A New Way to Read the News!

How amazing is this hand-painted "News" sign from Three Potato Four?!

I admit that I'm a bit of a News junkie.  I love staying up to date on what's going on in this crazy world we live in!  I'm a huge politics dork, and the year before elections is quite exciting for me.  I'm already glued to the  coverage for next year's presidential elections.  Pretty dorky huh?

How do you keep up with the News??

If I'm at my parents' house, there is almost always a newspaper on the kitchen counter.  Something about a newspaper just seems warm and homey to me.  I can remember many lazy Saturday mornings, mindlessly pouring over a newspaper while eating my cold cereal.  I'm not so great at reading a real newspaper now, although I do collect newspapers for fun projects like this...

Now, I DVR my favorite News shows and follow my favorites News channels via Twitter.  On my iPad, I even get instant pop-up alerts of the latest breaking News.  I am somewhat proud of the fact that even while flying on an airplane from Denver to Maui, I found out about Osama bin Laden's demise even before the public news broke. (Thanks, Twitter!)

Do you remember the iPad case I shared last week?? A while back, many of you kindly shared your favorite iPad apps with me.  I'm quickly becoming an app-aholic!  Now I can use my iPad to keep up with globally relevant topics.  There's a brand new iPad app called the collection.

The 30-minute i-Pad Case

A long-awaited tutorial.   And a simple, sweet tutorial to boot!
Something you can make in under 30 minutes!  (Promise!)
I was thrilled when my husband won an i-Pad2 at work!  My husband isn't really a "Mac" guy, so I was lucky enough to inherit this little gem.  I absolutely LOVE it!  Love all of the fun apps... Isn't there an "app" for just about everything now??
But I think Little Man uses it more than me.  He navigates it like a pro.  The i-Pad was a lifesaver when we took our family trip to Maui.  He loves the educational games, songs, and stories.  Plus--the i-Pad has become his own personal boom box to play his favorite songs!  He is very careful with the i-Pad, and he knows the rules.
BUT he's still a 2-year-old.  I made the mistake of traveling with the i-Pad before getting a case for it.  It almost immediately started to get scratched.
I KNEW the i-Pad needed its own little snuggie.  I looked around a bit online.
But on an impulse, I bought some fabric, and I literally whipped this up in 30 minutes.
Yes, me, the beginning sewer.
So that's like 20 minutes for expert sewers.
Not too shabby.
Come see how to make your own i-Pad case!
