“Let’s shove George in a shed” campaign REDUX

**Update*** so I have had a few donations and George has been sold eight times now.  I am sincerely hoping some lovely, caring, compassionate, WEALTHY people will take the time to shove another dollar or two or ten or even a gazillion my way so that I can electrocute  electrify George’s new shed.  This will allow me some much needed quiet space in the house as George would spend most of his spare time in the shed making his  toys stupid models outside. Otherwise I am stuck with having to deal with models strung from the ceiling and boxes all over the floor until the shed is connected in a few months.

the original post:

So I was contemplating the addition of a paypal or go fund me link to this blog…sort of tongue in cheek…but then a few people have made mention that they wished to “monetize” their blogs and since I am usually a willing guinea pig for all their endeavors, they asked I do so and let them know if it “works”.

Now, the only thing I really need funding for is to add electric service to the shed I ordered for the hubby, Poor George. For those who just cringed at the “poor’ appellation, it is entirely because the poor man has been married to me for donkey’s years and has willingly put up with the embarrassments I cause him.

So, in the cause of electrifying Poor George’s shed/workshop I am adding a way for you, my adoring readers, to assist us.

It will help me as George will be moving all his models (tiny trains, boats, ships…they are different from boats he says…….airplanes, rockets and assorted equipment for making all these annoying toys) out into the shed….which frees up the front room in our tiny cottage so I can actually put my sewing machine on a table instead of the floor in the living room!

So here goes nothing!

If you wish to donate to the “let’s shove George in a shed” campaign, click the button below! Thanks!

*****well, that didn’t work..will return later to see if I cant get it working somehow. sheesh!***  ***okay the paypal thingy works finally*** 

***I took off the paypal thingy. No sense to do it as all of us are obviously starving “artists”………..just send good thoughts while I save the bucks to get the airliners off the ceiling!

      7. i know…stupid thing. wouldn’t let me put in a nickle either. I thought a 100 bazillion nickles could add up and no one would mind. a dollar is the least amount it seems.

    1. see if it is any better now. please? 🙂

      1. Ok, I’ve narrowed it down to the background being the bigger issue. Not the text. Any way you would like it to be just a tad bit lighter in shade?

      2. okay, I lightened it as much as I could and still keep a teal. the letters turn black if I get any lighter.
