Stash.....

All of you mothers out there know how we(mom’s) seem to take care of everyone and always seem to neglect ourselves. I was recently given 200.00 that I was not allowed to spend on bills or anyone else… it had to be spent on me.

Well I bought myself some over do things…. Socks, underwear and bras….
But I could not help but also buy some Stash… I do not get that opportunity very often and there is so much out there that I could not chose what I wanted so …..
I decided to try out some grab bags/surprise boxes from some companies…
Experience with ordering stash online.

Stitching bobs and bits - paypal payment - took forever to get my package but was satisfied with what I received in my 25.00 grab bag (prior experience)
- credit card payment - extremely fast receipt of package and am very satisfied With my 2 - 15.00 grab bags… this is what I got this time. (see pic below)










Herrschners - bought 2 surprise boxes one regular and one large and received it in acceptable time with wonderful items. (see the below 4 pics)

I STARTED THIS ONE! (WIP PIC LATER)
<---------





The Crafter's Mall - my only complaint is that they did not update their site as to when the package was mailed... I had to email them to find out when it had been mailed. grab bags were ok. I ordered 2 of their 9.99 grab bags. (see2 pics below)










The stitchery - my only complaint with them is that it took 10 days for my credit card payment to clear and also got no idea when my package was mailed until I emailed them....

although when they emailed me back they said it was mailed on the 25th of July and it actually got delivered on the 26th of July... (that was fast)
Their 29.99 grab bags was pretty good.
Oh and today the 28th I got the email, I guess they send to everyone saying your order was shipped today.LOL

I also received from another private source…
