Magnetic Monograms

Howdy.  I am trying to make a conscious effort in photographing what I create, to sell at the Holiday Craft Fairs I am participating in this holiday season.  And, so, I have a few photos.  I hand-craft magnetic monograms, and price to sell.  I take chipboard, and cover it in beautiful paper, paint it, and then decorate it.  The final touch is adhering two very strong magnets to the back.  That way, you can add your initial to any metal surface: locker, refrigerator, metal door, metal message board, and similar items.

Fancy cotton trims, sweet wrinkled seam binding, pretty vintage buttons, and interesting stick pins adorn these 4" letters.  Two strong magnets are adhered to the back of each letter.

This is all that I crafted today.  I could have finished a few more.  But, I have a habit of crafting the 'same'.  So, I figure I would take a break, and then come back to finish several more.  And maybe {fingers crossed} they all don't look alike.  {smile}
Now, I'm off to finish a few more gift bags.  I'm using Tidings pattern paper by Authentique for several of the gift bags (7-8).  Just incase a buyer would like a set of three or four.  {smile}  But, as you know, arrive early to my booth, at the craft fair, for the best selection.    If you would like a post card that has my craft fair schedule, please email me your address, and I'll drop one off in the mail {smile}.
