YouTube Videos Coming Mid-April 2021
We all love watching our favorite video content on YouTube and if you're anything like me, you have quite a few crafters that you watch regularly. I hope that I become one of your favorites.
My YouTube channel is up and I'm collecting followers in advance of my first video publication happening the week of April 19th, 2021. Please consider subscribing and hitting the notifications bell so you're one of the first viewers to welcome me into the YouTube demonstration and tutorial world. If the notifications bother you, by all means turn them off...but consider keeping them on for the month of April as I'm more likely to go live or post premiere videos (with live chat w/me) outside a regular schedule. =)
