  1. I have loved your website and really appreciate all that you do to teach us all kinds of fun crafts.
    However, I “HATE” the Cover Girl mascara advertisement that is across the bottom of your pages. I know the “rent” helps cover the cost of your website but kit is totally distracting.. I will buy” that mascara because I dislike the advertisement so much. That and all the pop-ups on almost every site makes me want to give up the internet.
