Oops almost forgot Day 7

Day 7 was "my day" ~ yay! It's alway exciting when the day that your gifts are to be open by the other people in the swap. (I also got to open Sabina's gift which I can't talk about until the swap is over because some of the other people haven't opened her gift yet).

I created Shabby Chic Keys
for Day 7 of the All-Canadian Valentine ART Swap, which you can take a look at here.

Ingredients for Shabby Chic Keys:
a collection of old keys, Golden gesso (white), appropriate sayings and flat marbles (or whatever the real name is for them), a trusty glue gun, sparkly rope-ish stuff, gemstones and a touch of glitter.

Assigning suitable says was a lot of fun. A few of the sayings I used included: "More Glitter", "Jewellery Queen",
"Tweet Tweet" and "A friend loves at all times".

Most keys are threaded with ribbon or lace. Two of the keys I made into pins that can be attached to a surface or be worn as a brooch.

I like these little creations so much that I may actually make one for myself.
Please leave me a comment below if you have suggestions for what you think my saying should read...

I love my key! Whenever I'm stuck where I don't want to be, I am going to pull it out and use it!
I'm thinking about yours.....hmmmmmm. I'll have to get back to you on that.
Thanks for my sweet "a friend loves at all times". Perfect!
