My internet selling class is going very good! My students are now signing up with various selling venues to see how they work and love sharing their work with all of us. I have a lady in class, Lucille's Linens. That is her with her husband, Perry, in the second picture. She is making napkins and other table linens that are really first class with very large napkins that are lined and come in cute containers matching the design of the fabric. She signed up with that site for hand made items, etsy.com. She did a great job and I wish her well. It is hard to sell her linens where she is competing with Chinese made items. So, if any one out there is a lover of cloth napkins, Lucille Linens can help you out. Help our economy and buy local! She also has her own website, Lucille Linens.
Lucille figured out that if a family of four bought mid priced paper napkins and used one per person per meal, one would spend over 500.00 a year on paper napkins! Suddenly, her cloth napkins look like a deal!!....and fewer trees are cut down to support the product. Lucille includes this with each order. It was written by a relative and inspired her to create her napkins.
Evidence of a Good Life

I feel good about the weirdest things.
This week I'm wallowing in the recognition that our worn table napkins validate a fine lifestyle:
not just great dining but a higher level of living.
It started when my husband suggested new napkins.
The dozen white cotton dinner napkins that we use daily are thin and frayed around the edges.
But they're soft, feel good, and proof of thousands of dinners for two.
The same old couple dabbing and wiping until their napkins are threadbare.
You can't replace that.
Worn table napkins are symbolic of: the soft touch of wrinkled hands,
worn elbow patches on a favorite sweater, a book with eared pages, a fireplace stained by smoke.
Testimony of a meaningful life.
New napkins would offer a promise; old ones are evidence.
On my list of wishes for my children: worn napkins.
Marjorie, who is the blond in the first picture, is using Etsy.Com to sell her hand-made cards. She is very talented. I could see her and Lucille getting together selling cards to go with napkins given as gifts! Marjorie is celebrating her Christain faith by creating her cards sharing inspirational messages. heARTforChrist's is the name of her Etsy.Com Store.
There is so much to learn and so little time! I am still adding to my Winchuck Training site with information that I have run across and my friend Jude also is doing a website sharing tips for working on the net. I will be posting the link to her site on Winchuck Training. More later!
