    Such fun to see so many ways to use and decorate with clothes pins. I’ve used them for years to hang my laundry and I have different types of pins to hang different kinds of laundry. I know, who hangs their laundry anymore? – I do and save on our electric and gas bills besides how much nicer the sheets feel and smell. Our clothes are saved from the dryer stress and turn out so nice without wrinkles, no ironing. All week I keep smelling the sheets and pillowcases, so fresh, love it. Try it you might like it.
    So now to those great other ideas for clothespins.

    This is a great one, Kari—love these links! I love using clothespins for gift-giving and home decor! Here is a link to a home decor look that one of our designers created! And, if you type ‘clothespins’ into the search area on our blog, you’ll see more ideas on using pre-designed clothespins (sticker designs already in place when you purchase them)! http://missfancypants.typepad.com/little_miss_fancy_pants/2013/10/focus-on-clothespins-with-yuki.html

    I use clothespins to close my chip bags, cereal bags, cracker bags, etc. They keep things closed tight and fresh until I want to use the item again. I love clothespins! They remind me of my mother who always had a beautiful wash hung out on the line. Carla
