Love these 2 videos of yours, I can get a much better idea of what your space is like from a video than from a few still photos, so thanks for taking the time to do this.

Questions:
At 6.59 mins - hooks?  what hooks? Plus at 7 mins there are two strange thingies, look a bit like pots, but they have 2 rabbit ear shaped thingies at the top - what are these?

Plus at 8 mins you talk about a strange bottle, but you never say what is IN the bottle (and it's too fuzzy to read the text on the bottle) - you are using it to clean your rubber stamps on that thing with the two pads - you mention them as "Wet & Dry" - what's in the bottle?
I probably can't buy that here in the UK but I'm interested in it none-the-less.

You mention doing a more in-depth video - yes, I personally think you should, in these two you're really only brushed the surface, just showing us the ouside of various containers arranged in your crafting space without saying what most things are - or how you made or where you bought storage solutions.
(That last isn't so important for me as you are in the US and I'm in the UK so I won't be able to locate where you got your storage from, not having anything like the same shops). But it's going to be of interest to US crafters, and the make-your-own stuff is interesting to us all.

The few questions I HAVE asked are just a drop in the ocean to what I COULD have asked.  Just FYI.

Really, REALLY missing your "how I did this" videos, I hope you are okay? If you are, is there any chance of a new video soon? If not then I hope you get well soon, and not just because I want one of your demo videos.

Great end result on your mask, I watched both and liked both but I have a blue affinity so this is my favourite. (but only just).  I haven't tried doing a mask before, I might try that one day now.

Oh dear... I just saw this video today then went off and searched for an online test (actually I was just looking for info, and found the test) and according to that test I have a high probability of ADHD - well... at least now I know why I'm so up and down.

I was just thinking, when you showed the double metal dipping pots that you clip onto the palette, you menioned oil mediums, I've always used Liquin and Linseed oil in mine (and I usually had another pot with turps in it on the palette too).  It would be great if you could do a comparison video on the various different oil painting mediums, and what effect they have, like liquin, stand oil, poppy oil, Damar varnish, Cold Pressed Safflower Oil, and mixing your own recipes for various effects.  Or have you already done one?

+thefrugalcrafter Lindsay Weirich How about this Lindsay? Oil painting has much nicer smells than watercolours do, it's more forgiving than watercolours since a mistake can be scraped off and painted over much more successfully than with watercolours.
You could get more into oil painting, find out what you think of the different mediums, varnishes and background preps and then do a lovely video for all of us oil paint lovers! ROFL! I just like listening to YOUR videos.
Truth to tell I do go back to oil painting now and then, (and sometimes watercolours & acrylics) but these days I'm concentrating more on Polymer clay and getting into working with metal. I was just curious as to what you thought about Poppy oil, Damar Varnish, Liquin etc etc... but if you don't use them, don't worry about it. Our local art shop sometimes does pay-for classes if I REALLY want to know more about oil mediums. But it wouldn't be the same as one of your videos.

Sorry for asking, but the break in the video removed the info on how you made the thingie for the stick pins (dunno what stick pins are, but I'm interested in storage ideas.)

Oh and on the previous video you had lots of tiny bottles (love to known what's in them! They look like alcohol ink.) some upside down, and some right way up - but all sort of hanging suspended on the inside of the doors.  (Other things are also suspended inside the doors, I expect you did these the same way.)

How did you do this?

Love seeing other peoples storage and work areas, thanks for uploading this.

That's one of my favourite song's too, in fact when I first started this playing and realised it wasn't 'Big Yellow Taxi' playing, I went and found it and had it playing at the same time as I watched this journal page develop.  I hope I didn't miss much of the explanation (but I saw the text anyway).  Great page by the way!  Brilliant idea.

I was so sure I'd posted here, but I can't find it.  I was going to say that I ordered a pack of these as soon as I saw them on this video, it took 2 months but I've finally got them - they arrived today.  I think it's time to open the black clay again!  Woopeee!  Thanks for posting this, or I wouldn't have even known about this selection of pearl-ex.

+Fran OnTheEdge I've noticed it's the harder set to find, Fran that's for sure.

Thanks so much for posting this, it's fascinating to see how you progress through building a piece like this, you gave me confidence to try something with more than one part to it.  I think mine may be a little to big to wear so I'll have to try again, a little smaller next time, but I do like what I ended up with despite that.  Thanks for your generosity in posting things like this.
