Time on my hands..

Happy Wednesday everyone!! I hope that everyone is having a great day. Today has been ok so far. I was catching up on posts and noticed that Jen (Cre8tive Quilter) posted about her Side Kick:

Jen mentioned that she loved it because it kept her drink off the table and it wouldn't get knocked over, sweat on things making a wet mess etc. Well I decided that I was going to look for one myself. There are a few listed on Ebay but they were not really a deal when you can get one from a Creative Memories site for almost the same price and you don't have to worry about waiting for the auction to end and then for the other party to mail it off to you. Another thought that crossed my mind.. if you buy from your local consultant your helping someone in your community directly. I don't know call it what you want but I have been shopping the small town stores because it helps someone else out. Just a thought.. you could order now and have it before retreat.. smiles

On that same note.. while searching ebay I came across this seller h2obrogrok who isn't selling the side kick but sewn scrap bags that look like this:
I was thinking that if you ladies ordered one for your retreat that you could have it in time to take with you and then might even be able to make the bag while you're there.. super easy project.. Just a thought. I know I have put a side kick on my wish list.. well if you could call it that its more like the list of things that I want and they get marked off when I have the extra cash to get them.. smiles.

Funny, I've been thinking about making a cloth bag for mine. Great idea! I think I'll have to shoot that lady an email to see if she has any tips!
