Playing with my Papertrey Ink's All Through the House kit. This week I stripped down my entire workdesk (3.5' x 5') took off the plywood, swapped out the seriously tuckered out on the verge of immanent demise saw horses, flipped the plywood and put things back. Why would I do this?

The Pure Poppy ink pad made break for freedom (ultimately seeking refuge in an empty dishpan under the table in the opposite direction that it fell.

I also went a little Clothespins/pegs mad and scoured the stores for them and came home with 4 sizes.

Small snowman ornaments which fit in the matchbox one can make with the dies in the kit.

Matchbox turned into an ornament with a matching frame.
More fun with clothespins. A washi covered sheet of galvanized roof flashing with pins for holding papers and notes to self. Magnets too. It hangs on the door so I have an extra chance at remembering things before I go out : ).

Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for more crafty goings on.

Love the little matchbox ornaments. So much so that I pinned one of them! My confession that I pin and usually don't do anything with them. I'm a pin addict...... haaa

I love working with clothes pins. I usually buy the regular size ones in the laundry aisle at WalMart. They are so much cheaper than the ones from the craft department.

I'm finally getting around to some desks today - better late than never.
Happy belated WOYWW

Your Note board looks like a brilliant idea! I may have to borrow that one. Clothespins can be so much fun and there is no better time to regorganize/ change/ update a workspace like run away supplies! Glad you found your ink.

Happy WOYWW!
