I still have Sweepstake prizes to get out in the mail-about 75% done.  In the meantime, let's line someone else up to get a flat rate brick full of free cards.  The blue refractor of Kennedy is #'d to 199.  Take your best guess at the serial # on the Ian.  Closest without going over will win the booty.

Enter until 5PM Saturday Central Time

Hobby Promises

Still packaging and getting out packages from my contest, hope everyone enjoyed it!

I have been thinking about this post for  a few days and finally got around to blogging again.  I find myself often making myself hobby promises.  They are usually consistent with:  I will do this from now on or I won't do this anymore.  I also often find myself breaking these promises. 

I have pledged many times to stay away from the retail trap but I never seem to stick with it long.

I also tell myself over and over again that I'm not going to hoard junk that doesn't fit into my PC's and I also usually break that one too. 

I"m curious am I the only one that falls into these traps?  I would really like to box everything up that doesn't appeal to me and send it to a more deserving party but unfortunately the USPS doesn't accept good intentions.

I have two LCS within driving distance but they don't update often and I'm not into buying the hot new thing and prospecting.  That's why I often end up in Target buying junk I don't need. These moments of buyers remorse often leave me feeling sour about my hobby. 

Resolutions for the rest of the year:

Spend more money on shipping cards than buying cards
Only buy cards that appeal to my PC
Trade more buy less

Where is Stuart Smalley when I need him???
