magnet mania

Last week I received a super-nice email from Kate Grenier, a fellow Portland artist. Of course, I zoomed right over to her website and discovered her awesome series of hand-crafted magnets.

Today, I came home to find a lovely package waiting for me: Kate sent me a little sampling of her magnets! (thank you, Kate :)

Aren't these awesome? I love the way they're packaged in a little tin (I'm such a sucker for good packaging!), and the office theme was quite appropriate as well, considering the number of hours I've been putting in the last few weeks!

And she's got many other themes as well – I especially love the "chocolate" and "beer" ones. Kate can even do custom ones – how cute to announce your baby's birth to the world with a custom baby announcement set of magnets!

All her creations have a strong graphic thread throughout the imagery, typography and color. Locally you can find Kate's magnets at Oblations in the Pearl or check her site for a store near you (she's in over 200 stores world-wide so there's bound to be one near you!)
