Christy is most patient & considerate. She accommodated all my quirky requests and would send not one but 4 options for me to choose from. This proved to me her artistry & creativity. We love the end result. Thank you, Christy!

Save the Dates your guests will be sure to treasure!!

The Beginning...
The first set of photo magnets I created were much smaller than what I sell on my site. I actually gave them as a gift to my husband for Father's day. He absolutely loved them and displayed them at work. He received many compliments and interest. After some thought and consideration, I did my research and tweaked the design to perfection. Soon after, I began giving my sweet handmade photos as gifts to friends and family, they were a hit!

The Next Step...
Experiment. Experiment. Experiment.
Hard work and passion combined, allowed me to create a product that I'm absolutely 100% proud of. I researched and tested many different magnets, all shapes and sizes, just to be sure you are getting only the best. Ultimately I chose a heavy-duty 60 mil magnet that's custom cut specifically for my photo magnets. Quality is key!!! After experimenting with numerous creative ideas and various materials, my (original) Mini P's were conceptualized. Otherwise known as FUNctional Minis.

Making it happen!
In late September 2012, I opened up shop on Etsy. I absolutely love Etsy and was so excited to share my handcrafted photo magnets to the public, oh what an adventure it has been... Listening to what my customers want is a top priority, you now have the option to order original "thicker" or new "thinner" magnets that are just as awesome and easy to mail. You can buy your own FUNctional Minis here on Etsy or go to

Your handcrafted photo magnets will be shipped to you according the size of your order. I work diligently to get orders out ahead of schedule. Naturally, larger quantity custom orders are subject to a longer turnaround time, however, I do my best to exceed your expectations.

Additional policies and FAQs

Created with only the best materials, your photo magnets will be sure to last! I've researched and tested many different magnets, all shapes and sizes, just to be sure you are getting only the best. I believe quality is key and I stand behind my creations 100%.

--> How to send me your images/captions:

2. I will send you a proof and a make sure you are 100% satisfied.
3. Once approved, I will begin the process of creating your photo magnets.

--> Helpful info for shipping your photo magnets individually:
This information was provided directly by the Post office:
- 3 1/2" x 5" (inches) is the smallest legal mailing size for an envelope in the US.
- You can get a variety of envelopes, all colors & sizes, online or at Michael's, Hobby Lobby or any local craft store.

» For the smaller photo magnets, you only need one stamp to mail your sweet Mini's.
» For any larger size, it costs a total of .71 cents to ship, placed inside a larger envelope.
» You can buy (two-ounce) .71 stamps at any Post Office.

(All are costs are estimated with your photo magnet placed inside a larger mailable envelope)

NOTE: If you are planning on mailing the keepsake favors, the cost is higher and varies because of the thickness. If you want to mail your FUNctional Minis, order the (Thin Minis) / Mailable Minis.

Your photo magnets will be mailed first class with a package ID #, not a tracking #. (If over 4lbs - They will have to be mailed PRIORITY - PO Regulations)
Shipping may take a week or two or sometimes longer, depends on where you live. I wish I could hand deliver all of my packages.
Note - I generally mark 'gift' on paperwork and generally mark a lower value.

PLEASE be aware of your country's taxes, duties and any surcharges you will be responsible for when receiving merchandise shipped from the United States. Please contact your Post Office for further information on receiving international parcels.

--> Please Read: I will occasionally use images of orders on my own Social Media networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Etsy and Pinterest. Not for resale but simply to show others different variations of photo magnets and how sweet they are :) Please let me know if you would like to keep your order private. I will never disclose your personal information, never! Simply contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
