New ATC listed on eBay this evening. Second in a series of flying clocks. I love, love, love the background. Sometimes I use reprints, but this is the real deal. I got to play around with projects all day today, and that always makes me happy.

But God is good, and the universe is fair! It never fails when I have a bad experience, I get an email from a nice person, who is happy with their purchase, the quality of their purchase, and the service they received. Actually, I get 99 of those to every 1 of the bad ones. So there.

I listed this lot of 15 bits 'n pieces tonight on eBay. I have SO many of them, and I must confess I love to look at them. Not in a fiendish, hoardish type of way, but in a I wonder who used to own this kind of way. These are all vintage, and so sparkly. My mind just spins at all the pretty things a person could make. I would actually like to do some small photo frames, but have yet to find any older ones which are suitable.

Here is what Samantha sent me! To say I was overwhelmed would be an understatement. To begin with we have this gorgeous case with faux leather handle. Not just any old wimpy case either, it measures 15 inches across and 10 inches high (too many years of selling online, I always have to measure everything). Actually, the measurements were to give you an idea of how substantial this is. Note the pearl initial ~ a perfect touch.
There was a ton of pink grass inside, and many pastel eggs to hold all the tiny treasures.
A sweet cone made with vintage flocked wallpaper. She also sent me some, and I did not photograph it. But I love it and have never owned any before.
Yummy pastel papers and look at all the girly stickers. Sam knows how much I love K&Company. I will be able to make so many pretty things with these! I am all jazzed about the glitter as I have never used liquid glitter before. Never had a beer or a cup of coffee either, but I digress. I was arriving at Glitter Avenue by way of mixing dry glitter with a bit of Modge Podge, and carefully painting it on. I do drink diet Coke in excess, and get tipsy after three sips of wine, so I'm not prim and proper - coffee and beer just never appealed to me.
Clear stamps, note cards, vintage lace, rosebud trim, metal embellishments (the one at the top left says Mother). Everything presented so perfectly.
Vintage daisies and spools of thread, and she crocheted the little flowers herself.
She made this stand and I love the colors and the style. The candy bar you see is all that remains of the candy. There was a large chocolate covered marshmallow egg, a candy stick, and a package of six eggs with assorted centers, from See's no less.
What wonderful gifts to receive, from a very special lady and a new friend :). Thank you Sam!

Tuition at Christian middle school....$4800 per year
Cost to register for Fall 2008.....$225
Gas to and from school twice per day....constantly rising
Knowing your child is receiving an excellent education in an environment where God's word is the first, last and only word....PRICELESS.

Gotta have candy, some of it fit in this sweet little bunny take-out container. I only wish I'd gone to See's, like Sam did!
I fell in love with this precious soft lamb, and knew she would too. Add a couple of strands of big gaudy costume pearls, and an egg, which when soaked in water is supposed to produce a chick which hatches by itself (reminds me of sea monkeys).
Lastly, a little box filled with vintage jewelry pieces, and that little bag on the right contains vintage rhinestones ~ each one a tiny treasure just waiting to be reborn.
Absent from my photos are a few little plastic eggs, in which I placed embellishments. One egg (the pink one of course) contained a $5 bill so Sam can have a Starbucks on me. Or, she can buy a gallon of gas....I hope she likes her Easter stuff. I so enjoyed putting this together for her. Her friendship has really been a blessing to me these past weeks.

While browsing I saw another customer who seemed to be a beader, as her cart was filled with all kinds of different beads. I asked if she knew if they sold microbeads here. She told me she did not. I asked if she had heard of microbeads, and she replied, "No, and please don't tell me about them because then they will become another thing I have to have!"
So I don't feel so bad, or so alone anymore. I am on creative overload these days, what with swaps and my ATCs and blogging and trying to get a decent etsy shop going, oh...and keeping my eBay customers happy. But I am content and my wonderful husband and son are happy I'm happy.
