I've finally completed the crochet pattern for a mug cozy. And it's available for $.99 cents at www.barnesandnoble.com or click HERE for the link.
Let me tell you a little bit about this pattern. This mug cozy pattern is very simple to crochet. It consist of mainly double crochet and single crochet stitches. What's unique about this pattern is, I've designed it, without the need of a button. Because I'm always having a button dilemma. But I've also included an alternative to use a loop for a button. In this crochet pattern, you'll find techniques to add uniqueness and varieties to a simple mug cozy crochet pattern.

I just recently figured out how to published an e-book with Barnes and Nobles. I do believe that one day all books will be read on some time of digital format like the Barnes and Nobles Nook or Nook Simple Touch.
Thanks to Barnes and Nobles, it is now so easy to publish your e-book and begin selling in as little as 24 hours.
The first thing you want to do, is have your book ready for format and your book cover ready to go.
I had no idea that your book format should be as simple as possible. I was using state of the art layout program like Serif, QuarkXpress, and even Adobe inDesign, but the best tool is really Microsoft Word. I was use to creating layout for print and had no idea that when creating a layout for e-book, it should be lite as possible. If you book exceed 30 mb, it will get declined. So I had to convert all of my images in my book to 500 pixels. My book is heavy in images. It contains lots of diagrams and figures and etc... But after reducing my images resolution, it was less than 10mb, which is what I needed to upload to PUBIT.com
Your book cover must be in JPEG, and should be at least on the side to be 1000 pixels.
Registering with PUBIT is easy. You just need credit card (but won't charge it) and bank account information so you can receive your royalties for e-book sales.
Here's a screen shot of my e-book on barnes and nobles website.
Handmade crochet cover for Nook Simple Touch
I wanted to see how it looks with a flap. But I'm not that thrilled with it. I like it better without a flap and just a latch that goes around a button to secure my e-reader inside.
Purple with White Trim Mug Cozy. embellished with a white crochet flower motif. Secures with a button. Mug cozys are the latest trend in craft world these days and they are going hot on www.etsy.com Of course I sale them too. Check out my etsy shop, click my link up top.
Drawstring Bag for iPhone or iPod Touch
Had a button dilemma. Had to figure out a way to make an iPhone bag without and still secure the phone inside. I think these bags are much better than the ones I made with buttons. The drawstring really secure your phone inside and acts like a tote, to help you carry your iPhone with ease.
and of course, its light weight, well made, machine washable and makes a perfect gift or fundraising idea. or just make one for yourself.
the great thing about them is, they are really made for the garage stuff, so they hold pretty heavy stuff without bucking so far. Made of hard plastic.
so all this must fit in that shelving unit.
much better, now I can get to work. It holds all my desktop printers, including my epson 11x17 printer, office supplies and shipping supplies, more office tools like my paper punch hole machine, book binding machine, paper cutters, and so much more.
I paid about $20 each unit, so this 3 set is about $60 bucks. not bad.
