DIY No-Sew Fabric Kindle Cover

So my grandma got a Kindle a while back and she asked me to set it up for her. I did so but while I did that I also downloaded 50 Shades of Grey the trilogy, The Hunger Games Trilogy, Jenny Lawson's, Let's Pretend This Never Happened. I read them all in less than three weeks. I had borrowed her kindle for almost a month and I knew I had to return. Finally, I handed it over. I was sad like a whole new world just opened up and I missed it. Sounds so silly, right? Well I just couldn't wait anymore I bought myself one! The first book I downloaded was The Perks of Being a Wildflower, which I haven't even read yet. I have been carrying this kindle with me everywhere hoping for a few moments to start. I was worried about carrying it in my purse and getting scratched, so I decided to make a cover. I had picked up some fabric from a local whole seller on Harwin. I honestly didn't even measure the fabric. I just cut out a large square enough to wrap the kindle twice like wrapping a present. I had plenty of hot glue and I cut the flaps of a cardboard box to make it a bit sturdier. Below are the pictures on how I did it. It's not perfect by any means but I did make it in less than twenty minutes and it fits perfect.

Like I said I know it is not perfect but it is perfect for me right now and it was way less expensive than  buying a cover. I am sure this method could work for any notebook or e-reader. I really want to find an anchor charm to add to this but I can not find one anywhere, can you help?

Can I have a do over?

So it has been almost seven months since my last post. I am so ashamed. I have actually taking so many pictures in the last seven months and created and made some awesome new things. I honestly have not had more than a few minutes to sit and write my blog. I have tried to make time but it seemed impossible. Well I am tired of not writing and I want to get back at it. I love writing and I love creating new dishes. So while this has been a blog all over the place it will remain that but now food will make the majority of posts. I will keep up with some diy projects but mostly food. I have started working for the Farmer's Market for Chef Roy. I am so anxious and excited for this new opportunity. We are at the Urban Harvest Farmers Market in Houston. I am so overly happy to work with a chef and learn the ends and outs of the organic market. I want to experience all the fresh produce. What's even better is the vegan bread. Meat that is organic also. I am so in awe of all the variations I have seen so far. At our both we specifically sale kale. We have this amazing kale salad. We have a poached egg over kale salad with sticks of grilled to perfection toast. I enjoyed this for breakfast today. Let me tell you what it was incredible! I am not a big eggs over easy person so I was not sure how I would feel about the poached egg but OMG it was the best thing ever!! The smooth silky yolk ran over the kale and gave it this extra dressing and the toast dipped in the yolk..Heavenly!! My mouth was very pleased. We also sell a Croquet Mousier but more on that next week since I have not tried it yet. I look forward to reconnecting to everyone who follows my blog and I am ready to show you guys my new experiences.
