What Do You Do?

When you travel, what do you do while your stuck on an airplane with little or no leg room? Do you people watch? Are you one of those people who is always by a window trying to figure out what the city or town below might be? This past week I went to San Antonio for work…this time I had my Kindle Keyboard, Wi-Fi, 6″ E Ink Display – includes Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers I loved it!
It was so easy to read and when time to put up it slipped right into it’s case and then into my purse. I was afraid the battery wouldn’t last since I hadn’t charged it in weeks, but it still had 3/4 of it’s battery life left when I started my trip. All in all it worked wonderful! Now to load up music on it for my listening pleasure!

Aboriginal Design Kindle Case – via Etsy!

Aboriginal Design Kindle Case

A couple of weeks ago I purchased my Kindle but just couldn’t settle on a case to go with it. So to mix it up a little and go the unique route I searched for just the right one on Etsy. Why not make it special by getting one that was handmade. This one caught my eye at Solar Threads Etsy shop. So many to choose from and shipping was so fast! I ordered it on Saturday and it was waiting in my mail on Monday! Talk about fast! The case is put together nicely and it’s a much higher quality than the bulk manufactured one I almost bought. The colors are so bright and the design playful! Now my Kindle will stay safe in it’s own one of a kind case! Thank you again Becky @ Solar Threads!

Upcycled – Rice Bag eBook Reader Case

Well I got a little thrifty this weekend. I emptied the rice I’d purchased into glass jars so that it stays fresh and doesn’t attract any pantry moths. Since the rice came in its own burlap bag with a zipper top and handles I couldn’t just throw it away. I decided to repurpose it. Added in a little cotton liner and now you have your very own bag for keeping your Kindle or Nook safe from scratches!

All in all it took only about an hour to do by hand since I don’t own a sewing machine. Wash by hand and dry the bag before starting to remove any left over rice dust.
