Keepin' it together {mini clothespins}

It's so funny how many emails I have gotten & continue to get (since YHL house crashed us and put this picture up) asking about the fun clothespins in this family pic & where the heck I got them...

The truth is I painted a package of mini clothespins myself with cheap-o acrylic paint (found at Michaels) and it cost me hardly anything.
So I thought I would show you these little beauties close up because they are one of the easiest and most colorful projects I have ever done. They make me smile every time I give em' a glance and I love to try to find new ways to use them.

Whatcha' think?! Wouldn't they be fun at a party holding up photos or even used to clip a card onto a present? I know they are such simple little do-dads but I couldn't help but share them with you! It never fails that some of the things I love the most in my home are the cheapest, easiest to make, and craziest. Do any of you ever find that to be the case? Tell me that this gal isn't completely cray-cray!

I hope these clothespins got your brain ready to paint some color! Now go color the world with your creative happiness!
