The chains are marked on the charts with little ovals. You usually have to count those to find out how many to start with. (unless the pattern writer is nice and tells you how many are there!).

love! We're probably going to decorate our new house before we even unpack anything else. We love Halloween! And it will be our first home with a mantle so I'm pretty excited to try out some of your techniques :)

No videos have been removed but yesterday I noticed some of them were taking a while to load so you might wait a couple of minutes before reloading the page. If that doesnt work, all the videos are on www.vimeo.com/craftyminx and you can search for the ones that are being slow on the website. Sent from my iPad

Traditionally in the top is the correct way and the other ways are modified to make it easier and/or give it a different look. Since you dont have difficulties with it you can totally keep doing it that way, the other ways are just other options. Sent from my iPad

This has to do with the glitter. It's a trial and error thing. the bigger the glitter pieces the more likely they will curl in the polish. There are some that won't but you just have to test them and see. as for the bleeding it's the same. some glitters (usually the cheaper kind) bleed and some don't

Just noticed this comment. I think my e-mail stopped notifying me of comments for some reason this summer. I put some thinner in it and poured out what I could. Then just mixed stuff into it. You can always buy some clear bottles, they are a few cents a piece.

Hi Sherry, Im not sure why this keeps happening on ipads, the videos are set up for mobile devices. Something that has helped other people is to download the vimeo app and look for the videos under my username craftyminx. Youll have to go back and forth between the blog and the videos, but you should be able to watch them that way. I hope that helps!
