Makin some magnets!

This Saturday is a Home and Garden and craft show that I'm doing. So I've been busy getting things ready for that. I've been making some magnets to sell. I always sell a ton of these things and every year there is always something that someone asks for that I didn't have.
Last year it was Elvis, so I made some with him. Plus some Elizabeth Taylor ones as well.
I think I'll make some Shirley Temple ones next. Plus some odds and ends of some funky stuff. Baby strollers and what not.
These are the glass marbles I use. I buy them at the Dollar Tree because I like them better. They are flatter and rounder and clearer, and they are only a dollar!!
I buy the magnet buttons at good ol Wally-world. Why I call it that I don't know, maybe cause my mom did! Oh and a 1 inch circle paper punch and glue.
Last but not least is a pic I just wanted to share of our Boxer Ray. He always looks out this door and I am FOREVER cleaning the snot off of it!! Only when the mail-man comes does it get shut! He doesn't like him at all! Well I hope everyone has a great day, or evening because it's now 6:00 in the evening here! See ya!!

I'm lovin' the new look to your blog! Great magnets, ALL of them - how many have you made to sell?

Ray's so cute looking out that door. Dog snot, wonderful. Drives you mad when it's always there needing to be cleaned off, miss it like hell when the glass is always clean......:0(
