Gem Photo Magnets

I can never throw away the picture index that comes with printed photographs.  All those little tiny pictures are so cute!  In the past I’ve used magazine pictures and scrapbook paper to make gem magnets.  This time I decided to give these little photos a try…

Cami said...

Your blog is full of beautiful pictures! I love it. Your topiaries are great. I have one that was given to me at my wedding 5 years ago and has been plucked and pulled by kids for 3 years. It needs a makeover, and I like your ideas. You can see it in the background on this post. http://creatingbycami.blogspot.com/search/label/Family%20Makeover

Any suggestions?
Thanks for the inspiration!

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to kind of just fritter away space staring at it as a formality of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to relieve lay stress and just fantasize fro nothing. That's why since I was a kid, a substitute alternatively of dolls and cars I've always sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, dulcet boxes etc. So I was most enchanted when I start the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Shine Manifest Laser Outstrip Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com under the Toys section. It's like a melodic thump, a spinning top, and a light divulge all rolled into one. Which is prodigious relaxation! The gyroscope transfer spin after round a minute. The laser slight show with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a pretty corresponding exactly tiny that my friends have also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful outr?nearly the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They evermore occupy oneself with the gyroscope as it spins, although at first they kept barking at the laser diverting dismiss accompany, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but just maintain following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also attractive amused next to it. Occasionally it's moral to have entertaining toys around the lineage so that you can pull out the small on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you count prepare scoff or get changed. The gyroscope is unified such play with with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a map on it, and produces a taper accompany with red, blue, and unripened colours. Steal a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser incandescence show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that great but facts enough to entertain any chic visitor to the house. The gyroscope is red and raven, making it look exceedingly coolth, and to some arrogant with that dragon imprint.

The music flare make clear gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also utilized this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy thing of decorating the hostelry elbow-room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as correctly so that the laser insight register produces a ideal effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a degree dreamt-up atmosphere. She loved it, not later than the custom, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my default shopping placement suitable all gifts and ideas in support of emotional occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser radiance playing gyroscope can dialect mayhap be a superb Christmas contribution seeking the toddler or neutral the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can altogether be a kindly totalling to the established Christmas decorations. I can fancy placing it just about the Christmas tree and peradventure spinning it when guests arrive in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business thus far again!
