Uses for Binder Clips - Holding Up Sleeves

The first thing I do when I put on a long-sleeved shirt is roll up the sleeves. This habit is so engrained that whenever I am wearing a suit I have to unroll my shirt sleeves before I put on the jacket.

I am good at rolling sleeves so they stay put. But some sleeves will fall down no matter what you do. Especially if you are doing something like washing dishes where you really don't want them to fall down.

Can you believe it was not until this weekend at the Bloggers' Brunch that I realized I could clip my sleeves in place?

I owe this discovery to XUP because she brought a selection of beautiful binder clips to the brunch and I wanted to wear mine.

Hard as it may be to believe, some of the bloggers there were not familiar with the "Uses for Binder Clips" series. Jo Stockton and I tried to explain about it but I got side-tracked when the phrase "king of the binder clip" was spoken. Side-tracked because a king must have a crown. I was anxious to get home and make one. But I stayed to the end because I was having fun.

Can I have a crown too?

I used to think you looked like a judge, but now I see the error of my ways. You look like a king. Of course, your name is also kingly, you must have been named after the great King David.

Nat, exactly.

Binder Queen, do you have any binder clips?

Red Vera, I've wondered about that. It didn't seem likely that I was named after a movie star although I've always been fond of David Niven.
