Does anyone else have a camera that has PMS days? I swear my camera just doesn't feel like taking good pictures some days. Today, the camera doesn't want to get that green right on this picture ...
But anyway, here's the red geranium candle mat so far. I get myself into so much work sometimes because I was just going to put two geranium flowers on the mat, but then I thought it would probably look nicer to have three flowers. Now, I've lots more little flowers to cut out. I always intend to make an easy, simple design, but it ALWAYS grows into details details details. It's going to look nice though, so I will put up with calloused fingers just because it gives me satisfaction seeing the finished product.
So, last night, I had a big battle with Ebay. The strawberry candle mat that I had listed last week was ending last night. It had bids on it with lots of people "watching" it, so I knew that it would end at a pretty decent price. However, two hours before my auction ended, Ebay took it off, cancelled it, made it completely disappear, taking the bids and *Poof* it was gone.
The reason: They didn't like my wording. Two sentences apparently are against the law ....Ebay Law, that is ... "Ebay is forcing me to accept only Paypal payments. If you have a problem with that, please let me know."
I was told that I'm not allowed to discourage customers from paying with Paypal, therefore they removed my listing.
Oh well, ya can't fight their laws so I have to obey. But, for those future customers that don't know, I will accept money orders or personal checks. I had a few customers tell me that they've had issues with Paypal doing naughty things with their money so they only use it if they have to. Do I tell these customers, "sorry, I can't take your money"? No, I will not turn paying customers away from a sale.
So, I've had to relist the auction and it's a shame.
I'm not going to dwell though. Last night, I was furious that they did that to me, but now, it's like my husband said....Ebay is allowed to make whatever rules they wish and I have a choice of either not selling or obeying the rules.
I shall obey the rules.
To my customers who had bids on that auction, I'm so sorry for the inconvenience and hope that you'll try again on the relisted auction.
Happy day everyone! Our grandson is visiting with me for the day, so it's more likely that I will be playing today instead of sewing!
