Yoyos and Surprises

yoyos, originally uploaded by Ansis68.

So I've joined the rest of the crafting world and made a couple yoyos. I'm not really a yoyo kind of person, they seem a bit frou-frou on the whole but I need them for this project I'm working on. All very mysterious and hush-hush of course ;) So check back tomorrow because it's my birthday and since I'm a massive Lord of the Rings geek (honest, I belonged to the fan club and everything) I'm going to go with the Hobbit tradition for birthdays. If you don't know what that is then I suggest you get reading quick! Or just wait until tomorrow :)

I've also put my name in the hat for the Sew Mama Sew May giveaway which happens on the 27th, so I need to get busy for that too! I'm paranoid about forgetting though, I had a doctor's appointment yesterday that I thought was today so I missed it and quite understandably he's got the pip at me. I'm scared it's a sign of advancing age, I've never forgotten something like that before!


  1. Sort of like a flight to North America :P
    Hey I don't remember you having the Adventures of a Crafty Archaeologist on the top of your page.

  2. Yeah, something like that ;)

    The sub-title is new - what do you think? Suggestions welcome.

  3. How about the endeavours of a crafty archaeologist I like that a lot. I don't like the colour of the text you added somehow it doesn't fit. Or maybe it's because it's a different font I think I would like to see it in the bottom right hand corner. How's that for "what do you think" ;P

  4. I like all of your ideas! Some I'd had already, some are good to know from other people's computers and monitors. I'll see what I can do (can't remember how to shift the description around)


    whats a yoyo?

    i dont mind the font but the pink is hard to see over the floral. old eyes and all :)

  6. Looks better except the pink is hard to read I wonder if the green from the fabric would be better or maybe outlining the text in black or something like that. I'll have to look at other stuff that has text over top and see what stands out without standing out if you know what I mean :)

  7. Yeah, what's a yoyo? Is it the same as a hair scrunchie?

  8. Yoyos are those round fabric things in the photo. They're just circles of fabric drawn up around the edges with thread and then flattened out into disks.

    I'm working on this text colour thing. It's impossible to find something that shows against the pattern of the fabric well. I think the only way around it is to put the text into the image rather than sitting on top of it applied with Blogger's very limited text options.
