Altered Clothespins

So simple but so cute!  I can think of a million uses for these in the home and in the office.  FWIW, these aren't as easy as they look to make.  I have two paper trimmers and neither one has markings for paper that narrow.  Just an FYI :)

My FIRST Blog Award!

Thank you so much to PlusSizeMommy for my very first blog award!

The rules of receiving this award and passing it along to other bloggers are as follows:

the award- upon receipt, the recipient is to list six things that make her/him happy before subsequently passing forward the glee to others. So here goes: 
  1. My Children.  Without them I'd be nothing.  I have no idea how I lived before them or what I did with my time :)  They are amazing and I am thankful every single day that I am able to watch them grow up to be their own distinct persons.
  2. My Husband.  We've been to the depths of Hell and walked out together hand in hand.  We have been through it all and stuck by each other even when we both didn't want to at the same time!  He spoils me rotten and I try to take care of him as best as I can.  We're a great team and if he's the peanut butter, I'm the jelly in life.
  3. Scrapbooking.  This ties in with #1 and #2.  I love to archive our time spent together and watch the kids grow up and remember the little things we'd have otherwise forgotten.
  4. My Computer/iPhone.  I'm totally addicted to the net.  I rarely watch TV so I get my news, entertainment and most social encounters from the net or text.  Yes, most people I know IRL :p
  5. Cooking/Baking.  For the first time I finally I have a functional kitchen and the room to bake.  Having a Kitchenaid helps much :)
  6. Reading.  I love to read anything and everything and have been known to read the back of a cereal box if bored enough.  I love psychological thrillers, mysteries, and stories to make me think.  For fun, I love Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series.  
And now I get to give this to 6 other people in no particular order.

MadeItMyself.com


I've decided to expand upon just Etsy and Ebay for my items. I'm listing some handmade supplies and things that expired without selling on Etsy on Madeitmyself.com.

Could be fun to get in at the very beginning, although I've seen a lot try to make it big and fail. It's free to sell now so we'll just see how it goes.
