Recycled Produce Bags

I noticed empty mesh produce bags that had held fifty pounds of onions at my co-op pick-up site.

There were three of them, so I converted them into shopping bags for myself.

I knew I would not be carrying fifty pounds of anything, so I was sure they would be strong enough.

Since there was a winter market coming up for the Coppell Farmer’s Market, I decided to ask if they still had space and if my product would be appropriate.

Meanwhile, I started tracking down a supply of bags, just in case.

Usually, I have several projects going on at once and they all take a while to get started.

Not this time!

I paid the application fee, got approval, and have been sewing up bags with colorful webbing handles.

The market is tomorrow.  http://coppellfarmersmarket.org/events/

I also put my fiber art journals down as a product, so I will be taking them as well.

What a quick start!

We will see what happens.

Computer Progress

After a long absence, I returned to my computer lesson today.  I had a long list of questions, two and one-half pages.  I received such excellent help that we actually got through all of them.  I have been working on my music reading products.  Along with that, I am learning how to list them on my web pages.  As I gain more confidence and figure out the most effective way to present them, it is exhilerating to find a way to reach out to more and more people.  An order is emerging in listing the products, pages and links.  It has its own quiet excitement.  It is not as exciting as developing them, but it has its’ own place in the structure of my business.  I like feeling this aspect of my business.
