Yesterday was my last day visiting my parents in Cincinnati before heading back to Chicago to lose on our new house...on Tuesday!
We are sad to see our house go...Although when we moved in a year and a half ago, we had a feeling that it wasn't going to be for long. We were right!
Out with the old...
In with the brand new...
Our new place is brand new, and we love it! It's almost finished being built and they have 2 days left to pour the concrete in the driveway, porch and sidewalk.
My mom and I decided to spend yesterday shopping, of course. After hitting up the mall we had to check out the toy store...The Container Store, that is! That's the best place to go to get all the stuff you never knew you needed!
I picked up a bag of bamboo clothespins (much nicer than the old wooden ones I might add). I really have no use for good old fashioned clothespins, so I repurposed them into cute little chip clips!
I cut strips of "Everyday Enchantment" DSP paper from the current Sale-a-Bration catalog, which I think is the prettiest Stampin' Up! paper ever! After I glued those on, I covered the whole clip with a thin layer of Mod Podge, to protect the paper. Then, I tied on ribbon (also Sale-a-Bration) and glued on butterflies that I cut out using then "Beautiful Wings" embosslits. To finish, I sprayed a layer of Smooch, which just makes everything it touches prettier!
What do you think? A set of these would make a cute gift...maybe a housewarming present? I'm thinking of making some sets of these to give to my new neighbors as they start moving in as well.
I'm pooped...shopping and crafting has worn me out! Tomorrow...on the road again!
