Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention

Necessity is the mother of invention.

The Ohio Valley Crud ( aka sinus infection) has sent me to bed. It totally sucks. My face feels like it is going to blow off — and I almost wish it would.

Enough whining.

Sitting in bed, I’m getting a crick in my neck using my iPad. I have always wanted one of these cute little lap holder thingies, but I kept procrastinating and now is not the perfect time to work on it.

Looking for one online, I discovered many are filled with micro beads.

Then I remembered my grandson has one of those stretchy, micro bead pillows!

I laid the pillow in my lap.

Then I pressed the tablet into the edge of the pillow, squishing the beads to the back.


This is working great.

When I’m feeling better I will get serious about creating a lap desk and I’ll share it with you. But for now, this is working great.

Be Happy,
