Just a few things....

It's almost been a week since my last entry...hard to believe. What else is that I still don't really have anything to say.

I did find a couple of cool websites this week. One is called Facebook ( which is, for lack of a better phrase, Myspace for adults. I've found a lot of old high school friends on it and some other friends too. I love it. If you decide to sign up make sure you look me up....Lisa Marchand.

Another new site I found, through Viqui, is iGoogle ( which is a great 'homepage'. They have so many different modules, it's amazing. One thing to remember though...if you do like it and love all the goodies, make at least one more 'add page' at the top of the page or it may load waaaaaaaaaay slow!

I got burned on Etsy this week. I had a person make a $51 order and then decide to just not pay for it. I was not me. I'm still not!! Oh well, what can ya do??

I made my first thread items this past week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not really that different from yarn...and here I was so scared to try it...silly me. I made a couple of things for my swap partner at Cmania for the Christmas in July swap so I can't post a pic yet, but I really did like it.

Well, hubby's working overtime, the boys are playing PS2 and 'the girl' is watching tv...guess I'll go do some more crocheting.

Later gaters!!

Sorry about your etsy order. :( I am on the other end of an ebay order. I paid for an item and still haven't recieved it, or any word of it being shipped... Hopefully some more people will come along and order some things. :)

Hey Lisa, Don't let that etsy order get the best of you......they do happen along, just report that to etsy Now and they will be removed from etsy. I too have had a couple of those, but it will happen along..............don't make one happy though.............but just stay at it, the sales that do follow through make it all worth while.................and look at it this way, they did add to you number posted on items sold :)
That does look good to future customers :)
