About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Posh Clothespins

I need to get ready for church. BUT. I had to show you what I made at 1:00 this morning! This project is so much fun and cute Cute CUTE! Posh Clothespins- and yes, I **glittered** the hinges! It looks like a sweet fairy flew by with some fairy dust (Martha Stewart, thank you very much).

I know. You need some, too. The tutorial is here.

Of course, if you want to leave a comment here I may just send you some.:) I will pick a name tomorrow...

I know what I am going to be doing when my sweeties go to bed tonight.;0

How pretty those are! We used to make fancy clothespins and put a magnet on the backside. Then you can put on the fridge to hold the kiddos' artwork or whatever.

Hi Lori
Your decorated clothespins (pegs to us!!) are gorgeous. I would love to win some, but if I don't, I will definately have a go at decorating some myself. Thanks for sharing your creativity.
Happy Sunday.
