Made for PerfectlyBohemian in the Positive Affirmation swap. I've always wanted to make one of these and was so happy to have a chance to finally do it. The old wooden spool is painted with nail polish.


Beads from my stash.


Tassel made of ribbons in the colours she likes best.


The statement is stamped and embellished with stitching, a bit of vintage lace, wrap around ribbon with a beaded end and a purple button to hold that in place.


She wanted something to potentially display at work and I thought a hidden statement might be good. All that shows when it's wrapped up is the row of pretty hearts, only she knows what is written inside.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
