I just finished the Deck Out Your Kitchen Swap and my partner received, so I'm good to post this stuff now.  She said she needed magnets and I figured, what can be better than magnets that hold a bunch of sheets of paper at once?

Enter the clothespin magnets!

They're so easy to make--I'll have to make a set for my fridge, too.  I'm sure there are a million tutorials of them posted because I can't have been the first one to think of this, but there is one at a blog I write for: http://www.boredla.com/craftiness-is-next-to-godliness-organize-your-fridge-with-clothespin-magnets/.  I'm sure that I've seen these magnets somewhere else before, as well, but I don't know where off the top of my head.

My swap partner didn't mention needing any candles, but I figured that one can never have too many, so I made her a few teacup candles out of vintage teacups that I thrifted.  Since her kitchen is cream, blue, and red, I figured these would fit in pretty well. (These pictures are from before I trimmed the wicks.)

I really like these both, I think I see clothespin magnets in my fridge's future.
also, I've been itching to try those teacup candles for my boyf's mom... are they any more difficult than they look?

They're ridiculously easy.  I wrote a tut for them here (the process is what I did, the pictures are not mine): http://www.boredla.com/craftiness-is-next-to-godliness-teacup-candles/
...but the gist of it is, get microwave soy wax, melt it per the instructions, put a wick in a thrifted teacup, and then pour the wax in and let it set.  Stir in a scent to the melted wax before you pour it if you want.
Good luck!  I'd love to see the candles and/or magnets if you ever end up making them.
