A person can certainly learn from a DVD or videos or a book. But it depends on your learning style. Most of the handiwork that I can do - I learned from a book. I've learned lots of cardmaking stuff from videos or written tutorials. Some people need hands-on teaching. I feel like you would be able to do it.

Some people might need that. I didn't have videos back when I was learning handiwork. And I didn't have someone nearby who could teach me. The videos should be more helpful than just a book was. Of course having someone there to guide your hands if you're not getting it right would help too.

Still photos in books have confused me with knitting and crocheting in the past - they were fine for embroidery when I used to do that but I could not quite get the hand and needle placement down. I thought maybe videos would be like someone sitting there if they zoom in enough at the right angle.

I think so too. You might need to search around for the best video(s).

Whooo hooo! What a great way to improve a gloomy day than to read through several pages of chatter to find out I actually won something! I love me some Kitchen Sink Stamps! They're like magic!

Oh yeah, Traci, high five!

I don't think we heard a time. Today's timing worked well for me, if that matters to anyone!

Nothing wrong with repurposing!

Last week I saw a really nice IKEA unit waiting for pickup - it matched the pieces I have in my craft room and is a discontinued collection so I was PSUCHED. I opened all the drawers and inspected it - nothing wrong with it, NO idea why they didn't want it anymore, called hubby to ask him to swing by their house on the way home - not more than 10 minutes later a van with a handicapped plate stopped, driver inspected it and LIFTED IT INTO THE BACK OF HER VAN (ummmm, guess her hubby is the one with the disability? LOL! I would not have been able to lift that and I was told I didn't qualify for the hang tag.) Had to call hubby back and tell him not to bother, wasn't available anymore, LOL!

Sheri -- good find!!! I am not above that myself. I have this gorgeous painted tin tray - like 24" by 40" - big enough to sit on top of my bookshelf and look really pretty. The paint was chipped in places but I touched it up. Picked it up right out of someone's trash pile. Yup. Happy day for me!!

LOL @ Sheri..... thats tooooo funny...

hey we have the "bring out ya dead" once a year on the curbside to throw out your old stuff and "pickers" roam around.... we slow down and spy on things too saves it going to the tip... we saved time (but not money) on a garage sale and turfed very good furniture... too unwell at the time.... and it all went within 24hrs.... happy it went to homes...

I would have sat with it too!! Its the golden rule!

OK, there is no way I have time to read the 20 pages I missed today while I was at work!
Anyone have a summary? My only report is that I stopped at the grocery store after work and somehow managed to buy four types of cheese, including some Laughing Cow, which just happened to be on sale!

Wow, I step away from the computer to get some dinner (left over meatloaf from one meal and leftover pinto beans from another) and there's a ton of posts and even more winners! Yeah!

I hope I didn't miss out on any recipes. My son (sort of a picky eater) has given me the go-ahead for the broccoli cheddar soup and the beef stew. I was looking forward to making them for a rainy weekend, but now it's down to 20 percent chance of rain on Saturday and 40 percent on Sunday. Oh well... we can pretend we're eating a rainy day meal.

LOL, that's okay, if she was willing to break her back to put it in her vehicle she earned it

I am super late to this party, but eek! I'm not sure what is more exciting-- my prize, or my 1983 views!

I am impressed!! I just about managed to find and re-size a suitable template to try the honeycomb ornament from the holiday blitz - no way could I have made a card!!
