Gift From Stephanie (Altered Clothes Pins)

Hello my friends. I'm so sorry for being MIA for so long. School started on August 6th and it's been so busy. I teach Computer Lab to 2nd through 5th grade and I love it so much. I'm just ready for things to slow down so I can get back into scrapbooking and creating.
This is an amazing gift I received from Stephanie (stephanoid69 on YouTube). I went to my mail box and saw this package from her. She told me to expect something but I never in a million years thought it would be this!! Just look at how beautiful these altered clothes pins are. My jaw dropped on the floor when I saw them. The detail is amazing and the pictures just don't do them justice.

Do you want to know the best part? When I opened the card, she wrote me the sweetest note and told me that she made one for me and my mom. :) My mom is my best friend and I share everything with her. I bought one of Stephanie's Grab Bag flower boxes she sells on her blog. I brought it over to my mom's house and she couldn't get over how talented and creative Stephanie is. I told this to Steph and she made one of these altered clothes pins for her. When I brought the gift to my mom, she literally cried. She couldn't believe someone would be so kind to think of her. Stephanie has blessed both of us and words cannot express my thanks. Much love to you Steph. :)
Just look at how beautiful they are. I love the colors she choose and the flowers. The images are simply gorgeous. I also love how she added old book paper to the inside of the pins. If you would like to get a closer look, just click on the picture. Thank you so much for visiting me. Hopefully, I will get some crafting done soon when things slow down at work. I hope you all have a very blessed day.
