Some "Yo Yo" Fun

I did not know what yo yos were until my friend Elise introduced them to me. I think they are so cute, and once I saw this idea, I had to try one. I bought this frame from a garage sale for $5 (I probably overpaid, but the guy said it was "hand made" and hard to find a round frame). I hated to pay that, but loved the frame. It was gold and I painted it blue and sprayed some glitter on it to sparkle it up a bit for my daughter's room. I ordered some yo yos from an etsy shop called "yo yo cottage" and this is the creation I came up with. She loves it in her room. By the way, I will post some more pics of her room once I can get something else done in there!

That is so cute!! I am sooo stealing that idea!! I don't guess I am really stealing it since I have made one before, but it didn't occur to me to make Lilly one!!

I love this! Can you give me more details on where to get the yo yos so I can try making one for the girls??
