Announcement   *****WE'VE MOVED TO COSTA RICA*****
My wife and I have sold everything we own and moved to Costa Rica. We are excited about the new possibilities that await us here in this beautiful country. I hear "Pura Vida" a lot here. It's an expression used by Ticos (Costa Ricans) that means "Pure Life". I recommend that each and every one of you live life with Pura Vida and invite you to follow our adventures in paradise.

PARTNERSHIP POSSIBILITIES: If you live in the US and would like to partner with the Out of My Mind Art Shop, please send me a convo. I would like to continue to ship from the US, but I need someone there to do that for me. Plus if they know anything about marketing we can get Magic Wands into the hands of thousands of people.

Thank you so much for your loyalty and your support over these past two years. Now that I am living in Costa Rica, I am focusing on creating really cool new stuff for you. Who knows what I will come up with?

Sincerely,

Ray

The Out of My Mind Art Shop is THE shop for Magic Wands, Wine Charms, Wire Mobiles and Abstract Art. There are many gift items that will appeal to every family member. How about a Magic Wand for your daughter or a Flinger for your son? Magical Mobiles are a perfect bedroom decoration for your granddaughter or grandson. Your mother or father might appreciate a set of Magical Wine Charms to use for those small, intimate dinner parties. Don't forget about your co-workers. Everyone will want to be 'wanded' and you are just the person to do that.

Below is a link that takes you to a video where I demonstrate how I make a Star Magic Wand. Take a few minutes and check it out.

I am also working on some really cool wire puzzles that will boggle your mind and expand your brain functioning. That's what I call a win-win! Look for them soon. In addition I will soon be introducing my new line of book markers. They are crazy cool.

Check out the new LOW price on my Magical Mobiles (Only $50). Each mobile is about 28" (72 cm) and 7" (18 cm) wide. They have 7 delightful handmade charms that glisten in the light of a sunny corner in your living room, your family room, your child's bedroom or patio. Each charm is hanging from a silvery spiral with nearly nearly invisible line making them appear to float. Decorating each charm are colorful beads chosen specifically to go with each individual theme in the mobile. If you have children, I bet they would like one for their room. Your mother or sister may like a Magical Mobile for themselves. Be sure to watch the short YouTube video of these Magical Mobiles in action by highlighting the link, then right clicking and choosing the "go to link" option.

Like the Magical Wine Charms, custom Magical Mobiles can be made to your specifications. You can choose any 7 of the Magic Wand designs, Magical Wine Charm designs or you can contact me about your own ideas. I will make sure you get what you want.

When you order, please include in the special instructions the names of the shapes and the bead colors you would like.

And if that is not enough, I've added some wire rattles. They have a very soft, sweet song. A customer in Salem, OR asked that I make her a couple of them. A couple of years a go, she purchased a similar wand at a fair in Ashland. Check them out.

I ordered these wands as gifts for children and grandchildren in our large families. And for children and grandchildren if my co-workers. My daughter-in-law is a teacher and I gave her 2 a few years ago. They finally broke and she asked if I could get 2 more. Which prompted these orders. I also gave 1 to my granddaughter. They are truly magical. Everyone of all ages loves them.

I just finished a new painting. 18" x 18" abstract using acrylic paints and inks. I call this abstract #19. Please share. This the first of many paintings I will be doing. Please comment.

In case you are wondering how I bend wire. I invented this tool. It's very portable and I can bend 2 different gauges of wire by reversing the bit. There are only 2 of these in the world.

About

A Magic Wand for Everyone

First of all I want to thank Larry Tillotson for teaching me his bending techniques and recommending the materials I use for my wire art. Although my relationship with Larry did not survive, his art and and my gratitude live on.

Since then I have made structural changes to the Flinger that takes this wild action toy to another level. I continue to create original design magic wands and I craft beautiful mobiles from wire, string and beads. The wire has saved me on many occasions and at times, it has even fed me. Everyone loves the wire and I've never been any complaints. The question I get asked the most is, "What kind of magic does it have?" I reply, "What kind of magic do you want it to have? These Magic Wands are capable of attaching to whatever magic you desire."

