  1. I guess I've been pretty lucky and have never had rude comments from non miniaturists. I am my own worst critic.
  2. I did support the strike and it will be interesting to see what happens with all this. However for many years now I've been getting more and more annoyed with ebay and having to go through a bunch of junk listings to get to what I wanted which was NOT the big power sellers but just individuals selling things. I also couldn't believe when they started doing the check out these auctions things on top of sales. I couldn't believe that junk. The seller on that page is paying for that auction, not to advertise for businesses. I've been on ebay almost since the beginning as well as paypal. I dislike
  3. Jeni, If you have a second checking account you can open a personal account as well. Have your payments sent there for everything but the auctions. Kathy
  4. We just had that happen to us recently. We've gotten so now we only accept paypal because people sometimes tend to take their time paying when they have to send a money order. A lady bid on the item we were selling and in bold lettering it says paypal only. She won and when she went to pay for it paypal told her she had to upgrade her account. Somehow she had gone over the limit and had to add a bank account. As you said it takes days to do that. So I did let her send a money order. Next thing we put up on ebay she went and bid again. Fortunately this time she had her paypal straightened out.
  5. One of the very few times I've ever had issues, because like you I never order something unless there is enough money in my checking account to pay for it, is when 3 of us placed an order together. I ordered on my debit card and somehow hbs went and managed to charge it twice. It was over a 200$ order so no I didn't have that much money to go through twice. There was enough to pay for it once. I wasn't a happy camper. Kathy
  6. We have much in common besides loving my son. We also both enjoy basket weaving. She's expressed interest since I've known her in having a dollhouse some day so I'm thrilled that we'll also be able to enjoy this hobby together. Kathy
  7. P.S. She and my son and 2 of my grandsons live in Okinawa. Kathy
  8. I want to warmly welcome my wonderful daughter in law Yuko to the forum. She's been wanting to do miniatures and I sent her the trailer kit so she'll be starting it soon and she'll need lots of encouragement and help. I'm really glad you joined here honey. You'll love it and I gave my friend Bec your user name and she's also added you to her friends list. BIG HUGS, Mom
  9. You're welcome Heidi. As I said I think I recall having to use that route to get my address confirmed but made sure to do it before I needed it and not in the middle of an ebay transaction lol. Let me know if it works out for you. Kathy
  10. I just went into their help section and found these two things. Have you followed all of this through? Copied from Paypals help section. Q How do I confirm my shipping address? Question : Answer : A Here's how you can confirm your shipping address: 1. Add a credit card to your PayPal account. By adding a credit card to your account, PayPal can attempt to confirm your address with your credit card company. If the credit card company is not able to confirm your address, you may be asked to complete the Expanded Use enrollment process to activate your credit card.
  11. That's why I usually watch the travel channel, animal planet, HGTV and food network and sci fi channel to sometimes. I haven't watched any new weekly tv shows in quite some time. Kathy
  12. I hope she comes home safe and sound. My SIL went last year for 6 months. He's special forces. One good thing came out of it though. We finally made the decision to move here near my daughter as a result. He's gone so much that I really felt the need to be here for her. She's had 3 surgeries with him gone. With no one here to take care of her the second time around. I came for the first one and stayed 12 days but she still wasn't up to par when I had to go back to TN. Well he was there he reupped to retirement. It's in his blood. Not sure what he'll do when the time comes to retire in a few ye
  13. Lol, my daughter and I are so excited because it's the first halloween we've lived close enough to decorate together in over 12 years. So we've hit Michaels, AC Moore's, Target didn't have anything yet and the Spirit Halloween store. It's only open at this time of year and it's LOADED with goodies. She's gone crazy buying including a fog machine and we can't wait for October to get here. Kathy
