Upcycled Letter Rack for EyeglassesI up-cycled my letter rack to keep my eyeglasses on. I think the rack cost me £2.99 on eBay. By the window, I have two wooden panels and I decided to place it here. I just needed one nail to hang it by but the bottom half wasn't stable enough so I used a marble-sized piece of white Sugru to keep it in place.

Heating Pad Saves the Cold Work DayI know a lot of my friends work in a cold, drafty office and they are always "freezing" at work. I have a very simple and heartwarming idea. I keep a heating pad at work and it works wonders for any aches, pains, or simply cold/chilly feet.
