What Craftster means to me is swapping!! I love love swapping. I was recently in a swap where my partner did the same craft as me, so I wanted to do so etching different for her. Well, she had a sign for her room "yarnia" on her wish list so I thought it would be perfect! I think I want to make one for myself now too! I've been waiting for it tone received, but no word on that yet so kookaloo_starr....NO PEEKING!!  Cheesy

I painted a 12 x 16 canvas a light blue and added some clouds.  Then I kept thinking how can I make yarnia.....then it came to me! WITH YARN!!  I have to say, wrapping the letters was harder then I thought it would be, I had a lot of sticky fingers, lol. It wasn't hard, but I had to play to keep the right shape. I looked for wooden letters to wrap, but at $3-4 each I said no way! And bought some thick craft foam. I found a hippy font and went cutting, then gluing. I did it in the colours of a rainbow.  Then I had to embellish it with yarn balls, hanks, hooks and buttons.  Kookaloo also has a thing for peace signs so I found these cool peace charms and attached them to the bottom.  Enough talking, here's the pics.



Hope you like it! Better yet, hope kookaloo_starr likes it! I loved making it!

Way cool!  I definitely need something like this for my own yarnia Grin  Great idea to cut your own letters and I adore the little yarn balls!
