Spools & Stickpins

Good morning everyone.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I am loving the fall weather.  Today was gorgeous and full of sunshine.  The leaves are falling and wonderful warm color surrounded me.

The warm tones were the inspiration for today's project and 3 Girl JAM provides just the right ribbon to complement that.  The Harvest Bundle is perfect for autumn crafting.  You can find yours here.

In the last year or so, I have really enjoyed making stickpins.  I am gathering quite a collection of these little beauties.  When I have the opportunity to enter a stickpin swap, I try to do so.  When the opportunity came to alter a spool and add stickpins, I knew it would be a lot of fun and I needed to join.

Of course, I needed a few supplies to go with the gorgeous 3 Girl JAM ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
