What's the big deal about Young Living


Hello, everyone!

Welcome to my very first attempt at blogging and displaying my creations for sale. I hope you will visit again and often. I'm new at this, so I hope you will be patient with me. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think so far.

Here are some pictures of the style of apron I am selling. I was inspired to make these by Barbara at www.mommylife.net. (Check out her apron contest.) My apron is made from oilcloth, which makes it waterproof. Just wipe it with a damp rag to clean. (Great for working in the kitchen or when painting or doing other messy projects.) This design is very feminine and flattering to all figures. I am making these available for $32 plus shipping. For orders of 2 or more to the same address I am offering free shipping.

I'll be posting more pictures soon, Lord willing.

Many blessings,

    I go out of town for just a few days and look what happens, Myfriendconnie gets her own place.
    Congratulations in your cottage industry and all your zany, histerical and true stories from your sweet family. I look forward to adding YOU to my favorites!



  7. Blogging and a home-based business?!

    Goodness, gracious…where DO you find the time??

    Cute apron – I’ll take one.

  8. Myfriendconnie says:

    Hi Jeanette!

    OK, I’ll let you in on my time management secret….. I *never* fold underwear. That’s right, I just throw it right in the drawer! That allows me to have loads of free time to make aprons for friends like you! :)

    I’ll get started on your apron right away and let you know the total with shipping and tax. My first customer…I’m so excited!!

  9. I would love to have one, it is lovely! I came over from Mommy Life. How much are you selling them for?

  10. Looks like my link didn’t work, trying again.

  11. Myfriendconnie says:

    Hi Yvonne,

    I’m glad you came by! I am selling these for $32 plus shipping (and tax if you are in TX.) If you email me your address I will let you know the shipping charge and send you an invoice. My email is connielhughes@msn.com.

  12. Cassie Ohlhausen says:

    An Apron….HMMM…..Oh! to wear with cute jeans or, to frame on your kitchen wall! My mother had one of these. Cute!!! Just joking. They are fabulous. Looks more like a work of art than a kitchen helper. I love your time saving advise about underwear, if my teens ever pick them up off the floor I will throw them right in the drawers. Good to hear from your world.

  13. Connie, I want one! I can’t officially order til after the 15th when hubby gets paid, but it will be on my “to buy” list!

  14. Headmistress, zookeeper says:

    Linked! That’s purty!!

  15. I love your creation Connie! May all that you do bring glory and honor to God!

    Psalm 90:17
    May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands.

  16. Jennifer Meachem says:

    hey! i said i wanted one! pleeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!

  17. Myfriendconnie says:

    Jennifer and Lauren – I’ll start on your aprons this week. Email me with your addresses and I’ll let you know the tax and shipping costs.

    Cassie and Tonia – Love you girls! Thinking of your mom in an apron working in the kitchen brought back wonderful memories!

    Michele and Headmistress – Thanks for linking! (That’s a hint for you Michele. Snicker, snort!)

  18. I love this apron – and if you ever decide to offer it in fabric that is not oilcloth, I’d love to buy one. I just prefer something that is not so stiff, like a canvas or a cotton.

    Congrats on your site, and best of luck. I’ll check back to see if you expand your stock and designs. I really love the frilly one you have on in the picture on the apron contest site.

  19. Myfriendconnie says:

    Thanks Goslyn,

    I am looking into making the frilly apron to sell, along with some other things. I’ll try to add some more items as I go along.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Connie,
    I love this apron! I looked on Amazon.com to buy this apron, but they were all out- what a find to see that you make them too! :) Well, I’ll be talking to my husband about this. I love, love, LOVE the style of this apron (colors and all)– I featured it (the Amazon version) a few weeks ago on my blog, lamenting that there were no more available.

    I am in Texas, but technically live in China, but since you’d be shipping to Texas do I have to pay tax too? :)

  21. Myfriendconnie says:

    Hi Jess,

    I’m glad you came by. I will have to charge tax when shipping within TX. It is only $2.64 for 1 apron.

    Looks GREAT! Beautiful work.
