A tip of the hat, and a salute to Ray Chavez ~ the oldest known survivor of Pearl Harbor. He left us today at age 106. I am thankful for him, and for ALL Veterans for their service.
May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest ~

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!

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!
