Default Check this out!

OK - you will not believe this when you see it!

I have been looking at this ladies work for a long time and she does some very beautiful stuff. I have never purchased anything but love to look at it and get ideas. I am sharing because I can not believe how much people are paying for these things! She is a very sweet person that I have chatted with via email (for reasons other than her items!). And very very talented as well!

I wanted to share because I think that a lot of ladies here make items just as beautiful and I wanted to let you know the value of what you are making and giving away!!!!

Now she does remove her pics right after the auction but you can get an idea from the description and then go check out her other auction that is going and you will have the full picture!

I have seen her auctions before-really beautiful.

And I also agree that many of the ladies here make equally awesome stuff that would fetch high $$$ if sold.

Her stuff is great!! I am curious about something....I noticed she has copyrights on her hand made items. Can she copyright stuff made with items from manufactures that already have copyrights on their papers? Okay, that question probably didn't make any sense. I'm just curious for example, if she uses basic grey paper (or KI, Making Memories, etc) to make a journal and then puts a copyright below the picture.....it seems kind of like us making a card w/ SU stuff, it's SU's copyright, not ours and people can duplicate our cards (by hand) until the cows come home.

Anyone know about this type of thing?

Wow, it is already up to $280.00! My computer wouldn't upload the photos in this auction but judging from the photos in the gardners journal auction, her stuff is quite nice! I don't think I would pay $280.00 for a planner, but each to his own I guess!

This is absolutely true. Do we underestimate the time, effort, and love that go into our work?? It's a little hard to put a price on it sometimes. (Just dealing with eBay is worth something?) The final bid was nearly 10 times the starting bid! Someone must really appreciate hand-made quality!

Melissa,
This one just started today!

All of her work goes for a great price!

I totally believe that there are a ton of very talanted ladies (and gentleman) here that could totally sale their work for a handsome price! I just think that sometimes we don't even think about how valuable our items are. I know when I make something for someone I do not think of its value in $ but in how it makes me feel knowing I have given a piece of my heart in what I have created. And hopefully it brightens their day as well.

Now if I were very creative (like many of you are) I would totally consider selling my "works of art" in order to generate more funds so I could spend more in brightening the days of those I love and my SCS family!

I thought we couldn't sell cards and stuff on the bay with pictures. Legally anyway.

This is not made with any SU products. If you read the description she's using KI products.
