Ever since I started publishing VIDEO instructions for my wire crochet patterns, its been such a struggle...
I know that when you watch them you think, oooo this looks effortless... well, its good that you think so, but the truth is that it was SO hard! yes. in past tense :)
Now its all behind me ! now I can start filmimg and publishing my video tutorials much more smoothly.
You must be thinking - what is this girl blabbing about ? a new and advanced software? what ?
well, as usual the most simple things are the most important ones.
In the past my hubby used to film them when he was almost literally sitting on my shoulder, we wanted the videos to look as if you watch your own hands working, we figured its the best way to study an new technique.
and then, about 2 weeks ago when I was putting a certain cabinet in order, i know its not spring yet but i was doing a tiny spring cleaning. I ran into a small tripod that came with the kid's old cameras (which i needless say are long gone).
I naturally wanted to throw it away (thats my role in our family) , but the other "residents" voted against it (thats their role in our family).
The next day, while i was exploring youtube "how to" videos , I ran into one that made me fetch the tripod, put it onto the table in the studio, and start filming, i located just in fro my hands .
The macro functioned fantastic , and in a matter of several hours i had materials for 3 new videos....
2 are already published, the YoolaFlower and the YoolaHeart , especially for Valentines,

This surprising wire crochet dreidel is a reminder of how incredibly inspiring I find my workshops.
Once more it proves that by giving and sharing you get back so much, and i will share with you a little story.
Last Friday I opened another beginners workshop , with yet another group with great ladies, one of them called Yoni (that by the way came wearing jewelry to die for , it turned out both she and her son are jewelers.... no wonder :), anyway, she told me that her husband collects dreidels , and that he has quite a few.
When the lesson ended and we were chatting, I suggested without much thought, why don't you make him one when you finish the workshop, you will have by then enough knowledge to develop such an item.
Then, a second later i told her, you know what, i know how to make one, im going home now and if it turns out nice i will send you a photo.
What happend was that even before lunch was ready , I already had my first dreidel done....
I didnt expect it to spin, so when my daughter made it spin i was even more astonished ... lol...
so here it is so you can enjoy it too,

Never too late for unique Holiday gifts :)
You were too busy,
you had too many options and found it hard to choose,
you were on a terrific trip to south America :)
you just couldn't choose...... probably another million reasons can be found, but the bottom line is the holidays are just behind the corner and you are missing some unique and original gifts.
what to do ?
option 1 : if you are crafty : try one or all of my Online video tutorials, you can make special affordable handmade gifts that will draw for sure some WOWs and WAUs
option 2 : if you look for presents for crafty people you can get them one or all of my tutorials, if they don't have them already I'm sure they'll be thrilled about it.
option 3 : buy a nice little box and print my special holiday gift certificate , this certificate will enable the receiver to shop with me with a pre-paid amount.
I offer 3 options : 39$, 89$, 129$ .
option no 4 : yes... there is yet another 4th option, pick the item / items you would like to give as a present, i will send you a nice high rez photo for you to print , you can then get a nice gift box at a local shop and put the print in it.
this will show the person you are buying for that you thought of him/her , bought them something lovely that will only be a little late, or in other words better late then never :)
Happy shopping !
