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!!!



  1. I love the Janet Baskets. Look great for grocery shopping, quilt classes/retreats, picnics and many other applications. And I'm happy to hear you have the Cup & clamp holder. I actually have something similar from MemoryMaker, but they've stopped selling them. I'm always being asked by others where to get them, so I'll send them to IHAN to get your Cup & Camp holders. A must have for every quilter (and scrapbooker).


  2. I too love the baskets and I really need to quit coming are so bad husband is not going to let me play with you anymore if I keep ordering stuff!! I truly do love all the information you have on products, thanks!!

  3. Those baskets and totes are pretty!

  4. I don't have that brand of beverage holder, but I do have a creative memories one. I now own 3 of them. I have them on my sewing tables, and then share when I have guests over to sew. I also take them on retreat. I think they are something everyone should own. A very worthwhile investment.
