Craft Supply Love.. And Hurt In My Wallet for Rent-Time

Recently my Grandmother comissioned me to make three custom pendants with silver and bezel-set birthstone cabochons. So I figured out the cost and ordered the supplies when she paid me. But it turns out she only paid me for ONE of the pendants for now, so I had to rely on dearest Boyfriend to help me out with rent again this month! Dangit. Just when I think I'm staying afloat. -But- in the supply order comes extras... mmmm... gold, gemstones.. even my first <insert flashing lights here>diamonds</end lights>! Its 12:44 now and the mailman is usually done with the building's mailboxes by 1:00 and I'm chomping at the bit to go check. My package probably won't even arrive until Monday but there is always that hope that your sheer excitement will make it come sooner, right? A girl can always dream :)
