22 Before 23

Today is my half birthday... (Exactly 6 months till my next birthday. Obviously)

So with this in mind, I have been inspired by this post over at A Beautiful Mess ( this is a very lovely blog by the way, so have a little nosy around over there!)  to set myself 22 goals to achieve by the time I turn 23.

And here they are... 

The first 2 are private goals, but if I achieve them i'll be sure to let you know!! Suddenly it all seems very daunting and difficult... but 6 months can be a long time and some of these things will be a fun kind of challenge! Like having a 100% Handmade Christmas. This has come from my love of making personal presents as well as frugal times hitting hard! The man, the brother and the mother are easy enough but what to make for the father?! He may well be my downfall... 

Number 14 should be easy enough... Today I am grateful for the inspiring and beautiful blogs I read everyday!

Trip to Europe is probably dependent on paying off the overdraft though... and soon!

It's magnetic!

It's been a while since my last blog (naughty blogger...) so I thought I would do a bit of a bumper blog on whats been going on and whats coming up!


I have been dabbling in printing my photographs and artwork onto magnets for a little while now and I thought I would give you a sneaky peak...

These vintage Polaroid style magnets are designed by me and feature my own photography. They can be personalized with your own message and photo!

These smaller magnets are designed by myself... (I do adore PhotoShop!) They are 5cm x5cm in fully customisable lovely colours!

 And for that special day....

Test magnets printed... and they work! Hazzar!

I've been playing around with using them on greeting cards using photo corners so you can remove the magnet, these could work best with the save the date magnets? 

I was also thinking about using vintage adverts? who's up for some rationing tips?

If you're like me and absolutely love vintage adverts, I am slowly working my way through old magazines and newspapers to bring you digital collections of genuine vintage ads for a bargain price!

This collection contains 80 individual adverts all from the 1940's!
For sale on Etsy or Facebook!

Magnets coming soon (I hope!)
