  1. Hello Dear Jooles,
    First... Mrs Grossman's stickers.... has a website !!!! and there are VERY sweet teddy bears that have little red hearts on their chest. Also, Amazon has her 'Teddy bears at a Picnic ' stickers. But, oodles of her stickers on her web - you should be in HEAVEN.
    Second.... YES to ardvark - just PRECIOUS - as you said " get cracking !! " ( * ; * )
    Third...of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, I am thankful to you, Jooles, for your lovely soul and great talent and utter charm. Your podcast was absolutely wonderful. YOU are a gem, I appreciate you, and I love spending tea time with you. Wishing you all the best. Marcia

  2. Hi Jooles,
    Thanks again for such an inspiring, entertaining and sweet podcast. I do enjoy catching up with you, and the urge to do my own podcast is growing ever stronger. It seems like such a wonderful way to interact with this great community of crafters.
    I would love to know where you got your sweet little bunny pendant that you've worn in a few episodes, it really looks like the absolute cutest little piece of jewellery! Anyhoo, thanks again and I look forward to your future episodes!
    Jo x

    1. Hi Jo
      Thank you so much!
      My bunny necklace is from here .....
      love Jooles x x x

  3. Hello Jooles, Another lovely episode, Where did you get that advent calendar with yarn? I think you showed it in this episode. I'm very scatterbrained lately. You deserve to eat that maple candy, lol. Maybe the aardvark needs a little time out, come back to it later. Thanks!!

  4. Hello my lovely x
    The yarny advent calendar is from Norah George yarns ..... it's very exciting!
    Goody, permission to put the aardvark in time out ;o)
    love Jooles x x x

  5. Such beautiful treasures you make!! So excited to watch your latest podcast, they are really fun and lovely and you are the sweetest person! If I should not be able to get one of your project bags on Friday can I place an order for one? They are just so pretty.

    1. Hi Kathleen ..... thank you so much x
      I'm sorry, but at this time I have made the tough decision not to take custom orders, I will be continuing with project bag updates though as I have SO many ideas!
      I hope you understand ..... this may change one day.
      love Jooles xxx
