One powerful hour :food and/or beverages



This is the first time I have taken part in the one powerful hour challenge.
Not only did I finish this within the hour, yes I did manage to do the tidying up and the photography.
I was given two of these giant pegs (clothespins) by Jo, for my birthday back in march, and I thought "oooo they are cool, but what the heck do I do with them?" it was only when Jo used them in an article in the current issue of Craft Stamper magazine, that I started to get some ideas.

I decided to use this collage image from Inka. it's from the "oh yum" sheet and has to be one of my favourite images ever, and I thought it was perfect for the theme. I thought I would make my peg into a practical item and decided to make it somewhere to put all those recipes I pull out of magazines (with the intention of trying out)- surely I'm not the only person who does this??

I have also used Stamps from Inka's new range. I have used the tea room sign in the background (I have also used freshly baked but I think I have mostly covered this up.
The "jolly good" words are also from Inka's new range.

  6. Oh wow! What a wonderful and creative idea! I saw some HUGE clothespins like that in the store and I had no clue what I would do with them so I didn't buy them.

  7. Joanne, What a marvelous use of this large clothespin! My recipes are always scattered hither and yon and therefore I can never find the one I'm looking for. With this wonderful piece of artwork, I'd be all set! Sometimes it just takes a while for a brilliant idea to strike!
