Spoolie swap fun
If you're looking for my Grow Your Blog 2013 party post, you can find it HERE.
A few days ago I showed you this lovely "spoolie" I received from Cissy in a swap sponsored by the Vintage Dragonfly Altered Matchbox Swap group I belong to.
It's a large wooden spool decorated in the Valentine theme.
Today I heard from Cissy that she'd received the one I sent her!
I had a ball making Cissy's!
My spoolie was inspired by one made by my friend Robin Weins for a swap last year; Robin's was red and glittery but for this one I went with soft pinks and white.
And, where Robin's was a bird on a nest, I perched my little bird on top of a grapevine heart.
I'm normally not a fan of 'mushroom birds' but I thought this one, which I found at Michael's, was especially cute with its little tail held high, and all the feathers!
Cissy had sent a gift packet of Valentine themed embellishments, so I included my own little version in her package!
Since it's me, it had to be all vintage ephemera!
Of course, I had to include some occasional stickers and red vintage BUTTONS!
It was a fun swap and so nice to make a new swapping friend!
