Spring is on my mind.....

"Prairie" necklace in my Etsy shop.

 "Sophie Roses" bracelet.

As I sit here writing this it's nearly 5:30 pm and it's still light. I think there's only a little over 20 days till daylight savings time starts again. My daffodils are peeking out from the cold ground and so I think this means spring is on it's way! I've not had to do too much complaining, knock on wood, about our weather this winter. It's been very mild. Not to say this couldn't change in the next few weeks but we haven't had any snow to speak of and the temperature only dropped below 20 degrees a couple times so far. Quite a bit of rain as usual but that's normal for the Pacific Northwest. As I'm sure I've stated before, I'm not much of a winter person. I need sunshine and light. So hurry spring!

Apology accepted....

One more "Too Sweet To Eat" pendant in my Etsy shop today!

Floral cube shaped earrings.

More floral cube shaped earrings.

I feel I must give you an update on the Ebay non-paying bidder situation I had last week. All turned out rather well and the person I mistakenly took for a deadbeat turned out to be a very well-paying customer! So, if you happened to have blocked her because of my previous post, please unblock her! She apologized profusely and explained her mistake. It made perfect sense to me and since her Ebay feedback is 100% positive I tend to believe her. She not only paid for the bead set she had bid on but purchased a couple of other finished pieces. I'm a happy girl! Not sure though if I ought to continue to use Ebay as a selling venue. I'll have to think about that some more....

"Cupid's Candy" bead set in my Etsy shop today!

 "My Lucky Stars" multi-strand bracelet

My first Ebay auction in 3 years, "Cupid's Candy", that I first talked about and showed photos of a couple weeks ago, was a disaster! So much for Ebay for now....:-(  I did get a bid. I was so afraid I wouldn't. YAY for me!!!, But, I only had one bidder and that bidder was a NON-PAYING BIDDER!!! Can you believe that? Why do people do that? (to you Beadmakers out there, I'm not going to out the person here but if you are concerned you can go to my ebay, "HIPPKITTYBEADS", and check who the bidder was in case you want to block her.) Sooooo, I'm offering the set in my Etsy shop for the same price as the Ebay starting bid price, which is a super value! As I state in the Etsy listing, if you were to order these beads separately the price would be more than twice what I'm asking here. This is a one-of-a-kind offer though so no future custom orders for this set at this price.
Enjoy your weekend, I will!!!
