Happy New Year 2009........

wishing all my readers their deepest desires found in the NEW YEAR.....and piles of UFO knitting projects becoming FO garments and accessories!

This was a tough year, and unusual year for most if NOT ALL.......the market crashing, jobs lost, sky high gasoline prices to low gasoline prices.....lifestyles changed......and although difficult to fathom and even harder to come to grips with on a short term basis....I can't help but, believe with UPHEAVAL, comes CHANGE for the better. Trust in this....warm your hearts with what TRULY matters this New YEAR......LOVE. Love of family, LOVE of friends, Love just for Love sake!!!

Give a smile to that stranger in the street, they may need it more than you could ever could be the best part of their day....and it will cost you nothing but, to exercise those sagging facial muscles. It is the gift, that can warm the world.........A SMILE!

Help someone that is struggling with their arms full, open a door for someone, thank the cashier clerk that has been on his/ her feet all day........give the bank teller a thank you........remember those that pass through your day, unknown. Shake their hand....wish them well.....make their day special....because they are there to make yours special.

Wishing all my readers a very special New Years Eve filled with the stuff dreams are made of, wrapped up in a silver ribbon.......JUST FOR YOU....

Goodbye 2008, I am so happy to see you go..........and looking forward to what the new year will bring........and hopefully it will have more SMILES THAN TEARS.....for me.

Smiles to you,

Xmas Decorations/ Ornaments on EBAY.....

I have been non stop ebaying for this entire month, unloading my aunt's collection of christmas ornaments, decorations, etc. She was a worse packrat than I was, because many of the ornaments and decorations were never opened.

So please visit my store and check out her Christmas stash and take it off my hands.......and to a new home that will love it as she did.

She even had these darling crocheted angels...
still in their original gift box. Check out the vintage angel with a handpainted wooden face.

On the subject of knitting, nothing new completed or really worked on because of the ebay sales....sorry to say.........I MISS MY KNITTING TIME......and can not wait for the holidays
to be I can be one with my sticks and string....

Not even a knitted gift for anyone this year.........Oh well, this too shall pass.

Wishing you a wonderful fiber day.......

New way to make cash.....and find out about NEW PRODUCTS

I just found this great website that pays you to try out new products, services, and websites. You can make $5 to $75 per survey, and you even get to keep the products you review! The surveys are really easy, and the membership is ABSOLUTELY FREE, so there is NOTHING to lose!

Check it out by clicking HERE!

This appears to be a bonafide site...they do not sell your information.

They actually pay you for each and every survey that you complete. It is not one of those sites that you are entered into a sweepstakes to get paid. Each survey pays you cash, which can go directly into your paypal account. I signed up, because it has a payout per survey completed....without leaving your home.

So far they sent me 5 surveys: $5, $8, $5, $5, $5 = $28 in the last 24 hours...and I just started and that was before I filled out my complete profile, which they paid me an additional $2 for doing.

I need to earn money anyway that I can these days..... I know that with all the financial mess these days, I am not alone in needing to find alternate means of support.

I hope this helps others as well. If you know someone out of work that needs some real income without having to shell out money, in order to obtain the online info....send them this link or direct them to my blog. Most online make money deals, cost money upfront....and I have learned that they DO NOT actually signing up for a few of them. If someone is really employing you, they will not ask you to be paid to be employed!

It makes me crazy that people are using others misfortunes to get rich, by making them pay upfront fees to join these money making sites. They get paid by their clients and by the people they get to do the work for them. They take from both sides. This is PURE GREED!!!

All the mystery shopping sites are like that. You can not make a dime doing mystery shopping unless you own the company. It is only beneficial if you actually need those services, like an oil change or something that they reimburse you for purchasing. Or you were on your way to that location anyway. Otherwise, you will not make a profit. I know I tried.

It just is not right. I am not saying you can pay the mortgage with this deal, but, this will help with the groceries or perhaps give you money to buy some gifts...or you can use this money to make charity gifts that help others eat and give those that are homeless shelter, with NO COST OF MEMBERSHIP or to You, that I have personally seen yet.

Let me know if you try it out....and do not agree with my assessment so far.

Wishing you all a wonderful day,
