Catching Up

Here's a card I made while I was playing around with my new Christmas goodies. I love this owl! 

I just spent the last half-hour flipping  through the new issue of Paper Crafts magazine - cute stuff! I signed up for an international subscription back in October, and my first issue was supposed to be the Jan/Feb issue (according to my account info). Unfortunately, my issue never came. This one I actually found in the Carrefour English magazine section - first time I've EVER seen it anywhere in China. I had to pay US $8.50 for my copy, which is 1/3 of what I paid for an entire one year subscription. That really burns me. When I emailed Paper Crafts last week to ask them when I should expect my Jan/Feb issue to arrive, they told me they were sorry my issue didn't come, and that they would extend my subscription by one issue to make up for it. In other words, the subscription I paid for the first week of October won't actually start until the Mar/Apr issue. No mention of just sending me a copy of the Jan/Feb issue I should have received (which is currently in stock in their online store, so it's not like they don't have any more copies). No, I have to wait two more months. Sigh. If I didn't love their magazine so much, I would just ask for my money back.

Okay, rant over! I've been having a blast the last few days figuring out Facebook. I'm so behind the times, lol!  I set up an account right before we came back to China, but I hadn't done anything with it since that initial setup. I'm still learning some of the features, but I'm finding old friends that I haven't seen in ages and having so much fun! It's crazy how small it makes the world.

Card Supplies:

  1. Super cute card! Love the clean design and that owl! YUMMO!!

    Too bad with the PC stuff but good thing you figured it out - hopefully :)

    I started an FB account for hubby the 1st of Jan. He finally decided to open one cause his friends kept asking if he has one and I'm one of those ppl who only adds my own friends. I see no benefit of adding his friends that I've never met or have only met once. Hubby tells me I'm the FB bitch but hey, I actually like interacting with my FB peeps and don't care for ppl who doesn't interact back or know well -- except for family. I'm kind of stuck with them, whether they interact back or not, ha! I am really good at ignoring and removing ppl too. I give them 6 months if I add. If no interaction - DELETE :)
