It's keeping me out of bars...

Here is my latest activity to help me escape from the reality that I live in Mt. Lebanon. I love my neighbors and I love my home. It is unfortunate that we are governed by ____, well, fill in the blank.

I am making key fobs/ backpack tags out of marine vinyl. I have over 200 designs available in a variety of colors.

L-R The Mouse, Aldi's quarter, USC rising senior, chicken, rooster

L-R The Stanley Cup, personalized hockey jersey, soccer, boxing gloves, skull & crossbones, Democrat, the coveted Mt. Lebanon unicorn, Republican, Hello Kitty, Eiffel Tower, scrubs, lightbulb, apple, Pittsburgh No Parking, camper

These can be personalized and are available for purchase at the low, low price of $5.00 each. Email me at, if interested in purchasing. I was thinking of writing "Lebo sucks" on my unicorn. That would help me feel better, since I am not moving.

Not taking into consideration of time and materials, I would have to sell 21,652 key fobs to equal what our Public Information Officer earns in a year* to produce magazine covers such as this one:

Scouting Honors Heroes and Heroin
*does not include longevity pay plus benefits such as breakfasts, lunches, dinners, health insurance, and phone bill reimbursement.

Thanks to those who ordered key fobs from me. Thank you, Pittsburgh Penguins for winning the Stanley Cup! It is my most popular key fob. Here are a few more that I have made.

L-R grocery cart, fire hydrant, nurse's cap, Mickey hand, mail truck, personalized volleyball,
cruise ship, tooth, and light bulb

I love the key fobs Elaine...what sizes can you make them in? I can use a few.

They vary in size, Nick. The skull and crossbones, for example, measures 2 1/4" across.

Mom, Is this cover fake?

E. T. Gillen said...

No, Steph. Straight from the mailbox. No Photoshop. This is what we MTL residents get for our tax dollars.

Thank you for the postal vehicle key fob Elaine, it's exactly what I was looking for and more than I was expecting.
