Works For Me Wednesday #2

Here is the second edition of Works For Me Wednesday from Shannon over at Rocks In My Dryer. I have never found a mousepad that I have fallen in love with. I have seen darling ones with cute puppies, black & white photos of children, beautiful landscapes, etc. But I have never found one that just screams "I need to be under your mouse!!!" I have a laser mouse and although it moves just fine on my desktop, if a pesky crumb makes its way under, my cursor arrow becomes possessed and floats across the screen all by itself. A while back this strange phenomenon happened again. I had to do something about it. I had a cute box that was covered in a toile and I placed the mouse on that. It worked so well with the fabric, but it was too tall. I searched my craft room for a solution, when VOILA!!! I grabbed an unused frame and some fabric to match my desk, covered the backing with a scrap of white fabric and then the gold fabric...this is what happened. Finally, something that looked like it should belong to me. Simple. I love seasonal decorations and I switch out the fabric as the season calls. I can't wait to put my tea-dyed 4th of July fabric in next. This works for me. My mouse won't mysteriously float across the screen again!

Cute idea!!! I am going to copy. I have Waverly Vintage Rose Fabric in my craft room and I am going to use some of that fabric to match!! I have been using the Gateway black and white cow spot one that came with my computer 6 years ago...it is filthy!!!

This is a really neat idea! Might help my kids to keep the mouse in one area, learn how to pick it up and move it around better, too! ;)

You are so much more crafty than I am!! I love the idea!! If I was more motivated I might try the same thing...but I'm not...so I won't! :)

Shannon said...

OMGoodness! What a cute idea! I love crafty stuff!!!

Sandra said...

That's a great idea. YOu could even do different fabrics and designs and just switch them out whenever you felt like it.

Thanks for sharing, I think I'm definitely doing this, I don't like my mousepad LOL

What a great idea! My mouse pad is looking a little pathetic these days...maybe it's time for a change!

Very creative, and you used something that even someone like me can figure out...

Peach said...

Cool, cool idea! I love the idea of being able to change it seasonally and that it looks almost . . . elegant, if you can describe a mouse pad as such.
