Name Magnets

Just a quick post today to show off a cool thing I did this weekend. As a neurotic neat-freak (and proud of it!) I'm always on the lookout for ways to simplify and organize my home. With our new fridge, magnets only stick to the side, leaving considerably less room than this family of 5 actually needs. So I bought some heavy-duty magnets at Target with a 1" round top. I then printed out our family member names on different colorcard stock, used a 1" punch to center and punch them out, glued them on the circle magnet, and covered it with a 1" page pebble to make it waterproof. Turned out pretty cool and it makes my fridge look neat and organized. Best yet, the magnets are really strong so we won't lose anything in the "no-man's-land" between the fridge and the counter...

I'll have to be sure to tell Jessica that she is on the side of your fridge and give her the link to your blog. She'll get a kick out of that!

Her wedding this weekend was lovely and fun by the way!
