Shake It Up!!! Do the Pom Pom Blog Hop

I probably now know MORE about Pom Poms than I ever thought possible...
maybe even MORE than I really need to know!
Thank you
for really Shakin' Things Up Here!

I'm so excited to Shake My Pom Poms at ya'll today.
Since I
I thought it only fitting...
that I should finally come up with a mouse
in a thimble.


You're lucky I'm writing this post at the 11th hour...
so I'll spare you all the details of coming up with
my little mouse pattern
(we can save that for another time).

I figured a mouse in a thimble would be the way to go...
you would only see her body and arms...
I wouldn't have to worry about legs.
I She I?....ok SHE had to have legs...
and then she told me she was
just standing around in her thimble.
AND she wanted 
MORE Pom Poms!

Here she is in her little
Pastel Pom Pom Boa
Tres Chic don't you think?
And what about that parasol?
She is one stylin mouse!

Of course...it's sometimes hard 
to post on the last day of a blog hop.
Why You Ask?
Because if I'm not totally finished with my project
(which ok...is usually the case)
sometimes....it's really...
hard not to be influenced by those 
awesome bloggers before me.

Take for instance
she made the coolest pom pom flowers from
She used over 900 Q-Tips!
I HAD to try it!

We had only 16 Q-Tips in the house.
But not much of a pom pom...hahaha

Then there was Joan over at
and her Bikini Pom Pom Pillow
(I still LOL when I think about it)

Hmmm...I wonder...

oh wait...
a thought...

Bikini Mouse with her
Pom Pom Sea Urchin

Ok...really and truly...
DID have 
an original thought all along.
You see....
 my goal is one day...
to become one of ...
Mdm Samm's Cheerleaders!

Of course early this morning I was strollin thru 
the Pom Pom blogs of the day...
Wouldn't ya know it?
had a Cheerleading Barbie!
With the cutest little Coca Cola Juke Box!
I almost ran out today to see if I could find one...
but I'm crazy busy getting ready for a quilt show...
so instead
I just took one last picture!
Do you think the signs are too much? 

Thanks for visiting!
I hope you smiled.
Be sure to see who else is
Shakin it Up

Lynn ~ The Thimblemouse >"<

P.S...omgosh...I am posting after the midnight deadline...it's amazing I am posting at all...you just wouldn't believe the night...first there was a BUG...eeeewwww....one of the cats must have found it and brought it in to play....I couldn't concentrate to write this...eventually my BIG STRONG HERO SPOUSE saved the day and smooshed the bug! And then....I kept losing the internet connection...which would be no big deal...except that I was writing this blog! Yep...time for a 'thimblefull' of something...maybe THREE thimblefulls...and sleep...Niteys!
P.S.2....I do not believe this...now the post will NOT Publish...ok...just shoot me now! Make that FOUR thimbleFULLS!!!!
