November Vlog Part 2

Good Evening Crafty Friends,

I hope you are all well and have had a good day.

What a day, not stopped until about 3 o'clock when I finally sat down and had a lovely cup of coffee.

The weather has been atrocious and I got wet a few times.

Tonight I am sharing part 2 of my November vlog.

I had such an awesome response when I decided to stop doing them that I started them up again at the beginning of this month.

I can't thank you enough for all the support you have given me with my You Tube channel and hoping that next year I will achieve 2000 subscribers.

Now in my video I mention that I will be starting to pick one random commentator per month and send them a piece of my art work be it a canvas, card, tag etc.

Thank you for stopping by today!
