Karen Olks' Profile

About

My name is Karen and my company is called Magna Memos. I live in a suburb of Seattle, WA called Kirkland with my wonderful and supportive husband Bill. I was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, and although I miss my hometown from time to time, I love living here in Seattle and have made a successful transition to being a "northwesterner".

I create beautiful magnetic and dry erase memo boards in designer styles and eye catching themes. I have been creating, working and perfecting my craft for about 5 years now, but only started selling at local art and craft shows about 3 years ago, and have been selling on ETSY for almost 3 years.

Each memo board is set in a hand chosen frame and comes either simply fashioned or embellished to match the background. An acrylic overlay works as a dry erase surface so you can write on the board as well. Hand…

About

My name is Karen and my company is called Magna Memos. I live in a suburb of Seattle, WA called Kirkland with my wonderful and supportive husband Bill. I was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, and although I miss my hometown from time to time, I love living here in Seattle and have made a successful transition to being a "northwesterner".

I create beautiful magnetic and dry erase memo boards in designer styles and eye catching themes. I have been creating, working and perfecting my craft for about 5 years now, but only started selling at local art and craft shows about 3 years ago, and have been selling on ETSY for almost 3 years.

Each memo board is set in a hand chosen frame and comes either simply fashioned or embellished to match the background. An acrylic overlay works as a dry erase surface so you can write on the board as well. Hand crafted coordinating gem magnets and a well designed magnetic key hook are also included. I hand make every board so the styles are chosen by me as well as the design of the matching magnets. Styles are available to match your home's decor or a theme that speaks to your favorite places, interests or hobbies, and custom orders are welcomed. I can find just about any theme or design. There really is a board for everyone!

This is a very creative way to hang notes, reminders, and kid's art, or write lists and "to-do's" that is much more appealing than a dull white board. In addition, when the board has nothing hanging or written on it, it looks beautiful! Makes a great personalized gift as well.

***Hanging hardware comes already attached to the back and is two sturdy sawtooth hangers.

***Highest quality magnets are used for the gem magnets. No wimpy magnets here!

***High guage acrylic is used for durability and resistance to clouding. Any dry erase marker works on the dry erase surface and wipes clean with a soft cloth or tissue.

***I only work with wood frames that are cut, assembled, and painted or stained per my order.

***I can usually ship boards within one week, and ship all over the world.
