I know, I do absolutely understand a flat rate and covering your materials and time, but I was charged $10 for shipping after tax and it was sent with $1.80/stamp. *rolling eyes* I will not order from them again. I didn't know about ordering directly from Dandelyne, but next time... there is a local shop who may be getting them in so thats a good thing! I was in a time crunch (desperate) not to be late for a swap, so I just grabbed them 'cause there were in Canada.

Isn't it just sooo pretty! I adore Tilda fabrics so much!! I'm going to use these fabrics for a swap I'm in and hopefully a lot of other projects as it's a HUGE bundle.. *Blush* I need to put myself on a serious fabric diet and actually stick to it...

*** But just how much patience before you earn a sainthood badge I wonder? The other day I listed a handful of my daughters video games on Kijiji, and Oh. My. Lord. I honestly don't know how people do this... it is beyond frustrating dealing with people with no manners,... Continue reading

**** So often I see people copy others, and honestly, with handmade, it's all been done before, in one way or another. We are ALL inspired to create by others, but what gets me is when people copy to the *exact* letter... nothing is changed, nothing is done to perhaps... Continue reading

I noticed that one of my items at Loblaws scanned in incorrectly yesterday and was able to use the "Scanning Code of Practice" to get the item free. It was a pkg of mini muffins that scanned in at the wrong price. I knew they were on sale so when... Continue reading

*** After a handful of X-rays and a CT scan (CT scan 'cause he thought it was broken in a part of my hand the x-rays didn't show) the verdict is: not broken! Just very swollen, bruised and severely sprained like my right wrist last time, actually I think this... Continue reading

Yesterday I tripped, twice. This time I landed on my hands and not my face. Now i'm debating on which one is preferable!? However, my left wrist isn't good at all, and i'm thinking it *may* be broken. It's way puffier and hurts maybe more than my right wrist did... Continue reading
