There was a distinct lack of giant squid necklaces in my wardrobe, so I made one.

Have you tried this with real photos? I would like to use my friends christmas photo cards that they send to me and make them into magnets and send back to them! Just wondering what it might do to the photo. Also, need better quality glass marbles to do real photos, b/c too many bubbles or flaws mess up the pics too much. Have any suggestions on where to get flawless marble? — Asked by Anonymous

Hey, anon! 

I personally have not used real photographs, but I’m sure there’s a way to do it!  I would maybe look into treating the photos first with something like mod podge or another photo-safe product.  I don’t know of a particular brand or store that carries perfect glass, but I’ve found large flat glass bubbles at Michael’s stores.  I just pick out the best ones, and use the bubbly glass for other projects.  I hope that helps!  

Probably my favourite thrift store find since the pink telephone lamp.  A three album collection of the best swing music from 1940-41.

Envelope flap of “random collection #1” (a special feature in my journal)… vintage scratch-n-sniff stickers.  I have pickle, pancakes, cola, bubblegum, popcorn, ice cream, gingerbread house, and cinnamon. Yep.
