Why buy bread at the store when you can easily make your own?
We asked many men and women this question. The number one answer:
“I don’t make bread because it’s too messy. ”
We have a solution for you: Roul’Pat. Roul’Pat is a genuinely non-stick countertop workstation mat. It is perfect for preparing bread or cookie dough as well as working with sugar art, chocolate, and candy-making projects.
We tested the large size mat. We highly recommend it. The more space, the better, when baking. We used Hodgson Mill’s Honey Whole Weat Bread Mix. The bread was delicious. But the best part? It was easy to make!
In fact, you can even use this great mat for other sticky projects, such as working with glue.
This mat is made in France. It is high-quality and will last for years to come.

For birders and field journalists, writing in the rain has always been a challenge – until now. National Geographic carries an all All-Weather Birder’s Journal. It’s made of rain-resistant paper and comes in a convenient carrying case.
We tested it and found that when rain lands on the pages, it beads up. You can easily brush it off. But if you leave it there, the paper is thick enough to retain its original composition and will not turn into a wet paper rag.
The journal works best with a pencil, though a special pen is also available.

In looking for an ideal travel clock, we looked for three specific qualities: that it would be easy to pack, a loud alarm, and ease of use. THECLOCK will fit in the palm of your hand, closes flat, is simple to use, and has an alarm that will wake up heavy sleepers and those hard of hearing. This clock has all the features we need to get sound sleep and a resounding wakeup. By far, the best feature of this clock is the volume at which the alarm rings. You will not sleep through this alarm!

Many people are looking for a good night sleep. A comfortable bed, a cozy blanket, and luxurious sheets. The right set of sheets can make a good night sleep very good. But if you are going to get a great night sleep, you need the pillow that is right for you.
We recently discovered a pillow company that makes custom fit pillows for your sleeping needs. It’s called The Pillow Bar.
A few years ago, Merrimac Dillon was looking for the perfect pillow. Many of the pillows she tried, the supposedly feather pillows, were filled with pokey feathers, not soft angelic down.
In her quest for the perfect pillow, she took to making several prototypes. And thus, The Pillow Bar was born. The Pillow Bar makes custom pillows filled with the highest-quality, most angelic down you can find. We tried them and can certainly say, they make you sleep like an angel.
The Dr. Mary Side Sleeper Pillows are uniquely shaped to give you ergonomic sleeping comfort. it was designed by a Chiropractor specifically for dedicated side sleepers with neck and shoulder pain. We have found that they make a great companion for sleeping and they also make great prop-up pillows.
Each pillow is custom-designed and measured to fit your body just right. It comes with a beautifully embroidered pillowcase to make it intimately personal. The Dr. Mary Side Sleeper Pillow is also available in a smaller-sized travel version, the Jetsetter.
