Make one of these coffee cozies for yourself - and when you see how easy it is - make a bunch more as gifts for all your coffee-loving friends and family members!

What a great way to use up the scraps of fabric you have left over from other sewing projects!

What I love about some of these coffee cozies is they are reversible — use a different fabric for each side, and it's like you have two separate handmade coffee cozies.

As CraftyStaci said in her blog post: you can't throw a rock, and not hit a tutorial for a coffee cup sleeve out there on the web.

Click the links below for your free coffee cozy pattern - choose from reversible, not reversible, buttons, Velcro, skinny, wide, knitted or crochet!

QUICK FREEBIE TIP:
Have realistic expectations: While I try very hard to only provide links to legitimate offers, sometimes the freebies still don't arrive. This could be because the company did not having a large enough supply to cover the response they got. It is also possible that a spammer has set up a site to gather email addresses (another important reason to use an alternate email account) and never intended to send you a freebie at all. Be aware that this can happen and although I do my best to avoid such sites, it is a part of getting freebies over the Internet. Click for more quick freebie tips

Do you get the flu shot every year? Well now you can get a freebie for doing so!

If you have health insurance, your flu shot is more than likely 100% covered — so you could just head to your primary care physician’s office and get it there.

But retailers are getting creative to encourage more customers to come to their store to get flu shots.

OK, does it bother anyone that now they are paying you to get your flu shot?

No? Then grab your freebie!

How Can They afford to Do this? Flu vaccinations are very profitable for both drug makers and drugstores. Plus an increase in flu shot customers, means an increase in shoppers, who are especially likely to browse the aisles and buy stuff when they are given a coupon for discounted merchandise.


 • Publix Pharmacy: Free $10 gift card with a flu vaccination

 • Target: Free $5 coupon with flu shot at CVS pharmacy or MinuteClinic locations.

 • CVS Pharmacy: Freestanding CVS locations offer shoppers 20% off up to $50 worth of non-pharmacy purchases when they get their flu shots.

 • Jewl-Osco Pharmacy: Save 10% on your next shopping purchase when you get a flu shot.

 • Safeway and Albertson's: Get 10% off your grocery bill when you come in to get a flu shot.

 • Giant Food store: Get a $30 coupon savings book.

Or help others!

 • Kroger/Mariano's Pharmacy: Get a shot at their pharmacy and Kroger will donate $0.09 to Feeding America. $1.00 helps provide 11 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of its member food banks.

 • Walgreen's: For every immunization administered, Walgreens will donate $0.22 to the United Nations Foundation, up to a maximum donation of $2,000,000.


NOTE: Just sharing this info - not saying you should get the flu shot. My son and grandson had violent reactions to shots, and both their doctor and the Ministry of Health agree they should no longer be vaccinated.
You have your thoughts about vaccines and your family. I have mine.

Sheffield Style with Custom Banding, by CurtainsByJoanne
A window valance is a form of window treatment that covers the uppermost part of the window and can be hung alone or paired with window blinds, or curtains. Valances are a popular decorative choice in concealing drapery hardware. Wikipedia

DID YOU KNOW?
Valance is pronounced by rhyming with balance.

HOW TO MAKE:
To make a valance for your window, start by using a tape measure to measure the width of your window.
If you prefer a gathered valance, then you would multiple by 1.5 to know how much fabric you need.
Your valance should be about 1/4 of the length of your window, or at least 15 inches.

Image: Free Life Learning Magazine preview
A free, web-based source of support and information about interest-based, learner-directed education for all ages (also known as life learning, unschooling, natural learning, and free-range learning).

Life Learning Magazine was founded in 2002, so there are about four hundred articles on this site, and more are being added weekly.

Their goal is to make their complete archive available for free on their website, in addition to all the newly published articles.

They have used the term life learning for many decades to describe personalized, non-coercive, active, interest-led learning from life – for people of all ages.

The term also refers to a form of homeschooling that trusts and respects children, and that avoids the trappings of school; in that context, it is sometimes called unschooling or natural learning.

Life learning children live and learn, with the support of their families, based on their own interests and their own timetables, and without curriculum, tests, or grades

Image: Introducing.... THE GLUE SPONGE!
Wish I could take credit for this great idea for your next cut and paste project!

Cut a new sponge to fit a plastic container (use two sponges if you only have thin sponges), and pour a bottle of school/white glue all over it.

It can take quite a bit of glue to load it up, but once the sponge is saturated with glue, it will last a long time!

Now kids can just tap their shapes and cut-outs on the top of the sponge for a thin, even coat of glue - no more puddles!

I was concerned about the sponge getting icky, but she says she still has the one she made well over a year ago, and the sponge is still intact AND the glue isn't stinky.

To maintain: Add a few spritzes of water before closing it up for the day, and flip the sponge over every so often.

Kid-e Tag Starter Kit
-
Give your little one a gift of safety.

A car seat ID tag adds a layer of protection for every car ride.

If you should ever get into a crash and are unconscious or unresponsive, your little one in the backseat will not be able to give the paramedics or police the information they need.

So it's a good idea to put all this information on the side of your child’s infant seat, convertible seat or even booster seat.

You can simply print it out on a piece of paper, and place it inside a luggage tag.

A picture of your child on the back of the tag really helps emergency personal too!

QUICK FREEBIE TIP:
Reader tip submitted: Not valid in Quebec? Try putting in your postal code, but another province instead of Quebec. It is hit or miss, but she says sometimes she gets the freebie - because the post office sorts by postal code, not province. Let your conscience be your guide on this.
