Magnetic Shopping Notebooks

Morning friends

Life is pretty hectic at the moment, but I managed to find some time on Saturday evening to catch up on some very long-awaited orders for these little Magnetic Shopping Notebooks.  I hope the recipients will like them and I hope you do too....



And now for a few close-ups...

1. Pink

2. Yellow and Blue

3. Purple


It is a short week for us in SA this week.  Friday is a Public Holiday and with Tuesday being one as well, our office is closed on Monday... woohooo... so a most welcome long weekend awaits us !

It is also the big move for my Mom this weekend.  She will be moving into a retirement home 5 minutes away from me on 1 May.  I'll let you know how it went after the weekend.   Please keep her in your prayers, as she'll be leaving her home of over 37 years behind her.  It is currently on the market for Sale. Since my dear Dad passed away on 17 May last year, it just hasn't felt the same without him, so I think she's OK to "let go" and enter this new chapter in her life.  

Thanks so much for visiting me today.  I hope you have a fabulous week.  [Edit:  The girls loved their magnetic fridge notebooks... I am so pleased.  I now have an order to make more ;) ]

hugs Sharon x

These are soooo cute :) I knew your customers would love them. I know what you (and your mom) will be going through - my MIL moved into a Retirement Home last year and it was a big change but she is VERY happy. Her schedule is busier than mine!

Wow Sharon, These magnet notepads are adorable. Beautifully made. I love how you do your ribbons too.

I'm sure this will be very hard for your Mother after being in her home for the last 37 years. so many memories. As long as she has familiar treasures around her I think it will make it easier for her. It is so lovely to have her close by.
Hugs Maz
