So doing this !!!!! Take an old lotion bottle (this is a Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo bottle) and cut it to fit around an outlet and plug. Select some fabric and Mod Podge it on. Instant electronic device holder, clear counters!
I like this idea. Start the year with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. Then, on New Years Eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year. Good way to keep things in perspective. Good idea for school year, too.
