Trendy Twine Guest Designer or OMG I cannot believe she asked me!

I used Trendy Twine in Sky for this project because
I'm self absorbed I made something for me:)

I KNOW! Can you believe it she asked ME to do a project with her twine?! I said YES before she could change her mind, now she's stuck with me for the day...hmph. If you don't already follow the Trendy Twine blog, please do so! She has fabulous products and designers, and you'll never be at a lack for inspiration there.

Imagine making cards, scrapbook pages, party favors and they're ALWAYS for someone else....what? You do this too? So this week I was feeling very possessive of my free time. So I didn't want to make anything for anyone but me...but I did, I made a card for someone else but this little pin cushion is ALL MINE. 

Believe it or not I use to smoke, a long time ago (I know! The transition into non-smoker has been successful), and what helped me to expend my nervous energy was cross stitch, and doing this I actually learned to do a 'french knot'. I used this technique on a piece of a old t-shirt from my daughter, a cute little mason jar and batting. I really love 'up cycling', don't you?

I love the calmness of the blue and cream together, and right now that spool of Twine is on sale! In fact there are other spool bundles at great prices at Annie Paper Boutique, Her prices astound me! Other companies have their spools for close to 20 bucks! 

I used MME 'Lost & Found' because it perfectly matches the
blue hues I was going for. The kite is a freebie from silhouette , and
I used my NEW CAMEO to cut it!(I didn't tear my hair out-and
I didn't lose my mind using it-can I get a AHHHHHHH?)

(Do you see my darling stamp from MTE? The mini Thoughts set fit perfectly in the clouds in the file from Silhouette!)

In it's new home

This is the inside of my jar:) I used Birds & Bees from MTE
