Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

I Haven't Written About This In A While

I've written about a couple of websites where you can actually earn a few dollars to help feed your fabric addiction (come on, admit it, you know it's an addiction!) but I haven't said anything about them in a long time so I thought I'd update you guys on how I'm doing with this.

First of all, there's Swagbucks.  Over on my right sidebar you'll see this button that will take you to this site.  Ya'll I've only been using Swagbucks for a few months but already I've earned almost $100 in Amazon gift cards!!!  I don't know about you but I love Amazon for great deals on quilt books as well as items for gifts or for my home.  And Swagbucks is so easy - all you do is do your normal web searches on that site instead of Google or Yahoo.  I have it as a shortcut on my computer now so I click there anytime I need to do a search and it randomly bestows Swag Bucks for those searches.  And if you tell your children and your friends to sign up under you and do their searches there you will earn Swag Bucks for their searches as well.  Obviously, I have a few people signed up under me or I wouldn't have earned that much.  But if your children and grandchildren are computer-aholics like mine they can earn you a few points themselves!  It's worth your time to check it out...just click on the Swagbucks button on my right sidebar and you can sign up under me!  And thank you in advance if you decide to do it.  :)

Then there's MooLaLa!  There's a button for it on my right side bar too.  This is a recent addition to my earnings, like only a month or two, but I've earned over $6 with this one.  I know that's not much but I figure it's half a yard or two fat quarters.  :)  This is a Deal-of-the-Day thing but with a difference.  For instance, one day recently they had a $50 gift card to Cold Water Creek for $25!  I don't know about you but I love their clothes...and that's like getting something for half price.  I do love half price.  One time every day you get an e-mail from MooLaLa telling you what the deal that day is.  If you like it, buy it.  If you don't, delete it.  If you buy it you not only get a good deal, but you get 2% of whatever you paid returned to you!  And if you get friends and relatives to sign up under you (similar to Swagbucks above) and they decide to buy something, you get 2% of whatever they buy!  They've had a wide variety of deals...everything from organic foods to jewelry to baby clothes.  And last week they had a donation to a local children's organization that I bought - I paid $5 and someone matched it so the group got a $10 donation for my $5!  On top of that I got 2% back.  Not only do you get money back on the people who sign up under you, but also on the people who sign up under them!

I don't get excited about money making ventures because my parents taught me a long time ago you don't something for nothing.  But these two things excite me because they make sense.  Read about them for yourself and if you decide to join, thank you for signing up under me!  And you're welcome for the savings I just showed you how to get.  :)
