Spools & Stickpins

Good morning everyone.  I don't know about you, but I am loving the fall weather.  Today was gorgeous and full of sunshine.  The leaves are falling and wonderful warm color surrounded me.

 
The warm tones were the inspiration for today's project and 3 Girl JAM provides just the right ribbon to complement that.  The Harvest Bundle is perfect for autumn crafting.  You can find yours here.

 
In the last year or so, I have really enjoyed making stickpins.  I am gathering quite a collection of these little beauties.  When I have the opportunity to enter a stickpin swap, I try to do so.  When the opportunity came to alter a spool and add stickpins, I knew it would be a lot of fun and I needed to join.


Of course, I needed a few supplies to go with the gorgeous 3 Girl JAM ribbon.
Spools (from Michaels)
Recollections flowers and adhesive rhinestones
Tim Holtz Ideology tissue wrap
Ripe Persimmon, Gathered Twigs & Seedless Preserves Distress Inks
Lace, stick pins, charms and beads from my stash
Delta Ceramcote - Light Ivory
Mod Podge, Hot Glue, Glossy Accents

Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
