well, I broke down and bought them off their website.  they moved me up to UPS shipping for no charge because I am desperate for them.  I also bought my first item off of Etsy.  I got the cutest idea for one of my swaps as soon as I saw this post, a post (somewhere, not even sure if it was on here), and another one completely unrelated to pincushions.  I'm actually smooshing them into one idea.  Grin  you'll see as soon as my swap is done.  Grin

yeah, I haven't started yet either.  one thing is for sure...no more maxing myself out on large swaps.  2 or 3 TOPS, and then a couple of little ones.  my anxiety is off the charts and I keep getting my sendout dates mixed up.  Undecided  I'm rushing to get one done thinking it's almost time to send, when it's not due for another month and one I don't have much done for is due soon!  gahh!!!  but I am not slacking.  don't let this make you think I'm not going to put my best effort into it.  my OCD won't let me send out something less than perfect.  if I'm not happy with it, I'm afraid my partner won't be happy with it.  so I just work twice as hard.

so glad you like everything.  Smiley  the dark stones are actually hemalyke.  you got some of them and some hematite in the one baggie.  hematite is the natural stone, hemalyke is it's manmade look-a-like.  the manmade ones are the round stones.  all the others are natural.

and here's what I got from perlabella:

first the earrings.  so pretty, so vampy.  Grin


then we have this great bead soup!

I haven't had a chance to separate everything yet, but I do see some fun things in there!

thank you!!!

my Dollar Tree sucks, but since I have my doctor's appointment tomorrow, I'll check out the one near there.  besides, I need more floss.  must...have...more...floss...!!!  I have now become addicted to cross stitching and I found a new sprite I want to put on my hot pad.  Grin

I'm going CRAZY trying to find these jars!  I keep finding different shaped half pint jars in 12 packs.  I can't find these ones anywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just found a set of these at K-mart. One b'day gift for Mum, coming up!

yeah, I was only able to find the pint jars there.  I think they were sold out of the half pints.  Sad

and as far as buying some things at these craft stores goes, if you ever want to buy Swarovski crystals, do NOT buy them from a place like Michaels or A.C. Moore.  they charge way too much for too little.  get them from somewhere online like Fire Mountain Gems.
I so would but, I do not have a credit card or a bank account. We had to close our bank account because of someone writing checks on it from the bank and I wont set up another one till that all gets fixed. Which means I buy them from Hobby Lobby because instead of paying 7.99 from Michaels  I pay 5.99 for the same thing. Which is only 2 bucks but hey it is 2 bucks lol.

you could probably use those gift cards that you find at banks.  they work like credit cards, so I don't see why they wouldn't work if you really wanted to.

I just remember needing light rose crystals, so when I saw them at Michaels, I figured I would grab them.  but when I saw it was 2 - 3 dollars more for 2 more crystals than what you get from FMG, I changed my mind.  I made something else.

plus, the more you buy, the more you save.  Grin  I saved about $30 on my last order.  only paid $50 instead of $80.
They charge you 4 dollars a month or more. I have one and it takes more money in those hidden fees then I would like to spend. I like those visa gift cards that don't have those crazy hidden fees but, I can't find them anymore.

really?Huh?  as far as I know, that's [Visa gift cards] the only kind my bank has.  I had one card for like...3 months without spending anything on it and the amount never changed.  that sounds like a crappy deal.  Sad
