Let the twine take center stage!

{As seen today on The Twinery's blog}

It is still so hard for me to believe that it is already December (and almost 2012)!

I have been so blessed to be able to be on The Twinery's Design Team this year and I must admit that I am sad to see all these final posts and goodbyes from some of my amazing teammates over on The Twinery's blog.

Like many of The Twinery's fans, I am crossing my fingers for a spot on next year's Design Team, but if I don't make the cut this will be my final official post for The Twinery.
No matter what happens, I will continue to use The Twinery's beautiful products and will continue to support The Twinery in whatever way I can.

I believe that The Twinery's twine is a beautiful product and there are so many great options to let the twine take center stage on your projects.

One way to showcase your twine is to create a pattern or shape with it. For this card I created these "heart strings" from Maraschino, Pink Sorbet, and Blossom twine:

The Twinery's twine also looks beautiful when crocheted.

For this tag I crochet a wreath from Peapod twine and topped it off with a little bow of Maraschino twine:

Sometimes it is just best to let the twine shine in a place where there would normally be something like string:

The tree garland was created with Maraschino twine and the bow features both Maraschino and Honeydew twine.

{If you joined us for The Twinery & Market Street Stamps blog hop you may have already seen this one...but I thought it was worth sharing again.}

Thanks for joining me here today and I wish each and every one of you:

this holiday season and throughout the new year!
