Three bears all dressed and posted off on Monday. I am finally managing to get some work done.

On a serious note, last week I had a big fright, someone managed to get hold of my debit card details and was using my card to buy all sorts of things. The bank stopped most of them but a few got approved and now I have no money in my account and have to start going through the process of trying to see if I can get any of it back.
I am lucky I suppose that being a poor artist my bank balance was not very much but in some ways it is also worse as that was all my money. Really sad.
I had to get a new card and now have to start the waiting game to see what happens. The really scary thing is that I am very careful and only buy from reputable shops online but obviously criminals can get information from any where.

We found some of our kits in one of the boxes we were unpacking, so will start putting them in our Etsy shop to sell and hopefully the unpacking will reveal the other kit and pattern boxes.

It was lovely to meet you and thank you for visiting Faerieluna.
I am sorry to hear of the debit card problem. This is what I did after losing my debit card once. I do all my banking online...so I opened a a savings account that had a debit card attached to it. Because you can then transfer money from one account to another, what this does is if you loose you debit card or see something is wrong, you can push most all the money immediately from the checking account that is in danger, right over to the 'safe' savings...and you still have access to it with the special debit card. I keep that debit card at home in safety so that nothing happens to it. Does that make sense? Good luck to you and I love your little critters...you do wonderful work.

Oh, I am so sorry for the debit card problem. We bought LifeLock. I wonder if that is enough now...they say its a good idea to change the banking numbers every 6 months...not very realistic. Good luck!
