"My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown, but it's silver when it's wet,
And all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet."
-Shel Silverstein

Magnetic Board

I wanted to make my aunt some cute magnets for work, but I didn't think she'd have anywhere to stick them, so I made her a little magnetic board for her desk! The best part is that it was from stuff I had laying around! I had this old frame that was missing the glass. It had the back, but I didn't have it in for the picture.
I have lots of 5x7 galvanized steel step flashing left over from Christmas presents I made, so I used one as a template to cut a piece of scrapbook paper that I liked.

I thought that I'd just put the paper in front of the steel so that I could easily change it for seasons or holidays, but the frame was kind of cheap and didn't really hold it tightly, so I put 3 pieces of double sided tape and attached the paper to the steel.

Here it is with just the plain magnets (before I got the cute ones made)

And again, the finished product! Easy and cute!
