one day late



i've been holding onto this project for quite awhile now. i showed a sneak peek of it here. one of my best friends was pregnant and i designed them for her as a gift. i didn't want to reveal them until after she had the baby and received the gift. the coast is clear now!

i wanted to post this yesterday for marzipan monday, but no matter where i looked, i couldn't find my prototype to photograph. i knew that i had taken them to the living room to show a friend, but now they were nowhere to be found! well, this morning the baby came running to me holding the magnets in his hand saying "ridg-rater, ridg-rater, ridg-rater". i couldn't figure out what he was saying so i asked him where he found them when he repeated "ridg-rater" again and led me to his play kitchen and pointed to the refrigerator portion. turns out i wasn't going crazy. somehow the little man had gotten hold of them and tucked them in his "ridg-rater" for safe-keeping.

so now that i have them back in my hands, i'm happy to finally share the new alphabet magnet sets i plan to sell in our fin+roe album! they can even be customized! if the baby's name is known, we alter the label to reflect that. for example it might read: "miles' alphabet magnets". even better, we also include an extra custom magnet with the baby's name!

set includes one of each letter in the alphabet in a rainbow of colors and patterns. they're all packaged in a vintage screw-top container. (the containers are limited edition, so they won't last forever!) magnets measure 2.25". they're not available on the website yet, but will be shortly!
