Well, I’m disappointed but not surprised that I didn’t make it to the next round of the One Crafty Contest. My entry? Glittered Tissue Pom Poms. I had been thinking about making some pom poms from sewing pattern tissue, so I thought, why not add glitter for the glitter round? Apparently not such a great idea!
Maybe where I went wrong was the presentation. I like the pom poms, but wasn’t sure how to display them for the contest and remain anonymous. I want to use them in my booth, but that wasn’t going to work for the photos. Ok, so, here is where it gets weird.
I wandered around the house and decided to paint this old rake and hang them from it. Brilliant, huh?
I added bobbins and spools to the tines, and hot glued buttons across the base. I don’t know why.
I made an oh-so-witty banner out of scrapbook paper. Or maybe that’s oh-sew-witty.
And propped the darling thing in the corner behind my sewing table.
Ah, well, I guess I cracked under the pressure.
As my friend Mel would say, Delight or Disaster? Don’t answer that.
