My instructor accepted the late assignment today. He said he doesn't know why I keep having computer issues. If I knew, doesn't he think I would fix it?? Actually, I had a tech friend today make a suggestion I hadn't thought of. He said ma... Read more

I actually DID try to get my econ paper written and turned in. I knew I would be short on time, so I just wrote it in the "virtual blackboard" on the school's website. It ate it. It said I wasn't logged in! AGAIN?!?!? I did email the instru... Read more

Sales were a little low, but I expected that with having to leave early. The picnic was fun, but we found a hole in my expensive festival tent. It was there when we set it up, so it's pretty certain that hubs and son caused it by not putting it ... Read more

Some older woman at the farmer's market today had the NERVE to look at my towels and LOUDLY announce "what a ripoff, I make nicer ones with towels I buy for a dollar twenty nine at Costco." People stopped and were staring. I looked her rig... Read more

Not that it will help anything, other than the week nearly being over. Which I desperately need! It's been another horrid, busy, hectic, nothing really going my way week. I'm totally ready for it to be done. Of course, it's just going to le... Read more

I got accepted for the baby expo on Sept. 9, so I have to get in high gear on production. So, I went this morning and got materials to make baby bibs. I'm embroidering cute designs on the front, backing them with a plain fabric and putting... Read more

At least for market sales. The weather was horrid hot. Son actually showed up and helped pack at the end and went shopping with me in green bay! We accomplished quite a bit, so I'm pretty happy with that. We got towels, so I can embroider a... Read more

I'm really hoping tomorrow doesn't stink for market. I did some more custom pieces, which I may or may not end up getting paid for. Sigh. It is what it is. On the bright side, the custom order I shipped last week WAS liked, more or less. T... Read more

I put in a long day at the shop, 730 this morning until 630 tonight. I got some of my homework done, did a small batch of towels (oh crap, I forgot to go to the store and buy more white towels to do tomorrow. I guess I'd better do that in the mo... Read more

Right this second, it feels like I'm losing the battle on all fronts. But that's ok. I can feel that way for a minute, all I need to do is breathe until the feeling lets up enough to think rationally. I'm not losing the battle, I may not be... Read more

Since I've lost so many sales opportunities to lousy weather this summer, I've got to find a way to get sales up. So, I caved and agreed to go to a market out of my county. It's another that I was invited to last year and just couldn't do. I'm g... Read more
