  1. Good Gracious!! what wonderful news and events all around!!! Bava!!!

  2. Can't wait for your DVD. I really enjoy your blog, you inspire me. Thank you

  3. I searched out a back copy of the Cloth Paper Scissors magazine I was so intrigued with the recycled circles - a download would have been so much easier!

  4. I GOT IT (the download version)! Hurray! I have been waiting to do one of these "circles" in a long time. This is going to be my very first project in 2013. Greetings to you all the way from Germany.


Thanks so much for visiting!
