Updates:  I have scheduled a Patriotic Hearts Sale for 8:00 a.m. California time Wednesday, July 22. If the sale goes smoothly, I will have E-Week in Ocrober.

Will your email inbox be flooded with Newsletters?

No, I send out a Newsletter a few days before a sale and another sometime during the sale. That's it.


Requesting Old Patterns

If you wish to request an old design of mine, please email me with your request. I will do my best to bring back your requests in future sale.

Queendom Website’s Own Jargon


MacSoph

MacSoph is my trusty little Apple MacBook computer.

Back in the late 1980’s DH and I had an SE and an English friend named that computer ‘Sophie Enchilada’ a bit of ridiculousness that stuck and our computers have been ‘Soph’ ever since


DH

DH is my 'Dear Husband' who helps me with Mail Jail. He does some of my bookkeeping and he and I drive together to the post office because of parking.


The main thing to know about DH in connection with Queendom Website is the concept of ‘First Thing in the Morning’.


First Thing in the Morning means just that to me: it is the first thing I do in the morning.


DH has a different concept: First Thing in the Morning can often mean before 4:00 in the afternoon. DH isn’t a morning person.


This arises in connection with ‘Mailing Packages First Thing in the Morning’.


How Queendom Website Got its Name

Not long after MacSoph and I started our website, a friend said to me, your website is just like your own little private kingdom.


I replied, “yes, but not a kingdom, it’s a Queendom and I am Queen.”


And that’s why I usually have an abundant number of crowns and Things Royal on Queendom Website.


E-Week

E-Week is my big once-a-year sale usually in mid-October. I have other sales during the year but E-Week is my extravaganza.


E-Week is named after Merchandise Night at seminars. Merchandise Night at seminars is an evening when teachers and other vendors sell their wares for 2 hours or so. Now I have E-Merchandise Week, shortened along the years to 'E-Week'.


Surprise Windows

During E-Week, Early Morning Surprise Windows happen on Saturday morning at 8:00 sharp California Time.


Surprise Windows have special items, often limited in number, for a short period of time. If I do say so, they are a special part of E-Week and they are great fun!


Mail Jail

Mail Jail is the shipping division of my little business and it is the main reason I don’t have things for sale on Queendom Website all the time.


I used to do all my shipping, then I found Jay and he does my shipping now. He is much more efficient than I ever was and I am delighted that he is willing to do it.


Kit Hell

Every needlework teacher knows about Kit Hell. That’s the time before a class when you do nothing but order supplies and then divide them up into kits.


Even though I am retired from travel-teaching, I still have a bit of Kit Hell in my life.


Bead Mania

If you have ever spilled 10,000 seed beads, you will know about Bead Mania.


This is all the Queendom Website Jargon I can think of right now. If I think of more of it, I will post it here.



Queendom Website's Production Team

Queendom Website's staff includes:

Queen (me),

Queen Consort (DH) who helps with bookkeeping and is an occasional staff writer (when I can talk him into it).

and Queendom Website's Faithful Subject, MacSoph (my trusty little MacBook computer).

The First Day of My New Website

You will find a different look, but in reality much the same website as before:

Home Page, News&Views, For Sale, Gallery, Lessons, For Groups and My Book Shelf.

A week ago I started over again on new software. I had planned to spend all of July and August and then I would move toward the end of August.

Life had different plans: I woke up on July 7 and started work. My computer went all wonky from new downloads and when the dust finally cleared, I could no longer publish my existing website.

Immediately I called Apple and a sweet young thing told me 'sorry, no longer possible.' I won't go into the details, but it is finished.

I moved my domain name, www.GayAnnRogers.com and it now opens this site. From now on, this is the only website I will be able to update: I can no longer do anything with my other sites.

This move at this time was totally unexpected, so my website is barely started. I hope you will stay with me and watch as it grows. Eventually everything will be here.

If you have any suggestions for me, do write to me:
