I am trying to take Krafty Max Originals to the Next Step!  If you can pledge – even a $1 really helps.  But, SHARING, POSTING and just COMMENTING helps so much too! So please, come over and view my campaign and make a comment!  THANK YOU!!
So, as I was finishing up last night I thought about how I should show you the differences and they way these two stones looked together.  I will try to take the ‘working’ photos from now on side by side.  I know it is hard to tell for this angle, but the one I am working on now is ‘fatter’ and smaller….so the count that is allllll different!! Please come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page, I post ‘working photos’ throughout the day!
Yesterday I showed you a couple of delicate new beadwoven earrings….today I will show you two more styles!! YEP!! And if you haven’t checked them out, they are only $16 a pair!!  And, I can do them in ANY color you would like for the same price…so just let me know!!

Yesterday I introduced to you Ms. Allyson from HeartFelt by A.  Today I would like to tell you more about her!  
Even as a child she loved sewing, but hated dealing with the raw edges of the seams, so when she found felt everything ‘clicked into place’ – no fraying!! 🙂  Like many of us she learned how to sew from her Grandmother and loved to make her own clothes.  When she made a little felt squared quilt that was stuffed with fill she started to see the ‘joy’ in felt.  Even today, she still uses a pin cushion that she made to match the little quilt!
So seeing a tutorial on how to make a felt garland about a year ago she discovered the joy again.  She had only hand sewed felt up to that point and as she machine sewed the project, she realized that she love the raw edges!! Felt was like not other fabric she’d ever worked with on the machine before.
So as the past year has gone by she had gone from hand cutting simple circles and triangles to detailed names!! And as you can clearly see in all of her creations she puts her LOVE into each one!!  Please go check her out (remember to tell her who sent you) and think of all events or holidays that you could use her beautiful creations for!!
Today I would like to leave you with thought;

Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you make the effort to become the best of which yo are capable.  ~John Wooden
