Saturday Garland

I used my Martha Stewart circle cutter that hubby had tucked into my stocking this Christmas. (he remembered! aww) I can totally vouch for this circle cutter, it was so sooth and easy to use...I almost lost a finger when I was changing the blade but other than that this thing is my new favorite gadget. However, I decided this week, that after midnight there will be no more crafting for me involving blades of any kind. I'm not sure how it happened, but when I was inserting the blade I cut the tip of my finger wide open...the blade was so razor sharp I didn't even feel it or realize it until I felt something tickling my elbow and realized it was my own blood flowing down my arm. Pretty gross, huh? My kitchen looked like a crime scene by the time it was over. So, just be careful with this thing, it's no joke.

ANYwho...I used chipboard letters, Martha Stewart and diamond dust glitters but unfortunately didn't have anything skinny enough on hand except for that white yarn to tie the circles onto my ribbon with, I'm going to replace it with white ribbon because I think it will look better.

So that's my weekend so far, The Bella and I sure miss our man, but we have big plans to walk to the park, take a dip in the neighborhood pool, and maybe partake in some ice cream cones with colored sprinkles. We're visiting a new church tomorrow morning and then after her afternoon nap, we're going to make pink cupcakes in leu of her favorite book, Pinkalicous :) A nice, simple weekend. Perfect.

I hope ya'll are all enjoying your weekends as well :)

Love your garland! Sounds like you and the little 'IMP' are gonna have a fun day.

Better watch out for ol' M.Stewart. Not a big fan of hers. That product doesn't sound very safe. ??? Having said that, I did just buy one of her border punches and gold ink pad today. I was given a Wally World gift card for Christmas and certainly wanted to spend it on something crafty. Not a big choice - except for MS. I'll let you know if I like it or not.

I really like how this looks! It would be fun to make a birthday or welcome home banner like this. I'll have to check out the circle clutter. :)
