Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
Cleaning up my crafting space a bit and came across some empty thread spools. If you’re a crafter, you know that it’s hard to throw away things sometimes because that thought “I could make something with that” is always close to the top of the brain. I was recently at a crafty store which kind of pumped up my enthusiasm to “making stuff” so those empty thread spools have been saved. Here are some cute ideas for repurposing spools. If anyone has any empty spools, especially old wooden ones, that you don’t want to keep I will gladly take them. But before you decide if you want to keep them or not, have a look at these ideas: click here. As with everything else, there are tons of ideas on Pinterest-many suitable for kids to make, and not necessarily needing “vintage” spools.
Working on cut out cookies this weekend. I think I’m going to cut back on the variety of shapes so I don’t have to bring out every cutter!
The next list for prizes starts here!
Here’s today’s comment prompt: Real tree or artificial tree or no tree?
