Thanks for all of my followers!

I really enjoy sharing my life with you. Sometimes I am gone a few days but, I am following all of you and enjoying every minute of it. Sometimes I get carried away, like last evening. I am in the etsy twitter team as both frstyfrolk Vintage and ByLightOfMoon Handmade and I click on one site that takes me to another site and then I may end up on flicker and get completely carried away looking at so many fine hand-made goodies and just inspirational things here and there. So many fun sites to join and share my findings too.

I like to make a display every time I go thrifting, estate sales, auctions and just see all I got in great deals or sometimes just what I think I have to have for abit until I can get it listed for sale on etsy or if not twenty years vintage then I list to Bonanzle or ebay. I like to think I am phasing out ebay since the fees have gone so high and I don't list as high to make those kinds of profits to let them fall into.

I did not go thrifting this week, but I did hit Hobby Lobby and Hancock Fabrics with their great sales. I don't think I paid full price for anything. Well, I did go thrifting earlier though and got some fabulous clothing on the 75% off sale( white Tags) that was beautiful fabric or had awesome buttons. When I took the sale tag off one pretty pink dress with white lace, I about fell out of my chair that it has a NEIMAN MARCUS label. Whooo Hoo, what a deal at $1.98! I also found an awesome dress of green velvet and satin that looked like a bridesmade dress. I may try to sell it as the dress it is and if no one buys, then I have fabulous materials and buttons to no end to have to work my mixed media art with.

What surprises have I found this week! I also got many items at Hancock's Fabric that I need at 30,40,and 50% off. I got a couple of acrylic cutting templets, cutter blades, and Olfa mat along with several new Gutermann threads ( another story about Emma getting into my sewing basket with the cool threads I got at a flea market in North Carolina and chewed four new spools up. New Thread also!) I also got new material (5 kinds) and just many fun things to work with. I need to go back and get an OTT Lamp while they are on sale, I hope, the sale ends today.

Now, to start getting photos taken and listings done so I can sit make and do some much needed art. I yearn to make a couple of items in mind and they may turn out awful but I have to try. So, Have an awesome Sunday and get to Hancock's if you can, their warehouse sale. Maybe if I go back today and can find something to use my coupon on.

you did really well, Cyndi, isn't it a good feeling?...I haven't been able to go out estate sale shopping lately as our $$ has been so tight but look forward to again soon...

I know about the budgets Dani. I finally settled my disability appeal claim with pennies I was due buth the ERISA LAW prevented me from more. Anyway, I need to save for retirement lake property or we will never see it. But, I made a few shopping trips and now they are over.

I did go back to Hancocks and got the Ott Lamp at Michaels I was looking for. It was not on sale at Handcocks, and I fot 50% off at Michaels. I vow: LAST TRIP!
