My Contribution

Right now I have $67.54 in paypal.

That might not seem like a lot of money to most of you, but to me that's huge.

Generally when I make a few etsy sales the money that I have in paypal gets spent as it comes in, whether on milk and bread, supplies, or a treat for myself.

We're going on vacation in a little over 3 weeks, and I'm very proud to say that the money that is in paypal will help to pay for it. It's not the monetary value, however, that thrills me. It's the fact that I am able to contribute in some small way that I'm not normally able to do, and all the while I am contributing by doing something that I love.

That's what is huge.

It's taken 3 different etsy shops and 206 sales in my current shop, but I finally feel as though I've accomplished something. And that will make this vacation that much sweeter.

Funny, when my PayPal gets over $20 I think I'm rolling in dough. It usually gets turned right around to buy supplies, but lately, I've banked it. Not for any great reason like your vacation...just to see if I could leave it alone!

You work hard, you fully deserve to reap the benefits of your hard earned money. I hope your vacation is a GREAT one :)

My paypal money is golden for me. I completely understand. More than $5, and I'm rich.
