    I found this wood that was just going to be in a burn pile. They said I could have what I wanted...so I took a carload of wood home. Most of it has to sit and dry some more, but I did manage to get a few of these done. Hope you like them.

    I like your way of thinking, never let anything go to waste that can be used as something else. Your magnets are cute and useful.

    Really quite nice, Heather! Very evocative of the woods and cabins.

    Great idea...they would also look great surrounding a mirror or photo frame...very organic.

    Love the variations in the wood. Question? How do you add the magnets?

    Beautiful looking wood- if you can drill some holes, you can also have buttons (I just had a thought, can't tell how big these are).

    Now that's my kind of crafting. Beauty of the wood is a fondness of mine.
