I had recently seen a craft using clothespins to make a sort of letter card (another idea for another day) and it inspired me to make a clothespin animal, like an alligator, a shark or a hippo, so that the clothespin would be the animal's mouth.  But I couldn't manage a tidy enough way to do so (yet another idea for another day).  So instead I went with making a flower, with scrapbook paper and some paint chip flower centers.  The clothespin can stand up and you can also use it as a clip for a little memo reminder or photo display or something like that.

I made a bunch and varied the color combos:

There is a large flower on both sides of the clothespin, so I wrote my greeting on the back flower.  I imagine you can even add a magnet to it to increase its use further.  Would make a nice little teacher's or grandparent/babysitter gift tag with the photo of your kid clipped to it.

They are very cute and sweet and I agree, great grandparent or teacher gift.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

What a precious way to brighten someone's day!  Having a flower card on a desk would make people smile.

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
