Day 268 - Every Serious Book Needs A Pom Pom.
Hello Frilly Friday! Yep, we are going to go DIY all the way today. Let's create something soooo cute even the tired and grumpy will feel a burst of happy today. A few years back I started to learn to knit. Like every hobby I have ever started and stopped, somewhere in a dark corner there are supplies lurking. What is it about hobbies? We start them and then the yogurt maker or table saw gets pushed further and further back in the garage to the land of the lost. Well, I say dig up those supplies today, dust them off and let's create something fun.
As I mentioned previously, I learned to knit a while back. The box with beautiful yarn calls to me often from the dark recess of my closet. Today, I pulled the yarn and consulted Pinterest. DIY pom pom bookmarks are pretty adorable and easy. It's like having a pint size cheerleader hovering over each page. Perfect.
Today's project is to create a pom pom bookmark. If DIY, pom pom bookmarks just seem silly to you, it's because they are ridiculous. If they are a complete turn off, it's ok. Drag out that beer making gear and start brewing. Or pull out the dusty old bowling ball and head to the lanes. Dust off your magician gear. We start a hobbies for a reasons that are sometimes unclear to us and we often abandon them in the same way. Let's create time to get passionate again about something we once loved. After all, every serious book needs a pom pom.
For all of those interested in making fluffy, soft and joyful pom poms, here are the steps.
See you tomorrow hobby enthusiast!
