Almost best craft e-book Review by Judy Nelson-moore

Daniela's style of teaching is very generous...from how to to inspiration. Sometimes I am disappointed by light weight content in downloaded video or PDF books, but this one is wonderful. I would have put 5 stars except that the PDF cuts off some content in more than one viewer that I have tried. Page 128 for example. You can't see all the content on several pages
