FlatBox-LunchBox - Folds Out to a Placemat by Rita Floyd-Vester FlatBox-LunchBox is a washable, heat resistant food carrying container that converts into a placemat to provide a clean surface with each use. My name is Rita. I have been a teacher for 10 years and have 3 children as well. I noticed that when a child got sick at school, very soon a few more followed. I searched the Internet where I found that some studies blamed the spread of germs on the water fountains, while others blamed it on poor hygiene....but even with the "hand sanitizer craze" the spreading of germs was still evident. I dove deeper into the topic and came across a shocking research conducted by the University of Arizona: "The germiest place in a school building....is the cafeteria table."

DIY Gold Tube Bracelets I have very vivid memories of walking into a bead store for the first time, almost 15 years ago, and being overwhelmed by the million and ten ideas that filled my mind. I was immediately hooked on the concept of transforming simple and unexpected elements into something beautiful and wearable. That moment was the catalyst for my eventual path into jewelry design and craft – my higher calling, if you will. Today’s tutorial takes me back to my first foray into jewelry making, where I’ll show you how to make two delightful bracelets using the same basic component. Tutorial: Lunch Bag Thank you for encouraging me to write up a tute on this lunch (bento box) bag! I really like this bag pattern because this bag, measuring approximately 9"(width) x 7 1/2"(hight w/o handles) x 5 1/2" (depth), can be used not only for bento boxes of any kind but also for carrying little crafty projects like yarn + needles. It has a cover inside that can give nice privacy for whatever in there and the cover can also prevent it from getting dusty in a windy day. It is much sturdier and larger than the fabric basket, so if you found that your fabric basket was too small or too floppy as a gift bag, this might be a good alternative..?! As usual, I have tons of images to share each step with you, so bare with me!

The Greyling Tablet Case Tutorial it was my lovely pal mandy's (of sugar & candy handbags) birthday a few weeks ago and i knew i wanted to spoil her. i posted the business card holder i made her but i also made her another pressie - a handmade tablet case for her new tablet. woot woot! mandy is a whiz when it comes to making her gorgeous handbags for her business so i knew i wanted this tablet case to have a purse like feel to it. a mandy vibe so to speak. i even named it after her. her maiden name is greyling - thus the "greyling tablet case tutorial" was born. mandy has a great eye and a flare for prints and i knew she had been eying my pat bravo stash of summerlove for art gallery fabrics. i used "naivety berry" for the upper curved portion (the faux flap) and "beyond bliss ginger" for the main body print. the tablet case has a tab closure that buttons on the front with a curved faux flap. it's interfaced and padded so it will keep those trusty tablets safe and cozy :) you ready to make one for your tablet or ipad?
