Awesome!  I laughed out loud when I read your description.  Something tells me she was hoping you would keep it as is?  Unless she's imaginary- in which case pretend I didn't say anything.

well since i can see you are a crafter, then i know that you will take care of it.

But she's right!  You will take care of it!  Especially now!  Roll Eyes

Great job.

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

Looks great!

I'm the same way in Charity shops. I'm always nervous to buy things - thinking that somehow the sales people can read my mind and know that I am going to tear all the books and things I buy apart  Tongue
