Off to the local Dollar Store and back in 20 minutes with a package of 40 clothespins.
Out came the scraps, glitter, Mod Podge, paint, distress ink and all kinds of assorted cr@p. Once I started I could not stop.
Glitter filled the air and the sweet smell of Mod Podge made me dizzy with joy. I was in Craft Heaven. My mind wandered as I worked feverishly. As I got down to my last clothespin I was sorry I hadn’t bought more. At least two or three more packages. Perhaps, I should have bought all the clothespins they had? I knew that now was the time to open up a store on Etsy. I was going to sell my clothespins. It didn’t matter that mine looked similar to the other 4,157 clothespins for sale. I could make a fortune. I could retire. I could…
WT#? 4,157 items listed for sale under clothespins? Okay, so cancel the retirement party. Bum-mer. And then my dear husband Tony rubbed salt into my gaping wound by asking, “What are you going to do with all those clothespins?”
So friends, help me out here. What the heck do I do with my 40 altered clothespins? Anyone want a package? If you do, let me know what the heck you would do with them and some lucky follower can be the proud owner of EllenBee’s First Limited Edition Clothespins.
There will not be a second edition.
The camellia flower is made from tissue paper I got in NYC.
I added a bit of sparkle because Paris is the city of Love.
Although you can't see the detail, I used dress pattern paper for this set.
Two more tissue flowers, I love the large daisy with a pearl button center.
I just added another YouTube video. I hope you'll visit! http://youtu.be/sw3j0Y91cNU
