Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a great ebook. I down load them to my iPad and then pick out the ones I like and delete the rest. No wasted paper. This is very nice because not many ppl bother with wreaths until the Fall. Then after Easter they are gone. This would help for all summer.


I find that projects are repeated so often by the time I have gone through the lists and looked at each one I am discouraged because I have already saved or rejected that projects maybe 2 or 3 times before.

I totally agree with Katie. I also give up looking at projects lists due to lack of time for opening each one individually, finding they aren't of interest, going back and trying again. A thumbnail of each project would make the site so much more user friendly. There are lots of good ideas that I'm sure I've missed due to this problem. This is not a rating for this project! It's a rating for site usability.

Is there anyway you could put out thumbnail views of large groups of wreaths - or any series, for that matter. Its time consuming to open each project seperately just to see if I even like it. I think I miss a lot because I give up looking at them. Thanks for considering. Great newsletter overall! I like receiving it and have given your link to friends and art teachers. - Kitty Lebens, NY.
