I have one (same color - it's a lovely soft, powdery turquoise) and I absolutely love it. It is very sturdy - you won't believe how heavy it is. It rolls very well, and there's quite a bit of room...

I would be very careful making your own envelope adhesive (anybody watch Seinfeld?)

No kidding, I made some several years ago. It was nasty stuff and developed mold after a few days.
