Spring Time Pegs 01.03.2012

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Spring Time Pegs

I've got a spare thirty minutes before I need to be off to rehearsals, so I thought I would write a quick little post to all of you lovely readers.
I've once again needed a side line project to focus on. An in-between project to take my mind off sewing in the ends to my granny square blanket. I wasn't so sure what I wanted to do, although I knew I didn't want to crochet anything new just yet.
Instead I've settled on a very simple and inexpensive project. Decorating clothes pegs!!
I've got my supplies at the ready:

I have a selection of traditional pegs along with some mini clothing pegs I picked up at the craft store.

I've picked out some of my favorite colours of acrylic paint. A glorious combinations of blues, pinks and purples!

Do you want to see what's in the tiny wooden boxes?
Some cute little daisies! I think I'm going to glue these onto the pegs to add a touch of Spring!

I've also got these cute little ladybirds. I think they will fit perfectly at home climbing up the wooden pegs!

Now, maybe some of you are wandering what the book from the first picture has to do with this little project?
Its actually a lovely little box I bought from a local shop. I'm in love its vintage appearance and the idea that it looks like a book but I can hide little things in it......how very sneaky!!!
I'm not too sure what I'm going to hide in my special book yet. For the time being its holding my pretty pegs and supplies.

I did warn you that this was a quick post :-) I haven't even got a finished project to share. I will show you what I've done so far though:

A little jar of bright and stripey pegs! I'm pretty pleased with how they are turning out and promise to keep you updated with my progress.
Until then I do hope you are all having a TRULY SPLENDID week!!!
