Grand Opening!

I'm doing a little shameless promotion for myself today! Shameless promotion for my brand new Etsy shop, Kimba Made!


Can you live without one of these?


Probably. But they are pretty, no?


They are magnetic inspiration boards (or memo boards or message boards).


They're made with my very own fingers using the finest spray paint available and fun fabric from designers like Amy Butler and Heather Bailey.


I've made them for friends before and they've always said, "You should sell these!" So, now I am.

Do you want one? There is a link to my shop somewhere over there --------------->

Check it out! And then when you're done, make sure you've entered your name for our fabulous giveaway from Meg at Bode22. Her clocks are fantastic!

I love Kimba Made! I'm pretty sure I remember some of these memo-boards in their original form from a previous post(about how your husband doesn't know why you collect these things)? Maybe I'm wrong? I just remember a box of frames and trays! They look AMAZING!

Great idea Kimba! Good luck with the Etsy shop. :)

Amber said...

What a great idea! Last year, I made a fabric-covered corkboard that I put in a frame that I painted and distressed. I have it in my kitchen and I pin pictures of my friends' babies on it.

I never thought of doing a magnetic one. That's a great idea! Yours are so pretty. Love the toile ones!

Pretty Organizer said...

Wow Kimba lady! Soooo much talent coursing through those fingertips! Isn't spray painting fun? My lawn looks like I hired a graffiti artist, my wedding ring needs to be professionally cleaned (duh, I never remember to take it off) and after working in a cloud of spray paint we won't even talk about the colors I see when I blow my nose... THAT comment is not for a public wall! Oh please don't hate me for being so frank. The joy of creativity. The boards look great. Congrats on your new store!

Heather said...

I tried to DM you on Twitter in response to your DM to me, but Twitter is being silly and won't let me. I will definitely add your link to my blog post! Beautiful stuff! Will you be hosting a giveaway by chance?

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Congrats on your new Etsy shop, Kimba! That's so exciting. Your stuff looks great, too. I'm partial to the one with the black and white toile since that's the fabric I have in my kitchen and family room. :-)
