I might as well get something for that waste of money Barnes & Noble membership! I got an email coupon for a free Frappuccino at the Starbucks Cafe. Of course, i have to get it by Sunday. When the new Barnes & Noble opened last year, I had a momentary loss of sense and purchased a membership. I hadn't planned on renewing it and they automatically deducted it from my credit card which ticked me off. Then a month later I got the renewal in the mail.. (Wrong address). So they are making money off of me this year because I don't buy enough to make up the $25.00 membership fees with the measly 10% discount I get with my card. I always have to learn things the hard way.
I mailed my quilts off to Vermont. Stupid, Stupid, Stupid. I paid $18.00 each to enter them, then I had to send $15.00 each to ship them back which ended up being $19.00 each for the additional insurance. $15.00 flat rate. Then it cost me around 15.00 each to mail them. All for a grand total of $104.00!! If I had been smart enough to get my calculator out before now, I would have pulled the entries and quit while I was ahead. Luckily, I learn by my mistakes.
Art for Art's sake is sounding better everyday.
