Bavarian Crochet Caron Lapghan: $37.96
This afghan is crocheted with Caron Simply Soft yarn. As will all home crocheted items, you may find loose ends that have popped out (but will not unravel - weaving in ends was never my strong point), dog hair, &/or MY hair & has been displayed on & off on our sofa pending sale ... but this item will be professionally cleaned before being professionally shipped out to you. Depending on how busy our local cleaners are at time of purchase, it could be anywhere from a day to a week before the item is actually shipped.



Stop explaining yourself to other people. You owe no one any explanation of what you do. Your life is yours, not theirs.

Good afternoon everyone! I apologize for yesterday's short post. I got the item listed for sale & then the page I was editing went blank. If I switched to the HTML tab, the code was there, but when I switched back to Compose, it was blank white again with no cursor or content. The preview showed that the content was there, so after several attempts, I had no choice but to just post it as it was. It seems to be working today though. YAY! We have high winds though & out Internet keeps blinking out, so this 'could' end up shortened due to lack of Internet, but I hope not. So far, so good. Our thoughts today go out to the residents of Canton, TX who had a very rough night last night. A tornado ripped through their town killing some & injuring more. A lot of property was destroyed & many are left nothing. Donations are always welcome if you're in the area. Time, money, food ... whatever you can do, I'm sure they'll be grateful for.

Sometimes a situation you think of as “bad” is actually putting you on a path to the best thing that could possibly happen to you.

Good morning everyone! I'm so glad you're here ... I know I've been on & off with the blog the past couple / few years. I used to blog every single day & then took a long break. Several times I've said I was back but then quickly disappeared again. Hopefully that will change this time & I'll really be back! Over the past 2+ decades I've been a housewife / stay at home mom & have tried many different things to bring in a little money. I've sold Avon, candles, random things on eBay, had a small yarn booth up in town, etc. My most recent income was from online gambling. From January through March I did very well & had a good daily income, but then I think the site decided I had taken enough from them & my luck suddenly took a turn for the worst & I started losing. I gave it 3 separate tries & each one was a failure, so yesterday I cashed out & decided to just stick with what I love most ... crocheting & knitting. I've done the eBay thing, but the fees, photo restrictions, & protecting buyers more than sellers have killed that one. I did the Etsy thing but even though Etsy is a great site, the competition was just too much. I mean, you're selling items on a site where everyone else is selling the exact same items. Someone searching for a crocheted afghan will bring up so many listings that it's like being a grain of sand on the beach hoping that you get noticed. So I decided to just do a stand-alone thing here on Blogger with a little help from facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, & Twitter. There'll be a new item for sale each day along with a lot of other little stuff ... so yes, it's about the marketing & sales, but it's also about blogging & sharing cool Internet stuffs. So enjoy your stay & I hope you come back daily!
