    I just discovered your site through the Good House Keeping site. What a find. I am interested in your videos. Can you notify me when you update them.
    I also perused your web catalog thoroughly. And found things I have been searching for. Are there more items in you catalog? If so how would I get one? I hear mention of a show room. Could you tell me where it is located,

    What is the best way to hang a pendant on pretty ribbon that ties around the neck? in particular I would like to know what kind of fabric to use to make a pretty, soft, (maybe 4″) necklace that would offer a soft, feminine look without fraying at all where you cut the ends.

  11. Saeco says:

    This is the first time I comment on your site, but I’ve been reading it for about a moth. I admire the passion with which you tell your stories and dream that someday I can do the same. Love

    I have a rhinestone stud setter and need to put rhinestones on some tshirts for myself. I have used the iron-ons and everything went well. However, my granddaughter and grandson are in sports so I need to put their team name on my shirts. I hate to pay $30 plus dollars for two tshirts and two sweatshirts. Is there a DIY video or online SIMPLE instructions on size of rhinestones to purchase and how to spell out a name and attach rhinestones. Brenda

  13. Thank you for these tutorials!! I am going to try the chain bracelet ASAP!

  15. I’d like to try that zipper belt. It’s kinda interesting. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It would be of great help.
