Magnet Set Give-Away





Leave a comment and you'll be entered to win this set of three glass bubble magnets with my original artwork! Be sure to leave a way to contact you if you don't have a blog. One week from today (Wednesday, June 17th) I'll put all of your names in a hat and pick a winner randomly.

This is the first test set of magnets that I made. I'm experimenting with various techniques and I'm looking forward to offering magnet sets soon in my shop at www.livefunky.etsy.com. Instead of using decorative papers, I'm using my own artwork underneath the glass. It's funny how this came about. Obviously this idea is far from new, I've seen lots of magnets and pendants on Etsy with art under glass. But it wasn't until one night, I was enjoying a glass of wine and put the glass on top of a piece of paper that I had doodled on. I admired how the drawing looked under the bottom of the wine glass and that's what got this ball rolling. I've ordered rectangular glass pieces and bails so I'll be playing with making pendants as well. Stay tuned as I reveal new products!

Hi Jessica,
I pop by your blog now and then. I can't believe no one has commented for a chance at these magnets. I like them, they remind me of 1950 barkcloth fabric. Please put me in the drawing.

These are very cool magnets! What a great idea for a give away! Like Chewy, I would love to be entered in your give away! Thank you!

Have a Wonderful Day!
