Bakers Twine Crafts – friday fab five

I love baker’s twine! Here are 5 fun ways to use them in crafts in addition to using it to wrap up a cute gift, which I am also a big fan of.

1. Mini Spool Magnets – The Twinery Blog
2. You Color My World card – Lea’s Cupcakes and Sunshine
3. Twine Boutonniere – The Twinery Blog
4. Flower Card – Jen’s Ink Spot
5. Bakers Twine Cupcakes – Whisker Graphics

I will continue to add more Baker’s Twine craft ideas to my board on Pinterest, if you’d like to follow along.

Last Friday I blogged about bumble bees and how “I LOVE BEES!!” …scratch that.

Last Saturday I was working in the yard all day and I got stung by a bee, and oh my #$%*&…@#$%& (and I don’t swear). :)

I have a pretty high pain tolerance, but that about had me in. I think I might be a bit allergic, because my leg was swollen, it hurt so bad.

So I now, I mostly just like fake bees, and the real ones from a distance. :) Sort of like the people on “put a bird on it”, when they see a real bird. :)

So this week, I thought I’d stick with something safe. Baker’s Twine it is! :)

Happy Friday!

    Aw, sorry about your sting. :( It’s a teeny tiny bit funny that you got stung on your knee, though, right? “The bee’s knees”? And thanks for the Portlandia flashback. SO funny!

    Following you on Pinterest now. We have a similar collection of boards. :)

    I am so afraid of bees. I do a funny bee dance when they come around. Like jump up and run around like a crazy person. Dave gets so mad at me. It’s been so long since I have been stung that I am scared to death it will hurt like h.e. double hockey sticks. You just confirmed my worst fear. Sorry you are in pain.

    You will laugh at this crazy treatment for a bee sting! Use a small folded square of paper towel and wet it thoroughly with ammonia. Rub pretty hard over the sting spot for a couple of minutes. Then tape a penny to it, using 2 criss-crossed bandages or a square of duct tape. Leave it on over night. Another remedy is to put a drop of water on an allergy tablet (such as Allerest) and then tape the pill mass to the bee sting. You probably need to be prepared for future bee stings since you are obviously allergic.
