WOYWW What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday...#139 and SFYTT




Tonight I am showing off a big pile of twine sitting on my desk. Yucky, frustrating, irritating.... I get so impatient I end up just pulling a piece and cutting it off. I found this great tip on pinterest! Wrap your twine around a clothes pin (bought the pins at The Dollar store )   When you finish wrapping the twine, tuck it into the "clamps" of the clothes pin and that will hold you twine or ribbon in place! I think it would be better to do this before you start pulling on the twine...too late for me LOL! This will be a perfect project while sitting and watching my favorite TV show!

 So neat and compact...such a simple idea!  Gotta love pinterest!

If you have a few minutes, stop by Julia's Stamping Ground  and take a tour of desks from around the world!



And...here I am skidding in sideways finishing my SFYYT (sketch for you to try-January 2012)  over at Jen's i{heart}2stamp. The last day of challenge!





Thanks for popping in today and welcome to all my new followers! Wow-weeee!


I hope to show you some fun Valentines projects if I can find the time this week!

OOh brilliant idea Sue mine are in a plastic bag all tangled!! grrr, I will take this on board and have a sort out, the card is gorgeous and I loves red xxxxx

Carolina Girl (Cely) said...

Oh Yes, great idea. When crocheting I twirl it into a ball. With twine, your idea is much better...especially ribbon.

butlersabroad said...

I like that peg idea, my bakers twine is on the old fashioned type pegs but that doesn't take care of the ends though. I've never been to Pinterest, I spend way too much time in front of a computer as it is! Very pretty card too.

Donna said...
