A friend let me borrow her yo-yo makers to see how well I liked them. My opinion is that they are very interesting gadgets but probably something that I won't be purchasing for myself. I especially wanted to give the heart maker a try to see if it was any easier than doing it the old fashioned way. Well, I guess to a certain extent, it did speed up the process a bit. I made a couple red ones with the yo-yo maker and the white one the old fashioned way. Of course, being left with several "spare" hearts, I decided to turn them into this...
Sweet and Juicy Red Candy Apple.
Please know that what you have been seeing this week are just prototypes. That means that they are my first trials on an idea. The end product may not look exactly the same.
I want to give a high five to Lorraine of Paper Vernissage for her very witty comment yesterday regarding the swirly icing flower. Quoting Lorraine, "Half of a yo-yo - would that be a yo! Sorry, couldn't resist. It does remind me of those icing flowers. So very pretty!"
I chuckled after reading her comment. I think she does have a point. In honor of Lorraine, I shall call it a "Yo" from now on. Thanks, Lorraine!
Also, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has been commenting lately. I have seen quite a few new names in my comments. I look forward to meeting you all and reading your blogs. I know that I have been very bad about returning comments lately, but hopefully I will be able to visit with all of you before the weekend is up.
As you have probably guessed, I'm still running around like a chicken without a head. I'll be very busy with numerous household matters from today and throughout much of the weekend. In case I cannot post tomorrow, please have a fabulous weekend!
