Wanted: Attractive Refrigerators   Leave a comment

It’s wit.

In my opinion.

Magic Bottle Openers stick to your attractive refrigerator. If your refrigerator isn’t attractive, then the MBO will still wall mount. And it doesn’t care how attractive your wall is, because it’s pre-drilled and I’ll give you the mounting hardware.

MBOs continue to be my # 1 seller. I now use 6 different colors & styles of bottle openers mounted on the seemingly infinite combinations of wood possible when you work with 20 different hardwood species.

Mrs M is even helping me make them now, as its best if I have help when we’re gluing the magic into the MBOs. Double Magic MBOs have 7 pieces of magic, and it gets pretty exciting when those pieces start, uh, attracting each other, and flipping into places where I don’t want them.

Magic has to be contained, you see. If it’s allowed to run rampant, then unforeseen things could happen, and that’s just not what I’m about.

Here’s the latest from the garage woodshop!

There’s A Clamor: More Magic   Leave a comment

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeIf you think you’ve been seeing a lot of Magic Bottle Openers in this space … you’re right. They are now my # 1 seller.

Imagine if you were the one making them, one at a time.

So, it was time for new designs. New woods. I even added a 5th color of metal bottle opener.

Lots of different stuff here. Honest.

So where am I? I’ve made about 150 of these this year, and I believe I’m going to make another 100 before the end of the year. If I can keep up, that is. I may want to go to a movie at some point.

But I’m not counting on that!

By the way … if you’re new to these, then you may want some definitions and to understand why these are magic. For all of those explanations – and more pictures! – go here. All of these MBOs are approximately 5″ x 10″ x 3/4″. Pricing is simple: $35 for single magic models, and $45 for double magic.

New: Gifts For Groomsmen   4 comments

This story has such nice symmetry to it.

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeWay back when, at our very first Mrs M event – the Santa Clarita Street Fair! – we met a wonderful young lady as our neighbor. She was a pro at doing craft fairs, and she showed kindness to us at our first event. Here’s what I said about our neighbor at that event on March 25, 2014:

Mrs. M’s wasn’t the only store there offering handmade products, but we were on the more uncommon side. The sweet young ladies running the booth next to us sold unique handmade jewelry that they make for ankles & feet. They were good neighbors, and Little Girl even approves. Check out their website, here.

Flash forward 2+ years later, and we ran into Sarah in her Jungle Bee booth at a different event this Spring. Come to find out, she was getting married … and she loved my Magic Bottle Openers enough that she drug her fiancé down to see them. And order them for all of his groomsmen!

Daniel was all in, and it was my pleasure to make 9 MBOs – with double magic – for the guys standing up with him.

Since then, I’ve been told that these are perfect groomsmen gifts. Well, OK then. I’m happy to help!


Engraved 16 - MBO Groomsmen

The groom asked that I mix it up and use several different designs for his wedding party … so none of these 9 MBOs are exactly alike.

And, of course, since the happy couple are good people, it was my pleasure to make an engraved cutting board for them as well:

More Magic Required   7 comments

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeI have a mission to bring more magic into everyone’s life.

Because who couldn’t use a little magic?

Here’s the Magic Bottle Opener at work in our home, bringing us magic, one bottle cap at a time:

Magic Bottle Opener - FridgeMany people try to tell me that it’s not magic holding the bottle caps in place, but they’re wrong.

It’s magic. Rare earth magic.

After all, what else makes metal things hover in space, other than magic? The laws of gravity no longer apply. It’s magic!

The only problem I have, honestly, is keeping up with the demand for these Magic Bottle Openers (I call them MBOs). They quickly became my best-selling item, once I started making them in quantity. I made one, and sold only two special orders last year. This year, I made a selection … and people started selecting.

There are two basic options: single magic and double magic. The single magic version is made to wall mount, and the double magic version will stick on your attractive refrigerator – or could also be used as a wall mount, if you choose. I include the screws to mount your MBOs on the wall with every purchase (you just remove the small screws holding on the bottle opener and replace them with longer screws to do a wall mount).

For your perusal, here are 19 new MBOs. 10 are single magic, and 9 are double magic:

Everyone needs magic in their life, and these bottle openers require you to believe in magic.

Just find your favorite icy cold bottled beverage, and flip the cap with the opener … and the cap will be caught in mid-air by the wood.

It’s magic.

And that’s all I’m saying about that subject.
