  • tiny pendant series (I don't even know what this is going to be. I just got some pretty little bails and I need something to attach them to!!)
  • relaxing in the sun (okay....I know this isn't shop related, but I'm going to do it anway)

We were featured on a blog today. On the Dot Creations. She features dotty inspirations and our Retro Polka Dot push pins made the cut! Go check it out!

This morning we posted some pretty cool push pins on our website. These push pins are from the "Dala" series. This is a brand new series that we like very much. The Dala horse is a traditional wooden statuette of a horse originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna. The Dala horse is used as a symbol for Dalarna or sometimes the whole of Sweden. The Dala horse is also recognized as an unofficial symbol of Sweden throughout Swedish-America. It stays very close to our hearts. We think the push pins look pretty cool. These little horses would look pretty cool anywhere in your house!

The friendship of women pendant

Here is the third pendant in our "words and thoughts" series. "I believe that these circles of women around us weave invisible nets of love that carry us when we're weak and sing with us when we're strong..." a quote by SARK is handwritten against a light bright green background.

We have gotten a really good response to our new series. We hope that you love this one too! You can find it here:

Glass Marbles

When it comes to our glass marbles please keep this in mind: If you like a specific design (paper) we can use that design to make both magnets AND push pins. Just send us a little note and we can make it happen. At the moment some of the paper is only being used for magnets OR push pins. We are working on this! We are also working on our very own designs and we are very excited about these! MM Originals!

Personalized notecards

We are personalizing some notecards now. Each set comes with 4 folded cards and bright white envelopes. So far, we have just a few up on etsy, but I am sure there will be more soon. Here are some samples (the sports one says Mrs. Sizemore; she is a gym teacher that will be receiving a set of cards at the end of the school year). Just wanted to clarify... most people would probably give a set of notecards like this to a little boy. :) Then we made another one with an eagle on it for someone working for a school that has an eagle as a mascot. Makes for pretty nice gifts.

Wooden brooches

I finally bought a wood burning tool. I used one in woodshop many years ago, and remember it being a lot of fun!I got little round wooden pieces from the hobby store and went nuts in a matter of minutes. :) I got so excited about them and decided to turn them into pins. Pretty cool clothing accessory if you ask me! Here are some examples of what I have made so far (three of them just sold, but I will be making more soon).
