Hello, our names are Karen and Susan. Over the years we have each created many different things. We have always known that we wanted to create something together, but we weren't sure what. We love fabric and we both love to decorate our homes. We feel a desire to make beautiful things and surround ourselves with things we have created. The decision to create magnet boards just evolved. We wanted magnet boards for our little girls rooms so we played around with the idea of covering the metal with fabric, and we came up with this.

We have been excited to try out all the different shapes we have thought of.

We had fun creating our etsy site and had help from Karen's husband Tony in creating our logo and our graphics (ok he designed them for us, we didn't really help at all except to pick from the many beautiful options he created!)

When we are not creating beautiful magnet boards, we are spending time with our families. Between the two of us we have 9 children, 2 dogs, a cat, a gecko, and 2 husbands. We first met in 2004 when Susan moved into the neighborhood. Karen decided Susan could be her friend when she offered her candy from her purse in church. It is a truth universally acknowledged that anyone who has candy in their purse at church (and is willing to share) can be our friend.
