Remember the Spirograph?

I loved this thing and I think this was the beginning of my paper art passion.
My MIL was sitting for the kids on Friday, so I could enjoy a dinner with my husband and well yes, we went to the ice fishing show too! Any hoo, we brought a wreath to my MIL and she had a wreath hanger up in the closet, well DH went looking for the wreath hanger and what to my wonderous eyes would appear but an almost perfect 1967 VINTAGE KENNER SPIROGRAPH! I went WILD, I've been looking for one, hoping to find one at the local rescue mission etc. Well anyway, needless to say the kids and I can't pull ourselves away from the thing! Here's a sample of our creations! Don't you just love it!

I loved that spirograph back in the day! No end to the fun things you can make with it. What a stroke of luck you found one. Nice job on the ornaments!

Oh, yes, I think most of us papercrafters loved Spirograph. I know they were a hot item on Ebay for a while. Are you on Facebook? Andrea
