One way I found can save me some pocket money is doing online survey. Out of many I have signed up to, only two sites really give me reward points that really can redeem usual products or services. I am not going to disclose the names of those that I found not useful, but some survey companies rewards you chances to their lucky draw or with points that are so little, take you forever to redeem some useful things. By saying useful, I really mean something you are already using in daily life, like Startbucks card, Hertz, Shell car wash, hotel points etc.
Inspired by the book Crafting with Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat, I am using my cat’s hair to try out this interesting needle felting technique. The book is fun to read even though you don’t plan to needle felt anything, it contains step-by-step instructions to projects with various difficulties, like small tote bag, book cover and drawing. Today I am trying out the little puppet that shown in the book cover, took me an hour from start to finish, excluding brushing your cat and collecting the necessary tools. I got my felt needle and some extra cashmere (like the white color) from Etsy.
I have been waiting for Google releasing the official case for Nexus 7 in Canada for months but seems they are not going to sell it here. So my tablet is basically caseless with no protection if I bring it on the go. Those cases selling in Indigo or Chapters for Kindle Fire are actually a good size to the Nexus 7 but comes with a stiff price (like $30) and a not so attractive look.
