    since i can't sleep, i'm incredibly anxious after today's quake in my hometown area..my family and friends are safe and sound in the DC area but i'm just anxious..so i'm up DIYing..late..even though i have to be at work in the AM..how i'm going to manage that, i have no idea.

     

    anyway, since i'm up, i thought i'd share my magnets..all dressed up and ready to go...hope you enjoy them as much as i do.

          Love the magnets!  Great addition! I think we need to get a countdown on for the unveiling of the finished OOT pics!!!

            lol...a countdown...uhm, we're 6 weeks out..i'll likely post them about a week before departure...so, you've got about 5 weeks before the 'unveiling'...

             

            the magnets aren't going in the OOT bags, rather they will be used as part of the reception decor and guests can decide to take them home as 'favors' along with our CD favor.

             

            i'm sooooo loving the magnets though..they were SUPER easy to make!!  and fairly cost efficient too.

             

            until next time, happy planning!!

              A.) I LOVE the magnet idea. Great to throw in an OOT bag, as a favor, or for the place cards. Well done.

              B) We felt the earthquake too in B-more! How crazy was that? I'll never forget the feeling. :)

                PS-Is that glitter spray paint, or did you paint them purple and then roll them in glitter? Either way they look fantastic. :)

                  jwed...love, i didn't realize you were in baltimore..my honey is from baltimore so i was calling all over the DMV (DC, MD and VA) area yesterday...had the darndest time reaching folks...THANK GOD FOR TEXT MESSAGES!!!  woo...it was a little scary. i'm visiting there next week and i'll be stomping around the DMV dropping off our OOT bags..can't wait..

                   

                  uhm, ok..focus..the starfish were dyed purple...then i handpainted each with martha stewart glitter paint..sold at my favorite store, michaels.  its like $2.99/bottle..less than that with this week's  40% off coupon..the stuff is freakin' amazing..its included in one of the pics on here...that i took during the painting process.  the paint comes in all sorts of colors..i used a purple one and a silver..i'll upload pics of the silver starfish in a bit...i haven't made those into magnets but i might.  lol! 

                   

                  well, be safe, love!

                   

                  as always, happy planning!!

                      good day, ladies!

                       

                      after conferring with the hubby..i've decided to include the starfish magnets in our OOT/welcome/pre-boarding travel bags..here's a peak at how they look with our other OOT/welcome/pre-boarding travel items.

                      the full list and pics of the contents of our OOT/welcome/pre-boarding travel bags will be posted in my final planning thread. 

                       

                      until next time...happy planning!!
