Merry Christmas!

The internet has slowed down to a crawl this week, so I guess I’ll take the cue too and sign off till Sunday. I just finished the one and only thing I managed to make this Christmas season — this yo-yo wreath. What do you think? Too much? Not enough? Just right? I’d like to thank this knot, without which all that hand-stitching would not have been possible.

So, a very merry Christmas to you and yours, if that’s your holiday of choice. My warmest wishes for a peaceful holiday. See you again in a few days!

    What a GREAT wreath: I daresay that is the coolest yo yo wreath I have ever seen and I may or may not have wreath envy.

    Merry Christmas!

    I have this newfound love of yo-yos, and really need to try all this out for myself! Great job on the wreath, I love the little pops of red :)

    I absolutely love it!!! I may get me some greens & start for next year! You can make quite a few yoyos watching TV

  7. Holly says:

    Oh my goodness! My heart skipped a beat when I saw this wreath. I am most certainly going to have to make one of my very own. It is truly lovely!

  8. Amy Hodge says:

    I LOVE IT!!!! I have been wondering what I could do with yo-yo’s, but so many of the yo-yo projects are just a little too cute for me. This is really adorable. I hope you can give us a tutorial after the holidays so I can make one for next year (hint hint!).

    Kim—you more than deserve a vacation from your wonderful site. The wreath is a delight as are all the ideas, interviews, etc that you share with us. May the year ahead be one of joy and blessings.

  28. Linda says:

    Lovely just the way it is…awsome colors of green…good job.

  29. Vicki says:

    fabulous! I love it!

  30. craftyconfusion says:

    Ummmm what to say?!!! Definitely not TOO much. I have never ever seen a yoyo project I liked, infact (I hate to admit it but…) I even go so far as to discourage any of my friends who suggest they might like to try their hands at the yoyo. Imagine the shock on their faces when I attempt to re-create this little beauty. Very nice!
