Little boy blue blanket - 177-179 of 365

Wow, I haven't posted in awhile.
I spent a week in Montreal for work. It was a nice change - walking around in 30°F weather and hearing almost nothing but French.
While I was there, I got majorly behind on my crafting, but I WAS able to get a little bit of crocheting done. Which helped me finished this afghan on time:

I've also been busy getting Christmas presents ready. Because I refuse to spend $1000/ticket to fly east to visit the fam over Christmas, we're celebrating a tad early this year.


A few months ago, I saw this post from ArtistsHelpingChildren.org and thought it would be a fun gift for the kids in the family. I also made a little drawstring bag to hold all the pieces.


The images were printed out on magnetic 'paper' and cut out. It was that simple.

  1. I tried to comment on this a little while ago, but am not as good at commenting as I thought, I suppose. I love the Angry Bird thing! I had no idea that there was magnetic paper that you could print on. That is absolutely amazing and I need it now.

  2. I didn't either until I saw that post. So you can print whatever you want on it - graphics, pictures, whatever - and you have an instant original magnet.
    This is what I used, I think I bought it on Amazon or something
