{go make me} stamped stone fridge magnets

Love-you-and-me-fridge-magnetsIf you're like me (memory like a sieve) there's always something important to remember or kid's artwork to admire and it ends up on the fridge door as a permanent temporary reminder

Why not have some fun by painting little stones (with magnets attached) to personalise your fridge? In reality, I should have little messages like "Don't Eat those Tim Tams" or "Don't Even Think About Eating Last Night's Lasagna" but the mantras would only fit on a boulder and could prove difficult attaching to the fridge door. So, stick to simplicity of a few letters per stone. Super easy to make and how-to instructions to follow
