Recycle and Win

I have posted new information on my website about a promotion that I am starting to encourage recycling; you can win a gift.

There are some feed bags that are more popular than other bags such as the Tucker Goat Feed Bags that qualify to win a gift. For every 10 Tucker Goat Feed Bags that you recycle with me you will receive one of the totes I make from those bags. See the tote in my Etsy Store Here: Maggie’s Etsy Shop Goat Feed Tote

 The feed bags must be empty with no animal excrement or mold inside or outside of the bag. 


 If you have other feed bags or coffee bags that you want to recycle, contact me to see if they qualify for any similar chance to win a tote, or if you want to have a tote made contact me for a price, if you want to make your own I also sell pattern tutorials in my Craftsy Tutorial Shop

ALSO I do other sewing for a fee:

Meal in a Dip

You can have your dip and feel good about eating it too. This recipe that I engineered today Is so delicious and satisfying it will be a hit at any gathering. You don’t need to mention that it’s non-dairy, no cholesterol, low fat, and your vegan friends can eat it too. I ate it as a dip with my favorite chip as pictured below but it could also be a creamy salad dressing or even a topping on a baked potato, or on beans or even on your favorite soup. You will see by the recipe that this meal in a dip has protein and vegetables!

Update on Calorie Count links in previous post

UPDATE: 3-11-17 – The CalorieCount links mentioned in this article Eating Our Way to Good Health  will be removed soon because Calorie Count is shutting down their website. I am in the process of following their procedure to export all my records so that I can transfer to another program they recommended. I have been a Calorie Count member for over 10 years and I have many recipes that I developed over the years that are stored so I will be very anxious to see this export data when they send me the link to access it.
