I've been on a bit of an Etsy bender lately. It all started because of the elephant bracelet. I didn't read the very bold print that said to wait for revised receipt before paying because Etsy was being screwy with the shipping charges. But I like to pay my bills promptly so I placed my order and immediately paid for it using PayPal. Well the actual price was lower than initially calculated so the seller refunded my money and I repaid the correct amount.
Only the way PayPal works is instead of putting a refund back where it got the money (in this case a checking account) it instead leaves it as funds in your PayPal account.
So I figured I should do some more shopping to use up the funds. It almost felt like free money - I suppose there is probably a way to get the money back but Etsy is way more fun.
I have a bit of a thing for sparkle - if the shoes above didn't tip you off. They are like little tiaras for my feet. So the shopping I've been doing has been mostly of the sparkly kind. I've ordered two pairs of earrings, some jade-ite looking elephant charms and some flying swallow charms. I'm going to add them to my "I have no idea what I'm going to do with them" pile.
Which reminds me I still need to work on my to do list for my sidebar. It's a sad state of affairs when you have to add 'create to do list' to your to do list.
I'm not really wild about this but I've started adding a logo to my pictures. I discovered that someone had taken some images from here and posted them on their own blog - I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they are just new to blogging and don't understand the etiquette of not using other's images without getting permission first.
This is my passive-aggressive way of asking that person to remove the pictures - I'm so not a confrontational person.
