29 minutes and counting as I type this. I am so ready for the weekend. Tonight I am going to play BINGO. It has a been a while and my Bingo buddy called last night and said the game is on. :) Tonight will be Longaberger basket Bingo. I hope I win cause I surely don't buy them. Too expensive for me.
It is suppose to be warm and sunny this weekend. I plan on spending some time outside. I want to take Payton to the park tomorrow and to get some ice cream.
Have a great weekend and I will see you on Monday!!

Multi Use Items - Paper Clips

I can remember when the only kind of paper clip you could purchase was the silver ones. Now you can get them in all colors including gold and some are stripped. You can now find spiral and heartshaped paper clips HERE. Some scrapbookers even decorate paper clips with stickers and tags. HERE are some ideas.

I use paper clips often with my coupons and with work. Of course, they help keep things organized. I have also seen paper clips used for other things too. Here is a decorated Lampshade with Paperclips HERE and some people have used paper clips to create sculptures HERE.

Other uses for paperclips:
- ornament hangers
- bag clips
- my FIL used one as an antenna on an old radio

Do you have any other uses for paper clips?
