I scored this freebie recently, and it’s still going on! I picked up this deal for the Mr. and he wears then when he goes running. He says they wear well (I don’t wear contacts or glass other than for computer work, so I can’t personally vouch, but I’ll trust his opinion). Waldo is offering 10 free pairs of contacts- all you pay is $2.95 for shipping and Waldo delivers in 2-3 days. (which is one hell of a deal).
So, check it out, if you love your freebie Waldo contact lenses and you want to order more:
A subscription is for 6 boxes every 3 months with FREE Shipping.
Waldo delivers lenses to you as you need them. Each box of 30 lenses will cost $18, with free shipping.
Modify, pause or cancel anytime, it’s no commitment and hassle-free. Stick to quarterly deliveries or tailor your schedule to suit you.
It’s Friday- Time for some awesome Freebies and Deals! As the stay at home orders in various areas are relaxed, remember to continue to be kind. And please wear a mask, wash your hands, and use common sense!
It’s Friday again, but because time is a flat circle these days, that doesn’t mean much for most of us. What it does mean is that it’s time for a round-up of the most exciting freebies and deals the internet has to offer.
I know I usually do these on Friday, but there hasn’t been much in the way of freebies or deals as of late. Also, distance learning is a lot of work and I’m too tired after a day of a long day of trying to get kids to watch Zoom meetings, do worksheets, and all of the other “fun” stuff that we have to do.
There are a lot of patterns and videos floating around the internet for non-medical personnel to make their own masks to keep safe in public when we have to go out for necessities.
These masks don’t filter all dangerous pathogens, but they are a good way to remind ourselves not to touch our faces, and keep our germs to ourselves.
MyBluprint has patterns and info here. There are several options/patterns, including a pattern for those who cannot or do not sew. MyBluprint is also hooking us up and staving off boredom by extending their FREE online crafting classes until 4/16/2020.
It’s a great way to learn some new crafts, or just watch the videos and plan for later.
I’ve been making masks for family and friends who are essential employees, you can see some of the pics of me making silly faces and modeling a couple different ones here on Instagram. *Warning*- Quarantine hair in the pics.
I used the pattern from Kaiser Permanente, which you can see here. There is a printable pattern on page 11 of the PDF.
Here are a few helpful hints that I’ve discovered in making over 20 masks this week:
Make a few masks per person. They need to be washed after each wearing in hot water.
If you don’t have any fabric in your home, you can use cotton bandanas, old sheets or pillowcases. The fabric needs to be tightly woven like cotton pillowcase fabric. Avoid sheer and or gauzy fabric.
Elastic is very hard to find these days, so I used new elastic hair ties, like these in the kids masks (I made the ear loop masks for them). I got hair ties at Dollar Tree (some Dollar Tree locations have precut quilters cotton fabric too). The majority of the masks I made have ties and are for adults. We are keeping the kids out of public as much as possible.
If you want to make the masks a little more protective put a layer of shop towel or interfacing between the layers of mask. I couldn’t find either at the time, so I skipped this.
I’d love to see what your DIY masks look like! Leave a comment. If you need masks but don’t sew, there are a lot of local seamtresses and costumers that are out of work right now who are making masks to help pay their bills.
