Welcome to the Twine it Up Blog Hop!


Hi Everybody!
Welcome to the Twine it Up Blog Hop featuring the Thankful Thursday Design team.  For those of you that don't know, Thankful Thursday started out as a challenge to encourage people to craft with their loved ones, young and old.  It was named Thankful Thursday to remind people to be thankful for their loved ones, and the crafty passion we all share.  The designers on this hop are from the Thankful Thursday Design Team.  Eventually, the challenge evolved to a monthly blog hop where we share inspiration for different types of projects, and hopefully encourage you all to involve your loved ones with your crafting!

For this month's blog hop, I sent each of the design team some twine, and share what they came up with!  I decided to try and make friendship bracelets with my kids.  You can find the tutorial I used to make these bracelets HERE.  We had a lot of fun doing these together :O)  Here's how they turned out:

**All twine used is from Timeless Twine!**

"Firecracker" Aqua Cherry & White

Bubble Gum Pink

Aqua Blue

Aqua Delight - Aqua and Brown

Here is the first one:

We also wanted to make one using Halloween colors.  Here's a look at that one:

Halloween Baker's Twine 

Pumpkin Orange Bakers Twine 

Black Coffee Bakers Twine 

My girls are constantly wearing bracelets of some kind, so I know they will wear these to death!

Prize #1

10 yards total of a color of twine!!
