recycled book cover magnets and a THANK YOU!

First, a huge thank you to my wonderful, loyal customers, some who have put up with many weeks of confusion and some delay while my family moved. I have finally gotten back into the swing of things. Thanks for all of the well wishes and patience with custom orders.

I spent my first night in weeks crafting tonight! I found a goldmine of old books/book covers and cut tons of great images from old national geographic magazines. The ones pictured here are all from old Lord of the Rings/Tolkien books and some will be available in my shop soon. I will have lots of other new magnets listed this week as well! Sleazy seventies, fifties sci-fi, lots more.

I have had a insanely busy (but great!) week and I'm so glad to be home. I'm even happier that I forced myself to find time to make something new! I feel a creative kick coming on. Life is good.

Please Standby

Just checking in to say hello! I have been very detached from everything that doesn't involve packing, moving, painting, cleaning and calling various utilities and insurances, etcetera these days. We are moved in our new place and have a long way to go before we'll feel settled. But we love it! The kids adore having their own rooms, all of the neighbors seem fantastic so far and I don't even mind the smaller kitchen, especially since the trade off is much bigger bedrooms and a full basement. Yay!

I plan to re-open my etsy shop next week and hope to begin taking custom orders again early in June.

Hope all is well in your world!
