MYOM (Make Your Own Magnet)

I've been anticipating the arrival of my donation goodie bag from the Obama folks -- which allegedly contains a bitchen round car magnet -- but got tired of waiting, so I decided to make my own signs. It's great the Obama website has media downloads. I did a bit of tweaking to make this official-looking sign, which got uploaded to Vistaprint and arrived this week.

And the signs are grabbing attention already! Seattleites, despite their reputation, are most certainly not reserved when they feel passionately about something. People have yelled "Obama!" to me as I drive by. When parked or idled, I've been asked, "Where did you get your sign?" I've already given one away to a fellow Costco shopper, and got another inquiry from a pedestrian today while waiting for a light. This sure was a nice change from when I used to smoke and get a loud, public scolding from complete strangers.

In fact, I was so enthused about the response I created another magnet, this one a portrait orientation. But folks, it's getting really late to put up signage. If you want one of these, please let me know and I'll order some more. They are about $9 apiece, and measure 17.3" x 11.25". Better yet, leave a comment with your email address and I'll send you the PDF so you can make your own signs.
