Mini Magnetic Memo Board

This little bee started this whole project...

I bought a package of these adorable bee push pins at

When I got home I found that in the packaging there was this very
cool piece of 5" x 5" galvanized steel.... 

And so there it was... the challenge... what could I make with it?

It was magnetic!!!!

I screwed it to a piece of wood... 
painted the wood with the vinegar/steel wool solution to age it, 
and started creating.

I added a hook to the bottom that would hold a giant clip...

And the clip holds a picture...
(actually some old relative)

On the top I added a matching metal piece to hang it from...

And there it was, a mini magnetic memo board,
thanks to the bees!
