Well I took a longer than expected break from blogging over the Christmas period. That was not my intention but dealing with cold snowy, weather, Christmas preparations and having the farm store open for some reason seemed to eat into my blogging time. Can’t think why!
It was nice having the farm store open for December, we had some great customers and hope to see them back again during the year. Hats off to those customers who drove out here in the snow and freezing cold to do their Christmas shopping. We are now trying to decide how to manage the farm store for the coming year, we would love to open it on a regular basis but we need to decide what we would do if we were away at a show at a time when the store is scheduled to be open. It’s quite the puzzle but we will keep working at it. In the meantime I have created an online gallery of our products using a website called Smugmug. The gallery has worked out well for our long distance customers, allowing them to see some of the products we have available without having large picture files clog up their email boxes. I haven’t loaded our rugs to the gallery yet but if you want to take a look you can access the gallery at:
or if you prefer to view the pictures as a slideshow you can go to
I really love my Smugmug account, it’s a great place to load up alpaca pictures for prospective purchases too and of course you can load up personal pictures if you want to. Having the pictures loaded to Smugmug provides reasonably priced safe storage for your photos and you can also create greetings cards using your photos if you want to. If you want to try out Smugmug you can go to www.smugmug.com and sign up for a free 14 day trial, if you decide you really like Smugmug you can purchase access to the site at different levels. When you sign up be sure to add our email address firstname.lastname@example.org in the Email/Coupon box to receive a little discount 🙂
Having had such a break away from blogging there is lots of news to catch up on and so I will get back to more regular updates to the blog.
Happy New Year to all and hope you will be back to catch up with us soon!
