Our First Blog

Laughing Fridge Art Magnets was created by John and Donna McLean as a way to turn a hobby into a small business. We're a couple of baby boomers who started making magnets on a whim to give as amusing gifts. They turned out to be a big hit, so we kept making more!

We use birch plywood, draw out the design, and John cuts out the shape. We each paint our own designs using acrylic craft paints, and the finished product is sprayed with several thin layers of lacquer. Each one has a flat magnet on the back and is signed, dated and numbered.

Here's one of our magnets for sale on Etsy:
