Deanne’s Diary…

Change is hard for me. I don’t change my furniture at the house very often. Sometimes when I am home alone at night I leave the lights in the house off except for the knitting lamp next to wear I am sitting. My daughter will walk and call out, “Why are all the lights off?”

I find it comforting to be inside cozy in the dark.  I can walk through the whole house in the dark only occasionally bumping a leg. It’s great. I know where everythings at.

 

The studio is different though, it is always changing and I have to be okay with that. We have to keep up with the technology online and create comfort and ease with our online shopping cart.

Today though when our webmaster clicked a button and switched us to a new online shopping cart I got a scared feeling. There was a tightness in my throat but as soon as the first order came through it went away. Then it just felt like things would be okay.

We have been working on this new cart for months and we still have a lot to learn. As soon as that order came in  through the cart and Megan printed off the shipping label I was exited to go into learning mode. I love learning mode…don’t you?

When you get to the point where you can figure things out on your own by reading and researching. As soon as you get into learning mode you are on your way.

So you’ll notice a difference in our online shopping cart. It is simpler and cleaner looking. Our new check out is all on one page and it works better.  Even though you might have been a customer already, you’ll have to fill out your info again to set up a new account.

There will be a few bugs to work out so if you see a problem or encounter a glitch just email us or call us and we’ll get it fixed. We are working away here every day and will be happy to hear from you. – Deanne

Inspirata from the Blog…

 Bread is part of every culture. It has always been part of mine. I have a big silver bread  pan that my mother used to put dough in rise. She made traditional loaves of bread, with three buns. With the last bits of dough she would make a tiny loaf for me when I was a child; a loaf that could be cut as soon as it came from the oven and loaded with Eversweet Margarine.  There was no butter, except in early summer when it was made fresh on the Cape Shore…read more
