I am participating in the Altered Spool Swap. It's so much fun. You should check out the gallery; we're just getting started but there are so many creative spools posted already.

In any case, my wonderful partner alwaysinmyroom received yesterday, so I can share photos now of the ocean themed spool I sent her.

All of the materials for this spool were in my (massive) stash, including the shells, the green sequins (they were my grandmother's!) and the hideous earrings/charms that became the coral. I knew I'd use those some day!


Here's a closeup of the mermaid's sweet face. Isn't she a cutie? I hope she likes her new fins and seashell bra. She's carrying around a little pearl. Does she not see the giant pearl behind her?

I can't believe the coral were earrings at one time...

I love my little sea themed spool!
