It started with Spider-pillow

My photo
A while back when i worked at The Comic Book Shoppe (bank st) we had a regular christmas secret santa. The first year i was there i pulled Ted who had a thing for Spider-man. In one of those strange moments of brilliant clarity I whipped up spider-pillow. It was the old Spider-man logo with a round pillow in the middle and 8 3-D legs all made out of comfy fun fur....things have continued in this manner. This is my so called craft

Fridge magnets are hard to come by in New Zealand

you would think i could find these everywhere. in Canada i walk into a dollar store and i'm overwhelmed by options. even grocery stores carry them on the ends of aisles; not the case in New Zealand.

I found some at a $2 store but they were either to froofroo to imagine (think gossmer fairy) or just plain ugly (think frog wearing a sporting outfit).

what i did find was the following

12 magnets $1.50
5 small wooden cows $2

with the judicious use of some super glue i give you fridge magnets on the cheap. Blaise has requested i find wooden sheep next to use up the other magnets.

Ingenious! Because we all should have magnetic cows on our fridge (except I have none, but now I want to get some)
