embroidery hoop project + DIY tea tin magnets!

I'm stocking up for an upcoming craft show in Chicago.
Next month, I'll be a vendor at the DIY Trunk Show!
I did the show last year, and I loved it.
There were so many amazing vendors and tons of amazing people.
They've moved the location to a larger building...so there's bound to be even more greatness this year!

I just started designing & stitching up these embroidery hoop pieces:

I'm trying to make as many as possible before the show!
Afterwards, I'll post everything that doesn't sell in the shop ;)

Ohhh, and I've got such a fun DIY for you today!
I found this project on Pinterest. I thought it would be fun to share!

Vintage Tin Magnet DIY:

SUPPLIES: Vintage tea tins. Any size to your liking. I used little ones.
ProMag Adhesive Magnets - I got mine from Michael's. Any craft store should carry them.

STEP ONE: Peel back paper to reveal adhesive backing.

STEP TWO: Figure out placement of magnets. I only used two, but you may need more depending on the size of your tin!

STEP THREE: Stick magnets to tin. I used thick, strong magnets...just in case ;)

STEP FOUR: Stick to your fridge! Fill will pens, flowers..whatever your heart desires!

Send me some photos if you end up doing this project!
I'd love to see different versions ;)

Have a beautiful Sunday.
