Magnetism

Oh my, the vacation is half over with already. At least I've gotten some stuff done. I actually cleaned the craft room. I was getting really annoyed with searching for things that I knew I had but couldn't find because everything was so unorganized. I discovered I had 3 packages of magnets. Apparently I kept thinking I was out of them and bought more. 

Well since there's magnets I may as well do something with them. I've been making the marble magnets for several shows now and they usually go very well. Then again they're only a quarter so why not. 
I decided that the price is going up on them for the next craft show. I've packaged them this time in packs of 6 for $2.00. I may still offer them as singles but for 50 cents each.

What do you think of the images I used on them?  I did something very rare. I BOUGHT the images. I came across an etsy shop called Lisa's Altered art and I couldn't resist. Her images all come as a digital download. The quality is great and the prices can't be beat. This was way easier than finding pictures and fitting them in to 1" circles. She's done all the work in her bottle cap sheets.

I also made a few more mouse trap magnets. These have also sold pretty well in the past. These are kind of on the plain side but I thought they looked nice with the papers I used

Tomorrow I'll show some other things I did.

I cant resist magnets and have a big box of plain ones I have been meaning to craft with but keep resisting as I dont want to use them up...we crafters have funny minds sometimes isnt it. I love all the glass ones...so pretty and your mouse trap one has an elegance of its own!
Cheers

The magnets look wonderful! The images are perfect for fall and halloween. Great idea to package them by six pcs!

Magnets made easy. The digital idea is unique.

I think it is borderline animal cruelty to feed mice iron pellets in order to catch them with magnetic mouse traps. Arlynda would say good for you, though.
