Daily Prompt: Learning By Doing


Daily Prompt: We Can Be Taught!

Tell us a moment or an incident that you treasure  – not necessarily because it brought you happiness, but because it taught you something about yourself.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LEARNING.

Today I will be doing my second vendor show for Dove Chocolates.
I have yet to have actually seen a real party.
Luckily the company provides virtual trainings that I have repeatedly attended.

Since my sponsor is ill today I am filling in where she was supposed to be today…

It will be hands on experience to see how much of the material I have learned and kept in my brain.

If you are in the Clarksville Area today near exit 4 I will be at the Quality Inn…come and say hello.

Do you like to learn by book or hands on training…
I am learning to love the virtual world trainings as I can do them in my jammies at anytime of day or night.

Daily Prompt: My Goals For Blogging


Daily Prompt: Goals

When you started your blog, did you set any goals?
Have you achieved them?
Have they changed at all?

Thanks for the great idea, Ritu!

When I began my blog sites my goals were simple.

list

  • To get the word out there about the businesses that we have.
  • To have a spot to talk about all of the favorite recipes that I love to create or that I find
  • To start a cookbook
  • To have a spot where I could write and do it on a regular basis as a hobby of sort that was something that I could do anytime of day or night without making noise.
    My other hobbies come with a bit of noise.  A few also come with smells that my hubby can’t tolerate.   It is difficult to crochet late at night due to a light factor.
    I can just come in my office and type with my quiet keyboard and it does not bother him at all unless it is a YouTube day.  Then I just turn off my speakers.
  • To have a spot to create fun creations of recycling items and making them into totally new ones.  Taking something that would have seen the landfill and making it something that is totally different and quite useful in the home.  Making the item so that it is beautiful and does not necessarily look like the original.
  • To have a spot that is quite entertaining and funny.  To share funny moments that I have found either in emails or on the internet (Facebook).

Have I achieved them?
I feel they are there, yet I need to still tweak them and since I am still learning about linking and various other portions of Word Press, I do not get the traffic flow to them that I would like yet.  I consider them still a work in progress.

Have they changed at all?
Oh yes, my blog sites are always being changed and upgraded as I find new ways to do things.  I am still in a learning process so I am certain there will be more changes to come in this coming year.

I have to admit that the Daily Prompt and the A-Z Challenges are two ways that I have been able to blog daily and to learn the changes that are needed to perfect and make my site the way I would like it to look.

Here are what other Daily Prompt writers had to say on the subject this early morning:

Song in my brain today…taking time to realize what is in my blog site too.

Thank you for reading and for your comments.

Tammye Honey,

New Student, Part Two: Baby Blanket


For a student who has never sewn before to finish three projects that she can show her hubby proudly and state “I made these myself” is an accomplishment.

Perhaps it is the way that I teach, perhaps it is my patience, or just the fact that I listen to each student and their needs.

This particular student has jumped in the water instead of taking baby steps.  She is all about the learning and takes every open slot that I have.

Her next project is the baby blanket.  That type of project under other circumstances, I would discourage a new student that is fresh in the water from learning.  She is beginning to do an Olympic course of learning so that she can complete it before this baby is born.

blanket1 blanket 2 blanket 3 blanket4 blanket5 blanket6This plus the curtains is what we achieved in six hours.

Her next session will be to apply the seam binding and then get to the new project that she has already selected which is Nursing Coverings.   Stay tuned for updates on our projects.

Thank you for reading

Basics of Crocheting Class


I wanted to do a Power Point to see if I could start to give instructions and link them on my Word Press Blog so that my students would have a reference point once they were home to look up any questions that they had and were afraid to ask or forgot my number.  This is a test for the future to see if it will work or if I have a lot of bugs to swat out of my path before I perfect my mess.

Just two creative ideas that come complete with the yarn included…
