Now, on the eating front! Several people at church this morning remarked about my weight loss. It is all from the lack of sugar and wheat in my diet! I am still trying to stick with the Trim Healthy Mama plan - mostly S plan - because of my sugars being so out of whack. I baked the Chocolate Chip Cookies the other night and they were a big hit. I believe I have posted the recipe in a previous blogpost. If not, I will post it in the next one. Last night, we had Big Mac's THM style. It is called Big Mac In A Bowl! It is a bowl of lettuce, hamburger with cheese, tomato, onion, pickle (I left this out) topped with Thousand Island Dressing! It was really good. Grace and I were the only ones who had it in a bowl. Gene and Ben ate theirs on a bun.
In shop news, I have a new goal of 211 views/day. I did a numbers analysis on my shop, because, as I learned in sales, numbers never lie. It is true, but you have to have accurate numbers! So, after 4 years of my shop, I have some pretty accurate numbers to deal with. Anyway, to reach my goal of $1500/month in sales, I need 211 views. If you are interested in the formula, you can email me for the details. So, on to the task of increasing views! How? More frequent social networking! I am actually toying with the idea of a regular podcast.
I have taken a few classes on spinning different types of yarns from Ashley @ Neauveau Fiber Arts. She has a lot of YouTube videos, but she also has an ETSY shop where she sells various video courses. I have bought just about all of them! So, I have spun 3 different types of yarn as you can see below. The blue one is a mohair wrapped wool yarn. The red/green one is a supercoil, which I learned from Jace Boggs' book, Spin Art. And the funky green/orange one is called Root Yarn Spinning. It reminds me of Jamaican hair!
I can't wait to spin this. I believe it will be something I love or hate the process of spinning it. Hoping for love! So many ways to spin yarn! Love learning the new techniques. I am so glad I invested in the Ashford Country Spinner. It makes all of this possible!
Until next time...
God Bless You!
