Challenge #44 - Anything Goes - Tuesday Alchemy

Hello again my super sweet friends and Happy Happy Tuesday!!  Hope you are doing well - it sure is quiet in blog land.  I helped my sister get all the Christmas packages wrapped and it feels great to have that part behind us.  

Today's Challenge with Tuesday Alchemy is Anything Goes and I decided to shake things up a little bit.  More about my project in a moment because I want to share we have a terrific sponsor this week and the winner will receive their choice of 4 digital images from:
Sassy Studio Designs

Our design team has some great projects to inspire you this week and you can find all their links at Tuesday Alchemy Challenge Blog and the design team links are on the left side of the blog.  They sure would love for you to visit and leave a sweet comment for them.

For this weeks challenge I decided to shake things up a little.  I have been wanting to create things with craft supplies I already have and came across numerous packages of Shabby Chic Clothes pins I found at Michael's quite a while ago.  I also had this pink round container (photo shows only the lid) but wasn't sure what to create.  The lid is about 3.5" in diameter and 1" high.  



Ironically I started playing around with the clothes pins and  attaching them one by one around the lip of the lid.


  



I started laughing because I realized I could create a small container to hold some of my most used crafting tools and keep it on top of my craft table.  I was so excited and it was a super easy project and I love it.  No glue or adhesive was needed and the container is sturdy and steady.  



It took 20 clothes pins to make the container and only had four left over.  I just love when a project just falls into place easily and quickly.  

So my dear friends please join in our challenge this week.  I can't wait to see what you create.  How cool is this??


Have a blessed day!

Hugs and smiles

  2. Hi Laine
    I had to smile when I saw your creation because this is exactly the way I store my clothes pegs I use for help with crafting. But I do not use it as a holder because it's not strong enough. Great cool idea by the way! Love those pegs you used. They are gorgeous!

  3. Laine, This is so clever! What a fantastic container. You've just given my mind a click on something I might be able to do from existing supplies. Thanks! :-D

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
