I have done tons of different FHE charts over the years. I like this one because it is compact (about 6" x 13"). It can fit on an easel or be easily put away when it is not being used. But I mainly love the fact that it is magnetic and is easy to switch around. My girls love making these magnets - it is done by cutting cute paper in a circle and gluing them to the back of "gems" then hot gluing a magnet to the back of that. The vinyl name is then placed over the top. The kit pricing of $11 includes the frame, metal, vinyl, 6 gems/magnets/family names - (you provide the paper and both types of glue, extra gems/magnets/names can be purchased for $.75 each).
This next picture is one of my favorite setups. This particular one is done on a different type of metal. More expensive, but great because things can be done on either side (smooth edges all around, and clean on both sides.) Perfect for an everyday project and a holiday on the other side. (also available in 12x12 size).
The above 4 pictures show my 6x6 block ideas. Finished these blocks are $9.50. As a kit the cost is $5.50 that includes everything except for the paint and brush. (wood, metal, vinyl and brads for securing metal.
My 18x18 magnet boards were a hit at Raspberry Days... Kit pricing is $9.00 for the metal, $2 for the vinyl, and $2 for the ribbon (or you could pick your own.) The finished cost is $15 if hung with a ribbon and $21 with a metal rod hanger. These are perfect for anywhere in your house, who doesn't have a billion things to remember, or pictures to share! You can use magnets you already have or create fun ones like the flowers and gems pictured below.

I love shelf sitters, I think they are such fabulous little gifts and look great sitting anywhere with fun stuff behind it. Here are a few new ideas (see the brochure below for more). These are sold in a kit for $3.50 or finished for $7.50. (the size is 16" x 2".)
