Cute Altered Clothespin

Is this not the cutest decorative clothes pin you've ever seen?  

Last week I had gotten an invitation in the mail to the new mini and Sale-a-bration catalogs open house!!  I been waiting for an open house and one came up so I called my sister and see if she wanted to attend it with me, and she did.  We had a great time!  She was especially thrilled because Terri was selling her retired stamp sets there too and my sister has been on the hunt for the "Crayon Kids" set and lo and behold it was there.  She grabbed it and hung onto it tightly as she looked through the other stamp sets.  She was thrilled!! 

Then we went over to the make and take.  I was expecting to make a card but Terri had this adorable clothespin to make.  It's a regular size clothespin and she had a hole in the one end for the brad. I thought she had drilled the holes in all of the clothespins but she had used the crop-a-dial.  How clever was that?  Using that didn't even enter my head!  I think I just need to have mine sitting out so it is visible and handy to grab when drilling something comes to mind!!! 

I think it would be fun to decorate the clothespins with fabric (decorative paper was used here) and using fabric for the flowers on the clothespins used outside when you hang the laundry out. Don't you think that would look cute on the line?  Or do you think it would attract birds?  And we all know what birds do to laundry!! LOL  I just thought it would be a cute idea.  I may give it a try someday and see how it looks.  When I have time on my hands!!! LOL

Anyway, the make and take was very fun and SO darn cute!!!  Thank you Terri for the invitation and for the fun make and take!!!  

My sister and I put an order together.  I don't remember what I ordered but I do know I can't wait to get it!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
