Heirloom of Magnets

February 8th, 2011 by Susan Jecminek

 Heirloom of  Magnets, look for great new offerings this spring and summer.  Bits of Yore will be producing magnets with fond personal images on them.  I personally love to make magnets of beloved relatives, friends, pets, posters and old time labels.  Even though we have a stainless steel fridge, we still have a side panel that is magneitc friendly and some of the new whiteboards come with a magnetic coatings. 

Do you have too many pictures all over the house or have your photo albums been gathering dust in basement or attic?  Pull out your favorite pictures and contemplate having them made into magnets.  As long as they are scan-able a set can be made.  The magnets are as unique as every person in a family.
