Magnetic Makeup Board Sale

The time has come…

This sale starts now and will be based on a first come, first serve basis. The first person to claim a board is the one who gets it. You have a few options as to how you can claim a board:

Option 1: Email me at beyondtheteachersdesk@hotmail.com

Option 2: You can send me a message though the KIK app. My username is KatieFigYaDig.

Option 3: Leave a comment on this post.

Option 4: If you know me personally you can text/call me.

Once a board is claimed we can then discuss board pick up. I will hold your board for no more than 2 weeks. After the 2 weeks is up I will place all boards which have not been picked up back on sale.

*Unfortunately, I am not currently able to ship this batch of boards. This first batch is my test run so I want to start off with getting one to everyone who wants one locally initially and see if that runs smoothly. Once all my local customers have been served I will possibly be opening an Etsy.com page to sell throughout the US. If you have any questions about possibly having a board shipped to you from the next batch, you can email me at beyondtheteachersdesk@hotmail.com (serious inquires only please).

All board prices include the board itself, rare earth magnets and a instruction/information/idea sheet.

If you have any further questions please check out my Makeup Board Q & A post.

Makeup Board Q & A

Before the magnetic boards go on sale I wanted to put together a list of some questions you might have with answers. That way you can get all your questions answered in one place and I don’t have to answer the same questions over and over and over again (hehehe).

How/when will you start selling?

I’m going to put up a blog post with pictures of all the boards I currently have done on Sunday June 3nd at 11am (Chicago time). Once the pictures are posted the sale will begin on a first come first serve basis. First person to claim a board is the one who will get it.

Will you ship the boards?

Unfortunately, I am not currently able to ship the boards. This first batch is my test run so I want to start off with getting one to everyone who wants one locally initially and see if that runs smoothly. Once all my local customers have been served I will possibly be opening an Etsy.com page to sell throughout the US. The boards are fairly large (see sizes below) so it’s going to cost an arm and a leg to ship. I’m also worried about them making it to the customer in one piece. With all that being said, if you still have any questions about having a board shipped to you, you can email me at beyondtheteachersdesk@hotmail.com (serious inquires only please).

How can I pick up my board?

We will discuss board pick up once you claimed a board.

How long do I have to pick up my board?

Once a board has been claimed I will hold it for no more than 2 weeks. After the 2 weeks is up I will place all boards which have not been picked up back on sale.

What sizes do you have?

There will be two different sizes available:

– Small board (20 inches long by 9 inches wide)

– Large board (28 inches long by 12 inches wide)

How much do they cost?

Small boards are $35* and large boards $55*

*price includes: all board materials, magnets and labor

What do I get with my board?

– Small board: board, 25 small rare earth magnets, 5 large rare earth magnets and an instruction/information/idea sheet.

– Large board: board, 50 small rare earth magnets, 10 large rare earth magnets and an instruction/information/idea sheet.

What are rare earth magnets?

Rare earth magnets are a very strong type of magnet. The magnets you will receive with purchase have an approximate pull force of 1.6 pounds (small) and 2.4 pounds (large).

What kind of paper did you use for the background?

At the bottom of this post I included a picture with the 6 different background papers I used for this set of boards.

Do you take custom orders?

I’m not taking custom orders at the moment but it may be something that will happen in the future if this run goes smoothly.

I hope this Q & A was helpful. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to either leave a comment on this post or email me at beyondtheteachersdesk@hotmail.com

Here are the papers I chose to use for the background. I stuck with mostly neutral choices, that way the boards can grow with you even as your style changes.

Makeup Board Sneak Peak!

I know I promised more blog posts this week but I have been a busy, busy bee the past two days. I wanted to check in anddd give you a peak at what I’ve been doing. Before I say anymore here are some pictures…

In case you ever wondered what over 1,600 rare earth magnets look like…

Pink nails and power tools make me happy!

Oh, there’s just my dog being lazy in our backyard on his 8th birthday.

Plywood is all cut!

This little guy wanted to crash the party. Eeeek!

The awesome floor mat in our garage.

When you cut sheet metal these pretty spirals happen. I was thoroughly amused.

And now the messy parts begin…

See, I wasn’t lying! Manicure = A little China Glaze Pink Voltage and a little liquid nails.

You will be flat whether you like it or not!

Background application in full effect = perfectionism in full effect.

Side note: being a crafter and a perfectionist usually ends with someone being unhappy and that person is usually named Katie.

My stepdad’s new table and in case you were wondering we definitely got out a stopwatch and it only takes 6 seconds to set up! Again, thoroughly amused.

Why yes, it was 90 degrees (F) in the garage the entire time this was taking place. Hopefully I at least sweated off a few pounds! *fingers crossed*

Ahhhhh, I’m covered in glue AND pink glitter! Needless to say there is glitter all over everything!

Well at least those books JJC wouldn’t buy back are put to good use…

By this time you may have guessed that construction of magnetic makeup boards is in FULL SWING! More details will soon follow but until then here’s a peak at some of the boards…

Well I did say it was only a peak! You’ll get to see the finished products soon enough.

Have to go back to construction now, byeee.

Everyone smile! It’s Friday!
