One of the features of Word Press blogs is the ability to see the search engine terms that people use to find your blog. I usually glance through them to get a feel for what people are interested in. The one in particular that caught my eye today was “are spun cotton ornaments like needlefelting?” I haven’t seen that one before, so for the inquiring soul who entered that search, the answer is no. Spun cotton ornaments and needlefelting are nothing alike. People are making some very adorable needlefelted figures, but the techniques used are quite different.
A popular search that has shown up a dozen times this week, in various forms, is people who are looking for zebra and/or leopard print crepe paper streamers 🙂 In case you are wondering, I don’t have a source. I did buy some quite a while ago from Hobby Lobby, but last time I checked they were no longer carrying them. ( I never have figured out what to do with the ones I bought – I’m still waiting for inspiration to strike.)
Another first time search that I noticed today is “how do you stiffen crepe paper?” You can’t really stiffen crepe paper, but by using a spray-on adhesive, you could glue two thicknesses together, which would give you a little more body. Crepe paper is especially limp this time of year, due to the high humidity. The humidity will also cause the colors to run and rub off on one another, if you are using two different colors right next to each other.
That is probably enough chit-chat about search engine terms to last for quite some time 🙂 But I’m sure that there will be other interesting searches tomorrow and the next day, that will lead people to this site…
