  29. An awesome video from Kathy here, that´s for sure. I´ve had a bunch of Le Plume markers for a long time, but admit, I´ve never been really happy about them, but now I´ll really have to give them another try, I think. It just looks so easy, when Kathy use them here, so it´s probably all about practise, I think LOL:

  47. It’s the perfume way that is set to speak up your emotions. Without having to speak a single word, the perfume makes the presence felt. It’s the stuff that everyone reckons as the most special accessory, and the class that perfumes show seriously matters. A visit to the link at www.rightperfumes.in is certainly a purposeful one the visitor.

  57. This is a brilliant idea for people just starting to use alcohol markers - for a long time there has been a need for an alternative to the double ended ones already on the market which tend to be expensive. Kathy's video is first rate & it was so helpful to see the way she personalised the project with her signature white dots.
