Hey, Karrieann!

Look what I did with my Mentos container!


Karrieann sent me the loveliest Christmas package of tatting goodies, and she included a container of Mentos gum. I like gum, but I don't chew it very often. So, it took me until now to finish it! Karrieann suggested that the Mentos container be used as a thread holder. I didn't want to be a walking advertisement for gum, so I blinged the container. I think it turned out cute! I won't be making any more, though. First of all, it would take me ages to chew that much gum. Secondly, I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to whittle down my tatting supplies. I certainly don't need to accumulate any more containers, but this one I will keep. Thanks for the idea, Karrieann!

  2. This is much nicer than the containers I collected in Korea. I especially like the jewels in the flowers!

  3. What????? Whittling down your tatting supplies??? Are you feeling OK?

    She (or he) who dies with the most thread wins!

  4. That's so cute! Did you use the adhesive paper for that? I just made room for more tatting supplies, so no whittling here!

  6. Cute! I've got about three different gum containers (a nine-year-old and a fifteen-year-old chew a lot of gum!). I couldn't figure out how to cover everything though. Good to see it's not necessary!

  7. Quick! Somebody check this woman for fever! Or concussion. You can't seriously be de-stashing, can you?

    Your container is so cute! And the jewels in the flowers add the perfect touch of glamor.

  8. Ha! Sounds like me with the altoid mints. I'm really not a big mint eater, though I like them, but I loved the tins. And you can decorate them too. So I have several, NOT EMPTY, waiting....

  9. Whittling down may have been a bit of an exaggeration, even a misuse of terminology. Actually, my New Year's Resolution was to use what I have and not purchase any more so that my tatting supplies wouldn't overtake the house. I have been totally unsuccessful!

    Since I've done so poorly with my resolution so far, I figure I may as well stock up on supplies at the Lafayette Lace Day!
