Well, if you've looked around this site or are a frequent visitor to this blog, you know that I design hand knitting patterns and write stories. But did you know...that I also...have invented...a board game to promote reading.
Unfortunately, after watching the Dragons' Den I learnt that I probably won't become a millionare marketing this game. So... Moving on...
Lately another invention has been purculating in my brain. I'll give it to you for free. Ready? Here goes...
Saw and nail a frame to form a headboard for your bed.
Cover this headboard in a stiff fabric such as denim.
Add pockets to hold items--pen and a notepad; a paperback; glasses and kleenex.
I know. I hear you.
You: What a brilliant idea, Leanne. You've eliminated the need for a nightside table. Everything is in one convenient location. Thank you so much. You're a genius.
Me: You're welcome. Think of me as you grow rich from my idea.
Update: (Tuesday) I just typed 'bed headboard with pockets' into a search engine--and, it turns out I'm not as brilliant as I...um...er...you thought I was. Apparently tons of people had the same idea. I guess that's the thing about good ideas... (They're every where)
