around here,
as you may agree after you read this post.
cuz if you're familiar with these parts,
you know i am not fru fru.
anyway, the reason for all
the dainty pink stuff for the 3rd post in a row
is not due to heart day coming up,
but rather it's due to the baby shower
i am currently working on.
as few as the posts have been here lately,
i've never worked so craftily as
i've done this past week or so...
i was thinking
"hmmm, what should i do for the blog?"
but then i had so much shower stuff to do
it didn't even dawn on me
that i was already crafting.
confused? yeah me too.
anyway, when the shower is over
(it's next saturday)
i will make a post of all the craziness.
in the meantime,
here's a diy for you on how
to make a fancy fry fru garland
for your cupid love or whatever.
i got some heavy duty cardstock
at michael's on clearance,
5 sheets for a dollar-yippee!
for a baby girl shower,
these were pink-sparkly-glitter
so i cut them up and glued the pennant
back to back cuz i needed a garland
for the entry-exit way.
just remember if you make a
back-to-back garland to be seen
from the front as well as the back,
your letters will be reversed when glued
together so that you can read it correctly
no matter which way you are looking at it.
i only learned that from a duh experience
when i made one in the past,
and made one pennant at a time.
for instance, i glued one B on the front
and another B on the back on the same pennant.
one side said BEST WISHES
and the other said SEHSIW TSEB.
i was gonna leave it and tell people
it was secret code
before i had to fix the whole
blasted thing all over again.
see told you i'm not exactly fru fru.
either way, hope if you diy,
