Something New

I'm going to try something different for 2 listings in my Etsy Shop, and I'll also have links on the sidebar too. The listings are "Surprise Packages"!! The prices on the listings are:

1) $2.50 plus $1.50 shipping, for a package worth $5.00 or more
2) $5.00 plus $1.50 shipping, for a package worth $10.00 or more

Here is what could be in the package:
*blank note cards/envelopes
*or coasters
*or an upcycled bag
*or a hand painted ornament
*or scrap booking supplies
*or something I haven't tried yet.
*or any combination of the above.

Please state your favorite color at checkout.
You can make requests, if I have it or can make it - it's yours.
Items will not be like those in the pictures, these are examples only.

Our youngest son had some excitement this week. Logan was taking Diesel Mechanics as a vocational course in school. He is in Grade 11 this year, but has gone as far as he can with the mechanics courses, and is now a Diesel Mechanic Apprentice. That means that he now has to buy a tool box and his own tools. So on Tues. Brad and Logan met the local Snap On dealer to check out tool boxes and Logan bought one!! Very exciting stuff. He had the Snap On dealer deliver it to work, so we went to town today to take some pics of it. I haven't seen it yet and Luke wanted to see some pics of it too.

I think I'm hooked on the auther Kay Hooper. Almost finished the third book in this trilogy she wrote. It's as good as the first two. Still reading the "Stephanie Plum" series too. They are so different I don't have to worry about forgetting what is happening in which book.

Did you have anything exciting happen during the week? Tell us about it.
Please check out the give away on my other blog. The link is on the right at the top.  If anyone is interested in having a give away - I'm looking for items for May and June.
Hope everyone has an awesome Sunday!!

  7. How neat I hope he likes it, and what a great idea on the surprise packages. I did have a good week, I got a new job working at a high school! Very exciting. Thanks for asking.

  8. Audrey, if you haven't already, you really need to listen to at least one Stephanie Plum audio book. The reader does an amazing job with the voices and I think you would be tickled.
