It all started one day when I was responding to a comment left on one of my blog posts. Afterwards I hopped over for a visit.
It was a blog that I have visited before and love it. Suddenly my eyes spied this on her side bar.
After clicking on the link (521 Lake Street) I was hooked.
I had never heard of a spoolie, but oh how cute! I was so busy at the time that I almost resisted. But, no it was not to be. I had to join in!
Making spoolies is addicting and I had so much fun! My swap partner was Laurie from Laurie Stamps. She is so talented and wait till you see what she sent me. But first I will show you what I made for her.
I started with a couple of small spoolies. One wrapped with bakers twine and the other with vintage lace. I added a few little vintage items from my stash and bits and pieces of moss, berries, pearls, and flowers.
Then I thought it would be fun to make a jumbo spoolie. I had bought this large spool of turquoise twine at Christmas. I added a furry vintage chick and some lavender & yellow blossoms. An old piece of handmade lace and a music banner.
It’s easier to tell how big it is in this pic. Now that’s one big spoolie. lol!
This picture shows them tucked in her egg box.
Now Laurie is such a fantastic artist. Look at what she sent me. Is this fabulous or what? Love the scene and how she put it in a little box! Sweet, sweet, sweet!
And my gift box, oh my! Love, love that glitter!!!
She also sent me some fun little treasures and a darling card. I have to tell you how much I adore the little chicks. When we were young we always got at least one fuzzy chick like this in our Easter basket. How did she know? Hee-hee.
Thanks so much Laurie, I love my gifts! And thank you Sandy for puttting this swap together!
