HA HA!!! Spool Rhymes with Stool!

Have I ever told you that I have the maturity level of a 13 year old boy? True story :)

So there's lots of cleaning out closets going on at my grandpa's house right now and one of the random finds was a box FULL of old wooden spools! My grandma wasn't even a sewer so we have no clue what they were doing there! Being the crafter that I am, I scarfed them right up and got to work on an impromptu and fun project - ornaments!!!

All Thursday night I played with ribbon, jingle bells and old buttons :)

Friday night I made this last minute display for them out of a log, another wildly funny word :)

I think they are SO cute and I plan on keeping lots for myself! They were a hit at our show on Saturday, which wasn't our greatest show BUT we met two SUPER cool crafters also in 'the scene'. You can find these two lovely ladies here and here. I look forward to seeing them at Deluxe next month!!

This was a mighty slow show but we managed to entertain ourselves as always :) Here's April modeling the two beautiful flower pins/hair clips we got from the aforementioned crafters.

And my cheesetastic mug. Notice that the woman next to us was using a drying rack to display her jewelry! I guess we had a good idea a while back :)

One other random thing about this show is that it was held where I went to 7th and 8th grade, EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO!!!!!!!! It was SO strange how weird memories came back when I walked the halls there!
So at the end of this week, I'll have some UBER cool news to share...just know that my smile has never been bigger! Also mega cool is that my sista is going to be here on Saturday!!! This is an exciting week!
Talk to you soon!


  1. sorry to hear the show was slow, but cant wait to hear the good news.... :D
    see you at deluxe!~

  2. I love the log thing. That was a pretty cool idea. Glad the spools came in so handy...

  3. We didn't do well at that show last year either. I think I've officially given up on school shows.

    The ornaments are adorable! My boyfriend went to Union, too, but he's older than you.

  4. I've done that same show before, and it was no good for me either. I typically don't have that great of luck at school/church craft shows. It looks like you girls still managed to have a good time though, but you probably always bring the fun times. :-)

    Don't make us wait too long for the news, I'm dying over here!!
