    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Rebecca wants to know: "What is your worst crafty bad habit?"
    A: My worst habit is definitely not putting supplies away as I go - sometimes the ideas are just nonstop, so instead of stopping to tidy up my space I just shove things to the side to start the next project. I typically have multiple projects going on at once!
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Kathy had some ideas for Liquid Shaker Cards: "I didn't buy hair gel. I used hand sanitizer and added a few drops of blue reinker! Worked fine. I also saw my bottle of sunburn gel and thought that would've worked well and its already blue!"
