This was the first online class I have taken and it was worth every penny. Can't wait to try to make my own ornaments. I love how Mags shows you what to do and, more importantly, what not to do. Mags shows how she tried different methods to get the best result. Very enjoyable.

Thank you so much. We would love to see what you make. :)
