Magnets


This morning we shall be off to the hospital to set up the retail unit ready for tomorrow.  This year we are trading on our own so fingers crossed it goes well. I have been busy making lots of extra stock to fill it and here are a few of the magnets I have made. Cats and dogs are always popular images so I bought some wooden ones from Ebay and added wooden hearts and lettering. The Home sentiment is from Inkylicious.  I buy the wooden coasters from MDF Craft Supplies and cover them with paper and add magnetic strips to the back.

We had some devastating news on Saturday morning. Our best friends' 40 year old daughter was rushed into hospital late Friday night, had a blood clot on the brain causing a heart attack and she died. You never know what is going to happen in life so make the most of it and enjoy yourself. She certainly did and packed more travel into her life than most people do in a lifetime. She had visited every American state, some more than once. Very sad that she is gone.