The Flinger is another story. If you are a 10 year-old boy or you know a 10 year-old boy or your were a 10 year-old boy at one point in your life. Every boy loves anything that catapults objects and this is what the Flinger does. It flings objects. My favorite objects to fling with the Flinger are these soft pastel butter mints that you can buy in bulk. You see them at weddings and funerals for some reason. Each Flinger contains a heart as a reminder to always use the Flinger for good and never for evil. I personally do not believe in evil, but there are those who do and for those, I have this disclaimer. "I assume no liability or responsibility for how Flinger owners use their Flingers. I can only urge them to use the Flinger responsibly, but you know boys. The ammunition I provide has proven to propels the best, the least expensive and least impact-full to the environment. I'm pretty sure you can't shoot anyone's eye out with this toy. It may hurt, but it won't harm you.*

All of my products are 100% handmade, by me (so far) and I guarantee your satisfaction. If you are not happy with your Out of My Mind Art Shop product, simply return the item and I will refund you the costs of the product. There is absolutely no risk involved. Unless you are afraid of having fun.

While you are at it. Think about your family and friends. Think about how much joy could you bring to their lives with a simple gift of a Magic Wand or a Flinger. Imagine a Flinger competition at your next family reunion. All you need is a few Flinger Adventure Kits which include 2 Flingers and 2 bags of ammunition (Approximately 100 candies).

Come back often. Pick out a few things. Every so often I give special discounts to people who have been to the Out of My Mind Art Shop. Don't be left out.

That's pretty much it. Feel free to contact me and suggest designs. I can make custom orders if the custom order can be made. Email me for the details. Thanks for visiting, I hope you like my stuff.

*Children will use all sorts of inappropriate ammo in the Flinger such as; rocks, ice, fishing sinkers, glass, etc. I trust that most kids will have the good sense not to use objects that could be dangerous. Those that do use the Flinger for evil need to lose it forever.

    I was a social worker for over 30 years and worked with teens and families. I began to bend wire in the year 2000 after meeting a wire bender named Larry Tillotson who taught me how to bend. I am grateful for the lessons he taught me. Thanks Larry.

Hello and welcome to The Out of My Mind Art Shop. I want you to have the best shopping experience possible. My name is Ray and I make everything in my shop. I use an industrial material called an "aluminum TIG rod". It is used in the welding industry. This material, is manufactured in such a way that when it is bent and twisted into a Magic Wand, it produces two distinct and beautiful tones. For the magic, that is up to you.

My mission is to increase the silly and the whimsical in the world. Everyone needs more silly in their lives. Every time a Magic Wand, or a Flinger, Magical Wine Charm Set, Magical Bookmark or Magical Mobile is purchased I lovingly package it in colorful tissue paper and adorned it with lovely stickers. It feels like I'm wrapping a gift each time I prepare an order. It is so much fun.

Look around a little, ask a question if you are so inclined. I'm happy to serve you.

Ray

Shipping
I am now living in Costa Rica and shipping is through the Costa Rican Postal Service known as Correo. All packages are certified and insured. The good news is that shipping charges slightly more expensive, up $1 from the USPS prices. The bad news is orders will take between 10-15 business days to go from Costa Rica to the US. I am known for my super fast shipping, so I'm not real happy with this, but it's the cost of doing business from Central America. I anticipate you will like your items that much more for having to wait a little bit longer for them.

Rush orders are not really practical when shipping from outside the United States so I highly recommend that you plan well in advance if you are purchasing for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas or any other holiday.
Refunds and Exchanges
Let me know right away if there is anything wrong with your item upon arrival or if you are not satisfied with your purchase. PLEASE NOTE: All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical. That's the beauty of my products - each one is unique!

As with all handmade items, there are small variances between like items and from what you see in the photos.

Refunds are made once the item has been returned to me. Shipping charges on returns are the buyer's responsibility.

Custom orders may not be returned. Please contact the shipping carrier for any damages that may have occurred to the package.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always up for a new challenge! Don't hesitate to let me know if you'd like something created that you do not see - I am happy to accept custom orders on any detail of my work. Happy Shopping!
