T-A-D #18 Clothes pegs

This is my thing of the day. It is not an original idea, but I like it - it makes my new notice board a little more elegant ...

(Clothes pegs, interesting paper, glue).

It may not be your idea but you have carried it out well. I also loved your little hugs (or expletives!) in a handy dispenser. Your neighbour sounds very trying.
In case you don't pop back to that post-the clay I used on the green lady doll was air drying clay. I have vague story ideas about them, little biographies or character traits. Even if they don't have a story I find it easyish to think of one because they seem like little people to me. That may make me sound totally loopy-honestly I'm not!

WOW! these are so cool! and you won't believe this, but i am surrounded by clothespins myself! i've been making little clips this afternoon, nowhere as nifty as yours, but what a fun coincidence.

i'm loving your TAD posts! :)

I think I am going to try this one too!

Sarah - I think your dolls are SO lovely - I must try and find some of the air-drying clay here. All I can find is a paper mache paste that air-dries,but it doesn't leave a nice smooth surface ...

aimee - I am going to pop over just now - I hope you posted your clips!

freshly found - I am pretty sure you will make something beautiful and clever!!

If I could only find lovely wooden clothes pegs, I would also so be copying this... lovely!

I like this. A lot.

kendalee - My pegs are not that beautiful - they are quite cheap wood and a bit rough. I do have a few really nice bamboo ones, but they are considerably more expensive, though!

esti - I think they look quite cool on my noticeboard!

I could send you some clay of you can't find it. Let me know.
