Alittle Bit of Alot

I have had a busy couple weeks. I bought carpet tiles for my living room and hallway at my local Habitat Restore. I really like that store for some things. the carpet tiles were bigger than I have seen before, they were 1.75 per tile total for all I bought was 21.50 I thought that was a great deal.

I bought pink spray paint at hte Restore and painted a trash can for my grand daughter's room, We are going to pick out stitckers to put on it from my massive box of scrapbooking stickers.

My ex husband came down last week to visit our grand daughter while he was here he reupolstered my cedar chest. I really like the fabric that was on there looked hand stitched it was the original fabric and the chest is 29 years old, but it was time for it to be redone, it had stains all over it I tried cleaning it, didn't clean,  I put it in the washer that was a bad idea so it is recovered looks very nice though.
He also took the air conditioner out of the living room window and put it in my basement for me(that hting is very heavy needed a dolly) and then he cleaned my window. I really appreciate those things.

I also put a coat of blue paint on the step comming in the side door, it needs another coat. I hung up the 2 sailboat pictures in the entryway. I still need to paint the trim in the entryway. I am very impatient and would love for it to be done Now but with my hip pain I can only do it when they allow me to.
My mother grand daughter and I went to a shoe store 25 minutes from us because they have special shoes extra and triple extra wide. we needed new shoes for school, The woman that helped us measured her feet with her braces on and made sure they fit properly,  Makayla picked out black shoes with pink trim. New Balance They look awesome.

Talking about Ebay I have listed quite a few things which takes alot of time to take the pictures, put them on the computer, load the pictures onto ebay, and  describe all the items. I have also  sold quite a few things on there in the last 2 weeks,  mostly clothes. I have also bought quite a few things clothes for my grand daughter, a book for my son's birthday(which isn't until November) and 2 cross stitches for myself.
I decided to send my grand daughter to a regular public school this year no more blue and white uniforms Yeaaaaaaa. So I needed to buy her some regular clothes. I found a bunch on Ebay that were really cute and half of what I bought still have tags on them. I can't wait to get them.
My mother came by today and had her 2 cute tops and black and pink sparkley skort that Makayla has decided is going to be her first day of school outfit.

I still have quite alot on Ebay I am hoping I need my paypal back up a little for Christmas. But it was nice to have the money in paypal to buy the clothes so I didn't have to spend the cash.
As you can see I have had a busy 2 weeks but I love having accomplished things.
I am hoping not to be gone so long between posts, my hips have been hurting quite alot and it is hard for me to sit.

So until next time God Bless!

Ebay Trials

Well I sold quite a few things on Ebay this week I put all my grand daughters school uniforms on there from last year I had one lady buy 2 pants and 4 skorts. I had another person buy a school skort, and another buy  dress. I was pretty happy, I am saving up my paypal money to buy things for Christmas liek I did last year.
Well today I get a email that the person who bought the 6 uniforms her bank cancelled her payment to me I was very upset. I had a 155.00 diamond ring get lost in the mail, I was so upset I went tothe post office 5 times, called the post office they couldn't find it I insured it and added a trackign number, even with that they couldn't find it. This happened 2 months ago. 
paypal decided to refund the buyers money from my account which I didn't think was fair becase she got her money but I didn't have the ring. Paypal and ebay knew I sent by the trackign number i produced, but they still said screw the seller. Me! Fortunetly a older lady finally received the ring 2 1/2 weeks after I mailed it and sent it back to me. 
So needless to say I am very upset about this situation. I called paypal they basically said your screwed because I didn't add a tracking number this time. Didn't help me with the ring so I figured why bother? 
They say without one they can't prove i sent it. I have a 100% feedback they should know I sent it. 
Ebay won't let me open a case because they got the original transaction that the person paid but it doesn't show that the payment was stopped only paypal has that. I really hope I am not out more money.
I think that ebay needs to find a better system to help protect the seller too. I do not think it is fair that if something happens not the sellers fault that the seller always get penalized.  But it is what it is. Hopefully the account with the buyer will get worked out and they will take the hold off my paypal.
Has anyone else ever had problems with ebay or paypal?
Take care all!

2 Small Projects

Hi everyone- I thought I would share with you 2 small projects I did. After the floors were done I painted the cold air return covers They were white and looked really bad with new floors. I spray painted them brown. Here is a before picture(white) and a after picture (brown) 

As you can see the white trim now to be painted. I will get to that in the next couple weeks. I have a really hard time getting down and up on the floor and can't sit very long once I am down.
I also did another small project today I had a blahh plain white wall so I decided to put up a series of computer generated pictures I had of Jesus with babies and children. They were made a few years ago for me I framed each of them in a black frame. I think they purked up the wall very well.
Not big projects but sprused up the house some.
Sorry for the short length of this blog tonight I am hoping the next one will be longer.
God Bless Everyone and Good Night!
