What I’ve been up to all week (a very special little project!)

Posted by on Nov 16, 2012 in Ramblings... | 1 comment

This weekend is the Drawing Hope Project‘s Christmas party (I chatted a bit about how awesome the Drawing Hope Project is HERE) for all of the children (and their families) who have been part of the project to date.  And since Shawn, the organization’s founder, is one of my BFFs, I quite happily volunteered to help out!

So what’s my big role?

Red tissue paper pompom

Yeppers.  I’m puff girl!  And let me tell you, it’s been a bit of a puff-making frenzy around here this week!  I’ve been puff-making like I’ve never puff-made before.  And there’s a whole lot of love going into each fun festive fluffy ball.

The colours make me ridiculously happy.  I ADORE the bright green with the jolly red and white colour combination (I drove all over town to find the perfect red tissue paper – not too dark, not too transparent, not too muddy-looking, just bright and cheery and Christmassy.  :)

Christmas tissue paper pompom puffs

So far I’m up to about 40 puffs that are ready to be fluffed on Saturday (since it’s hard to pre-fluff the puffs – puffs don’t transport particularly well once fluffed.)  I’m hoping to finish another 20 or so by Saturday.

And in case you’re looking for some puff-making instructions, here’s the tutorial I normally follow, courtesy of Amanda at Imperfectly Beautiful (although, once you’ve made one, they’re pretty darn foolproof.)

So, now, if you’ll please excuse me, I’ve got some very important tissue-folding to do.  Happy Friday!  :)
