  30. Picked up my copy on Friday....loving the chapter on milk glass and the doodle portion where you made wire frames....something about the graphic nature of black and white is so appealing!! I gave a shout out on my facebook page...best wishes! See you at the flea markets!

    ReplyDelete
  31. adorable !I love the idea of something that gives me a litle bit of focus and inspiration for my treasure hunting, and my favorite part is " flea market find...your style." That is what makes a home authentic and truly darling- not looking for things to match a picture, but learning how to find things that you like and craft them into something beautiful in your own space....and I have learned so uch about that, for myself, from you and NieNie :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  42. i would flip it around. I think people want to see examples of projects or crafts first. Also it might be a good idea to show one example... you could show just part of the example but the video wasn't compelling with just the images.
