A Labor of Love

My alphabet cards finally arrived today!  It feels like I have been working on this project forever and I was so excited to finally post them in my shop tonight.  Now on to planning a superhero birthday party that is just around the corner!

Clothes Pin Bling

I ordered alphabet cards for my new alphabet prints and I want to be able to hang them from a ribbon.  I thought it would be fun to give the clothes pins I am going to use a little punch.  I am a big fan of glitter and I had an unopened bottle of Mod Podge calling my name so I gave it a go and am thrilled with the outcome.

The process was as easy as could be.  I added one layer of Mod Podge to the top surface of each pin and sprinkled on some glitter.

Nothing is more annoying than a glitter project that sheds all over the place so in order to secure the glitter I put on a second coat of Mod Podge with one more light sprinkle of glitter.

This method secures the glitter very well.  I am also planning to add some strong magnets to the back of some of them and use them on the fridge to hold our favorite art projects.  I love 'em!

Busy Busy Busy has been so long since my last post.  This is largely because I just opened a new Etsy shop ( of alphabet prints.  Here are a few of my favorites:

I have a few projects up my sleeve, though, so posting will resume!
