Make it for Monday #2 with a GiVe AwAy!

Welcome to the second Make it for Monday! I'm just wicked full of inspiration for holiday decorating now that the turkey is digested. Our family is trying to do a more simplified Christmas this year...we actually say that every year, but *this* year, we mean business. I've been crafting gifts for extended family members, and I am working really hard not to spend a ton of money on decorating. It's been fun to s-t-r-e-t-c-h my brain to use stuff on hand in new, creative ways. And it didn't even hurt
This week I worked on clothespins.  Sounds fascinating, yeah? I've made them before, and got the idea from Kim at Twice Remembered. Anyway, I made an extra Christmas-y set for a Giveaway.

I mean what's a party without a door prize???

All ya need to do to enter is link up a post this week. Easy Peasy.  I think these would be so cute strung up over a doorway with different year's family Christmas picture, vintage Santa postcards, or images from past holiday celebrations.
I'm sure you uber-talented gals can come up with something.

So what's been keeping you busy this week?  Let's see what 'cha got!
(cough, fine print, cough)

I'm not sure I understand the link thing...I'm sorry, I'm kinda new to all of this...I need to link to a post of something I've been making? Is that how this works?

Your clothespins came out so nicely! Did you put magnets on the back? I just transformed a whole package into stand up clothespin picture holders. Gave three to my daughter's preschool teacher with a We're Thankful for You card, I'm the room mom, and she loved them. I thought they'd make great little stocking stuffers. I also added a bit of decoration on the front of mine and mod podged both front and back side of the pins. I had planned on posting those next Monday, mine are more cutesy but I really like the shabby chic-ness of yours so maybe I'll be back at the craft store to by another package. They are so easy to make while doing something mindless like watching television.

Those are too cute! So many ideas...so little time! Rene'
As always, I got a chuckle out of your family re-paint...too close to home...the perfect shade *is* everything! When I get going, the staff at the paint store suddenly is very busy when I show up...
