I just thought to myself, "Oh fun! I could do my taxes today!"

Is it weird that I love filling out forms? I used to even think that I might enjoy a career in data entry.

But so far, this tax return is not looking so refund-y. Good thing this year is the year I'm going to get rich off of one of my good ideas. I just know it! And with all that money coming in, we won't even need a tax return.

And you know how I know this is the year? I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday (which is my favorite store in the whole wide world) picking up things for my latest awesome idea. When the guy at the checkout asked me what I was doing, I told him my plans and he said, "You have a creative mind. You should start a business."

I would have given him a $20 tip if I could have.

At the risk of you stealing my idea, and then my $$billions$$, I will share my project with you. But believe me, if I see these on Etsy I'm hunting you down!


They are mirrors for hanging on the wall, with pretty fabric around the edges. These ones are going in my living room, but I could make them in any kind of fabric for any kind of room and any kind of taste.

Seriously. Don't steal my idea. I'm not even going to tell you how to make them unless you'll hook me up with a patent attorney for my other awesome idea that I will never leak on the internet.

I'm going to post a poll on the side. Go vote.

You know, if you really want a patent attorney, I can ask my dad who he used to patent his snowshoe designs...

oh, PS - those are cute. I promise I won't steal your idea. Not to sell anyway, but I might try making one myself.

I think those are sooo cute...I would definitely want to buy one...the price I would be willing to pay depends on how large they are...I can't really tell from the picture...maybe post a picture of it hanging on your wall from a distance so I can get some perspective. Anyhow...you are awesome and I think it is a fantastic idea and why not try to make some cash while you are at it!

I've got some extra love for you, my former/fellow/aspiring writer.

I wouldn't steal the idea even if I thought I could pull off craftiness of that caliber.

I'm tempted to steal the idea, but instead I think we might have a shopping trip for supplies in our near future (or your next visit)!!! I'm so not crafty [and really don't enjoy it] but I love the end results!!!
