Wee Memories: Etsy or Pinterest anyone?

Happy Saturday everyone. Here in the USA, its a holiday weekend! Happy Memorial Day! A special shout out to my husband who is a Pilot in the Navy! I am so very proud of him and privileged to be his wife and have his as the father of my son……..

We’ve got another fun challenge in store for you over at Wee Memories! So inspiring. All you have to do is create something inspired by Etsy or Pinterest. I Pinterest all the time. As a matter of fact, the Iphone now has a Pinterest app so I can pinterest on the go! YEA YEA!  Pinterest is invite only so if you need an invite, email me and I’ll invite you! Etsy is another amazing site. I have bought so many amazing things off of Etsy! My recent love, MoldMuse, is an etsy shop!  And I just bought these cute coasters from Etsy a few weeks ago. So the problem you might find with this challenge is just being inspired toooo much!! 🙂

I was inspired by this photo on Pinterest and that made me think about this fun project I saw over at The Twinery and just had to try it.

And here is what I created.. Now I know I didn’t wander too far off the block with this one. They were just too cute to not recreate. I hope you aren’t disappointed…..

I painted the wooden spools with various Jenni Bowlin Paint Dabbers. I applied a thick coat of Glossy Accents, wrapped the twine (From The Twinery – the best I have found. The twine is thick and the colors are luscious). And then just adhered a tiny magnet to the back!

Be sure to head on over to the Wee Memories blog to check out the deets on this challenge! And a big thanks to May Arts for sponsoring….
