What Crazy Pregnant Ladies Do While Waiting for Labor to Commence

002blogSuddenly take up yo-yo making…

014blogScour the web looking for things to make out of said yo-yos; pickings are slim. How about a springy Christmas tree?

023blogNo? Perhaps this cro-yoyo is more to your liking? Needs some tweaking, I know.

036blogIf all else fails, barrettes for little girls will do nicely, yes?

I started making yo-yos last night, perplexing my family with their sheer uselessness, but I have been helpless to stop. They’re so easy! So cute! And, yes, so worthless! I think we’ll all be glad when this baby is born, for more than the obvious reasons. πŸ˜‰

  1. I don’t know…I think some more of those Christmas tree yo-yos could be made into a cute baby mobile!

    Too funny! I made some yo-yos once and came to that exact same conclusion…they’re useless! But, you can decorate t-shirts with them (they make really cute flowers, after all) and I’ve seen people sew them together to make a blanket or scarf. But yeah, it’s something you should try to get past, and quickly before you’re house is overrun with yo-yos!

    Love you !

    1. I’m thinking of a purse or tote now with yo-yo flowers sprouting from the bottom seam. Help me.

  3. Could this be some form of nesting? They are pretty, and I was thinking a tree mobile too!

    1. Yup, probably nesting, considering my unusual energy levels. πŸ™‚ Don’t know about that mobile, though.

  4. I had a clown doll made out of yo-yo’s when I was little. Unfortunately it is long gone, I loved that thing.

      What a good idea….was it stacked yo-yos like the Christmas tree she made (above)? I can picture it that way, with body and legs and arms all stacks of yo-yos! That would be so cute!

    2. Yep, just like the Christmas tree. There has to be a how-to on the web somewhere.

      It looked like this one I found on Pinterest except mine had a pointy hat and jingle bells on the hands and feet..

    4. I’ve seen those yo-yo clowns, but I didn’t like them at all! I think they’re a little scary looking. πŸ™‚
