I discovered Mary Engelbriet in the mid-nineties thanks to the most brightly-colored line of greeting cards I came across one day. Soon, I began to see more than greeting cards– there were boxes and bookmarks and all kinds of small memorabilia that carried the trademark little girl dispensing wisdom and humor in unusual ways and on unexpected things– like this set of magnets that I found some years back.
Check them out– each one of them has something truly funny and profound! All five serve the dual purpose of bringing a smile to everyone who sees them on my kitchen bulletin board (which is magnetic) and also serve to prop up important pieces of paper, notes, bills, and what-have-yous on the board. That’s right: I’m In Charge Here!
