Crocheted Dish Cloths..The New Green?

If you've ever tried a crocheted dish cloth, then you'll agree with my next two words...THEY'RE GREAT!!! If you've never tried one, you must...and once you do, you won't use any other kind of cloth. The unique texture makes them great for scrubbing tough stuck on foods without damaging the surface or finish of your dishes or pans. These cloths are made with the natural fiber, cotton, so they're long lasting and great for the environment because it reduces the need for sponges, paper towels, scouring pads, etc.
There are lots of great dish cloths available on Etsy (MyIssaG's Crochet Shop has a great variety of cloths for dishes and personal bath use as well and in such yummy colors too). The cloths above are available in my Etsy shop...GloriousCrochet.

Prayer Changes Things...

I was raised to believe in God by my parents. They taught me how to read the bible and to pray. When I was around 12, I decided to form a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. But when I became an adult, say around 30, I veered away from that path, because I felt it was too stringent and I was missing out on "the fun". Eventually, I've come back to God and I am reading the bible and living a christian life. There is nothing more comforting and safe than knowing our heavenly Father watches over me and that He actually cares. I could write a book about the incredible things He has done in my life both big and small, but I digress. I just want to say, learn to talk to your heavenly Father, and your life will never, ever be the same.

Have a great day!!!

Roses are...

Roses these days are not just red, but violet, yellow, blue, and the list goes on and on. Here in my new design, I've combined my love of Tunisian crochet and roses to create an heirloom baby blanket for a little girl. I've added cross stitching accents to give the design some depth. I will post the finished afghan when it is done.
Thanks for visiting guys and remember to never stop believing in yourself.

Success in Selling

You know, I take great pain in making sure my products look beautiful so that my customers are happy and in so doing, attract more customers. But according to an expert in on-line selling, the chances of the above booty selling is low. Why? It's the wrong color. I was under the false impression that the more colors and variety you offer in your site, the more sales. But after doing a little bit of research, this is not true. Less (products) really is more (customers). So after doing a little tweaking to my store, no more green booties!!! LOL. I will focus on what customers really want and save the green booties for custom orders. If you have a successful on-line bussiness, let me know what worked (or didn't work) for you. Have a gloriously blessed Mother's Day and a great weekend.
