New Fabric= Inspiration

A couple weeks ago I ordered some fabric on-line. At the time I wasn't totally sure what I was going to do with it, but I was in the mood to buy pretty fabric!
I thought I'd make a few Magnetic Inspiration Boards for my Shop. It's been awhile since I made this style{I've been making chalkboards & pin/cork boards lately}. Before I opened my Etsy Shop{back in 2007}I looked around to see if anyone was making anything similar: they weren't, it was just me{actually I wasn't sure if anyone would know what they were or if I'd even sell one}. Now, there are almost too many to count{which is a little discouraging}. But....
I do enjoy making them, and I don't want to put time and effort into something I don't enjoy doing. Here's the first one with my new fabric, I love this floral print!
....and I used to vintage jewelry I picked up last week at the flea market for the magnets. With the left over fabric I might make a couple pillows~ I think I'm in the mood to sew :)

I like the idea of the painted ones. You could paint something about the person the silhouette is of!
