Paint Chips Galore and More

So you know how I help at my friend's work once a month for a class? (Well if you didn't, you do now lol.) Anyway, we made water squirt tubes out of pvc pipe and it was a ton of fun. On the way out, I was glancing at the paint chip samples and even though I knew the answer would be yes, I asked if I could grab a handful, thinking that maybe next week (or two) I can get started on a project.

Well, yep, my answer was yes. Then my jaw dropped as my friend continued talking. She told me not only could I have a handful. I could have the WHOLE display of paint chip samples because they are going to be selling a new brand of paint at her store and not that brand anymore. In fact, she said they'd box them all for me and write my name on it. SCORE!!!!!!!!

Now that I'm going to have a gazillion paint samples, I'm going to have to figure out what to do with all them. So I hopped on my Pinterest and went straight to my Paint Chip DIY board I created to get some ideas.

Those are super cute, but I don't know if I have a flower punch. Ok on to the next idea.

Now that I am going to make! I like how the colors are layered too, more abstract looking.

I think when I get the load of paint chips, then I'll do something like this. I love how it looks!

Love this! Same concept as above, but with monogram. Again, I'll wait for my big supply :)

A paint chip calendar...I love it!

Now I've got other pins, but they're holiday related and some are card ideas, so I won't work on those yet. I also have seen some paint chip garlands that look cute.

Do you have any paint chip projects you've pinned? I'd love more ideas! 

Oh before I forget, have you signed up for the "To Be Continued" Linky Party over at Michele's blog, The 3 AM Teacher? It's going to be a continuous story!
