Today's Blog Candy Day and Eye Candy, too

Sorry I haven't had time to post daily but it's that time of year. I've lost so much time and now scrambling to "catch up"...is that possible?

Thank you so much to those of you who expressed condolences upon the passing of my dear friend, Mary Edith. If any of you have passed up the opportunity to befriend someone much older than you are, I would encourage you to try it. Older people (um, that would be me (eek!) but I'm thinking of those in their 70's -80's) have so much wisdom to share and are so in need of younger company.

My next posts will be Christmas cookies and recipes. Hmmm...maybe the 12 days of cookies?

At any rate, don't forget TODAY IS BLOG CANDY DAY!! I've added some things to the list...wink, wink. Click here to see just a few of them. It is Christmas, right? If you follow me, thank you! You have until 7:00 this evening to play.


Now onto my project. I saw a simpler version of these online somewhere. I was thinking a shabby look would compliment the clothespins since some them aren't perfect.

I painted them with white acrylic, decoupaged the paper on both sides (I printed the words directly onto my paper first using a computer generated font), sprayed them with sealer and then sanded each one.

After they were sanded, I glued on buttons and those cute metal thingys...actually, they began life as push pins but the pin back broke off. Now I'm trying figure out how to break the rest of them!!

I used a pre-fab vellum tag and just punched out a circle for the center, stamped my sentiment and glued it on with Mono-multi.

What do you think?

Merry Christmas and don't forget to play for the candy!
