t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
Pebbles in my Pocket
I had the opportunity to meet with Brenda, the owner of Pebbles in my Pocket. This is a local chain of scrapbooking stores. Brenda was way ahead of her time in starting this store. She began 16 years ago, long before scrapbooking and crafting is what it is today. In fact my neighbor (her sister-in-law) says they laughed at her for the idea. Guess who's laughing now!
Brenda was intrigued by Cap Trappers. I think she feels the will be a good fit in her stores. I gave her 10 or so to try out in their classrooms to get some feedback. I'm excited to see how scrapbookers feel about Cap Trappers.
I should hear back in a couple weeks. I never have been a sales person. But what is really interesting is, that when I totally believe in something, it doesn't feel like a sales job at all.
