    Preference re Nuvo Drops is Gliss, 5hen Gliiet then Pearyl (13 November 2016)

    I am addicted to Tonic Drops, especially Gloss drops. Because Nuvo Gloss Drops form PERFECT Acrylic Dot shapes - they are vastly preferred over the Nuvo Pearl finish and Glitter drops. Pearl Drops dont always form a perfect drop. They leave a little frosting or chocalate chip type pointy peak on top too often. Nuvo Glitter drops are my second favorite. Yet they tend to spread and flatten irregularly more than Gloss or Pearl.. They do dry sparkly bright though. Glitter drops also dry with a rough surfice if that matters to you. My top faves are Tonic Glossy Drops! Oh my! They form perfectly every time right on my project as needed. This saves me the bother of pre-making and storing them. The rich colors & shine make projects pop. Gloss Drop's consistency (so far) remains consistent bottle for bottle. I hope Tonic releases dozens of new Gloss Drop colors very soon and corrects Pearl and Glitter drops to form perfect "dot" drops each and every time direct from bottle to project. They have a great product going here!

    Recommend the brand & concept. Like the Glossy Drops Best (13 November 2016)

    The Nuvo Glossy drops are vastly preferred over the Nuvo pearl finish drops and definitely oreferred over Nuvo Glitter drops.. The Pearl Drops dent easier, dont always form a perfect drop and sometimes leave a little frosting or chocalate chip type pointy peak pointy on top of drop when dry. The Nuvo glitter drops are my second favorite. They tend to spread a bit and flatten some while drying. yet remsin sparkly even so. The glitter drops also dry with a rough service not a smooth one as acrylic "dots" often do. My top favorite are the Glossy Drops. They make projects pop and add that great unifying finishing touch. The consistency of Gloss drops is consistent generally bottle for bottle. The consistenvy for Pearl Nuvo drops may be a tad dry and the pearlescent or metallic feature should be more intense in my opinion. I hope Tonic improves the Pearl and Glitter Drops and produce dozens of new colors in Gloss Drops.

    Clever Factor is worth 5 stars! (13 November 2016)

    I like this small stamp's message so much I just had to buy it. I have not yet used it so can't rate its utility but I am pleased as punch with the sayings.

    Nicely Nordic in tone (25 November 2015)

    Probably would not have chosen this if it wasn't specified in Shimelles JYC "kit" but I do like it and wish i'd bought one more sheet.

    Just okay but nicely retro. (25 November 2015)

    Bought these for Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas 2015 class. They were included in her Kit Picks for JYC 2025. Her prompts have us look to the past for stories and inspiration to reflect and illuminate us in the current holiday season. For this reason they are perfect. I especially like any sparks of gold, silver and clear acetate which appear on some of her JYC 2015 Kit picks. I probably would not have bought some of her retro Xmas line if I were not participating in her class. My favorite retro period is Victorian to 1920s. Many of her deaigns and choices this year will be great for scrapping memories by those of us who were children from late 1940s to 60s and 70s. Some of her bright picks this year are more shiny, gold and trendy. I like these of her kit picks best.

    Love these Jillibean soup Cardstock Soup Label Sticker sheets (08 August 2012)

    These small sticker sheets are really cute. They match other "flavors" of paper of course. I bought one each of six different Jillibean Soup cardstock sticker sheets and one each of six different Bite Size Bits Journaling sheets .Each are adorable. My absolute favorite Soup Label Cardstock Sticker Sheets is Funny Sayings JBE8845.

    Very cute, great quality paper (08 August 2012)

    Honestly these are a little too yellowish all over for my taste which doesn't show up (in my mind) in the product picture. Yet this sheet is very cute and I will use it with my Close To My Heart papers somehow. Maybe since it has a fall theme it should be sort of harvest gold. Hmmm

    Don't recommend these Spring The Beadery Beads (08 August 2012)

    I just realized I clicked 5 stars on the white beads by this maker in this same configuration. Me bad. Should have given them 1 star only.

    These are bigger than I imagined but that is my fault since the size was given me. They are extremely cheap looking to me, almost to the point of ugly. No, in my mind this set is ugly. The white ones are better looking by a hair. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. They might look great to someone else. Wish I had not ordered this color and one other from this maker. Sorry I couldn't be more positive on these two purchases.

    Scrap-MaBob is as sturdy as it is practical (08 August 2012)

    I am in the process of renovating a bedroom into a craft room. This will be great to keep beverage rings off my new desks and litter off of the desks as well as the floor. The trash bag is larger than I expected which is a good thing.

    Good rrollabout & fit for purpose (28 April 2009)

    I bought this as part of my Closets Reorganization project figuring its very square cavernous storage on wheels could roll in and out efficiently with a shelf system placed just above. Scissor pockets are excessive and other storage not brilliant but okay.
