About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.

I finally came up with a cool idea for the office contest.  A lot of people like to use small magnets and sometimes we don't have a place to stick them,  so here is a good way to use magnets away from home.  You also re-use stuff like an old sock, Cd case, buttons, cloth, cards, calendar pages, and an old Cd's. This is a creative way to store Sugru,  which is practical.  It is a great emergency product to have on hand,  especially at the office!

Decorate the inside by using a calendar page all the way across the case and cut a hole so the Cd will slip over the knob.
