PRETTY SPOOLIES!

These little spoolies were my project for the DIVAs in September... old wooden spools decorated with lace, ribbon, faux moss & flowers, and birdies Click to biggify.



The copper wires were easy to bend, but not too flexible. They can hold pictures, or little love notes, or place cards.



You could also take all the old thread off, and paint/paper them.

Thanks for looking!

Holy Canoli ~ 60?!?!?!

A NEW PRINTER'S TRAY

I had ordered some KaiserCraft "Beach Shack" papers and embellies. Once they came, I sat down to make some cards... I got 3 made, and then, as author Stephen King would say, "My muses shat upon my head"!
I no longer wanted to make cards, but instead, some kind of display piece! I went through my stash, and came up with a very old 7Gypsies printers tray. I knew immediately that I wanted something simple yet inspiring.
With a sea sponge, I dabbled some sand and grey paint around the tray edges, then got to work gluing in the papers and a few 'live' embellies.
It turned out just the way I had envisioned it ~ and in only a few days!!
Nota Bene ~ the paper in the middle of the porthole {right center} is actually bright white reflective paper that throws a rainbow when tilted.



As always, click to biggify ~
And learn to listen to your inner voices/muses! You never know where they will lead you. I had never EVEN dreamed of doing a tray with this line, but I am SO glad I did!

THE SOFT RAIN ~

We've had the most perfect day today ~ the kind of day I dream about! Woke up to soft grey skies, and lovely gentle rains. Had no particular plans. Lounged about with the Sunday paper and my beloved 'Jumbles' I thought about getting lost into a great British movie, but then decided to go upstairs and do a wee bit of straightening up in the studio...
The soft rain continued ~
Got a wee bit of straightening up done, and then relaxed into reading some SARK books ~
The soft rain continued ~
Read some more, then enjoyed a bit more substantial downpour, and around 3 PM, the rain finally ended. But our skies stayed a lovely soft grey ~ no glaring sunlight! We are due for more showers later, and I'm looking forward to falling asleep to their sounds.
Dear hubby fixed us a marvelous dinner of mahi-mahi with orange marmalade sauce ~
Now I'm up in the Nest, waiting to see what kind of creative inspiration strikes me. I want to work on something 'small', so we will see what happens!
Wishing you ALL perfect days!
