Thanks!

On the topic of tight budgets, something that I've found useful in
collecting my (now fairly huge) collection of beads (non-PC).  I go to
Claire's (yes, that junky boutique meant for the Brittany Spears set)
and haunt their clearance racks.  Every month or so they run a "10 for
$5" clearance sale, when they need to clean out inventory.  While most
of their stuff is usually not my style, there are often beads that are
salvageable.  I can get at least $20 worth of beads (based on the usual
"bead store" prices for similar items) for that $5, sometimes more.

I got a lot of my batiked bone beads, pendants, and other interesting
things that way....

Glory Be Lady - You got IT!!!!

That was what I was saying and if there are people out there
who are paying hard earned money for what I and others call
garage sale quality, then I'm really behind the times, 'cause
I think I could be making a fortune right now on every auction
site on the internet.

As far as hurting someone's feelings all I can do is apologize for my
caustic comments. It wasn't so much meant to be a slam on your
work, so much as an amazed reaction to, "people pay good
money for that?" kind of thing and we've all thought that before.
Hell just look at that silly boogie bass thing that people are
buying now!

Apologies, apologies, not that it does any good for me to apologize,
but I'm trying.

Max (Maybe who should be called Mad Max)

I wouldn't single anyone out for comment, but
it's pretty obvious there are also a few Suzie Homemakers out there
who think their creations are the cat's meow, when in reality their
stuff is better suited for their next yard sale."

Sorry guys, i just read the thread right now.  When I said that
Phrena's work was beautiful,  I really meant it...coz' if they're not
worth selling...or plain ugly, then I wouldn't say they're beautiful or
wonderful!  Phrena, i still say keep up the good work.  There are
others out there with not so wonderful creations and still a lot find
them pretty.  Good luck!

It is nice to hear complements about

Hi Varda!

Gosh, I hope I didn't sound defensive!  I honestly thought your stuff is
beautiful (I envy you talent)...and since I don't have much access to RL
 clayers where I live, I'll take advice when and where I can get it,
especially from people whose work I admire.  I only wanted to explain my
background (since it's probably reflected in my work, such as it is).

Thank you for your honesty.  I value that above all else.
