Because I Don’t Have Enough On My Plate

Sometimes I wonder why I have to do everything in excess.  A perfect example:

While trying to come up with some decorating ideas for the upcoming BBQ, I came across Martha Stewart’s Tissue Pom Pom Tutorial.  Easy enough you say.  Correct.  Except I ordered a ream each of hot pink and lime green tissue paper.  Umm, that’s 960 sheets.  That means I can make 96 of these giant tissue pom poms!

7 tissue pom poms done…only 89 more to go.  If I’m to get them done by the BBQ (Saturday, August 7th), I’ll need to make at least 4 a day.  What the heck am I thinking?  LOL

Wish me luck, because I’m going to need it!

With friendship,




  1. Overachiever! LOL!

  3. But of course….we would expect nothing less of you.

  4. Lisa,
    When I made these I found it helpful to make them assembly line style. I accordion folded stacks and stacks of these suckers and set them aside. Then I tied them all. Then I clipped the ends. I did all the fluffing on site. Of course I made about a dozen of these individually before I realized it’d be easier to do it that way. Well, that and I didn’t have anywhere to put 40+ big pompoms in my house or car until I had to drive them an hour away for my SIL’s baby shower. 🙂 Good luck, Lisa. Wish I could help!

  5. I can not wait to see it all in person….they look lovely….

  6. Thanks for the tip Heather!

    I’m thinking I should have a pre-BBQ get-together for my girlfriends and make them help. Great idea? LOL

    With friendship,

  7. I am making this in the fall for a friend’s baby shower. 🙂 Any alterations to the MS directions I should consider?
