Hmmm... i saw your clips on Etsy. Beautiful! I wish I can make such delicious looking snap clips. I swear that was what I did. Glue, Press, Glue, Press. The bumps are from the clips though, not the glue. My snappie looks diseased.

Thanks dearie! I can't get fabric tac here, and I have not patience for e6000 (what a wonderful crafter me! LOL) But I am going to try your method in a while.

I was awake till 5am last night. What time is that on your end? I paid the price this morning with stumpy toes, disappearing ankles, tree trunk calves. The water retention for this pregnancy is bad... I feel swollen.

You are half right there!!!! DH is French. And the only reason I used "bleu" was because I ran out of ideas for hotmail ID. Everything darn creative ID I had in mind were taken, even "Bluecows".

OK... "bluecows" is NOT that creative...
