It was my lucky day on 21 January 2012 as I accidentally visited Simon Says Stamp eBay store and discovered that they are having some auction!

Since these three (3) items ended first, I e-mailed Simon Says Stamp eBay store the next day to inform that I will wait for the Hero Arts CL372 Oceans of Joy to end on 30 January 2012 before making payment for the items I won. But there is no feedback from them as during that time, it is a period for Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Winter 2012 at Anaheim Convention Centre. I guess all the staffs has gone to CHA.
I bid Hero Arts CL372 Oceans of Joy on 30 January 2012 few hours before its end as I need to go out and do not know if I can make it back on time when it ends on 11PM. Although I installed eBay mobile on my smartphone, I still not confidence I would win this item which I really put a very high hope. At the time of the bidding, there is no other bidder yet. Well, it was disappointing as I lost the bid without monitoring it! I totally forget about! When I got to know, I am really upset and keeps scolding myself for forgetting as it was ended at USD$6.49!
Since I did not win Hero Arts CL372 Oceans of Joy, I requested Simon Says Stamp eBay store to send me an invoice for the combine shipping the next day. However, there is no reply from them as I believe they are still busy at CHA. Finally, on 04 February 2012, eBay sent me two (2) e-mails stating that they have opened a case for unpaid item for the cling stamps and requested me to pay for it by 08 February 2012. Immediately, I messaged Simon Says Stamp eBay store again informing the condition but no reply as it is weekend. On 07 February 2012, Simon Says Stamp eBay store finally e-mail me to inform that they sent me the invoice. I made the payment on the same day and revert to them. The next day, I was acknowledged that my items has been shipped.
This time shipment is fast as I received the parcel about seven (7) days! Now, I have some new stamps and inks to play with!
