yo-yo's and more




Do you see this various YO-Yo's I have been making whilst just watching the news, or listening to music.
Just keeping my hands busy.
There are so many things you can do with them.
Well, now Clover has a tool that allows you to make them different sizes, accurate, different SHAPES, and FAST.
I love mine.
Maybe an idea for you ??
You can enlarge pictures to see better



Everything BUT the yo-yo's are "PART" of my giveaway. Do you see anything you like?
I am including one of the
Clover Yo-you makers.

Okay...I hate to sound dumb....but what's a yoyo? I only know the kind with a string attached!

Oh..and I see lots of things I like!

Tracy said...

I love all of your yo-yos I've made just a few. I think that would be a handy tool.

Deborah said...

Okay...I took a closer look...I love the little book on the table, with daisies on the cover, and "First We Have Coffee" looks good, and the dvd "Sense and Sensibility" would be nice....although, in houseful of boys, I guess I'd be watching it by myself!!
Everything looks wonderful, Deby!....shall I just list all that I see? LOL

I started making yo-yo's but I need to get back to it. Sure would take a lot to make a whole quilt ;)

I didn't know they had a tool to make yo yo's! Go figure! LOL!

Denise... said...

I saw a tool recently for making yo-yo's...how awesome!

Cathy said...

They are very pretty and cute, Deby. I am not very talented at things like that. The movies, book, etc. look great.

Mrs. C said...

Oh, so many goodies! I must admit that I have no clue how to make a yo-yo, although I've seen some tutorials by some crafty bloggers. :)

I would love to curl up on the couch and watch Sense & Sensibility or read one of those books. :)

Ginny said...

Look at all those yo-yo's! My goodness!! I bought two sizes of the Clover yo-yo tools a while ago, but have yet to use them. My plan was to use them as accents on purses.

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

My daughter in law makes them all the time and like you she does it to keep her hands busy when she is just sitting. She is very good. I have never made one. She makes a lot of great things out of them. Oh, yes, I see a lot that I would like. thank you, connie from Texas

Donna said...

That's a nice little pile of yo-yo's...Good Job!

Deb said...

I bought two bags of yo-yos at a yard sale but haven't done a thing with them yet! Yours look delightful!

You have some nice giveaway prizes.

Wow girlfriend, you have been a busy little bee! That's a lot of yoyos. At my house when the kids were older and everyone wanted to know what was for dinner, if I said it was "yoyo night" it meant that "You're on your own". Or everyone fends for themselves!

Mary Isabella said...

These are fabulous yo-yos and I love them.....

lady jane said...

I have a few vintage yo-yo's and would *love* to learn how to make them. I'm amazed over making a bedspread out of them! Beautiful.

Heritage of Home said...

Sweet! I have read your blog today and am very excited about the scripture that you have shared! I am a pastor's wife and it does my heart very good to read the love you have in your heart now. Praise Jesus for you sister! Keep up the faith and keep being an example of a believer to others. Have a blessed day!

Happymama said...

I like it all, but what are you going to do with all of those yo yo's...I'm curious to see what you end up with. Do you have an idea??? Are you keeping it a secret???? :)

Humble wife said...

Deby, How beautiful! You are so talented!!!

I apologize for not being around much...busy with Bill's health. I have wanted to make these and I am inspired. Maybe I will just start making them to create blankets for Christmas for the kids.

LOve how talented you are
Rapture Ready here too!

Christian Homekeeper said...

Great idea Deby!

Sharon said...

You have been busy! How long does it take to make one?

Pam said...

I love the book "Princess in Calico". I think all young ladies and women should be required to read it. Maybe we'd stop some of OUR complaining if we took it to heart!

I think I left a comment on this one already ???
