Clip it Up!

I love these little clips- they are perfect for hanging scrapbook paper around. I just pounded in a nail to hold the clip.

It gave me the idea to use the clip for photos- who needs frames! The possibilities are endless- get a clip and hang up pictures, cards, prints, etc, etc. That photo is my family when I was about 6 mo.




painted the pot



This little pot got the green. The black plate came from Goodwill- then got painted with some big white spots.


All done....except for the fireplace screen

I'm cheatintg and commenting on your FRIDGE! Did you...decoupage the door??? It looks FUN but I'm SHOCKED at the bravery of it! I LOVE fabric and fun paper, and I LOVE the Word of GOD and thus...love your goods baby. I've never had the creativity to know how to enjoy these small pleasures by having them around me. I need YOU to be my kids' art teacher! lol. Seriously..you're too fun.

A friend of mine covers those little clips with scrapbook paper- just a small strip across the black part of the clip- I can send you a pic....it adds a little bit o' whimsy to the clip. Thought you might like to try it. Have I mentioned- you are my muse. I want to be just like you when I grow up!

Your fireplace looks great!
Great idea for the clips. Just looking at your chalkboard wall is making me anxious to get out of this house so I can have a wall of my very own!

I am still waiting for my birdies!!! :)
