I've been busy making things for our church Advent fair on Saturday, which meant a hunt for crafts that look good but are quick to make. I'd already chosen this week's photo inspiration a while back, but when I came across the idea of decorating clothes pegs and putting a magnet on the back to turn them into magnetic clips for your fridge I just knew I had to do it for this week's play date cafe challenge!
I just love the shades of browny-grey that pegs go when they are weathered. This week we are sponsored by a UK company, Stamp Attack, who very kindly supplied the DT with their choice of stamps. I chose an Alice in Wonderland set.
I printed an early, handwritten copy of part of the Alice story from the internet, coloured it with coffee and glued it to the front of the peg. I love the contrast of the brown and the grey/black of the old style illustrations.
Sadly we are saying goodbye to two of our super talented design team members this week.
We'll truly miss them but wish them all the best in what they do next, but will obviously be staying in touch as they do such gorgeous work (and Lisa is our technical wonder who is always able to help us out in the land of computer wizardry :) ) The other guys have decided to stay on another long while, and Julie and I are busy oohing and ahhing over our DT entrants for the next team.
