Back With Some Yo-Yo's

Hello! I'm back and rested. I got some sleep the last 2 nights! Thank you all so much for your well wishes and prayers! The cold is hanging on but it's not a bad one, thank goodness!

Here is a little yo-yo project for my half bathroom. The frame is from Target's Dollar Spot. They come in a package of 3 for $2.50. They come in white, black and natural. I stocked up! My stamp club likes to use these frames.

I did change the hanger ribbon from black to green.

I, also, had to remove the glass because it was too thick to keep it in. Want to know how I found that out??? I tried squeezing it in and the glass exploded! LOL! Not a good idea.
That's all from here. I am off to finish some Valentine's that I started. Have a great day! Hugs!!

I love it! You could make one for just about any room in the house, with different colors to compliment the decor. Very pretty!

Hi Kim!
Glad you got some rest. I know all about insomnia....bummer! Hope your cold goes away soon, too!!

Hi Kim, just found you and I will for sure follow along with you. I like the yo-yo's , they are one of the few things I can do. Like the idea of matching the colors to the room. I will try it and see how I do. Thanks Sharon K

Great to use as a decoration. Can't wait to see your Valentine's.


Hi Kim,
Another great idea. Just think of all the fun you can have. I must stop at Target tomorrow, the Dollar store and a thrift store...
I'm trying to stay out of the stores for awhile, but those stores don't count...LOL
Can't wait to see your Valentines. I have my idea, just have to get going on them.
Take care.

I love the yo yos. Very simple, uncluttered. They fit perfectly. The colors are very pretty. I just love it! I am making a few more things for Valentine's Day. I will be back to see what you are making.
Have a wonderful day!

Hi Kim! How creative! I love all your projects with the yo-yo's and this one is really unique! Looks great!

So sorry you are not feeling well! Hope you continue to gain strength and are able to get enough much needed rest! I wanted to THANK YOU for your prayers and encouraging comments for my family over the last week! They meant so much to us! My prayers are with you, also! :) ~hugs, Rhonda
