Mine are ready and waiting to get bagged and for payday. I'm embarrassed to post pics of mine now after seeing those. Such gorgeous work.
Hopefully those that get the clips I done will be happy with them.

Mandi YouTube has been my best friend on learning new things to crochet. I learned how to make several different flowers on there. I can give you a link to someone's channel that I've found very useful! She's clear, concise and she slows her vids down so you can see clearly what she is doing. Once you have the basic stitches down, you're good!
I was crocheting in the waiting area of the doc's office a couple of weeks ago while listening to my iPod, I didn't want to stop when it was time to go to the back! I love it!!

Ms. P, I need some private lessons!!! LOL I've always wanted to try crochet - I LOVE the little crochet flowers. I use them on cards and canvases. As many videos as I've watched, I still can't get the hang of it. I think I need to actually see someone do it for me to pick it up.

i bought orginally the kniffty knitters to teach myself yup they still sit cause i cant figure out how to use those.

a new thread would be cool with videos so they dont get lost

Hey Sassie!
We are swapping out sets of 4. So there should be 4 of each creation in a baggie to count as 1 set. You can send as many sets as you want (as many people are in that group preferably), and you get back the same amount of sets.
I hope that just made sense!

Yes it did - but just a curtesy question I guess. I got some small butterfly dies, and I think only 4 small butterflys would be un-fair to the ladys who make 4 large ones? Thats why I was curious about that size wise.

Woo Hoo! I also got my scrapbook.com order today! I ordered the stickles organizer by Unhinged...it's the round organizer that holds 36 bottles. I got 2 of them. They look like the thing that CDs or DVDs come in for your computer. I'm going to go and play with it and see if it works well. I was hoping that they would free up some drawer space.

So far so good on the stickles holder. It doesn't work with the Studio G glitter glue bottles though. I have quite a few of those in addition to my stickles and liquid pearls. I have my liquid pearls in one and my stickles in another one. I need to order one more for my alcohol inks too. I have them stacked on top of one another and they take up less space than a small saucer! I love that!!
