Ok... heres a challenge... how about a hockey team... the Pittsburgh Penguins to be exact?!?!?

I mean... a Marc-Andre Fleury goalie clothespin ornament! That would be something to see!

You sell these on ebay? How much do you get for each? They really are a work of art!!! So creative!!

I don't know... I'm breathlessly waiting to see what you come up with!! :D There could be a niche market for these next year before Christmas... you know these Penguin's fans will buy ANYTHING that has the Penguins logo on it!! (Yea... I know... I'm one of the idiots that does it!)

Our autistic 17 year old's bedroom is actually designed to look like a hockey rink... with white linoleum for 'ice' on the floor, and the boards on the walls... and all his hockey collectibles (signed NHL sticks and the like)! This sounds like a good addition to his room!

Now remember... for this challenge... the goalie is essential... and his mask and stick are the key!!! Oh... and a Sydney Crosby #87 would be TOO SWEET!!!!!!! hahahahahahahahahah Can't Wait!!!!

Very creative Shawn! This weekend we were in the Dells and there is a big craft place that I always stop in. There was a bunch of ladies from the red hat society there. On their hats were beads, feathers, or lace and some with sequence. I asked one of them where they find they're hat's and she said any where and that was they're mission for the weekend, to find new hats they could dress up. One of them was holding a doll with a red hat on and another a little clay cat with a red hat on. I'm thinking if you made some lady clothes pins with red hats, those would be a great seller on ebay. I have a feeling that they would buy just about anything with a red hat! I could see these women using them for Christmas ornaments or to hang on their rear view mirrors.

We have a couple of reindeer made out of those old clothespins. They are packed away with the Christmas stuff, but if I recall correctly, they use a popsicle stick for the body between the two clothespins. Don't remember exactly how the heads and antlers were constructed, but with your ingenuity I have no doubt that you could come up with something.

I agree! You are very creative with just clothespins and felt! I love your theme sets! You've really got something there! I think you ought to copyright them somehow!

Wow, you have some really nice ornaments! I have seen people make santas and reindeer out of clothespins but you have really outdone yourself there! Great job! I will have to buy some off you and tell my friends.

Hi, Shawn, Wow! Your ornaments are the bomb! I thought you might like to try something I do. You definitely have the manual dexterity. Just don't know if you drink Champagne or sparkling wine. This link goes to a how-to article I wrote.

@how...

Is this article part of the eHow Writer Compensation Program? If so, you really need to tell people that since we don't take kindly to spammers around here.
