I am really loving all the Valentine crafts I am seeing out in blogland! I was very excited when Sue announced her Valentine Spoolie Swap. I got in on an Easter Spoolie swap last spring and they are so fun to make.
Unfortunately, I never heard from my swap partner:( Since they are supposed to be in the mail by tomorrow, I doubt I will. I did go to her blog and leave her a message, she had no email, but she has only posted once since 2011, so I kind of doubt she remembers joining the swap.
Did I let that deter me from making my spoolie? Not one bit! I had a grand time making a spoolie that I would love.
I used some untraditional colors for Valentine's Day! Bright,
primary colors, with the cutest pixie valentine as the center.
I used lace to cove the spool and set the spool on an old jello mold. I them glued multi colored pom-poms around the base of the mold and use some shiny, tinsel to give it some bling.
Doesn't he have the sweetest face?
I had lots of fun making him.
I also made this little heart shaped valentine, also made from a vintage jello mold and included it in the Valentine Box Swap that I am participating in. Linda Lou if you are looking, this is the only peek you are going to get! LOL!
Lots of Valentine crafting going on at my house and a bit of Easter crafting too. Hopefully tonight I will be finishing a small wall hanging that I have been working on. Pics coming soon!
Have a happy Tuesday!
