The keys to peace, love, and _____. How would you fill in the blank? Think about that - I have my answer.
These are key fobs for those of you like me who constantly lose their keys.
I swear I have to put them right on top of my pocketbook each time I come in the house or they go missing for days.
One night while playing around with some of my torn cotton ribbons, I found one of my sets of keys in my work box. (Yes, there are several!) How they got there, I do not know.
Since I had some lengths of ribbon just sitting there, I picked up a piece and tied it on the keyring. PRESTO! A light bulb lit up over my head. (The old incandescent one.) Why not make key fobs?
Well, you know me and my extensive collections of everything under the sun. I have hundreds of keys and key blanks. I took a handful out to the painting screens and using Rust-Oleum spray paint in Sweet Pea and Heirloom White, I painted the keys front and back.
On the white keys, I got out an all-over curlicue stamp and permanent black ink and just stamped away. I left the pink ones pink because everyone knows you are always pretty in pink.
Of course, keys need key tags. Yes, I had those in my stash, too.
Remember my word is LESS this year. I am trying to use up Horror Monster, the affectionate name for my craft supply stash.
Out came the letter stamps. I stamped PEACE on one side and LOVE on the other after painting the tag a sage green.
I attached pink calico ribbons to the black and white keys.
Then tied on the key tags with the ribbon.
PEACE received a star. LOVE received an asterisk. There is always some extra something attached to LOVE. Right?
On the pink keys I attached the key tag to the key and then tied the ribbon (turquoise calico this time). This was much better, but I was not going to untie all the pink ribbons to change the other set of keys.
So, the key to peace, love, and <blank>. How do you fill it in? The easiest answer would be the old standard "rock-n-roll".
Or you might want to go with "charity".
You be the judge.
As for me, I am going with peace, love, and happiness. Because I am truly happy I can now find my keys!
Peace out, you 60's babes!
