Yes, I do crafts! Holy shit the world is coming to an end! Be sure to say your goodbyes guys, Hell is freezing over.
It’s a new tradition (if it will ever become one) that I’m trying to start, and it’s to give back to my family. I’ve decided that each of my family members are going to get personalized and all of them handcrafted (hopefully) presents. If I don’t give up on them, that is. They’re also surprise gifts, so I hope that you’re all pretty good secret keepers.
First things first, a present for my mom. I’ve decided to make her a garland with pom poms so that she can decorate the house. Or at least try. So I followed the steps found here.
Er, a few of those steps, I guess. I mean, I can’t crochet. So… I can substitute right?

I substituted the crochet part with braiding yarn instead, although I’ve never braided my own hair successfully yet. I’m a fucking genius, aren’t I? So far though, it’s worked out quite well, though it looks a bit thin. I plan on making another braid and then I’ll just loop them together. Hopefully they’ll be roughly the same size.
Why hope, you ask? Being a rational one, I should have measured the string carefully and taken note before I started, wouldn’t I?
That was what I planned, then I told myself, “Fuck it,” and that plan went out the window. Instead I just measured the string off approximates and the other two by cutting it beside the previous string. Horrible idea, but it was much faster.
How will I make them stay up, you ask? I have no idea. I’ll improvise somehow, maybe that’ll involve blutack. You never know!
