This Christmas my goal is to unclutter my apartment. I have way too many clothes in my wardrobe and I have set out to find creative ways to use them. I know many of you are like me. I was recently reading on a blog that we "crafters are organized hoarders". Well, lets craft some more and use use up our stashes or wardrobes in this case.
Take a comfortable seat on your couch with an old sweater, a pear of scissors and a newspaper.
Unthread your sweater and make some balls from your newspapers. You can also buy styrofoam balls, but why spend money when you can have them for free.
Roll the yarn on your balls until the newspaper is covered. I used a crochet needle to hide the end of the yarn.
Embellish as you like using whatever you have available in your stash. Here are mine:

(tied in a bunch with a golden bow)
(wrapped up in a matching box ready to give away as Christmas present)
Some people work, then they go home to relax. I go to work to relax. Making invitations and other stationery is my escape from the real world and from everyday chores. It is my dream world. So come join me at least for a little while to design your dream invitations for that special day in your life.
