  • I LOVE THESE!!! Just what I need to keep my ‘to send’ cards from my ‘keep because I love and can’t part with them!’ cards. I re-make some cards again if I love them so much, and them I can send! Plus I’m re’organizing my 2 craft rooms, or rather 1 craft room, and my ‘old’ dining room. I didn’t eat in it, so why waste it?? It’s making an awesome room for my work desk, and stuff I need within an arms length when putting my cards together. I thought that was pretty smart of me : ) I enjoy all your videos, have learned so much, you give me so much inspiration, and have helped me get my ‘mojo’ back! Thank you and Vinnie for coming into my home and giving me ‘smiles in my day’.
