    These ideas are AMAZING! Can’t wait ’til after the holiday rush to take a little time to play with some of them! :-)

    As always, thanks so much for sharing!

    Omg, I had to write to tell you about how incredible this bars are! I have been using them just a week now, they feel so good on my skin, they’re hard to stop using! But most amazing part is the way they made me feel, I truly did feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude and love….out of nowhere it seems.. I suddenly started remembering people in my life I had not thought about in awhile and I called them to tell them how much I appreciated having them in my life.

    I’m as green as Kermit the Frog! Made ribbon rose pins/hair clips for granddaughters and coworkers + all my Hide A Heart products are green because they are REUSABLE! Hooray!

  4. says

    Thank you, thank you for another great collection of projects. So many wonderful gift ideas to make when I can take a break from sewing aprons.

  5. says

    So many brilliantly creative ideas. Actually, like the shrinky dink bracelet shown, I learned making shrinky dink magnet somewhere else, and I made some for my Etsy shop thank you gift;-) I have so much fun making them!
