The weekend to create

Sep 26, 2008 by

Your comments in the vintage sewing giveaway (which is open until Sunday) really inspire me!  With so many wonderful sewing projects in mind, I crafted a reminder for all of us to continue to create…and this vintage spool will also be included in the giveaway.

Creating is the essence of life -Julius Caeser

A few weeks ago, I picked up sheets of vintage transfer type, which I was hoping I could utilize on non-paper items.  Transfer type + wooden spools?  Voila!  It turns out vintage spools are perfect…as is any smooth, porous surface, I suspect.

From sewing projects to transfer type, and everything in between, I wish you a marvelous weekend full of creation!  Thank you all for your wonderful inspirations, and I’ll be back on Monday to announce the winner of the fun giveaway!
