twiney fun

Bakers twine has been around for a long time so obvi this is nothing new- BUT, I am obsessed with all the colors I keep seeing it in these days.  All these crafts and uses around the house has me wanting to pick up a few spools of it...or maybe all of the colors.



So many colors, so many uses!

 dress up a plain brown paper package...come on sing the song with me.  "Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things."  You're welcome for getting that stuck in your head.

 how cute is this birthday cake bunting?

paper tags get an upgrade with pretty string 

 Oh Martha!

Cupcakes in a jar tied with a spoon to go- hello my new favorite snack!

more tags...


This isn't exactly a summer thing, but how cute is this hot cocoa mix in a jar?

So what other bakers twine ideas am I missing here?  Spill em people, I need a reason to justify my large purchase of bakers twine.

What great pictures - and don't worry, you'll find a MILLION uses for your baker's twine! I think when the holidays roll around you'll be running out.

I love bakers twine for crafts. I use it often for decorating cards not just gift tags. Now I'm off to pin these sites so I can make a large purchase of pretty colored twine. Blogging is dangerous for the pocketbook. ;)

I'm currently stockpiling colored baker's twine, so I can COMPLETELY relate to the obsession. But now new colors? I'm in trouble...

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
