  1. I sooo enjoyed your new video format! It’s nice to see your face too! Thank you for all the sharing you do. I have been able to improve my crafting space and my crafting skills. Keep doing what you do!!! You are blessed!

  2. Thank you for that awesome video! I have a question for you. When using my beloved Versa Fine ink on clear stamps I sometimes get little fibers like mini eyelashes on the cardstock. What are they and how can I avoid them?

  3. Loved the video. I like how you have everything listed at the bottom. Your craft room is to die for!

  4. Jennifer, Thank You for this informative You Tube video. It helps expand my card world. I would love to have you do this periodically. I appreciate you.

  5. Love the take 5 video….looking forward to many more! You did great in front of the camera just like you do behind the camera.

  6. Kind of long. I love the idea though! If you were to cut it shorter, I could do without the products you love, and/or the questions/answers. To be honest, I rarely watch the videos that showcase products … I don’t need any extra encouragement to shop! lol Thanks for everything you do!

  7. Loved take 5. It’s obvious you put in a lot of time and thought into making it. I found a lot of useful information in the video. You did a super job and shouldn’t feel shy about being on a video. Who knows? Maybe you will become a famous television crafter!! Thanks again for all the useful information.

  8. I loved every minute of it. Thank you. I immediately went and ordered the From Me To You stamps for my best friend for Christmas.

  9. I thought your video was wonderful! I watched it twice while I was washing my dishes – there was so much neat information =)

  10. JENNIFER,
    I AM SO IMSPIRED BY YOUR CREATIVITY, ORGANIZATION AND PERSONALITY.
    YOUR IDEAS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL, FUN, FANTASTIC AND CREATIVE.
    I WISH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY A HAPPY AND SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON.
    THANK FOR THE LINK TO CARING HEARTS CARD DRIVE.

    THANK FOR BEING YOU!

    P.S. I LIKE THE VIDEO ON YOUR TIPS. GREAT !!!!!

  11. What an awesome idea! Enjoyed every moment of this video. As a fellow introvert (extreme introvert) I seriously applaud your efforts of stepping outside your comfort zone. You did amazingly well and it was honestly such a treat seeing the face behind the voice. Don’t fight what comes naturally to you, if talking with your hands is your thing or playing with your hair don’t fight it – current research shows that these little things actually help us speak better – so take that grade 3 English teacher who told me not to fidget! Haha 🙂

    Thank you for sharing, as always these videos are so much appreciated and very much enjoyed! Have a fantastic week Jennifer!!

  12. I like “Take 5” a lot! You cover a topic in a very focused and thorough manner, and then move on to the next one. You really covered a lot in a short amount of time. Another thing I like is seeing your “agenda” posted along with all of the links. This makes it easier to go back and find something to view again at a later date. This wouldn’t be possible on Periscope, so you are doing this in the perfect format on your blog. Thanks, and I look forward to the next one!

  13. Wow! I love it and very well done. Thank you for sharing all the info and tips. I always feel so inspired by you! Stick with the concept.

  14. Just love your Take 5 idea. I love being able to see you. You are truly a natural in front of the camera! I always look forward to your blog posts (I receive them via email) and I save them to read as my last email to read (saving the best for last)!!! Thank you for taking the time to do this for us.

  15. Excellent! I enjoyed hearing your Take 5 video so much- in fact I listened to it 2 nights in a row while I did my stretches. So much information done in a fun way. Thank you so much for coming up with this format, and I appreciate that you put so much time and energy into it. Bravo!

  16. Engaging, entertaining, informative! The 15 things you share with us: fabulous. I’ve come away feeling inspired and motivated. Thank you…looking forward to the next Take 5!

  17. Great video! I especially liked the info about the postage stamps and the stamp company that makes the dies to build little trees. Thanks much for sharing; am looking forward to seeing the new blog 🙂

  18. Of course I loved this! You are a natural in front of the camera–At least it comes across that way. 😉 I loved all the tips and links! Thank you! <3

  19. Excellent job and an excellent video, Jennifer. This is a super idea. I’m a big fan of your tips and how you showcase products that you like. There is so much out there, I welcome the opportunity to hear from someone who actually uses these products. This is not the cheapest craft to get involved in, but it is very satisfying and relaxing, too. Your Online Classes have helped me in so many ways and so have these videos! Thanks for what you do so well.

  20. It’s so wonderful to see your face in a video 🙂 your voice drew me in to your card videos, so it is nice to see your face and voice together. Any awkwardness is so charming. Reminds us that we are just all sometimes stumbling through this craft world together. Please share more take 5 videos. 🙂

  21. Great video! You definitely rocked! Your card videos are great, but this is something nice, as well. Once a month would be perfect.

  22. Take 5 Crafty Talk is great. Loved all the awesome things you shared.
    Looking forward to the next one. Nice addition to your card videos which I absolutely love watching.

  23. Great idea, hope you will do more Take 5 videos. You presented it very well too, the camera loves you. I think your website is very good at present, I can search for videos on products or techniques you have used before, a good selection will come up. Look forward to see what the new website will look like!

    Interesting that Zig also do pearlescent paints, how do they compare with the Finetec pearlescent or metallic paints?

  24. This new feature is absolutly AWESOME!!! I think a lot of crafters from all over the world watch your videos and enjoy getting new input. I especially liked the CNN Crafting Article because I’m a psychologist and can just say YES hearing what positive impact crafting can have. THANKS for taking the time to letting us peek into your crafting world!

    P.S. Don’t be shy. You are doing a great job in front of the camera! 🙂

  25. Simply marvelous, great job, not a sign of uncomfort in front of the camera. It was as if we were sitting across from you having a coffee break, with delightful crafty conversations. I’ll bring some desserts to go with the coffee, next time….lol

    Love the 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1….wonderful concept, loved every section of this video. I learned a lot! THANKS for sharing some of your precious time with us.

  26. Loved the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 video! You look totally relaxed and natural behind the camera. Thank you so much for sharing and being a constant source of crafty inspiration! I’m looking forward to the next one.

  27. Loved the video! Thanks for answer my question regarding ink organization. I finally took the plunge and loaded up my three new Organize More shelves with all of my ink pad. I am a happy camper today!

  28. What a great idea, I think it was well done. You covered 5 things, and it was informative and had lots of info with links too. Thank you again for sharing.
