I bought a narrow stick (about the size of a yard stick) at the craft store, an adhesive magnetic sheet, and some rub-on letters. I brought home the stick, painted it, and then rubbed on the letters. My husband cut the stick with his saw, because for some reason, he doesn't trust me with a saw. (He needn't worry, you can't hug a saw or anything... though I nearly could have, after I saw how adorable these turned out!!) After the ends are cut, you want to dab some matching paint on the ends... then simply adhere a magnet cut-to-size, on the back, and voila, you are done.
You could literally make magnets that say anything! You could go crazy with this people. Organizationally crazy. So now... go- and...
Organize your life.
(Oh how I love those three little words...)
