A Little Rant

June 8, 2008 - 6:00am

If I might...I would like to post a little rant. Being that it is my site, I am going to even if you protest a little. :) With the upcoming PaperTrey Ink monthly release coming up, it comes with a bit of a disappointment on my part.

I have been hoping for one of their sets called Out On A Limb set. (Note that this link may not work after their Re-Design). This Re-Design is what I am bummed about. They are splitting the set into two sets. Now I am on a craft budget and don't have the means to buy sets as often as I might like. So I try to buy in stages. I was going to order this set along with one for a friend for her birthday. Well, that is how I found out it wasn't available to buy right now. I was bummed. Ok, I thought. They are just doing minor changes. Nope! They are splitting the set. So now you can't get the set for $24, you have to buy two sets for $24 to get virtually the same thing. Yes, they added a couple new stamps and a few new sentiments, but now I can't get them. I guess I wish I was more on the ball and bought them before. (Maybe there is someone out there who is buying both and wants to sell me theirs for cheap!) But I don't want/need it badly enough to spend $48 on it, but I really wanted it for $24.

Since I do own my own business, I understand that this is better for them. If it were me, I would probably do it, too. I am just bummed from my perspective because I won't get it now. I am sure you are thinking...just get one this month and one next month. Yes, I have thought of that. But really, I probably won't. I'll just find something else to get that is similar to it and hold a grudge. I just wish the $24 for one set was still an option. (Maybe they have over-stock I could buy from them...hmm.)

So, if you read all the way down to here, i commend your strength! And thank you for letting me get that out. I just wanted to be selfish for a minute! :)


Boy, I didn't hear anything

Boy, I didn't hear anything about this. Then again, I'm just getting back from vacation and I seem to be behind on a lot! :( So sorry. . .and yes, you can "rant" on your own site! :)

I have also been waiting

I have also been waiting months to buy this set. I knew they were making changes to the set but I thought it was because there was some kind of mistake on the original and once the mistake was fixed it would be re-released. I have to agree I am more then a little disappointed by this news.

I am glad to see that I am not the only one! Thank goodness. I thought I was just being silly about the whole thing.
