I think I shot myself in the foot...

Hi folks...I think I may have gone and shot myself in the foot...trying to be smart doesn't always work out. When I ordered the Misti...there was the option to add one magnet to my order at $2.00...that wasn't the problem but that tiny addition added rather bizarrely another $2 to the already quite high postage charge so me being me I decided to have a nosey around on Amazon and bingo found 10 magnets for £2.69...BARGAIN or maybe NOT...
miniscule or what but they are super super strong...you won't believe the problems I had detaching them from this 2 pence coin and I gave up trying to separate them from each other...it may be back to the drawing board on the canny Scotswoman saving pennies shopping spree but hey life's too short to worry about small things magnetic or otherwise.
And a cheer me up slightly larger package arrived just minutes later...a bumper box of goodies from the lovely folks at Decoart...I'm itching to get stuck in and have some mixed media fun...
but it won't be happening today...it's Saturday and I'm off to The Papeterie for a day of fun with the lovely folks at Kath's Klub and Monday's already spoken for with my fixation with all things Flower Garden...I'm planning a canvas to hang in my family room...
but first I need to find a very very safe place for the little magnetic devils...have a great weekend whatever you have planned.
Hugs Kath xxx

i did the same thing, Kath - slide the little devils apart sideways works pretty good for getting them apart and then just keep them away from each other :-)

Keep them away from your credit cards and computer!

Twist and slide them apart, they cannot pull apart.

That really made me smile, I bought some of those magnets too, for a project just before Christmas and now they just sit in a stack because I cannot separate them either! Love your bumper DecoArt pack, you will have lots of fun, they are fabulous to work with..... Hugs, Anne xx

I knownwhat you mean about those shipping costs. Being on a Greek island means I need international shipping for all of my crafting supplies. Looks like you will be having some fun this weekend.

Yep I'm chuckling to over the magnet grab. And I'm purple with envy over the DecoArt that everyone but me seems to be getting. Love love....have fun with it all. Hugs

Oh Kath, I'm mega jealous as I'm lusting over the MISTI but being on sickness benefit I just can't afford one. I'm hoping that they will soon become a more reasonable price, or available in the UK to cut down the horrendous international shipping. Those magnets sound a bit lethal lol. x
