More magnets - the solution to an increasing number of cute baby pictures on your fridge door.

I am convinced that you can never have enough magnets for your refrigerator door.  Especially if you belong to the demographic set of thirty-something year olds who are new parents of babies/toddlers that I do.  My friends send me the latest and cutest pics of their little ones, and I keep them up long after the original occasion is over.

Seeing these photos helps remind me that I am not the only one going through this rough and tumble phase of raising young kids, barely holding on to the edge of sanity.  And of course, the Poison Control phone number is a handy one to keep up there as well.

Hence,  my solution is to acquire more magnets - not just the office supplies store variety, mind you.  If you are going to have to look at it many times a day (think how many times you open and close your fridge door), it'd better be something worth looking at.  I'm tired of staring at that grimy bit of post-it note, stained with sauce, held up by a chipped plastic disc.

Here is my first attempt in making my own special magnets.  Looking at them makes me feel just a little bit happier throughout the day - especially since they spell out the reasons why I should still get myself out of bed in the morning and live each day the best I can.


  1. I came via Craft Gossip mainly because I was intrigued by your blog name (I have a little one named Elliott). I read your "about this blog" section and might I just give you a resounding "yes"! Well said. It's amazing the highs and lows that can occur in one short day as a mother... and the thought that we can "have it all" just slips away--but isn't motherhood "having it all"? I mean, the good, the bad, the ugly... It's a lot--but could there be a better devotion? Whoa, sorry for the ramble. I was just really touched by your words.

  2. Dear Tristin, you are so right about "having it all". Thank you for reminding me that there is nothing better I'd rather have.
