Cookie Sheet Work Station

I recently attended a button bracelet making class (yes, it is as cool as it sounds) and discovered a creative way to contain a project with small parts.  Michelle Wilson of Creative Design often beads using a mat made of Vellux on top of a cookie sheet to contain her project while she is working on it. (Michelle recommends using a beige colored mat because white and black are hard on the eyes).  This set-up makes it easy for her to sit with the project on her lap or on a table and to get up quickly if neededwithout the risk of ruining the project.  Consider using a surface like a cookie sheet when clipping coupons too.  Again, having a surface that can be moved easily avoids the risk of sudden disaster! read more
