merry and bright ornament


The year 2020 brought us some unpleasant times...some would even say...down right NASTY!

I would agree!

During this major "home alone"  life style I remained creative...it's all I really know what to do to occupy my mind.  

Christmas Ornaments have been one of my favorite things to make...using my Embroidery Machine...Matilda Jane!  She just never disappoints with her super fabulous stitch outs.

Todays Ornament design is from Embroidery Boutique...called "Merry and Bright"...I really love the combination of a applique and simple embroidery it has!  I chose the smallest 4x4 size to make this adorable Farmhouse looking Christmas Ornament!

Who doesn't love them some Farmhouse Decor these days?

shitters full toilet paper

 I could...

so I planned...

and I made it happen!

Let's face it people...2020 has been a dumpster of a year...why not embrace the misery of it all with a little humorous Embroidered Toilet Paper?

Why...you ask?

My question is...

Why not?

We have been living in some kind of isolation or lock down of sorts across our nation for what seems like ENTERNITY...quite frankly I was beginning to loose my sense of humor...but then our son (Mr. Computer Engineer) and his wife Kellie bought themselves a new Camper...and I thought...Let's have a little fun with the situation at hand!

Everyone loves the Christmas Classic Movie...National Lampoons Christmas Vacation...starring Chevy Chase...and it has been a Family Favorite for us as well.  I love it when Cousin Eddie shows up with his dilapatated Camper and dumps his sewage right into the sanity sewer in front of Clark's Home...all while wearing his too short of a Bath Robe! You simply cannot make this stuff up!

So...to actually Embroider a Design such as this onto a Roll of Toilet was an absolute fitting tribute to what I thought of the year 2020...

And just in case you want to "learn" how to Embroider on Toilet Paper yourself...take a look in my Tutorial Section and check out my Step by Step pictorial process...and get your "Creative ON"!

Embroider ON!
