Garland!

It's not just for Christmas anymore!
These were super quick and easy and fun to do and I have a bunch more ideas in my head for other types of garland to string. But where would I hang all these strands?!?! Hahahaha...I picture my entire house having dainty strands of garland all over the place. I just KNOW Doug would be impressed. ;o)
Picture above is the first one I made -- hanging in the doorway of my studio. I LOVE the Martha Stewart paper punches from Michaels! I used white sewing thread (actually it's quilting thread so it's a bit more substantial). And you can see our A-Z pages in the background. :o)

Here are a few more. Balloons and princess crowns are Martha punches, the heart is another punch I have. The balloons have a little string hanging from the bottom of each...can't see those in this picture. My mind is spinning...the themes and possibilities are endless!!!In other news around my craft studio...here are some kitty-cat shots of Whiskers Jay Althoff [aka Whisky Jay, aka J-cat, aka Rotten]. Here he's using the edge of my project-in-progress for a claw-less scratching post:Looking SO innocent:
I love my studio. Wish I could be in there 24-7!!!

Love the garlands, they would be cute in Jordan's room. I forgot you did those A-Z pages! Mine is hanging in my craft room too. I'm thinking now I should do one for Joe and Jordan. I'm going to have to quit reading your posts...the project ideas are piling up! :)
