My Twine

twine

Remember back in May when I talked about a great deal on twine?  I know that feels like forever ago, but it wasn’t until November that I FINALLY decided what color to choose.  I was torn because the main color for my logo is turquoise but they don’t have twine that color.  I had gone back and forth with some other accent colors like orange for example, but then at the last minute decided to go with the ‘baby blue’ twine.  I figured it would be in the same family as the turquoise on the tags and would be a nice compliment.  Well, I got a delightful surprise when I opened my box of giant twine that  baby blue actually means turquoise!  I’m not sure why it is called baby blue since it is dark, but I’m not going to complain.

The roll is HUGE!  It’s 2 pounds and approximately 3400 yards of twine! It’ll be fun to see how many years it takes me to get through it, or if I even ever do.  I used the twine to tie the tags on all my ornaments this year (well, starting in November) and it didn’t even make a dent in it.

I tried to be scientific and give you a size comparison to show you just how big it is.  Yes, my friends, that’s right, it’s even bigger than a dinosaur!

What, you don’t believe me?  Ok, so here is my hand holding it.  Don’t see my hand? Those little bumps on the side are my thumb and pinky peeking out from behind it.

With shipping it does cost a lot (makes it about $18) but for the amount you get it is cheaper than anything I’ve seen out there by far.  It is definitely only something you want to get though if you are wanting one color for a lot of projects.  If you want to be able to switch colors often it might be worth spending the extra money to get some smaller rolls of twine.

I’ve really enjoyed having it to use and am one step closer to getting my branding all on the same page.  Plus, it’s just so pretty to look at.  It would be so fun to have a few colors all lined up in a row.  Too bad my house has no room for that!  Maybe one day when I have my dream studio to do all my work in.

Any other twine lovers out there?  What’s your favorite thing to do with it?

    I left a comment last night and it kept saying it didn’t post. hmm.. Anyways, Wow! That’s an awesome deal for that. I thought I had the same sized red one until I saw your hand on the roll, huge! The color looks great with your tags and product, I love it!

      Thanks for persevering and getting your comment on here! I always like comments. Where did you get your roll of twine? I have seen others for sale that in the picture look the same but then I see the amount of string and it is way less but for the same or more money. I love the look of classic red twine!

    You crack me up. I get excited about bags of leaves on the curbside, and you about mega-super rolls of twine. It’s been a while since I’ve been here. Clicking back in time now, while John takes a science unit test (and the welcome end of a very long semester with many 6th grade school projects). Nice to be able to breath again.

    I’m loving the new blog look, by the way! Great job on the choices.

      haha, I can get as excited as the next girl about giant piles of mulch and the like. Glad you got to take a break and catch up on some reading. I was just thinking of you yesterday and how great your kitchen looks.

      Thanks about the blog look. It always seems to be a work in progress. If I knew any html I could probably do more with it to make it closer to what I really want.
