GRABAROO'S NOW in BLACK...and my favorite JanetBasket

GrabARoo's now come in Black (xl only)!!! You may wonder whey I am excited about this. My brother stocks shelves and his hands are so rough that they could be used as sandpaper and I'm not exaggerating even a little bit. These gloves are wonderful for anyone who handles paper or cardboard. Those papers take the oil right out of your skin and leaves your hands so dry that they crack. Not any more....GrabARoo's to the rescue :) His birthday is coming and when he opens these gloves....he will be sooo thrilled. (he does not read my blog :)

I've had several e-mails from women asking me if I thought GrabARoo's would work for husbands with their jobs.  If they don't like about Black? 

You know what else I like about GrabARoo'sAudrey, Miriam, and Tracy.  GrabARoo's are their invention and I've had the great fortune to spend time with them at Quilt Market.  If you have any questions at all about GrabARoo's....just ask them....they are honest and very helpful.  You can visit them here.

I carry this bag with my punchneedle in it when I go to meetings or when I think I'm going to get an spare few minutes to punch.  I have been stopped a few times lately and asked where I got it.  Yes....I told them I have a store and I gave them my business card.  Can you blame me?  I was thinking about it and I remembered I never blogged about my wonderful new friend.
She is a  Red Floral Eco Bag by JanetBasket.  I have not given her a name yet....but I should. 
She is like a Marcus Welby MD's bag....but she is pretty and RED. 
I like the handle because I can cover the strap with the padded cover-it Velcro's closed.  The handle does not bite into my hand....I like that :)
Look how many pockets she has (too bad Polly Pockets is taken....that would have been a great name for this bag.  I can keep my punchneedle book and my writing tablet in one side....
and on the water (one for for Rosemary)
And if those were not enough pockets ....there are large pockets on each end.  I keep my punchneedle case in one end and my snacks in the other. (yes I carry food....what if I get lost/stranded/starve to death)

Oh yea.....and because I'm neurotic and don't ever want to "need a thread" there is room for my two boxes of threads.  I don't always carry my threads....but if I think I many need them....I just pop them into the bag. you know what strangers know....I love my bag :)  Tomorrow is the boys Winter Carnival at their school.  I've worked on the Silent Auction and Raffle items and I'm hoping we have a wonderful turnout.  The boys are excited because we will have a jail there....they have to pay tickets to lock Mommy and Daddy up and Mommy and Daddy will have to pay tickets to get out.  Cute idea isn't it?  The boys love it.  Oh yea....did I mention the cake walk?  That too will be a huge hit.  Time for games?  I'm not guys love the cake walk and I know I'll have to tear them away from the raffle baskets too!  I'll take some pix and post should be lots of fun.

JanetBaskets NOW AVAILABLE from $18.99-$26.99

Not only did I add the JanetBaskets (yes it is spelled correctly :) but I also added a few of my other favorites as well. 

Prevent spilled drinks and eliminate clutter on your craft or sewing table. Durable steal holder attaches to the edge of most flat surfaces and is designed to hold a drink and reusable trash bag (included). Holds 32 ounce drinks.

I have one of these and I use it for my drink when I'm working downstairs in my sewing area.  I also take it with me to retreats so I don't spill my drink all over my pattern, fabric, machine etc.  I'm also a scrapbooker so you know I definitely use it soda on my photos thanks :)

I thought this tote would never arrive.  I think I waited 5 months or maybe longer to get this beautiful tote at IHAN.  It was on back order at every distributor I use for months. 

Do you remember the carpet in the skywalk in Houston that I loved?  Here is a photo:

It was designed by Paula Nadelstern.  No wonder the tote caught my eye so quickly.  I guess I know what I like when I see it....even when I don't remember the designers name.

Now for the JanetBaskets!!!
This amazingly lightweight tote features aluminum exterior structure and is completely collapsible. Originally designed as a market tote, it is also a super versatile project tote. The metal structure keeps access to goods inside immediate. Made of durable nylon in great prints; self-fabric lined. Excellent quality. Exterior pocket.

The EcoBag is potentially the ultimate project tote. The extended zipper opens down the width of the bag for easy access to entire bag interior. Large pockets line the interior sides of the bag. Bags are lined in coordinating solid nylon fabric. Bag bottoms feature large rubber mat corners. Handles are just long enough to slip to a shoulder. The feature we like best is that the zippered edges have metal support so the bag keeps its shape when reaching inside and doesn't droop when carried!

I really like the JanetBaskets I bought for myself.  They are very well made and are excellent for projects, shopping, organization and errand running too.  I bought them to hold things here on my desk.  I typically have a pile of papers or mail that I don't have time to sort.  Sometimes I have products that need to go downstairs etc.  I just put everything into my JanetBasket and I'm ready to go downstairs or to my file cabinet.  No longer am I dropping everything everywhere because I have it stacked 18 inches high in my hands.   

I also carry one when I run errands.  Everyone smiles when they see it and ask me where I got it.  Of course I just have to tell them....I got it at "I Have A Notion."

I personally guarantee you won't be disappointed in any of these products.  I own them myself and as most of you know....I don't waste my money!!!

I Love This Coat

Don't you just love this coat?  Rosemary (on the right) bought it for Sarah, her daughter, for Christmas.  I'm in love with Sarah's coat.  I think it looks so great on her.  She even has this wonderful purple hat she wears with it.  Oh about perfect fit.

Something is up with my camera.  Most of my pictures are coming out blurry like this.  I think I will sit down with the manual and see if I can't figure out why all my pix are blurry.  Lots of Christmas Day photos are blurry too.

I am off to add those Janet Baskets to my website if you liked them and wondered where they are.....they have not been added just yet.  A girl has to have a holiday you know :)
