Kindle Cover Project

So Mom's friend had a bad experience purchasing a cover for her Kindle and when Mom mentioned my iPad organizer to her she asked if I could make a cover.

This was a pretty fun, little item to make.  I asked a friend from work to bring hers in so I could take some measurements and off I went.

Another pleasantly happy person.

The iPad2 Project

  Ever have the perfect something in mind but can never seem to find that exact item anywhere?  

  My husband gave me an iPad2 for graduation with a very nice leather cover.  I looked far and wide for an organizer that would also hold my charger, ear buds, attachments, etc. but I couldn't quite find anything that I really liked so I turned to making my own.  

  I flipped through several websites for ideas from others who created sleeves and cases but none of which had pockets for organizing.  I opted to create the standard iPad case with the opposite side dedicated to pockets.  It ended up with an extra, unintended pocket which actually comes in handy to hold the extension charger and misc papers, etc.  I do need to add elastic to some of the smaller pockets to prevent things from slipping out.

Reusable Coffee Cup Sleeves

  Had made a few a these in a different style a few years back and decided it was time for something new.  I found this style from multiple pages.  It's okay, definitely not a "drop the cup in and go" kind of style like my old one but it's cute and functions just as well.
  I will also have these listed on my "Fundraiser" link... check it out!  :)

The Swarovski "Puffy" Heart

  I have finally made this "puffy" heart after a few years of putting it off.  I kept reading about the difficulty in making it and, honestly, it was not nearly as bad as I anticipated. 
  I chose a couple of different colors (primarily teal for cervical cancer, purple for prostate cancer and white as a filler) to help me see the different "sections" of making the pendant.  So it looks a little 80's-90's but I love it  :)

   Taking advantage of this blogging bit has become my passage to share bits about me to friends and family (aside from that pesky Facebook account).  From our vacations, our wedding and our day-to-day daily lives, I also share with you hobbies and interests that I hope you find interesting, too.
