Scroll down for an update...

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.

Today's song

Update: (Tuesday) I just typed 'bed headboard with pockets' into a search engine--and, it turns out I'm not as brilliant as thought I was. Apparently tons of people had the same idea. I guess that's the thing about good ideas... (They're every where)

You may not have been the first to come up with this idea but you may be the one to perfect it. I think that you should build a sample.

: ) Thanks for your vote of confidence, Renee. However, I think that I'm going to pass. You see I have this writing career I'm excited in launching.
