So this past Christmas I got a nifty new cover for my Kindle Fire from the 'rents. First off: Pops, I think the jacket is awesome. It keeps my kindle safe, has a removable blue-tooth keyboard, and it's very own kickstand. All super handy and very useful.  The only thing is ... Well ... I don't ... not ... dislike how it looks.

Whew! Feels good to get that off my chest.

And fear not! A bit of leftover fabric paint, a roll of masking tape, and a Saturday afternoon later and I have a kindle case to crave.

The only tricky bit about this project is how to get a series of triangles to touch point to point. It requires a 4-step tape-paint-
dry-repeat process. Don't worry, I'll walk you through it.

I don't know about you, but lately I've been seeing neon everywhere. Aside from the nostalgia for neon troll shirts declaring how awesome I am (people have the right to know), I am completely taken with the latest trend: natural materials mixed with a blast of neon intensity.

I decided to kill two birds with one stone and remedy my bathroom storage problem (there's only so long a person can survive using plastic baggies as storage containers) and get my neon and natural fix. 

Behold! Hand crocheted hemp and nylon string baskets ... garsh, they're pretty.
