I'm a little bit country . . .

From Crafts

Actually, I'm a suburbanite, but have a country-ish soul sometimes.  I love red and white gingham check for the summer. 

It's always so much fun to create the party favors for your guests.  You don't have to break your budget if you are willing to do a little work. 

Here is a healthy idea for a Country Wedding or summer theme, cookouts and barbecues and 4th of July parties.
Use red and white gingham food safe wax paper and tie the favors in bundles.  I used
hand roasted mixed nuts, cashews and pecans.  To make your own visit the Examiner
article, Went Nuts on Sunday. 

I also included wax paper bags, but you don't have to, since the paper is food safe.  Or, you can use old-fashioned small paper brown bags.  You can easily add a small paper tag with your thanks and a nice quote on...  Read More

I hate plastic

Eco-Minds


I hate plastic...or as my mother would say 'dislike' plastic.  I have always disliked plastic, when it comes to food and beverages.  I'm one of few in my age bracket that does not have a microwave and if at work and I use the office one, I use glass containers.

When I go to restaurants, I basically judge the venue based on not only their food, but their take-out containers.  I've been known to embarass some if I ask for something simple like foil or bring my own container. 

Why?  I don't know all the scientific reasons there are, and there are many, but I just had the gut instinct that it is not good.  Rather simple for me.  No problem.  But, it's not just plastic with BPA. 

Yet, there is hope by the end of March, the FDA will make a decision on whether to ban BPA in food packaging...  Read More

I Yi Yi Yi

I Yi, Yi, Yi!  Addoway, I like you very much!  What a great song and a perfect complement to the little video I did on our available products on addoway, I like you very much! Great song and perfect for addoway.  I do like addoway very much.  

A lot of customers arrive, thinking I am only selling American products, so wanted to introduce some Latin American products to those folks who cannot get them in their area. 

Little vid set to a fun tune. 


I Yi, Yi, YI!

Adventures of Millie, Super Mom and Online Seller

Episode One of the Adventures of Millie
 
An oxymoronic fictitious reality show.

The adventures of Millie, the Super Mom is a fictitious story of a woman who does too much. She is a mother, works full time (although we do not yet learn of her occupation until episode 3).   We hope she learns to slow down a bit and create the balance of a working woman in these busy times. She knows there is stress and is caught in the middle of the time trap.  

This is the first part in the series of adventures of Millie, her work, family and community as shown through video slides.

I'll walk a mile for you

I'll walk a mile for you and more, literally.  Customer Service is Customer Service.
If it is at all possible, I will go the extra mile.

Late fall last year in 2011, I had my car break down.  Having a vehicle for business is not a luxury.  When the car is out of commission, what does one do?  There was a particular weekend not too long ago, when no one I knew was around.  I had no car, because it was in the shop for a brake job. 

I had some orders come in over the weekend.  Yikes!  What to do?  I walked to a store about a mile away and back to fulfill one order, only to find out they were a few items short of what the client wanted.  So, I went back home and pondered.  The next day, I got a taxi and went to another store. 

Now, you might say that I lost some money on the sales orders.  Well, perhaps.  But, more importantly I...  Read More
