Is your refrigerator cluttered with magnets?

Mine is...or rather was! Until I created a magnet wall...

Well, the problem with magnets is you run out real estate on the refrigerator so fast! So, when we recently got our house painted, I decided to experiment with a magnet display wall.

We stuck small strips of iron sheets with fevibond (any strong glue will do) at intervals. These strips are used by painters to apply putty or plaster of paris to the walls before painting. This is a quick and inexpensive solution.

An alternative solution is to get metal strips cut in long length and drilled into the walls (they don't stick so easily with fevibond). The advantage is that you can create zig zag lines or a grid to put up your magnets.

Of course, we added the wall stickers to make it a train magnet wall :) And, since there is so much more space than the fridge, we use it to display school artwork, cards, pictures besides the magnets :) The magnets act as anchors!

Next time I intend to create a bigger wall for sure :)

Any interesting ways you use to put up magnets? Send me an email with your ideas at [email protected] so we can share it with our readers.

cupcakes & ice creams, candies & lollipops

That's the name of our latest theme, exclusively available at Bibzy ( - this one is in luxurious 400ct sheeting in a new palette of pastel colors.
Here's a picture of the store display...
I love the way AA Living has coordinated Bibzy's pompom blankets and gumdrops rug (it's my favorite!) in the display.

We used cutwork embroidery and lots of appliques in the four shapes in pastel colors to come up with this theme. Pompoms and satin bows were added liberally on the cupcakes and lollipops. Heart shaped buttons added that extra touch on the ice cream sundaes :)
The baby nap mat comes in a coordinated cupcake print in soft flannel!

The cushions in this theme are super adorable, I think! I maybe biased :)

The curtains were kept simple: Bows and buttons on the curtain and a cutwork valance to add the right balance in a theme which has a lot of motifs!

And last but not the least, the towels and toiletry kits perfectly complementing the whole theme!

The CUPCAKES & ICE CREAMS, CANDIES & LOLLIPOPS theme is available at:

AA Living

Rajul Apts, 9 Harkness Road, (Opp. gold’s gym),
Nepean Sea Road. Mumbai - 6
