Where Things Are....Let Me Explain.....

Ok, so I get a lot of emails asking questions, so I think this is easiest and less time consuming than trying to answer them all individually which just makes everything take more time or else feels like I'm ignoring you all. 


Here is how it all works: 

Step #1:  You all bid on items and are SUPPOSED to send me your email addresses WITH your bidding name.  When you do THIS it puts your bidding name with your email into my email box.

Step #2:  I go through and get all the winners of those who bid BEFORE midnight.  If you bid after midnight they do NOT count.  I have people who bid after and then don't realize it. 

Step #3:  I take those bidding names and enter them into my search to email you about your winning items.....  (When people do not email me, then it slows down the process and I have to try to go through LOTS of contacts and asking around to try to figure out who those people are.)

Step #4:  After I have to wait to get the receipts back from where the winners actually paid for their items in order to send the information to the donors.  I found out last time that many donors would prefer to go to the post office in just a trip or two (which makes PERFECT SENSE), so I try to wait till I have at least more than a few receipts trickling in to start messaging my wonderful, amazing donors about the items.  It just keeps it from being a long while between them hearing about items.  It often takes a while to hear back on payments though, because people take a little while to pay.  Not a biggie, just the way it is!

Step #5:  I have to send the addresses to the correct donors.  Shouldn't be complicated.....Except most people seem to forget that I need the addresses.  lol  If they don't send them with their PayPal receipt, then I have to message them back and wait again.  Some believe I'm sure that I should have it from the last auction if they bid before, and some just forget entirely, but even if I had it before then it is in a file from that auction amongst back and forth emails and it would take me forever to dig out. 

So, if you are wondering where we are in that process......Mostly I am trying to do step #5, but I have a few people who I never was able to notify bc I didn't have an email (just about 3 people)....So if you never got an email saying you won an item and you think you did, then contact me.  You could have tried to send an email and the email monster ate it in cyberspace!  lol

If you've tried to message me and ask about where we are in the process, then I apologize if I haven't gotten back to you.  All of those steps are pretty time consuming and a lot of emails are exchanged getting all the receipts.  I am trying to go through all the receipts now and that is not easy and other emails get lost in the process until I get to them while going up through.  The more other emails I try to respond to, the less time I have to get these steps completed.  lol  If you are a donor, then watch for the addresses.  I've either got them or I'm waiting for them.  Some have been sent out and other emails have been sent asking for them.  :) 

Love all of your hearts for our Hidden Treasures and I'm so thankful for all of you!

Yes, that is huge in bringing Mikah closer to home!  We'll have a final total as things move forward with the payments. Thank you all so much for everything you have done and continue to do to help all our Hidden Treasures!!!

That's Another GREAT Auction and Time is UP!

Time is Up and Bidding is Over!!!


Thank you all so very much for making this auction another amazing success in helping another child get a step closer to home! 

I will be contacting winners and getting them the payment info.  If you have not yet sent me an email so that I can contact you, please do that NOW.  :)

Last Day!



 

 
Last Day!

Today is the last day for the auction.....  There is so very much listed



 




We have had a lot of bids come in, but we need more.  We have a lot of items that need YOU to come and see them and help bring Mikah home.....the biggest of which is an awesome getaway!


The linky list never made it up......  I'm going to have to work on that situation......  Both of the people who are usually available to help me with that were away from their computers during this auction and never got to it.  I do the rest of the auction by myself, but that aspect I have relied on others for some help.  I am going to have to "learn to linky"....  The good thing is that most auctions never have them anyway....  and you all are very proficient scrollers!
 

So, come on out and help make this last day a huge success!!  I know you are going to do it!

I'll email you after the bidding is over with your totals and payment info!

Thanks so much to all of you!!!

Notecards by Krassi Done in Color of Winner's Choice

Notecards by Krassi
in Color of Winner's Choice
 
 
 
 
These notecards were a hit in our last auction and here is another set!  They were made by a child who was adopted from the same orphanage as Mikah! 

He will paint these specifically for the winner of this auction and this picture is of the set from the last auction.  PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION FROM HIS MOM!

*They will be very much like the ones he did for Brandon's auction, though because they aren't made yet, the winner of the item could have some say in color choice. He can paint on yellow, bright green, bright pink, or white paper, and the winner could have their choice of pretty much any three colors of paint. (Three colors tends to give the best results - doesn't get too muddy that way!)*
