This is my little weekly post called Treasure Box, where I share photos and links to interesting finds I have come across as I surf, just bits and pieces that catch my attention. You might find them fun too …
Find 1 … I found a lovely presentation idea on decor8 this week; it is a suggestion on how to package your business cards, if you work in the design/craft world. Slip your business card into a little vellum envelope and decorate it with tape, string, pretty bits and pieces. More examples on the decor8 blog …

Find 2 … do you have serious athletes in your family? Do they spend time on a bike on main roads? This is a great way of helping to keep them safe … they aren’t the prettiest wristbands on the block, but they give you peace of mind in case your loved one is in an accident and can’t communicate their details to anyone.

Find 3 … love this idea, a ‘pinable’ framed map, and a jar of pushpins. When you take a trip, you ‘pin’ your destination. This is a great way to create a piece of art and a record of your adventures. You could take it one step further and make little flags, on which you could record the date, city name, etc.

Find 4 … this is from a website about future technology and ideas, seems like a fun idea; [text from the website] The new Kitchen Nano Garden serves as an excellent way to grow fresh vegetables right in your kitchen, without the use of pesticides or fertilizers. Just place the Kitchen Nano Garden beside the Kitchen counter and grow your favorite vegetables, herbs and flowers without any hassle. Not only does this hydroponic system provides healthy and chemical-free produce, it as well serves as an education tool for children.

Nano Garden employs LED lighting that promotes plant growth, without the need of sunlight. The water used while cooking or washing the dishes is recycled to provide nutrients to the hydroponics. Taking only a section of the area, this petite kitchen garden serves an excellent way to grow fresh fruits and vegetables.
Find 5 … I so want (someone else) to do this; cupcakes in a jar … what a great way to transport cakes for a picnic! Recipe and instructions here …
