• Welcome to My Creative Year!

    Thanks so much for coming to see what I've been up to. I'm in the midst of a self-challenge to *create* for a year straight. I needed something to fill a weird void I was feeling, and exploring different styles of art and creativity seems to fit the bill! So, Welcome! I'm glad you've come for a visit...
  • Heartfelt Thanks

    I don't always have a chance to thank everyone who leaves such lovely comments on my projects. I just want to express my appreciation for your encouragement and compliments on my creative journey. You are all greatly appreciated!

Love this idea

Aren’t these the cutest?

I want to poach this idea.  They’re Christmas ornaments made from old wooden thread spools!  I went to a craft show at the local high school this morning, and among other things, I found these super cute ornaments!  One is hand painted, the other is simply done with stickers and beads.  I.  Adore.  This.  Idea!

I inherited a bunch of my Mom’s old sewing stuff, and in the mix were a bunch of spools of thread that I bet are from the 1960s.  All wooden spools.  Some large.  Some small.  My mind is going crazy with the possibilities!  I had to share this idea with everyone.  I’m loving these so so soooo much!  They were bought for stocking stuffers, but the inspiration is going to remain with me.

  1. Thanks so much! I was messing around with my blog the other day and noticed an option to add snow during the holidays. 🙂 Of course I took advantage of it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. The photography on your site is really beautiful. I love macro photography – and you do it well!

  2. They are lovely. I also enjoy a sprinkling of snow on your page.
