Copycat: Glitter clothespins

I don't feel like I have a creative bone in my body . . . Really.

No really.

If anybody tries to get me to come up with any sort of original idea, I usually fall flat on my face. It's bad. Real bad.

*Enter Blogland*

Blogland is packed full of creativity. It's amazing! Amazing I tell you. There are so many ingenious and resourceful women are out there. And with the plethora of pictures, tutorials, and step-by-step instructions, it makes it easy for a non-creative person like me to still have fun crafting and creating new things.

So if I ever come across an idea that I just love, I'll post it here under "copycat" and you can be inspired too. Besides, isn't imitation that best form of flattery?

I saw this idea over at My Sweet Savannah, hanging vintage Halloween cards with glittery clothespins.

I was thrilled with how they turned out. And now my kitchen is ready for Halloween!

Have I mentioned that I love Halloween?
