This project is amazing on so many levels. First of all, mousetraps as clip holders! Brilliant! I'd much rather look at paper in the trap than a dead mouse! LOL! I said it once, and I'll say it again, you are the queen of fussy cutting!

You're so inventive, Wendy! These are really neat, and should be in a magazine. :)

Did you make out okay in the hurricane? We did not even lose power. I am amazed. Did you keep your power the whole time?
