Nutty Magnet Day

I'm very prone to doing things at the wrong time and also spending way too much time on those things that I'm doing at the wrong time. Like today. I had it in my head that I was going to make these little marble magnets that I saw on notmartha.org. Of course, like everyone else, I have tons of stuff to do before Christmas and making these little numbers today was not the greatest choice I could make, but OH WELL! My 13 yr old daughter, Molly and I made them and we had a BLAST! These really are addicting. I could not stop - I tried several times. So here it is after midnight, my house is a mess, my laundry is piled high, gifts aren't all wrapped, etc... but hey, my fridge has some rockin' magnets on it! It's the little things! We ended up with 60 or so of them. My daughter took 5 with her when she went to a friend's house as a little gift... isn't that cute?? See! 13 isn't so horrible! They sometimes do little dumb stuff, just like you want them too! My daughter wasn't looking forward to making the magnets with me, but she was really into it in no time and suggested we make enough to cover the entire fridge. Here are the little beauties:



These were so addicting, I might just make them on occasion and put them in my etsy shop.

It's way too late again and I am really getting tired of myself! I have no self control when it comes to going to bed! Tomorrow I will be an ole' grouch again in the morning til I pump my body with coffee. :P

Blessings!

Liz,
The magnets are just great! I can see where they would be quite addicting indeed! Thanks for including the notmartha website - in case I run out of things to do:)!
Wishing you all the best in 2008,
