I dyed these mini wooden clothespin in Rit Dye’s Cherry Red and Fuchsia to create a way to display Valentines Day cards and treats. I dip dyed them in bowls of hot water mixed with the liquid dyes (half and half) then let them dry.
When they were completely dry, I used hot glue from Ad-Tech to add buttons from Buttons Galore and More (Radical Red and the Valentines Day Mix from my Laura Kelly collection of course)
They worked great to display Valentines Day cards and treats that were created using Me and My Peeps designs along with other fun things!
Here are some fun close up shots of the clothespins in action!

Happy Dyeing to Create a Magical Day of Love,

Me and My Peeps love holidays! To spread a little love this Valentines Day, we are sharing a free printable for you to use to create some love to share too.
You can use it to make creative, great things by cutting it up and attaching the pieces to paper, bags, candy and Valentines Day things.
Here is one example of a little Valentine gift bag. This tiny brown bag came from Canvas Corp.

We got a fabulous box of products from Scupley this week and decided to test it out by creating a little girl pilgrim Peep. The clay is amazingly simple and fun to work with. The first thing I did was flip my portfolio to my Thankgiving collection of designs and illustrations.
I rolled little pieces in my palms and molded each part of her little body. To get her round hands a shoes to attach like a stick Peep, I used wire. When she was all assembled, I put her in the over…following the directions on the Sculpey box.
I added a Black Beauty button from my collection with Buttons Galore to her neckline and now she is now a part of an adorable Thanksgiving wreath. To check that out, visit the blog post on Laura Kelly’s INKlings where you can see the tutorial for her pet turkey too.
‘Me and My Peeps’ are planning a Frankenstein Movie Party and you are invited to join in and do the same. Frankenstein is a movie with a rich history, written by a GIRL…way back in the 1800′s. Now that is creepy cool we think.
To get started, you will need an invitation. Here is a free downloadable one that you can use featuring us in costumes.
And here is a free download for cupcake toppers and place cards too.
This is just how adorable your cupcakes can be with a simple frosting job and some yummy Wilton sugar crystals on top when you add the toppers.
Place cards come in super handy when you are learning kids names (or trying to separate kids that cause…well you know…trouble when they sit side by side).
And to keep those kiddos busy when they finish making Frankenstein crafts, here is a word search puzzle you can download too.
Happy Partying Frank Style,
Me and My Peeps
It is true, I travel a lot, Me and My Peeps love to explore and learn about new places. In sorting through pictures and memories, I came across lots of times that we were happily flying from place to place thanks to our favorite airline, DELTA! It all starts when we check out luggage. The guys that meet us are always so happy to see us.
Getting through security isn’t so much fun. Who likes to lie down flat on their back and go through a conveyer belt tunnel?
Sometimes getting to the plane is a journey in and of itself, riding on buses and trams and even being out by the action.
Delta fits us perfectly.
We love Delta because the flight attendants and pilots always make us feel special and treat us with respect and kindness, while keeping us safe to get where we want to go.
They respect our little pet friends and when they sneak out of our packed luggage and end up on board, they are welcomed too. Nice pilots let us look into their cockpits.
Being in airports on layovers is a blast with Me and My Peeps! We love to shop and meet new people!
If you ever see Me and My Peeps on a Delta flight or in an airport, stop us and say hello. If Laura is with us (the artist who draws and designs us), ask her to draw you. She happily will.
Me (Laura) and My Peeps
