    Thanks for the comments on my blog, and flickr! (6diamondsintherough)
    I was wondering if you guys are going to be using wooden spools anytime. I have about 30 old empty spools that my great aunt sent me and I have no idea how to use them!
    thx,
    Amy

    P.s. What does DIY stand for?

    You are so fun! I’m glad I’ve discovered you. I love making pin cushions and had never thought of using felt in the center. What a neat idea! To Amy–if these are old thread spools just put them in a glass jar and display them in your sewing room. Again, congrats on your show!

    I am glad to have found you beautiful girls. I am excited to learn from you. Are you twins or just sisters? Yeah, my first thought is that you were related to the Osmonds, but I believe they are a family of mostly boys. But you are even more beautiful than Marie. Thanks for the information. You are fun to watch.

    Just watched your 1st episode of DIY for the 2nd time and I just loved it that is why I had to watch it again the 2 of you make it so much fun. Would love to win one of Heather Bailey pin cushions kits or an embroidery machine which I have been shopping for. I took my husband last weekend to look at the JANOME emboidery machines. Can’t wait to own one!!! Keep up the great work!

    You two really have created a fantastic group of DIY websites. I love how natural you both are and think it’s great that you are eager for feedback and are ready to adapt. I was thinking I’d make it a goal to do every project when you do your webisodes, but if I heard you right, you said you’re going to do them weekly? Ackkk! I’m going to be busy (and maybe even productive!) It would be nice to do something with my fabric…besides just buying more. Thanks!!

    Hi. I really enjoyed your first show and will be looking forward to the next one. I am a teacher in Saudi Arabia (American teaching at an International School) and I would love some easy craft ideas to do with my third graders! I especially loved the turtle pincushion!

    I really love the cake pincushions. But I can’t take my mind off the big one. Any instructions for it? My daughter wants to have a tea party and she thinks that will be perfect. And I agree with her. I can see so many uses for the larger size layered cake. Thanks again for all you have done to inspire us all.

    What a fun show! I’m envious. Only suggestion I would have from a technical point of view is to have a few close ups as you demonstrate your projects. Looking forward to more.

    Hi Kim and Kris! I love what I’ve seen so far! Love the pincushion idea and although I was sketical, thought the pins were very cute! Who would have thought shrinky-dinks could have so many purposes. I have a comment or suggestion, if you will….I’ve noticed in both of your instructional videos that often you show something you’ve done (for example, when you drew a flower to make a pin) you hold it up to show, but don’t give a close up of it. I’m not sure if you are using a tri-pod camera or if someone is taping you, but it would be helpful if you could show close-ups of the things you are showing. You did do that window pop-up of the pin through the shrinky-dink…that would work too. But when you just hold things up to the camera when it is so far away, we can’t see it! Thanks for sharing all the great ideas…I’m looking forward to more!

    I just loved your show, and think you had a lot of good comments and ideas from others.
    I do Custom Embroidery and love to take time just for myself.
    Your show is going to be my time to get away from it all, and just do crafts that I love to do for Christmas gifts. It is a fun way to shop for friends and family that also like handmade crafts.
    I look forward to your next one, and would like to thank you for spending your time with others.
    I do like the clock showing how easy, and how much time it takes to do a project.
    You girls are great.

    Just finished watching DIY Dish Episodes 1, for the second time. I was as impressed as the first time. Your Second Helping was also very informative. You both are naturals in front of the camera. The project was cute and your instructions were simple and easy to understand. Thanks for doing this for us!

    You can make some really beautiful and interesting dolls by stringing empty wooden thread spools. They can be painted or have fabric for clothes and yarn for hair glued to them. You can use a spool for the head or attach a large wooden bead and even small wooden beads for hands and feet. Glue dots for eyes or mouth or just paint them on the spool or bead. Hard to find wooden spools to make them. Count yourself lucky to have so many! They used to be so plentiful–like flour sack clothes. 8:o)

    Love the show, I’ve watched it several times. I am trying to make the pin cushion look like a cake, but it is going slow. I love the idea of the shrinky dink and the pins, and the flowers. I simply love your show, thanks.
