Yo-Yo's and Pom-Pom's

I've been making yo-yo's and then I got this idea off of Queenly Thing's Blog the other day, who had gotten it off of Molly Chicken's Blog, to make fabric scraps Pom-Pom's. I think it turned out so cute!! I can't wait to make more!

I like the word yo-yo and actually pom-pom is pretty cute too! My sister, Cathy, teaches English as a Second Language in the evenings to adults. She said her students were asking her about yo-yo's the other day. Cathy said they'd say the word yo-yo and laugh, that just saying the word brought a smile to their faces. So, I guess I'm not so crazy after all!! Right??

What is everybody else making?? What word do you think is kinda funny or cute?

Check out my kids, Ezie and Mallory's blogs too see what's going on in their lives! They're pretty cute little blogs, if I may say so myself!!

Well, it seems that since I live with children, the funny words are usually, "Poop" and other words such as this. For some reason though I like the word, "aluminum". Maybe I like it because Sophia can't ever say it right and the way she says it is so cute.

I love the colors you chose for the pom-pom. I've had to stop myself from making more. They are so fun but just how many do I need? I already have all my flip flops decorated.

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
