December 4, 2012

Well, it's been a week or so since I've blogged. I've been deciding how to move my website (QuinGem's Creations) onto Blogger. I renewed my 3 domain names (quingem.com, quingem.info & quingem.net,) but not the hosting with GoDaddy, due to some of their positions on censorship last summer. SOPA, anyone? Ugh.
I'm not going to abandon the 3 blogs that I have, but since I can have 100 blogs on Blogger ... I will be making one just for the website this weekend before the hosting expires on 12/12. So, QuinGem's Creations will still be found at http://quingem.com
quingem.net will somehow be made into a blog for all my artwork, including all of the Incredimail stationery that I've made over the years - it will be an adult site due to some of my nekkid male artwork. That will take a while to get sorted as I have to find a site to store the files that I'll be linking. I also have to sort out my 4Shared site and my PhotoBucket site since my Picaso site is full to the brim! This will all be ongoing for the next month or so, but hopefully, all will be set up by February! So, stay tuned!!
In the mean time, check out this adorable dollhouse! It would make a great Christmas gift for your favorite little doll!

November 24, 2012

Well, I got shelves for the doves' cages and I didn't even have to put more holes in the walls. I ended up getting some decent metal shelves that are adjustable that are pretty sturdy that worked. Next will be changing the crappy curtain rod and getting new curtains for that glass door. I have a new rod, but still trying to find the curtains I want ... might have to make them.
I just discovered that I'm at my 1GB limit for adding photos to my blog with Picasa! I deleted a few older pics, but I'm going to have to find another free storage site to link my future pics to! Sucks! Guess I will use my old PhotoBucket account for a while.
I have added a pair of Kirk Douglas novels to my Bonanza shop.
Tomorrow, I'll be adding another year of Ceramics magazines to my Listia shop.

November 23, 2012

I hope everyone is having a safe holiday weekend. I stayed home and read. Now, I have to catch up on a few things. I have several sales and swaps to package up to mail tomorrow morning. Then, I will get to adding a few more things to my shops.
The seed starters I mentioned in the last blog, I won't be able to list after all. My mom decided to keep them.
I have listed another set of 5 Amber Glass Dropper Bottles - Used on Listia. I have a lot of these. 
Also, on Listia, I've added another year (1984) of Ceramics magazines, so just go to my Listia page, as there are quite a few!
Tomorrow, I have a couple of shelves to build in the doves' room as they are now in the separate cages and I want those on their own shelves rather than sitting on the big cage. I want to fold that one up and put it in the shed. I'll take pictures when I have them up.
Hopefully, it won't be an all day job and I'll be able to list a couple of things in my Bonanza shop.

Today, I've added four more Martha Stewart Living magazines to my Listia shop. Two are still in their original plastic mailing wrapper.
Martha Stewart Living - October, 1996
Martha Stewart Living - November, 1996

 Martha Stewart Living - December, 1996/January, 1997

Martha Stewart Living - February, 1997
Tomorrow will be a long work day offline, so I may only get one or two things listed (I hope!) I have a couple of seed starter kits in metal canisters I hope to list in my Bonanza shop.

November 18, 2012

It took a while, but I think I've got my Bonanza shop cleared up. There were a few things I had already sold offline and forgot to remove, plus moved some magazines to my Listia shop. Will move more during the week until they are all off of Bonanza. I also found some more Martha Stewart Living magazines that I'll be listing tomorrow.
So, I've listed some Ceramics magazines from 1983 to my Listia shop. My mom, aunt, cousins and I used to make a LOT of ceramics. I still have most of the ones that I made and many of my mom's and aunt's. Most of them are displayed on shelves in the dove's room.
Speaking of the doves. Big Boy, Little Boy, Little Girl and Squabbie have all moved out of the big cage and back into regular bird cages. I never did get around to eating Squabbie this summer! So, he's obviously here for the duration. He's rooming with Little Boy, now (in the white cage.) I think they are happy. Any eggs that Little Girl lays will now be eaten. ;)

November 17, 2012

We're still having some lovely rain here in sunny CA. More expected tomorrow and later in the week. Love it!
My mom insisted on getting another microwave today. Ugh. I'm not happy about that. But, I did find 2 really nice glass water dispensers to replace the plastic ones! I am happy about that! One will be for water and the other for tea! They hold over 1 gallon each. I hope to get a couple more before next spring, so we can have 2 in the fridge and 2 on the counter. I also put the bookcase together (the one that hurt me last week moving it up the steps!) and moved it into my mom's room. She's happy. Now she can move all the cookbooks out of the cupboards and store more food!
Anyway, I just listed five cat magazines on Listia.
Cat Fancy Magazine October 1999
Cats & Kittens Magazine January 1999
 Cats & Kittens Magazine July 1999
Cats & Kittens Magazine September 1999
Cats & Kittens Magazine May 2000
Tomorrow, there will be an update of my Bonanza shop to remove several items that are no longer available. I will then be adding a few pieces of ladies' clothing from my aunt's estate.

November 16, 2012

I didn't get anything listed yesterday, obviously! I am having some issues with my neck, so didn't do much of anything. Today is a bit better, but still painful. But, I am listing!
Today, I have a cute American Wego #2127 stuffed bear up in my Bonanza shop. He is a fun, floppy sort of bear waiting for some hugs!
I've also added a book to Listia.
My mom keeps finding that she has duplicate books. This is one - In My Wildest Dreams. It's an historical romance.
Tomorrow, I'll be adding a few 1999-2000 back issues of various cat magazines to Listia for the cat lovers!

I decided to just list all the collectible pins in one large lot of 30. They are all from the Lions, Lioness and Leo Clubs from the 1980s. They are all California district pins, except for one. My aunt, my mom and I were all founding members of the River City Lioness Club. These were all my aunt's pins. They are all in very good condition.

Tomorrow, I'll be listing an adorable American Wego stuffed bear in my Bonanza shop.
