The Fridge Family

We're BACK!
Let me reacquaint you with my family,
this is Me, Hubby and the Six, all grown up just a little more...

These figures are little magnetic laminated us!
Just like ABC letters they live up on the fridge and are fun for all to play with.

A quick tutorial for you and if you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them in your comments.

1.Google some Vintage patterns, Woman, Men, Teenager, child etc..
Save the image then print it out.
2.  Select a good photo of each member of your family, print out
3. Cut out your heads and paste them onto the vintage outfit you have chosen
4. Laminate then cut out laminate figure
5. Stick a magnet on the back, I used a good quality roll of sticky magnetic tape.
Done, Your Family is ready for the Fridge
 and hours of entertainment for your children.

Now, I did actually waste quite a lot of paper and ink having to print out our head shots and bodies and match up the correct size of head/body ratio, but in saying that, the girls loved playing with the out of proportioned bodies and heads that did not make it onto the fridge, just like paper dolls.
A simple but fiddly process, it was well worth it in the end.
This is actually our only Family portrait
and we get to rearrange it anyway we like!
 So how have You been? I would love to hear from you.
 I've missed this space and am hoping to get back on a regular basis again now.
I'll spend the next few weeks catching up on everything
we've been up to in the last eight months since we moved out to our new property.
It's more amazing than we could ever had imagined!
There is so much I want to share with you.  x

  2. I cant wait to hear all about it, I have missed your posts x

  3. Woohoo! You're back. I must say that I was very excited to see that you had a new header yesterday and thought it was a sign that there was some movement around the site.
    Looking forward to seeing what has been going on in your neck of the woods.

  6. You've been away but not forgotten Karen! So lovely to see you back and all your family looking so grown up. Can't wait to hear all about your new life on acreage. What've you been up to? cheers Wendy

  7. I have so been wanting to see what you have been up to, so I am glad you are back. It's great to read about your life - I'm jealous of your home on that piece of land. But I know it is not realistic for me, so I get to "live" it through you!

  8. Love the magnets, looking forward to catching up on all your news.

  9. Yaaaaaaay !
