While at an odd little fabric/notions/quasi household items store (Varenhorst Fabrics) in Storm Lake, IA I found a package of ready made yo-yos so...I bought them! I bought the ready-made yo-yos plus a yo-yo maker. I'll let you know if I ever crack it open from the package. I thought it would be fun to make an occasional yo-yo for a card or two. We'll see....
Unknown to my sisters I will be hunting down the names/locations of any scrap booking stores in the vicinity of Okoboji, IA!
I used one of the pre-made yo-yo on the previous posting - click here to see it. While at Varenhorst's Amy was looking for Gail and I - she was fooled a few times by covert and somewhat creepy mannequins. Check these out:
