Tupperware in my studio: part 7

I saved this one for Valentine’s Day because I ❤ my Modular Mates! Let me just say up front that I think they are the best line Tupperware ever invented; followed closely by their Square Rounds. Sorry, there can be no debate. Modular Mates are the whole reason I started selling Tupperware to begin with. And yes, I’m still using most of the Tupperware that I bought way back then, … Continue reading

Tupperware in my studio: part 6

It’s a gimmick, I admit. These little gadgets are the kind of things your Tupperware representative gives away as prizes at Tupperware parties. These are little Tupperware pencil sharpeners, made to look like one of their line of tumblers. I could have found something similar at a local store, and it may have been cheaper, but this just shows how easy it is for me to convince myself to buy … Continue reading

Tupperware in my studio: part 5

When I bought this little piece of Tupperware, it was described as a business card holder. (I’ve also seen them described as recipe card holders, which makes more sense since Tupperware mostly makes food-related items.) Sadly, I was disappointed that, at 4″ wide, it is a little too big to properly hold a 3-1/2″ business card. The cards will always sit at an angle because of where the braces are … Continue reading

Tupperware in my studio: part 4

I have always been drawn to little boxes and bags; maybe it’s because I enjoy organizing things. In any case, I can always find lots of uses for these little Tupperware clamshell boxes. I’m not sure, but they may have been called “Packables.” I like that the lid is permanently attached so I can’t lose it. I have two different sizes, but I know there are other sizes and shapes. … Continue reading

Tupperware in my studio: part 3

I love to use this piece of Tupperware whenever I have to pack up my stuff for a workshop that I am taking. I think it may have originally been called “Lunch ‘N Things.” The largest center section could fit a sandwich and the left hand section would probably fit a juice box. If you’re searching eBay, I’ve seen them described as a “Tupperware sandwich keeper” or a “Tupperware craft … Continue reading

Tupperware in my studio: part 2

This piece of Tupperware is what I use for my cash box when I speak and teach at quilt guilds. It would probably also work well as a small organizing box for when you travel to a workshop. It is a nice, sleek size, just 10-1/2″ by 5-1/2″ by 2-1/2″. It has rounded corners on all sides so it easily slips into an empty space in a bag or suitcase. … Continue reading

Tupperware in my studio: part 1

Many years ago when DD#2 was just an infant, I used to sell Tupperware. I’m still a big fan. Now that we are just a household of two, I don’t need as much Tupperware in my kitchen so it’s an extra bonus that some of it has found its way into my studio. Most people know that I’m also very fond of the color blue. In an effort to minimize … Continue reading

My new blue chair

My new blue chair has arrived! This is one of those ergonomic chairs that lets you adjust everything from the height, the tilt, and the lumbar support. I can’t wait for life to settle down enough for me to put in some serious time getting to know it. While I haven’t been blogging over the last week or so, my thumb has been healing (although it is still very tender), … Continue reading
