Well, sometimes I love ebay, and sometimes not so much. This time I love it! I found my little twin babies for .99. Can you believe no one else bid on them? I was floored, but oh so happy :).
This wallpapered carrier will go to Melanie's store, All My Favorite Things, in Portland......
Really bad photo of a new journal, sorry I uploaded the wrong one and am too lazy to change it.
I'll be making lots of these Christmasy journals, both for Melanie's store and my own on Lollishops....
Collage for lollishops....
Another collage for lollishops...don't you just love polka dots? There's just something so happy about them!
So here's my pet peeve (ok, it's only one of my many pet peeves).
Dh invites me to join him last week for a nice dinner (he's there on business but spouses were invited also). The location was a beautiful lodge up in Washington, and it was so peaceful and just gorgeous. The lobby was outstanding with a huge fireplace, lots of comfy chairs, free coffee, etc. (you get the idea). And the view out the windows, well, it was breathtaking.
So while dh is in his meeting Friday morning I take some mags to go sit in the lobby and just enjoy the ambiance, better than sitting in my room (or so I thought).
I find a comfy chair, pull out a magazine (where women create) and start to read, only the hear the idiot all the way across the lobby (and believe me, it's a big lobby) talking very loudly on his cell phone. Felt like I was sitting right next to him. Now I know it's a public space and all that, but come on people! Whatever happened to courtesy? Can someone please tell me where it's gone? What I did? Got up and walked outside (yes it was a bit chilly) because I was talking with my bff, Melanie, on my cell and didn't want the world to hear, or to disturb anyone.
What I wish I had done? Gotten up, walked over to said idiot, and just stood in front of him until he acknowledged me. Then I wish I would have said this: "I know this is a public space and you have as much right to be here as anyone else, but apparently I'm the only one here with enough guts to come up and ask you to please lower your voice so that everyone here isn't privvy to your conversation, which we really don't want to hear."
Man, I wish I would have done that.....next time I promise I will, and unfortunately I know there will be a next time.
What would you have done?
