This is my first batch of dying silk roving. I am so pleased with the results. Looks so enchanting. This roving will be perfect to create some fabulous Art batts for spinning amazing yarn.
TFM Women in Ag Launch Events, October 28 and 29, 2017, Austin, TX
October 27, 2017 (AUSTIN, TX) – Texas Farmers’ Market announces the launch of the Texas
Women in Agriculture photo essay project at both markets this weekend. This photography
exhibition celebrates 14 of Texas Farmers’ Market’s female farmers and ranchers.
Oftentimes women are unsung heroes in the world of agriculture. Texas Farmers’ Market is
proud to present this new project promoting the women of our shared Central Texas agriculture
The 2012 Census of Agriculture notes that nearly one million women are working America’s
lands. Together, these women are generating $12.9 billion in annual agricultural sales (source).
In Texas we have over 120,000 female farmers working 43 million acres, making up 33% of
Texas farmers (source), with an $818 million economic impact. Women have deep roots in Texas’
agricultural community and in order to help foster their continued involvement, it is vital to
highlight and celebrate the crucial role they play.
Events take place on Saturday 10/28 from 10am-‐12pm at TFM at Lakeline (11200 Lakeline
Mall Drive Cedar Park, Texas 78613) and on Sunday 10/29 from 11am-‐1pm at TFM at
Mueller (4209 Airport Blvd, Austin, Texas 78722). Photographer Nora Chovanec will be on hand
alongside some of the women featured in the project to discuss the project and their farms.
Prints of the images are included in calendars and postcards that will be for sale onsite and
online after the launch. Musicians Christy Hays and Carson McHone will be playing music at the events.
This young lady was one of the crias that I helped bring into this world on my farm. Little did I know how much joy she would bring to the perfect family. I am beyond happy . What a lovely young lady she has become
With the colder weather starting to arrive I grabbed a few of my hand spun Art Yarn Mini Skeins and made me these snugly Slippers.
Perfect . I love all thecolor and texture. 😉👍🏻😍😆
The economic crisis is the sign that the world is changing fast. In 10 years 60% of the current jobs will be replaced by machines.
Safety is an illusion.
But this change is also the greatest opportunity of all times.
Because today a single person has the power to make a difference, to spread their message across the world.
Yes, everyone would like to win easy, to avoid the risk to lose the job, the reputation, the time.
But the magic of happiness lies in the craziness to risk.
You don’t need to wait for permission to live the life that you desire.
You can start today.
You have to take action.
The following steps will help you make a difference in life and put you on the path towards excellence.
1. Be remarkable
In today’s world you need to risk.
Because the truth is that seeking safety is actually the riskiest thing you can do in the current economy.
In the age of information, we live in such a noisy world. You have to be truly remarkable to stand out.
If you fit in, if you are average, if you don’t develop a passion you will be invisible.
And being invisible means you’re doomed to fail.
2. Be crystal clear about what you want
“I want more money” it doesn’t work, it’s too general.
You have to have clarity. Clarity is power.
You have to know exactly what you want. And then your brain knows how to get there.
Your brain, when you condition it, knows exactly how to find a way to get there.
If you don’t know exactly what you want, you’re not going to achieve it.
You can get whatever you want but you have to know what it is.
3. Be curious
Be curios, explore new things, allow the Universe energy to flow. Move into the space of curiosity, which is a joyous state of not knowing.
To be in a state of “allowing”, means to deliberately choose thoughts, words and actions that allow your desires to manifest in your reality.
To make this possible, your thoughts, words and actions must line up with your desires. It is a state of deliberate focus and inspired action.
4. Find your purpose
You have to know your purpose, why you want something.
Because when you set a big goal life will knock you down many times.
That’s when people give up.
But if you have clarity
of values you still understand
why you are there. If you know
your purpose, if you know why you’re doing it then you’ll be able to pick yourself up every single day.
5. Have a massive action plan
You have to have a massive action plan. You have to have enough plans or always invent new others.
Otherwise when you fail the first times you’re going to make excuse why they didn’t work and give up.
The difference that makes the difference
This is best time in history to make a difference. The world is full of opportunities.
You can make a difference. You can inspire millions of people.
The real question is “will you do it?”.
You can win or you can lose. But the good news is that if you lose you can always get up and try again.
Don’t settle for average, don’t settle for the illusion of safety. You’re better than that.
