Easter swap...

Just in case you're interested in participating in an Easter crafting swap, Sandy from 521 Lake Street is hosting an Easter swap.   
521 Lake Street Easter Swap
The idea behind this exchange is to make a pretty gift out of a vintage wooden thread spool , or new thread spool.  More details on the exchange and sample ideas can be found here on her blog.  Of course, being over-excited about this exchange, I started messing around in my craft room after the girls went to bed. Here's one version using a miniature putz house.

Happy Friday!  I can't wait to get this weekend started!  
XOXO

It seems so very early in the year to be thinking of Easter already, but it will be here in six weeks - or less! Time to think of bunnies! Your crafts are just precious! xo Nellie

Or for heaven sakes! Where's the spool? Hiding with the thimble! What a cute way to do your project...maybe I'll have to put my thinking cap on before making one!
