238 clothespins...

That's just wrong. From now on, everything, and everyone leaving this house will be adorned with ribbon in some manner.

It sure is pretty though... I have it in 5 large glass compotes that I bought on clearance for a wedding (I do freelance floral design) that I never used, and couldn't return. HA! Mine now!

And to answer Alex's question, I bought a couple of skeins of yarn (I learned to crochet over the weekend, like I needed another hobby), and a couple of the new clear Inkadinkado sets (this one and this one), and I'll be going back for this one and this one. Now, these aren't the super high quality photopolymer like PaperTrey or My Favorite Things, but I've found that with some chalk ink and a steady hand, they do okay. And with a 40% off coupon in hand, well, you know how it goes... but no more ribbon!

That's a lot of clothespins! I thought about doing that with my ribbon too. We'll see if I have the patience for that! Love those sets too! The bird ones especially! Wish they carried those at Hobby Lobby!
