I found a set of 100 (100!) business card magnets marked half off at Office Depot, and had to get them. I used the first one to turn this little piece into a magnetic pinkeep - it's on my fridge now.
If you'd like a free business card magnet - you peel off the paper to get to the sticky part - email me at cholmaneee at uia dot net and give me your snail mail address. First 10 will get a freebie magnet! You have to agree to make a magnet and post it for everyone to see!
She's the goalkeeper in black in the middle.
I used little brads leftover from my scrapbooking days on the corners, and two large eyelets for the hanger.
It's going to hang in my trailer to remind me of the beach and Martha's creativity.

For those who have digital cameras (bonus points if it’s inbuilt in your computer or webcam)
take a picture of yourself right now.
don’t change your clothes, don’t fix your hair…just take a picture.

It made me go figure out how to use the camera fixture on my computer!

Staci was my partner for the Seasonal Exchange - Autumn round in Fair and Square. I like the Erica Michaels designs from her "Stitchers' Surprise" series, so I stiched "Fall into Autumn" for Staci.

It's on the right in the photo below.
This other half becomes the base.
You'll be able to stand it up and see how it's going to look.
NOTE: The picture below is WRONG! I realized you'll have to flip the base over, too, so that the slant is not as severe. You'll see what I mean in the last pictures.
