| Overwhelming Response
I was just going through my email from the weekend and was hit with more beautiful pictures of embellished ladder stitch bracelets! I am not sure I have ever made a video with such a pictorial response! It is so amazing that you all continue to encourage me with the videos, but the fact that I see almost instantly what you all have created, is really overwhelming to me!
I sometimes feel challenged as to what to bring to you...can I do this right, will I look stupid or am I confident enough to do that on video! It really is a process to put yourself out there like this. I struggle many times just to get it right. I tend to be a perfectionist in certain areas of my life, my beading being one of them, though not perfect indeed. But I want things to be a certain way or I will not do it. So the encouragement, the emails, the testimonials, if you will, that I receive from everyone that watches my videos really means a lot to me, so Thank you!
Keep the ideas coming, continue to encourage each other and I hope that we can all continue to inspire everyone with our ideas!

The embelished ladder stitch is on my list of things to do thanks to you. I'm the one that worries about how my projects will turn out but with your help I'm encouraged to try. You've no idea how good you are at what you do. If it wasn't for your videos I wouldn't have tried to do the things I do. You're an awesome teacher. Not everyone can get you from start to finish the way you do. Thanks to you my beading is going places it's never been before. Just wish there were more hours in the day for

Karla, I can't tell you how helpful you've been in demonstrating all those bead weaving stitches--and don't worry about the little glitches--we all make similar little errors and correct them as we go along.
I noticed a beautiful ring mounting and stone on your finger in the brick stitch ring video--do you sell the components on the Aunties Beads website? Please let me know, or even better, will you be making a video for it?

I decided I wanted to make beaded bookmarks, and I have looked all over the internet and in my library of bead books (which is extensive) Your video on the
beaded bookmark is incredible in that it goes into all the details in a clear way. Then, I discovered your video on how to do crimping, which is also the most clear I have ever seen. Now I am excited to look at more of your videos. I have all these beads, but I get intimidated by them. Karla, you have given me confidence.

Well Ms. Karla, you are one amazing and inspiring woman. As stated in other responses, if all you need is encouragement, you got it. I am so new to beading. I have no confidence in myself to make something beautiful like you deomonstrate. It took my friend Leslie (who's a member) to come over and make me try something. We made rings and earrings. I then went back on to Auntie Beads to see what you had in store. I started watching your video on the Tila bead bracelet and I called Leslie and

Karla videos are best.My beading class agrees, she is smart and knowledgeable but she doesnt have to over do it with the know how that confuses all of us..She is too the point but carefulknowing when to shut up and bead. Good work Karla you are the best one. RC
